J. Boden

J. Boden (Justin) joined the US Navy right out of high school which sent him into several war zones and began a 13 year course headlong into the aviation industry. He fell into the construction trade by mere chance when a friend provided a job opportunity building aluminum work boats. Justin became fascinated with all things welding, fabrication and metalworking. However, 14 years of coming home dirty and several job related hospital visits left him wanting more than the field had to offer and so, in 2016, Justin began his journey into home inspections. Over the years and miles, Justin has called places like Washington, Alaska and Montana home. He now satisfies his affinity for nature living in Spicewood with his wife of 11 years and his dog.
