Brian started his construction career in Mammoth Lakes, California as a laborer and quickly worked his way up to managing crews on multiple job sites. A move to San Diego, California gave him the opportunity to work with a master carpenter, building large custom homes. During these years Brian acquired his love for custom home building, attention to detail and craftsmanship. Wanting to branch out on his own he became a General Contractor in the Orange County area. Life happened again and Brian and Rachael made a major move to Saint Augustine, Florida in 2014. Having lived in larger cities the couple was ready to get back to that small town living. West to East Builders is a licensed and insured residential contractor.

Rachael, after graduating from Flagler College, moved to Southern California to pursue a career in design. She found herself in the fashion industry and had the opportunity to work with many major retailers. Her focus moved towards interiors and her passion continued to grow, after remodeling her own home. Now as the owner of West to East Design she works side by side with her husband helping their clients furnish and build the dream home.
