Tim Ellis has always considered it very important for T.W. Ellis to stay on the leading edge of the remodeling industry. His goal is to provide you—our clients—the knowledge, expertise and professionalism that will give you the beautiful finished projects you desire. For this reason, Tim actively participates in the National Association of Home Builders Remodelers Council (NAHBR). This professional trade association encourages and empowers remodeling companies like T.W. Ellis to reach high standards in their businesses. Another reason for Tim’s heavy involvement in the NAHBR is his commitment to continue raising the bar across the country for the remodeling industry in general. Here are a couple recent examples of Tim’s leadership:
Tim Helps Develop Education Programs
When a homeowner undertakes a remodeling project, the NAHBR wants to be sure it will be done in a manner both safe and affordable. This group oversees professional education for remodelers nationwide, helping them improve their business practices and technical expertise. Tim Ellis, a member of this year’s Board of Trustees, plays a critical role in the formation and further development of the NAHBR’s education programs. The photo shows him at the semi-annual board meeting, which was held in conjunction with the International Builders Show (IBS) in Orlando, FL in January.
Tim Installed at Chairman’s Dinner
Excitement was in the air at the swearing-in ceremony for the new 2017 Chairman of the Board of the NAHBR, Dan Bauden. Each year the installation of the upcoming Chairman is celebrated with a special dinner. This year the event took place at the New American Remodeled Home that was on display as a part of IBS 2017. Tim Ellis also participated in the ceremony as he committed himself to lead and guide the association as Chairman of the Board for 2019.
The New American Remodeled Home was a project undertaken by an NAHBR member and actively promoted by the NAHBR as a model for remodelers across the country. The house was built in 1987 using typical styles and materials from that era (stucco, mauve-colored carpet, and a segregated kitchen) It was totally transformed into a beautiful contemporary highly efficient home with stunning design.
