Anthony was born in Portland and grew up not too far away in Oregon City. As a toddler, he watched his dad work on every house the family has ever lived in, and around the time he could read he could never put down the old DIY home remodel books his dad had that he used to get into construction/DIY home remodels himself. When Anthony finally could use the internet and had access to a computer as a kid he would scour the internet for woodworking projects and try to build treehouse plans he found online on his own with what little tools and materials his money could buy. In high school, he took a construction course and in his first course he built a model home using only plans, measuring tools and a chop saw. After a few months, and some trial and error, Anothony had built a model 2,500 sq ft home framed all to current code. He advanced so quickly through the all courses that he was the first freshman that got into the final course in a seniors’ class.
