JELD-WEN is shining the spotlight on builders in 2019. Our second featured builder is Scott Moran, owner of Hallmark Homes, which builds custom homes in Bismarck, North Dakota. In this Q&A, Scott discusses the fulfillment he receives from building and giving back and why he chooses JELD-WEN products for his custom homes and customers. Why did you decide to become a builder?
