Brian Taylor began painting custom Homes as an apprentice in 1994.
After spending 2.5 years in the residential market he grew a sense of pride in craftsmanship. Brian went on to broaden his experience working with a large scale commercial/industrial painting contractor. In a few short months Brian was advanced to Foreman and with a desire to learn all aspects of the trade worked with his superiors to take their experiences and grow from them.
In 2000 Brian started B. Taylor Painting, Inc. and he worked alongside his crew. His customers were happy, but Brian found himself having to look for new jobs as soon as the current project was completed.
When a four‐wheeling accident landed him in an arm cast, he was forced from the ladder and spent his time working on his business. It would be a better move than he imagined. He met with customers and built relationships with potential clients. He found that having his crew do the painting while he focused on management was a better business model.
In 2005, Brian moved his family and the business to the Coeur d’Alene area in northern Idaho. The company have since grown from 20 employees to over 80 employees, as the business has expanded up and down the West Coast. Additionally, a second company was formed called Freestone Reconstruction. It is a general contracting company that focuses on dry rot repair and reconstruction in Northern California.
