Bio

Ryan Smith is a carpenter specializing in residential construction and roof framing. Upon graduating high school, Ryan was immediately passionate about roof cutting, which led to many late nights listening to lead carpenters explain how the job was done. Ryan gained experience in many areas of construction including siding, roofing, drywall hanging, and trimming houses. Still, his first love was always framing. Over time, Ryan developed his own approach to the craft, which involves cutting roof rafters before a house has been built. Today, he is the sole roof cutter at 7 Construction Inc., a custom framing company based in Buffalo, New York. He believes carpenters’ integrity matters more than their skill, as this enables them to bring a level of mastery–and respect–to the work at hand.

“Always do the right thing, even if no one else will ever see it.”
