Steph spent 6 years (2016-2022) helping educate homeowners on how to do their own home repairs and weatherization, working for the Home Repair Resource Center in Cleveland Heights. She learned from a variety of handy people, including licensed tradesmen, landlords, installers, and inspectors. In 2011, Steph completed a Pre-apprenticeship Carpentry Program through the Ohio Carpenter’s JATC in Columbus, OH. Since then she’s worked on several vegetable farms, and managed two Tool Libraries (1 in Columbus, 1 in Cleveland Heights). She builds all the farm buildings at Red Beet Row, and gains her most creative experiences there. She has been remodeling and repairing homes for friends and family since 2020, and became self-employed working for strangers beginning in 2022.

Note about farm: Steph designs, builds, wires, and plumbs all the agricultural structures on the farm at Red Beet Row – greenhouse, farm office, root cellar, barn, mobile animal structures, outdoor kitchen, etc. Her farm buildings utilize natural techniques, which minimize the use of store-bought products and building supplies made by the chemical industry that are toxic and/or high-energy in their manufacturing and distribution. Her building supplies at home include reclaimed insulation foam, waste skids and pallets, locally-sawn lumber from the sawmill, locally-sourced straw and sand, and lots of clay sourced straight from the ground.
