Rebus is an alliance of craftspeople and artisans. Most Members are one or two person shops. Rebus was designed by Kel Heyl : "As I worked my way around the industry I saw a sad arc in the life of many startup remodeling companies. They would struggle to get established, land a few larger projects and ramp up the overhead. Work would dry up and the companies would be crushed by the overhead burden."
"I wondered if a more supple approach could be found to deal with the inevitable ebb and flow of the industry."
"When an Alliance Member develops a lead, that Member acts as project manager. A unique team is assembled for each project. Team Members are comfortable generating their own work. They have established client bases of varying scales. They're looking to take on larger more profitable projects. The team may stay together for additional work or may be disbanded if there are no larger projects in the offing."
"Risks and rewards are shared equally. Each Member participates in formulating the proposal, the design and the execution."
Some of our leads come from past clients.
