We’re here to build your next chapter - and we want you to enjoy the journey

We started Chelsea Design | Build with the intention of redefining the building experience, making it personalized, and full-service. We wanted to go above and beyond to deliver an exceptional end-product and make the journey collaborative and enjoyable, with clear communication. Years later, we remain dedicated to our mission, relationships, and continued growth. We're more than a custom home builder; we're a family.

our people

We’re a small team of family and friends that love building homes

We’re small, and we like it that way – our team is nimble, with the experience and expertise of a large firm. We’re open to new ideas, proactive in finding solutions, and personally invested in you and your project’s success.
Joe Fontana
Larissa Fontana
Joe loves working with his Chelsea family. Day-to-day, Joe delights in finding land and planning projects from clients. His favorite part of the job is watching things come to fruition. Outside the office, he's a family man. When he can find a moment to himself, his personal pursuits include surfing, snowboarding, mountain biking, and hitting the gym.
Tyler O’Bryan
A unicorn in many respects, Larissa has many left- and right-brain qualities. Marrying form and function is her favorite part of the job. The artful quality of Larissa's work comes from a methodological approach to design. When she's not seeking out the perfect finishes for her clients, you'll find her playing Pokemon Go with her kids, organizing her pantry for the 100th time, or letting off steam at the local CrossFit. 
Tyler O’Bryan
Tyler loves taking the creativity and ideas from clients and constructing a home they can build memories in; and a space that they can cherish with their families for years to come. He also enjoys the camaraderie of his talented team members and seeing the fruit of their labors. When he's not at work, Tyler can be found with his family playing tennis, doing STEM projects, and riding bikes. In his spare time, he pours his energy into ministry outreach programs, such as Frontiers USA.
Travis Beaudry
Anthony has been in construction for over 25 years. His passion started young and continues to this day. His favorite part of working on custom home projects is seeing all the hard work from his team come to fruition. He loves watching the home take shape and evolve throughout the build. He strives to establish relationships with clients and everyone he works with built on flexibility, laughter, and respect. While not working, he enjoy going to small town festivals, hiking, and flea markets in the area with my family. 
Lexi Bickler
What Travis likes most about his position at Chelsea is the reaction he gets from friends and family when he show them photos of the custom homes we're building. Also, he feels like we are all on the same team - design, production and client, all working together to bring their vision to life. In his spare time, he enjoy cuddling with his cats by the fire while he reads the latest Nicolas Sparks novel. He also spends a good bit of time cutting grass.
Jessica enjoys building lasting relationships with clients through marketing communications. From big picture strategy to the execution of tactics, she loves it all! When she's not creating informative content or social media posts, Jessica spends all the time she can soaking up the joy of her young family. When she's not playing outside with her kids, she can be found on her laptop writing her next book.

A successful project starts with clear, open, and honest communication. From our deep understanding of your vision to the transparency you have into the build process, you’ll never feel we are out of sync with one another. Our entire team is here to support you and make things fun.
