At Brighton Builders we strive to lay a foundation of trust with you, the client. By listening to your needs we craft the home of your dreams.
I was only three when I began in construction, or should I say “deconstruction”. One day, I found a screwdriver and somehow managed to take apart my entire high chair.
It wasn’t long after that my parents realized I liked to figure out how things work. My dad started letting me help him do physical jobs at work or at home on our farm. I’m thankful for this time growing up in a rural area of Reidsville, Georgia. I believe it was this experience of living in a small town and learning from my father that truly shaped my destiny as a custom builder. Whether we were building a barn, fixing a piece of farm equipment or doctoring the animals, I had a curiosity. And my dad was always there to answer my questions.
Over time I began building and repairing things on my own with a strong desire to be creative. By my late teens, my passion for building and renovating had kicked into high gear and I was eager to try my hand at new and challenging building projects.
One hot day when I was working my summer job framing the roof of a home, it came to me. I needed to work smarter and harder mentally instead of physically. I went on to pursue and graduate college at the University of Georgia where I also met my partner in life, my wife Brittany.
After college I worked in construction management gaining knowledge of the building industry. From that experience, I felt I would one day start my own company. And in 2010 that dream came true with the opening of Brighton Builders, LLC.
I’m so thankful for our wonderful clients who have given me the opportunity to pursue my passion – that of taking something from paper to the a fully realized structure. In addition to the many beautiful custom homes we’ve built, we’ve also built great relationships with our clients, too. It’s truly amazing what friendships have come out of building homes for our great clients.
After all, constructing a new house is a fun challenge as well as rewarding to the team of people that put it together. It gives all of us at Brighton Builders great pleasure to see smiles on the faces of those we build and renovate homes for.
Brighton Builders always wants to make sure our clients are pleased with the experience of building and renovating and that the finished product is just how they envision it will be.
I personally look forward to the opportunity to work with you in “building beyond expectations” of your custom home or renovation.
