Beginning with jobsite cleanup and later advancing to interior trim carpentry, Josh was able to learn the home building trade as he gained additional responsibilities. While studying Construction Management at The Ohio State University Wooster campus, Josh continued to work within Dungan homes during summer breaks. As he continues to hone his skills as a home builder, Josh is committed to continuing a proud family tradition of providing quality housing for new homeowners.
