John Lile


John has an extensive background in all facets of residential and light commercial construction. He started his homebuilding experience more than 35 years ago as a framing contractor learning this aspect of the business hands-on. After successfully working in this field for a number of years, John decided to expand his knowledge by joining a successful custom homebuilder to learn more of the business. After learning all he could about the custom homebuilding business, John went on to become a homebuilder with one of the largest and most successful homebuilding companies in the U.S.

John has experience in all aspects of homebuilding, from initial product development to land and lot development to all facets of actual home construction. He has held many positions over the years, most recently as a regional president of a multi-state operation for a large homebuilding company on the east coast. His background and education in homebuilding is extensive, and he has been recognized by many of his peers as a leader in this industry. John also has an extensive background in training and consulting, including management development and leadership training.

In the last 10 years John has dedicated himself to understanding how to build a "high performance" custom home. To this end he has committed 100% of his homes to the Energy Star Program and is also a Green Certified Builder. John is currently working on his commercial contractors license.

Family and Interests

John is an active 61-year-old husband and father of two. He has been happily married to Barbara for more than 36 years, and they are in the process of continuing to adjust to life as "empty nesters." They have two wonderful children (Justin and Jessica) who are both happily married. Justin is following in his Dad's footsteps and currently works for a large national homebuilder. Jessica is a brand new Mom and she and her family just recently located to Augusta Georgia. I'm sure hoping they have some connections for tickets to the Masters!  :) Last, but certainly not least...I am a very proud Grandpa to Chance (4) and Liam (6 months).

John loves the outdoors and cannot think of a better way to spend a day then on his boat fishing or playing a round of golf. In addition, he is addicted to anything with a motor in it and has built and/or restored several cars and motorcycles. John is also an avid photographer who has spent much of his life combining his love of the outdoors with his passion for outdoor and wildlife photography.
