Details CEO Cory Laws has lived in Herndon since 1988, after moving to the area in 1978. After a successful Information Technology career, Cory decided to turn a lifelong passion into his livelihood. Cory has been involved in carpentry, woodworking, and related skills since childhood. Starting with summers spent at the Boys’ Club, he has had a love of craftsmanship from a young age. From early projects involving wood, metal, plastics, and laminates, he moved to repairs, custom fencing and decks, flooring, and full build-outs. Recent projects have included new and remodeled baths, gourmet kitchens, custom basements and in-law suites, home theaters, additions, and renovations of everything from Victorian porches to the entire house.
Cory also enjoys a number of other activities. He excelled at classical piano, clarinet and alto sax, and was a founding member of two bands. Outdoor activities include cycling, golf, tennis, swimming and such adrenaline creating activities as skiing and car racing. He’s even jumped from a perfectly good airplane. His love of cars led to the formation of the Austin Healey Sports and Touring Club, still viable after more than 35 years. A member of the BMW Car Club of America since 1979, Cory has held various positions including newsletter editor and president, and won the national newsletter competition in the early 1980s. As an avid cook, he knows his way around a kitchen, and is happy to show off his talents. Remodeling kitchens gives him particular satisfaction, as he’s bought two houses primarily for their kitchens.
