Director of Construction

Acting as Richard’s right hand for nearly 20 years, Chris, is an integral part of delivering dream homes to be enjoyed for generations. Chris' forte comes in his ability to troubleshoot on the homes. Because no two homes are alike in custom construction, items often come up in the field that need quick but thoughtful solutions. His creative solutions not only fix the issue, but often leave the project in better standing than the original design provided.
