Hi, I am Josh Tompkins, the builder for Birchwood Custom Homes. It may sound cliché, but I have loved building since I was a boy and have had a hammer in my hand since I could hold one. My parents had to finally give me my own pieces of lumber to drive nails into so that I would leave their furniture and walls alone. If I couldn’t find something new to build on my own, I was taking apart other things to figure out how they worked just to put them back together again. To say I love building and creating something from the ground up would be a huge understatement.
As I got older, I figured it was just a pipe dream to actually become a builder. Who really gets to become what they dreamed of as a child? I went to college, earned a degree, and realized very quickly that I was not meant to be in an office all day.
My passion in life is to get my hands dirty. To create beauty from nothing. I am not a builder who wants to sit on the sidelines simply overseeing the work. I am a part of every detail all along the way working to make sure it is done right and in a manner that I can truly be proud of.
After spending many years doing what I loved and gaining invaluable experience working for a large well-known homebuilding company, I decided I wanted to create a legacy for my own family. My goal is to not only create a beautiful home for our clients but to make them feel comfortable from a blank slate all the way until we reach the end result. Birchwood is family, and we want to make you feel a part of it.
