Owner & Operator

Stephen’s passion for building began at age sixteen while working for a master carpenter in Rhode Island and continued through college. Spending his summers working on Nantucket, Stephen was drawn to the quality craftsmanship and fresh architectural details incorporated into the homes he helped build. After graduating from Rhode Island College with degrees in Communications and Business, Stephen made the decision to move to Nantucket to start his construction business. Now closing in on his 50th home built, he's very pleased with his decision to make Nantucket his home.

"We strive to build homes of exceptional value. My goal is not to be the biggest, just the best at what we do."
