About Shay Barber, Owner
Shay has lived in Washington since he was a young boy and grew up learning carpentry skills from his step-father, who owned his own high-end construction company. His interest in carpentry has followed him into his adult life where he set off on a journey to learn all aspects of building a home from the ground up. He has worked for many different types of large construction companies, building his expertise, knowing that he would one day like to start his own company. 1st Choice has become a successful local business, mostly due to Shay’s high quality of standards, and open, friendly demeanor. He truly wants to build lasting relationships with his clients.

Outside of being a business owner, Shay is a loving husband, an adventurer, and an avid sports fan and player.  He is also committed to the planet, and hopes that the direction of his company will be to move towards sustainable and green building practices. Shay has devoted charitable time to building fully sustainable houses, called earth ships, in Taos, New Mexico. Please feel free to ask if you would like to use sustainable building practices on your project.
