I’ve been doing designs for Hudson Remodeling since 2003. Charlie Hudson was actually one of the first contractors who hired my company, Silva Design, to do some design work. I still do some of that on the side, too, in addition to managing remodeling projects.
I speak three different languages, and often all at once. I’m Russian, but I was born in Estonia. I grew up speaking Estonian, which I learned from the kids at school, and even my mom couldn’t understand me. I don’t really speak Estonian anymore, but now I speak English, Russian and Ukrainian.
I like demo days when we get to remove built-in plywood cabinets with seven layers of lead-based paint and replace them with modern, clean, custom cabinets.
