Our Team

JOHN PIAZZA JR. & KIM PIAZZA

 

In 2012 my wife and I opened John Piazza Jr Construction & Remodeling, Inc. Over the years we have expanded our company both with the building we do as well as with employees. We build custom homes, remodels, additions, spec homes, apartments, and developments.

 

I have been in construction pretty much my whole life. My father started Piazza Construction, Inc. in 1973 when I was just 3 yrs old. We have been in the valley ever since.

 

I began my construction career working for my parent’s company pushing a broom then moved my way up the ladder from there. With my parents company I had the opportunity to help build several hundred homes, 6 office buildings, a medical centers, 4 apartment buildings (total of over 400 units), 3 retirement centers and 1 mini storage complex (800+ units). We were also involved with some land development equaling over 100 lots. In 2001 I took over the company as the President. We struggled through some tough years during the outfall of 9/11 and the recession of 2007-2012. During these times we made bold moves to develop a remodeling division which carried us through the tough times. In 2012 we closed Piazza Construction.

 

I have been happily married to my wife Kim (just ask her) since 1995 and we have 2 wonderful children, son Jordan and daughter Lauren. In 2011 my wife and I started John Piazza Jr. Construction and Remodeling, Inc. Where Kim is the bookkeeper and office manager and also a real estate agent.

 

My wife and I believe in giving back to the community. We are members of the Mount Vernon and Burlington Chambers of Commerce, founding members of the Burlington Mid-Day Rotary Club, I am a past president of the club and are also past coaches for the Special Olympics program. We are big supporters of the youth in our community, we donate, and sponsor may events. We are also involved in the Skagit Island County Builders Association (SICBA).

 

Kim is an ambassador for the Burlington Chamber of Commerce as well as a volunteer for the Skagit Valley Hospital Festival of Trees. She is the founding member of the “One Community One Family”, a charity to benefit cancer patients in Skagit County. Lastly, she also serves on the SICBA Board of Directors (Builder Member in 2017-2018, SICBA BOA Treasurer in 2018-2019, and SICBA BOA President in 2019-2020).

MIKE YARROW | PROJECT MANAGER

 

My construction experience started before I was out of High School. I always knew that I wanted to get into the construction business. I served in the Marine Corps from 1979 to 1983. I went to Okinawa Japan, mainland Japan, and South Korea and received an Honorable Discharge as a Sergeant. The Military was a good experience but after four years it was time to get out.

I attended college in Portland and met my bride-to-be. While attending college, I did hot tar roofing, painting, and did some volunteer construction projects.

I have been very happily married to my wife Jean since 1988, we have two adult sons, Kevin & Jason, they are our pride and joy. We, as a family, attend church on a regular basis.

In 1989 I began working for a local Mount Vernon construction company building custom homes from start to finish. Starting as a laborer, I worked my way up to the lead carpenter position running the crews. Since then I have designed and built 3 homes for myself, and in 2006 we built our dream home.

From 1997 to 2007 I owned my own business, Mike Yarrow Fine Homes. With the help of 15 employees, I framed more than 300 homes in Mount Vernon and surrounding areas, as well as several homes from start to finish. I closed my business due to a back injury.

I have 36 years of construction-related experience and have worked with John Piazza Jr Construction & Remodeling since 2008 as a Project Manager. I have completed more than 100, remodels, additions and homes combined. I particularly enjoy kitchen remodels and seeing the transformation into the customer’s dream kitchen.

BRIAN BOURDO-min

BRIAN BOURDO | FIELD SUPERVISOR

 

  I started my building career out as a young teen. I was into skateboarding and started to build ramps and rails. My father gave me the tools and knowledge to start building. By the time I was in high school I was building ½ pipes in friends back yards. In high school woodshop, my direction changed from building skateboard ramps, to building things with more detail. I started to build shelves and cabinets. I built an electric guitar, that did not stay tuned very well.

In 2002 I went to work for a local cabinet company. Building and installing cabinets in King, Snohomish, and Skagit county.  From there I moved into Custom Windows and Doors.  In 2007 I started working with a commercial floor installer. We specialized in all hard surface material: vinyl, ceramic, and hardwood material. I have tiled multiple bathrooms in executive suites in downtown Seattle, as well as many different floor coverings in Medical offices and hospitals around the PNW. Chances are if you have been to a hospital in western Washington you have seen some of my work.  

 

      With the Flooring Company, when we were not installing flooring, we were framing the house. This is where I really cut my teeth as a home builder. The satisfaction I got from building a home was unmatched. I would also do some of the finished work on the homes we framed. My experience from building and installing cabinets really started to come into play.

 

           2014 I had to have surgery on my right knee. I ended up rupturing the bursa sack in my knee and tearing my meniscus. The meniscus was repaired, but I could not go back to flooring full time. After I recovered I was hired by an insurance restoration company. They specialize in fire damage and homes that were struck by trees. This was a very exciting job, We demoed and rebuilt homes, usually bigger and better than before. I grew into a leadership position within the company after a year.  This gave me the opportunity to teach people

      

         In 2018 I started with a company that specialized in weather proof decks. There is a lot of rot repair in that line of work. After heading up some projects I weas ready for a change. John Piazza Jr construction has given me the opportunity to take my knowledge and apply it to a supervisory position. I strive for quality craftsmanship and great customer satisfaction.
