Meet Earl

The McBride team is proud to introduce to you to the newest addition to our company. We’re sure you will find him a strong symbol of all the hard work we accomplish here at McBride Remodeling.

You may have seen him hanging around the office for a few weeks and wondered… who is this guy? Well, we can tell you he is as strong as steel and has the strength of 10 men. His stature’s been the same ever since he was brought into this world. He is a tough one who many say was forged from fire. 

His nickname is “Tube-Dude” but his real name is Earl!  

We had to persuade him to come up to Northern Michigan where he could enjoy life a bit more. He is an old soul, after all, and deserves some of the comforts we offer here. He has been called many things through his extensive work in the trades, and stories of his exploits and endeavours are part of the folklore told around campfires. There have been songs written about him and his work. His time in the south of Florida has left him a reputation that spans many years of stories, jokes, and a work ethic known only as “Earl.” 

Because of his unknown background, but obvious vast experience, many have bragged that he actually had a hand at solving some of the most difficult construction projects known to man, including:  

  • The Colossus of Rhodes
  • Great Pyramid of Giza
  • Hanging Gardens of Babylon
  • The Eiffel Tower

Mysteriously, there are drawings near the Hanging Gardens of Babylon and the pyramids of a tube-like man who carries a HUGE hammer and spike. No one can verify Earl’s age, so don’t ever ask him, and he keeps pretty mum about his travels.

While it may be very hard to determine the validity of his legendary feats, this we know to be true from a trusted source: Earl brings good luck! He worked tirelessly in the blazing sun with his fellow laborers down south, and he was always on site for inspiration and as a symbol of work well done.  At day’s end, fellow workers honored his presence with a simple pat on his hard hat just for a job well done, and it always brought them good luck and safe results. So next time you come into our offices, remember that a simple pat on Earl’s hard hat—or maybe just a little wave of recognition as you walk by—can’t hurt.

The bottom line is that Earl represents what we all do every day: we work safe, hard, and proudly carry a BIG hammer. We’re very glad he is in our corner and will keep a watchful eye on all of us.
