His father is also the founder of Ross Rigid Frames. The Ross Rigid frame is the marriage of structure and design, where the structure and effort are displayed as the aesthetic theme of the home. Ten years in the trenches with; a shovel, a hammer, or torch brings a wealth of understanding on construction issues from both sides of the table.
