About Scott Wells

He soon realized that his interests and talents fit perfectly with the challenges of home improvement. After working several years for other contractors, Scott established his own company—Scott Wells Construction Company. As a general contractor based in Southern Oregon, SWCC specializes in high-quality finish work, but also takes on demanding residential remodels, new construction, and commercial tenant improvement. In his spare time, Scott contributes articles to THISisCarpentry, the Journal of Light Construction, and Fine Homebuilding.
