Rising Stars: Meet Kristopher Ford

Today we’d like to introduce you to Kristopher Ford.  

Hi Kristopher, we’re thrilled to have a chance to learn your story today. So, before we get into specifics, maybe you can briefly walk us through how you got to where you are today?
I started off as a rapper known as K-Chill and also the first producer of the group Bone Thugs N Harmony. As a rapper, I was pretty successful selling over 250k CDs in the 90s and having my music in regular rotation on the airwaves. It was while on a 50-city tour with bone and in Houston Texas that I had an epiphany and knew I had to come home and build my brand and business as I had always dibbled and dabbled in construction and remodeling with my family. 

Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way? Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
It was super slow at first. Bills needed to be paid but I knew if I got a job, I’d never have the time to dedicate to my own business so I stayed the course. Even a few jobs early on went way south because looking back I was not charging enough so I prayed on it and heard three words… Know your worth. The next day I did an estimate and typically would have charged 4k for the job but I said 8k and the customer cut the check. From that day forth I was told how amazing my work was…lol. In all actuality the work was the same, the budget was right and allowed me to be more creative. 

As you know, we’re big fans of you and your work. For our readers who might not be as familiar what can you tell them about what you do?
I have kind of created my own lane. People call me when other Contractors say they can’t. Can’t isn’t in my vocabulary I feel if we can dream it up, I can build it. I would say that I’m known for my creativity and for my custom builds like my fireplaces and tables. My designs are definitely one of a kind. One thing for sure is if I do your kitchen or bathroom or commercial build-out it won’t be cookie-cutter or look like your neighbors. 

How can people work with you, collaborate with you, or support you?
