Everybody in the town knows Venko K.. He is one of the most popular carpenters in the region. For 15 years he worked in the wood factory in town but 3 years ago, he decided to start his own business.

His workshop is on the first floor of the house he builds for 6 years. Venko K. makes any kind of woodwork – furniture, doors, windows, frames. Smolian is close to one of the most popular winter resorts in Bulgaria and therefore lots of hotels and houses are being built nearby. So Venko has many orders for these buildings.

He works alone and nobody helps him but although the work is hard he is not complaining. All the money he earns he puts into the house he builds. There is still to much work until the house will be finished but his dream is to live there with his family.
