#160 Matt Feeney of Feeney Design Build going from 8 builds in 2020 to building 25 homes this year
Matt opens the show with Darius Rucker “Wagon Wheel”, great way to open the show. Operating this business for 13 years, coming from a family of tradespeople with his Dad being an old school carpenter, Matt always had a hunger for construction but he never wanted to be that “guy” that just gave in and gave up and stopped caring.
Matt works with realtors to secure lots, he brings in other builders, friends in the industry and they share the lots, they work together to build each other’s business, the way it really should be when it comes to The Construction life. A 2003 Conestoga graduate, Matt felt he didn’t have the book smarts, he loved working with his hands. Covid changed everything for Matt and his business, what he thought was primed to close his business down, pushed his business to new levels, more homes, more employees, loads more business. Matt’s working with a 5-6 month building window from excavation to delivery and with delays in material as long as 4-5 months at a time, it can me challenging to finish these homes on time.
Matt and the brand he has built has always been and will always be about customer service and his team has the same mindset, his suppliers have the same mindset, his building team has always been about customer service and he believes he can never change that, just for an extra buck or two on the bottom line. Matt shares his greatest fear in building a construction business and we can all relate.
