Welcome to Poplin Construction,
Inc.'s website. To begin, I would like to tell you a little about
the company and myself. I am Tommy Poplin and I retired from
the Army in 1989 as a Chief Warrant Officer 3. My wife Linda
(who is the Secretary of the Corporation) and I enjoyed traveling
the world, but wanted to settle down to allow our sons to graduate
from the same High School they started. So, we decided that 20
years in the military was long enough and retired in Ocean Shores
in order to be close to family. I began working for another contractor
in this area and in 1992 we decided to start a contracting business
for ourselves. Approximately three years later, we incorporated
the business to add our three sons and brother-in-law (retired
1999) into the business. We have been a Corporation since September
of 1995. We build an average of 5 to 7 custom homes a year, these
homes have ranged from, a one bedroom 800 sq. ft. home to a 6,000
sq. ft. home complete with an elevator and stone fireplace.
My oldest son, James, is Vice-President
of the Corporation and lead carpenter. James has knowledge and
the ability to build your home from the foundation thru the finish
work. He is an excellent carpenter and I am very proud of him.
He is married and has three wonderful sons. His wife Jacqueline
is the Office Manager and the Treasurer for the Corporation.
My next to the oldest son, Robert
is also a Vice President and lead carpenter. Rob, also, has built
homes from the foundation thru the finish work and is a finish
carpenter, which makes me very proud. He also has three wonderful
children, two sons and the only "Granddaughter".
My youngest son, Russell is also
a Vice President and a lead carpenter. Rusty graduated from High
School in 1999 and has been working with the company ever since.
He has learned much from his brothers and I am equally proud
of him, as he has learned the trade thru all of his experiences.
The one thing that we all have
in common is our Name and we are all fully aware that our name
goes on all we do. We want to ensure that everything we build
is done in a manner that allows any one of us to proudly say
the Poplin's built that home.
Please feel free to browse our
site and contact me either by telephone or email and I will certainly
try to answer any specific questions you may have. We are looking
forward to helping you in anyway we can through the building
process here in Ocean Shores.
