C.R. Bennett Construction Co.

Licensed Contractor, Maryland Home Improvement Contractor

In 1972 I entered into a formal apprenticeship, and worked under Floyd Ulmer, a fourth generation Pennsylvania Carpenter born in 1899. Among his peers, Floyd was considered a Carpenter’s Carpenter. Working under him, I enjoyed many projects, including Paca House, Victualing Warehouse, the Barracks, The Market Place, The Tom Thumb Railroad, London Towne Publik House and more.
Having become a journeyman, I set out in 1978 and did the restoration on Slicer Shiplap House, Gassaway-Feldmeyer House, Retilick Brewer House, Jonas Greene House and others. Old houses being a constant source of repairs and maintenance, I’ve enjoyed working on Chase LLoyd House, Hammond Harwood House, John Hopkins House among others. As my interests turned to structures and structural failure, providence led me to many periods of work at Blair House in Washington. there my interests turned again to finish work, where we had the privilege of building the handicap access in the East Wing of the White House.
I am quite blessed in the work that has been given me and currently enjoy the privilege of working on many very unique architectural features at the U.S. Naval Academy.
If there is any one piece of advice I could pass on to those seeking a career, I would encourage them to find what they can be passionate about, and strive to be the best they can be. Everything else will fall in place.
