Giffin & Crane Executive Vice President Derek Shue recently scrolled through his social media series of favorite company photos, images taken by himself and several job site supervisors throughout 2020. He had amassed 300 shots. Turns out, jobsite supervisors can be pretty handy with a camera. It’s no wonder, though. Homebuilders — especially those who focus on high-end custom projects — are a creative bunch. Much more often than not, quality craftsmanship walks hand in hand with a strong eye for detail. And it shows. Here are a few handfuls of images that Shue considers top-notch among that original 300.
