GUIDE STATEMENT

We know how frustrating it is to become a certified Interior Decorator/Contractor! There are many schools to choose from: on location and online. It is frustrating to rent an apartment in a faraway city with the added expense of travel, utilities, etc. The tuition and books expenses will cause a student to take out school loans to pay for all these expenses.

Boyd Wichman has written our interior Decorator/ Contractor method. He has been in the flooring/remodeling business since 1972 when he started selling carpets for a store in Topeka, Kansas, when he was 21. Then Boyd went on the road for a carpet manufacturer selling to dealers in Kansas, Missouri, Kentucky, and Illinois. While still in the flooring business, he studied and passed the test to receive his Real Estate license for Kansas and Missouri. Boyd started a flooring business in 1975 at Manhattan, Kansas, when Mr. Wichman returned to college to get his BA in Business/ Accounting. After completing his degree in Business in 1979, he moved his flooring business and real estate license to Kansas City. Margaret, Boyd’s wife, started being involved in the industry in 1986. Boyd and Margaret have sold flooring, remodeling, and real estate for 50 years.
