In Malcolm Gladwell's best-selling book Outliers, he talks of the magic number of 10,000 hours required to achieve to true mastery of any skill or subject. Scout's Honor Master Craftsman Jim Frazier easily makes the mark - and then some!
He began his vocational construction training in 1979 while a senior at Smokey Hill High School in Aurora, Colorado. In the years since, he spent time as an apprentice, learning and mastering each of the trades including: Carpentry and Finish Trim, Electrical, HVAC, Plumbing and Drywall.
Working for major home manufacturers and custom home builders he has framed and trimmed many hundreds of houses and estimates that he's hung, taped and textured ten thousand thousands sheets of drywall. His mastery of electrical codes and requirements is extensive as is his experience with all the important nuances of doing plumbing right.
Beyond the skill set, Jim Frazier is.how do I put this.a big boy scout. When you, meet him you'll quickly get the sense that he's a really good guy who's just darned good at what he does.
