A Real Family Name


Have you ever wondered how B-Dirt got its name?

B-Dirt Construction, LLC, got its name from one of the owner's sons. Joe Ranweiler's son, Nicholas, was at a job site with his dad when he was about 18 months old. He saw the big piles of dirt that are common at the beginning of a project after the basement is dug. He told his dad to look at the "B" dirt. He couldn't manage the word "big" came out as "B dirt." So B-Dirt got its name from Nicholas. Nicholas is now a teenager, and he works with us in the summer. It must be fun to work for a company you named yourself! B-Dirt is a real family name...from our family to yours.
