Billy Hartnett

Billy has shown a love of building and creating things since he was as young as 12 years old. He has been a business owner since 18 which has given him the opportunity to offer a multi-faceted approach to the construction industry he loves.

Building and design have been his life-long passion and to this day he is present on every job site overseeing development, mentoring carpenters, collaborating with clientele, and still getting his hands dirty.  Billy enjoys creative challenges and takes pride in his ability to provide clients exactly what they dream of with his team of dedicated subcontractors.  While not planning, building, or creating he spends his time on and below the water boating and scuba diving with his pups. Billy is also an excellent cook and enjoys “family dinner” on Sundays where he surrounds himself with friends and loved ones.
