Grace and Klein

IMG_4578 Can we build it? Yes we can!!! I am 11 years old and my brother is 9. Construction is all we know. Sometimes we check on the job sites with our mom and dad on Saturdays. We are learning all the tool names and how to be safe on the jobsite. Our full time job is to keep all of the guys “in line.” I never knew a company would make my family so big. We have like 22 uncles, 15 aunts and a bunch of cousins. Everyone that works with us is family. Thank you for considering Grace Klein Construction, Inc. We hope you will choose us as your lifetime construction company. We want to be serving your needs in 20 years.
