Things you did not know about ... John Bassous, contractor, Tierra Verde Builders

CAMP VERDE - With his wife Mary, Residential and Commercial General Contractor John Bassous has owned and operated Tierra Verde Builders for 16 years. But he has been doing construction for 37 years."At age 18, I did my first kitchen remodel project with a handsaw, hammer and a few basic hand tools, which I borrowed from a neighbor," he says. "I did not have the good fortune of growing up in a 'construction' family, so much of what I learned over the early years was by hands-on experience and trial and error."
