Case Studies Residential

Elias Moussa – Michael & Son Services

By 7:30 a.m. most of the 30 students living in the six-story Wyeth Tower are up and preparing for the day’s first class. After grabbing a coffee and a quick bite, they file into the school’s lone building and head to their respective classrooms. Only, the students attending this Richmond, Virginia, institute aren’t coming for […]

Kal and Kam Takhar – Crowne Development Inc.

They continue to beat the odds that have consumed so many small and medium-sized companies in California’s very competitive homebuilding industry, since the last downturn. The way things are going for Crowne Development Inc., brothers Kal and Kam Takhar could be well on their way to having yet another success story from which to leverage […]

Bryan Antoncic – UA Builders Group

He was there when the Today Show studio needed a makeover. He regularly rubbed elbows with the cast of Saturday Night Live. When NBC News anchor Brian Williams implored someone—anyone—to stop the rogue fire alarm interrupting a now-infamous 2012 broadcast, it was he who finally shut it off. (You can find the video on YouTube.) […]

Highridge Costa

It’s a situation so many desirable locales face, perhaps none more so than Hawaii, where the cost of living soars higher than what much of its service economy’s workforce can bear. Or what many retirees can afford just to live out their golden years in a community they may have helped build. The solution isn’t […]

Jay Byce – ResiBuilt

So you think you’ve found your dream home. It looks great from the outside and, based on the slideshow online, it has everything you’re looking for. If you’re going with convention, the next step would be to schedule an appointment with a real estate agent. But this is a ResiBuilt house—so instead you download an […]

Signature Homes

The good news just keeps on coming, the aptly named Chris Carpenter muses from the Nashville satellite of Alabama-based Signature Homes. For while the capital of Tennessee still may go by the moniker of Music City, far more than records are being made in this thriving southern metropolis with a climate largely spared extremes and […]

Custom Remodelers

Craig Carpenter says he is not the jack-of-all-trades, he’s the master of one—and that suits him just fine. On the cusp of celebrating a 30-year anniversary in the home remodeling business, Carpenter remembers starting up Custom Remodelers in Lino Lakes with brothers Kevin and Chad and older sister Corinne. Back in the early days, growing […]

Self Serve Lumber & Home Center

There aren’t many such enterprises still in existence, not when the competition is the big-box store. But here in and around central Michigan, the Self Serve Lumber & Home Center chain isn’t just surviving, it’s thriving—seemingly unfazed by the ubiquitous Home Depots and Walmarts. Then again, it preceded the gargantuan retailers by decades. It also […]

Porter Contracting

Eli Porter, owner of the Florida-based company Porter Contracting, has decades of experience to draw from to help him hold tight to his standards in the booming Florida real estate market. Still, his youth spent playing sports sticks with him. The importance of being a team player, for instance, has left a lasting impression and […]

PF Custom Countertops

When a company’s stock in trade is designing, supplying and installing countertops and assorted fixtures, it helps to know more than just materials and methods. Staying ahead, or at least keeping pace with consumer trends, is just as important in this very competitive end of the residential and commercial construction industry. That has summed up […]
