Bakersfield - Our History
How it all began…
In 1983 Everett earned his first California State Contractors License and in June of 1987 the Gray’s incorporated and the state gave him his existing license #548785.
In June 1987 Everett and Patty Gray started their business as Everett Gray and Sons Inc. and focused their attention on residential remodeling and new home construction in the Kern County area. Since purchasing the DreamMaker franchise in 2003, they manage a team of experts that specialize in kitchen and bath remodeling. Their systematic approach prescribed by DreamMaker’s parent company out of Waco, Texas, allows them to maximize efficiency in all departments and to ensure superior customer service. Everett Gray, a licensed general contractor, started his career in 1972 with the Carpenter’s Local Union of Norfolk, Virginia. Four years later, Everett earned his Journeyman Carpenter Certificate from the United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners of America, Local Union 331 of Norfolk, Virginia. Everett is well-versed in all aspects of construction from foundations to roofing as a result of both his formal training and extensive field experience.
In 1978 Everett and Patty (a native of Kern County), moved back to California where Everett continued to work in the trades with his tool belt. In June 1987 he earned his General Contractor’s license by the State of California (#548785). His wife, Patty, supported his business as the office manager while raising their three sons. In April 2003, the Gray’s accepted an offer to own and operate a local franchise company from DreamMaker Bath & Kitchen by Worldwide, of Waco, Texas.
Everett, as the President of the corporation offers his years of expertise working with clients through the sales and design process. Patty, as Chief Stewarding Officer, utilizes her organizational and people skills by managing the company’s operations and overseeing a unique company culture that benefits their DreamMaker clients, DreamMaker associates, and their trade partners. Everett and Patty are supported by and attribute their success to an outstanding and innovative team that understands the importance of making their client’s dreams come true.
