Vice President of Construction
Dean is the longest standing employee at Holmes Builders. He has been building alongside Terry since before Holmes Builders' inception. It is really hard to imagine Holmes Builders without Dean.
Dean was born and raised in Wisconsin, but he got to Texas as soon as could. Like Terry, he followed the building boom to Dallas and the two met up on a construction site in 1980. They have been working together ever since. Dean's field experience prior to Holmes Builders paved the way for his role as Vice President of Construction. Over the years he has done everything from framing to designing trim work to helping clients select their paint color to managing subcontractors of all types.
Today, Dean not only manages the field personnel but he also builds homes as well. You may find him on a roof checking flashings, explaining details to subcontractors, or welding a wrought iron detail. An easygoing relational guy, Dean genuinely cares for each of his clients. By the end of construction, his clients are more like extended family.
When Dean isn't working at Holmes Builders, he is at home with his family or on a boat. Dean loves his family like none other. He and his wife, Melanie, are proud parents to four kids and grandparents to eight grandchildren. Dean loves fishing, hunting, working in his home shop, and sports.
