Practical Preservation Series – “Historic Renovations Without Historic Mistakes: Navigating Challenges”

November 28, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Save the date for Tuesday, November 28th as Daniel Bird, owner and founder of The Dan Company, speaks at our next Practical Preservation Series meeting!

The ins and outs of historical renovations are complex and often filled with unexpected twists and turns. Construction has evolved considerably over the past century, and with the multitude of historic properties in Franklin, starting your renovation equipped with the knowledge you need is the best way to ensure a smooth and stress-free project. Local general contractor Dan Bird of The Dan Company addresses common mistakes homeowners make when pursuing a historic renovation and how to plan for success.

Dan has been in the construction industry for over 25 years, cutting his teeth in the trades as a carpenter, painter, plumber, and all-around handyman. After years of traveling and fixing homes across the US from Alaska to Maine, Dan settled in Nashville in 2004. He saw the need for honest construction practices and wanted to build a haven for a talented workforce. With these goals in mind, Dan has created a better business model for his employees to have a career, not just a job, and he believes his customers’ needs and homes are sacred. Since founding The Dan Company LLC and receiving his General Contracting license, Dan has helped many clients achieve their home renovation dreams. When he’s not out in the field, Dan enjoys playing guitar  and spending time with his wife, Karen, and their four sons.
