About FROM THE GROUND UP LLC

    FGU WAS ESTABLISHED IN 2014 WHEN OWNERR Andy Mayhew DECIDED TO START THE CONSTRUCTION COMPANY AFTER WORKING IN THE CORPORATE WORLD SINCE GRADUATING COLLEGE. ANDY GRADUATED FROM LYNCHBURG COLLEGE (OR UNIVERSITY WHICH THEY REFER TO NOW). WHILE WORKING IN CORPORATE WORLD, ANDY WAS ABLE TO COMPLETE HIS MASTERS DEGREE IN BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION. WHILE ATTENDING LBC, ANDY MET HIS WIFE SARAH AND WAS FINALLY ABLE TO CONVINCE SARAH TO CALL FOREST HOME. ANDY AND SARAH HAVE 2 BEAUTIFUL DAUGHTERS; JILLIAN (10) AND HADLEY (7). ANDY AND HIS "GIRLS" ENJOY GOING TO VT FOOTBALL GAMES, HANGING OUT WITH FRIENDS AND JUST ANYTHING TO DO WITH BEING OUTSIDE.

     ANDY'S BACKGROUND IN THE CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY STARTED WITH HIS DAD DOUG. DOUG IS A RETIRED BEDFORD COUNTY POLICE OFFICER WHO HAS ALWAYS WORKED IN CONSTRUCTION SINCE GRADUATED HIGH SCHOOL. DOUG BEING 68 YEARS OLD, STILL IS OUT ON JOB SITES EVERYDAY AND MOST OF TIME WILL OUTWORK ANYBODY ONSITE. WITH HIS 45 YEAR PLUS OF CONSTRUCTION EXPERTISE, THERE ARE NOT MANY THINGS THAT HE HASN'T SEEN OR DONE. DOUG HAS TAUGHT ANDY PRETTY MUCH EVERYTHING HE KNOWS ABOUT THE TRADE. ANDY HAS TAKEN ON A DIFFERENT APPROACH AND ADAPTED WITH THE ALL THE NEW IDEAS AND TRENDS TO A-COMPANY THE OLD-SCHOOL WAY OF THINKING BY DOUG. 

    FGU CURRENTLY EMPLOYEES (2) ADDITIONAL FULL TIME EMPLOYEES. BROTHERS TO BE EXACT. EBEN GOFF (Aka Rufus) AND HIS YOUNGER BROTHER DAVID UNDERWOOD (ELVIS). NOT SURE WHERE THE NICKNAMES CAME FROM, BUT ONCE YOU MEET THEM THE REAL NAMES NO LONGER EXIST. RUFUS IS A LICENSED TATOO ARTIST AND LOVES TO PUT THAT SKILL TO WORK WHEN NOT DOING CONSTRUCTION. ELVIS HIS YOUNGER BROTHER HAS ALWAYS WORKED IN THE CONSTRUCTION FIELD AND BRINGS A LOT OF ENGERY AND PASSION EVERYDAY. BOTH BROTHERS ARE VITAL ASPECTS TO FGU.  

Our Process

AFTER OUR FIRST INTIAL CONVERSATION, HERE ARE OUR BASIC STEPS IN PROCEEDING TO WORK WITH OUR

CUSTOMERS. WE ALWAYS DO ONSITE EVAULATIONS. WE HAVE  HAD CUSTOMERS WHO WOULD LIKE TO  KNOW AN IDEA OF WHAT THEIR PROJECT WILL COST BEFORE EVER SEEING JOBSITE, BUT WE PREFER NOT TO GIVE ANY PRICING WITHOUT SEEING THE JOB. 1 REASON BEING THE COST COULD BE LOWER BASED ON FINDINGS ALONE (OR HIGHER) :) 2. HONESTLY THIS PROTECTS YOU AND US. 3. THERE ARE SO MANY FACTORS THAT COME IN TO PLAY WHEN BIDDING OR ACTUAL CONSTRUCTION. 4. THIS GIVES US A CHANCE TO MEET YOU IN PERSON AND ALLOWS US THE CHANCE TO SHOW YOU HOW KNOWLEDGABLE WE ARE IN MANY PHASES OF CONSTRUCTION. WE MAY BE ABLE TO OFFER SOLUTONS TO SAVE YOU A LOT OF $.
