In 1993, at the age of 29 Uri set out on what may be an impossible task for some; he built a house from the ground up. It took ingenuity, determination, and leadership to take a simple plot of land and create a home. Surrounded by the outcome of his labor, he found his calling. His eldest recalls the project,

“I remember touching the pile of wet cement when he started the foundation, it’s remarkable to think at that age (5) that a person could do so much with their hands but there it was; roof reaching for the sky-a house.”

Since then he spent many years learning, honing, and practicing his craft through this new career. If you live in New Jersey and Pennsylvania, chances are you’ve seen his work. In 2005 he was finally able to build something new from the ground up again: Uri Construction.
