Why our company formed:
We had been renting since moving out of home at eighteen and having our own home seemed like an unachievable goal due to its expense and how much we were earning. We had signed another 6-month lease on the property we were renting and the rent had gone up again. After calculating how much we had paid to our landlords, we reached a turning point. Dalewood Constructions began as a means to provide us (and others like us), with what we needed to get ahead in life – our first home.
