Bianca has a vision.
“In a couple of years, I want to buy my first property,” she told us on a sunny afternoon while taking a break on her current job site with Evryman Wood. She’ll rehab the space, make it beautiful, and then sell it or rent it out. And then she’ll buy another and another. Eventually she wants to own multiple properties. We called it being a “real estate mogul,” to which she chuckled.
If you know Revolution Workshop, you know we’re not an organization that sits on the sidelines. When we see racist systems and policies oppressing our trainees, our graduates, and the communities we work alongside, we step up.
Jeff Lycett is the owner and lead carpenter behind Evryman Wood, a custom carpentry and trim business taking on projects of all sizes throughout the Chicago area. Jeff has been in the field for over 25 years—from project managing high-end construction in New York City to custom carpentry projects in Colorado and Chicago. But simply dipping into his work in building beautiful handrails, kitchens, and built-ins doesn’t paint the true picture of Jeff. It’s his philosophy and business model—and his deep commitment to community—that truly speak to his mission.
