How did you get started in homebuilding?

I have a strong family history in the building industry. I worked with my uncle, eventually started my own framing company, moved on to become a general contractor, and have now been in business for 45 years.

What inspires and influences your work?

Our clients inspire us working every day. We keep a keen eye on trends while respecting classic and timeless elements in every home.

How would you describe your team’s approach to a new project?

Our team is involved from the start—from when we first meet with our clients to talk about their dream for their home and into the design of the home.
From the project manager to estimating to interior design, everyone on the team is involved throughout the process.

What are the most important elements of a successful build team?

Having a dedicated team that loves doing what they do is a key factor of a successful build team. Continual follow-through with clients and team members makes for satisfied homeowners.

What sets your company apart?

We are known as a respected custom homebuilder, and we focus on attention to detail.

How do you bring a client’s vision to life?

First and foremost, we listen to our clients’ wants and needs. We provide continuous communication, adjusting the project throughout, and involving them in every step in the construction process.

What are some of your favorite trends and styles in new construction?

I have a great construction team and subcontractors that work with me to keep me in the know of what the latest trends and styles are in the industry.

What makes you most proud to be a builder?

To meet a new client, build them a fabulous home, and 10 years later they call you again to build them the next dream home. And, of course, when they refer you to friends
and family.

How do you define an Artisan home?

An Artisan home should be all about superior craftsmanship and design.
