new leaf. You are determined to find time in your busy schedule to tackle that home renovation project you have been putting off for far too long. Perhaps you have grown weary of waiting for


A


your dreams to materialize and have thus decided to make the most of these cold, gray days of winter to plan and design the new home you’ve always wanted. Okay. That’s enough. Who are you kidding? You know surplus time isn’t going to somehow magically appear in your hectic life. It’s time to join the rest of us back here in the real world, don’t you think?


Admit it. The ball will drop on another year and


you won’t be any further along than you are now. Here’s an idea: Why not let skilled, dependable professionals take care of your project for you? Yep, it’s time to call in the reinforcements. It’s time to give the folks at Bagby Construction a ring. Bagby Construction is headquartered at Grand Lake, and owners Ryan and Brecka Bagby make their home on the lake near the Cleora community. They specialize in both commercial and residential construction, including new construction and remodels.


Bagby Construction’s Ryan Bagby discusses with homeowner Julie McLaughlin plans for her new custom home.


Ryan’s work ethic has translated well into other areas of his life. Described by his wife as a “workaholic,” Ryan managed to pay his way through college.


Bagby Construction has been building homes for eight years. However, Ryan cut his teeth in the construction industry several years prior.


Clients of Bagby Construction know their project is in good hands and benefit from key services such as planning, design and drawing, as well as construction management. So in demand are Bagby’s services that the company


hasn’t advertised. Word of mouth from satisfied customers has kept the Bagby Construction moving right on along from project to project. Ryan is an Edmond native, a former high school wrestling standout who is still a high-energy individual twenty years removed from his days on the mats. Ryan’s appreciation for hard work was no accident. It was impressed upon him at an early age. He recalls spend- ing summers on his great-grandfather Gus Solomon’s farm in east Texas, learning to work with his hands. Little did he know then that he was learning a trade from his great- grandfather who, not coincidentally, was also a respected builder.

“My first building experience was with Bud Bartley, a homebuilder in Edmond,” Ryan said. “I learned from Bud the importance of quality over quantity.” Ryan started out sweeping floors for Bartley in 1995. He quickly worked his way up to superintendent. The year 2000 marked Ryans’s first commercial


endeavor. He was a project manager with Sooner Builders and was in charge of building a new post office in Okla- homa City. Ryan has come a long way since ‘95. He is currently managing three commercial projects, five custom homes and a handful of remodels. Great-grandad would be proud. You may recognize some of Bagby Construction’s more visible handiwork. The Pryor Animal Shelter has a sharp, new headquarters building north of Pryor along Highway 69, and work on a new carwash is in underway in Cleora.
