When Matt was a teenager he knew he would be a builder, and in junior high he signed up for the vocational building trades program. He worked on two houses in the program and helped a friend build his new home after graduation. Then Matt headed off to the Nav, where he worked for three of his four years in a carpentry shop on board ship. After completing his four-year tour, he began working in construction, first in South Carolina and then back in his native state of Vermont, where he partnered with the friend he worked with before his Navy tour.
Prior to joining Sisler Builders, Matt was employed with Ben & Jerry’s in Waterbury, Vt., for 13 years. During that time he did carpentry, completed a plumbing apprenticeship, and acquired both his journeyman and masters licenses. He also taught classes for a plumber apprenticeship program.
With his experience in both plumbing and home building, Matt brings a valuable combination of skills to our team. He is also a well-versed gardener. Read about his gardening talents in our blog.
