Our Mission

Our clients are sophisticated homeowners who bring us big dreams and big plans. Their new homes are often dreams years in the making and it is our mission to bring those dreams to life.

Our job is to bring the architect's vision to fruition exactly as they conceived it. We never build the same thing twice. Each project involves creative engineering, alternative materials and innovative techniques. We are constantly learning and refining.

We strive to make Holmes Hole Builders a great place to work. The feeling on our jobsites is one of caring, support and friendliness. The guys all appreciate the strength of their teammates and do whatever they can to enhance each other's skills.

Founded in 2001 by Gary Maynard and his wife Kristina Kinsman, Holmes Hole Builders evolved from the couple's lifelong love of the sea and the logical progression of Gary's unusual career, first as a commercial sailor on tall ships, then as a wooden boat and ship builder, and finally as an elite custom home builder.

"Sailing and shipbuilding have informed everything I do as a builder, manager and craftsman," says Gary. "Wooden sailing ships have to withstand the enormous stresses imposed by the vagaries of wind and weather, yet they do so with grace, beauty and longevity. These are the characteristics we build into our homes."

"What I learned from the better captains and mates I sailed under is that true leadership is not autocratic, but involves surrounding yourself with the best people and nurturing their individual skill sets so that everyone feels a sense of pride and accomplishment in being part of something larger than themselves."
