At a young age Brad developed his work ethic and love of woodworking from his grandfather. After graduating from Calvert Hall, Brad went to Elon where he played football. Transferring to Towson University, brad began to work in the construction industry and developing his skill set. Brad now owns Bluefin Contracting and Development. A licensed and insured company that has built exquisite million dollar homes in the Baltimore area. Woodworking is Brads gift. Meticulousness, knowledge and passion are what sets Brad apart from the others.
Ashley began to show her love of the arts at a young age. Since early childhood she has always loved music, art and literature. She has always liked things that are vintage and have a story. She is a big believer in spirituality. Bringing furniture and other rustic items back to life is truly her calling. She believes every piece she works on has a story and is trying to bring back its beauty and charm. It is for this reason that we call her the furniture whisperer. She believes that the piece will tell her its story and how it should look when she has completed it. Ashley is a mom with two teenage boys named Blake and gage. They are also very important in her life and are a big part of her story. Ashley enjoys the interaction of the business and working with clients to make their heirloom something special and something that they will cherish for the next hundred years.
Brad and Ashley fell in love and joined forces in life and in work. With Brad’s woodworking and design skill matched with Ashley‘s designing and painting and refinishing knowledge, we cover all aspects. We teardown and salvage old homes beyond repair and prep the wood for either our building of furniture, reclaimed moldings for homeowners or sell as is to a buyers. We offer nationwide shipping on all furniture, boutique items, paints and raw materials.
It their free time Brad enjoys offshore fishing and they both are huge music lovers and enjoy going to music festivals together. We also enjoy spending time with our teenagers (if they let us) lol.
Since both Brad and Ashley have a love for Grateful Dead, coming up with the name of their business was easy and ……….Attics of My Life was born……
