Bill Beckwith, carpenter on HGTV's Curb Appeal, started working with his hands at an early age. Born on a 60-acre vegetable farm in midcoast Maine, Bill was taught by his father to grow food, but Bill found himself drawn to working on the old structures on the property and building things in the farm's workshop. Bill later attended the University of Montana, where he studied English and martial arts. During summer breaks he worked in the mountains of Wyoming restoring the cabins of a historic fly-fishing ranch.
Later, Bill moved to Northern California, became a licensed contractor and now works on all phases of construction — from foundation to finish work. His company, BB Design Build, enables him to enjoy a diversity of projects, from weaving retaining walls into beautiful decks to spending time in his woodshop crafting a cabinet to finish out a project.
