Digs began when co-founder Ryan Fink, an accomplished AI expert, built his own family home. In collaboration with Ty Frackiewicz, a former builder and technology leader, they discovered the construction industry hadn’t evolved past the same pen-and-paper methods from when Ty was a builder 15 years ago – resulting in wasted time and money.
