Daniel Bird

Dan has been in the construction industry for over 25 years, cutting his teeth in the trades as a carpenter, painter, plumber, and all-around handyman. After years of traveling and fixing homes across the US from Alaska to Maine, Dan settled in Nashville in 2004. He saw the need for honest construction practices and wanted to build a haven for a talented workforce. With these goals in mind, Dan has created a better business model for his employees to have a career, not just a job, and he believes his customers’ needs and homes are sacred. Since founding The Dan Company LLC and receiving his General Contracting license, Dan has helped many clients achieve their home renovation dreams. When he’s not out in the field, Dan enjoys riding motorcycles, playing guitar, and spending time with his wife, Karen, their two sons, and their dogs, Stogie, and Auster.
