David Needham, General Contractor
A Northwest native, David has a strong history in all aspects of construction, from skilled carpenter to superintendent to independent builder. Prior to starting his business in residential construction on Orcas Island, he spent several years in commercial construction as a project engineer on such projects as the Seattle Four Seasons Olympic and Tacoma Sheraton Hotels. In 1984 David moved with his family to Orcas Island to pursue his dream of building beautiful homes in one of the world’s most beautiful places. Twenty-five years later he has achieved an impressive portfolio, with several of his projects featured in print. Today he enjoys the distinct privilege and pleasure of working with his son Chris who shares his aptitude and enthusiasm for building.
