Brian Kalmes, the owner of Tinwood Homes, is a licensed residential/commercial builder, remodeler, and HVAC contractor.
After receiving his B.S. in Manufacturing Engineering from the University of Wisconsin-Stout, Brian broke ground and started building his very first home. By immersing himself in this process, he quickly learned about all the trades and processes required to build a home from the ground up. Fueled by his lifelong passion for engineering and building and a vision to create homes with both fluidity and functionality, Brian Kalmes started Tinwood Homes in 2017.
Brian prides himself on providing clients with the highest level of value, craftsmanship, and meticulous detail. He is committed to creating an exciting experience for homeowners and remodelers.
With over 27 years of experience in construction and the trades, he's been exposed to all phases of construction, including: foundations, framing, plumbing, electrical work, heating and air conditioning, tile, trim, roofing, landscaping, and more. He is truly a “hands-on” builder, able to grasp and manage every detail of a project with an insider’s perspective.
When he's not constructing and remodeling, Brian’s passion is his family: his wife of 19 years, Cadie, and sons Ethan, Evan, and daughter Ahnna. Football, basketball, track and gymnastics occupy most of the family’s spare time. Brian coached the boys in football from 3rd grade until they entered high school. He also serves on the Booster Club board of directors for Twin City Twisters Gymnastics and is the Meet Director where his daughter Ahnna is a gymnast.
