About Us 

Sunny Day Homes is a small, family-owned general contracting firm that has been incorporated since 1997. We came to Boone NC in 1998 and quickly made it our home. Over the last ten years, our company has grown steadily from a one-man repair and remodeling service to a crew of five full-time carpenters and helpers. Our years of experience in the high country NC make it possible for us to bring together the carpenters, subcontractors and suppliers necessary to make your project a success.

Our place in the market is in the middle price range while providing high levels of service, quality and integrity. We intend to remain small enough to give each person and project the personal attention they deserve, yet large enough to handle substantial projects in a timely and efficient fashion.

We maintain both liability and workman's compensation insurance. Our company carries a NC residential contractors license, NC License #46064.

Sunny Day Homes is proud to be a member of the Boone Chamber of Commerce, and the High Country Homebuilders Association.
We also maintain current certifications with the Building Performance Institute for Building Analyst and Envelope Professional.

Our Commitment

Our passion is in building (and rebuilding) homes that are good for the people who live in them as well as this little green and blue planet we live on. We are committed both personally and professionally to working toward greater sustainability . We believe that by approaching each project with care, integrity and an awareness of our participation in the local community, as well as the global ecology, we can support the work of those leading the way towards prosperity and sustainability in every aspect of society.

I have had a life-long interest in renewable energy and environmentally responsible approaches to building and agriculture, which has guided much of the direction of our work at Sunny Day Homes over the years.
