Brace  Bean

Brace Bean

Project Manager

A Northwest Indiana native, my career journey commenced in the oil fields of west Texas. Following the 2015 oil industry crash, I transitioned to remodeling, focusing on renovating apartments in Missouri to prepare them for new tenants. Subsequently, I served as a home inspector for three years. My path led me to Ozarks Remodeling, where I started as an apprentice carpenter, gradually progressing to become a lead carpenter. Though I briefly explored sales, I soon realized my true passion lay in construction. Taking on a supervisory role with Habitat for Humanity, I found myself back in the construction world. However, Aaron's call led me back to Ozarks Remodeling, this time as a project manager. Beyond my professional endeavors, I am a dedicated family man with nine years of marriage and three beautiful daughters. Actively participating in my church's pre-school ministry, I find joy in both my family and community involvement.
