George Goodwyn, Jr. grew up on job sites in Montgomery, AL with his father, George Goodwyn Sr., a civil engineer who founded Goodwyn, Mills, and Cawood. Following in his father’s footsteps, George graduated from the University of Alabama and began working in commercial construction. While he thrived through precision and attention to detail on the job site, he was unfulfilled.
George discovered that in building homes not only could he build a team that would succeed together and remain together – with many of the same team members working at Goodwyn Building today, but also play a part in his neighbors reaching the American Dream – owning their own home. In 2010, with more than 20 years of experience under his belt, George set out to build an affordable, quality home that was also energy efficient, hoping to truly create an affordable home to buy and own.
Since then, Goodwyn Building has continued to grow and is now proudly building in multiple markets in Alabama and boasts a team of professionals that provide a world class building experience. Goodwyn Building’s family values and strong sense of tradition is continuing with the next generation. George’s children, Carter and Alison, have joined George at Goodwyn Building and together they work to blend their expertise and passion to create a warm and family-oriented environment for our homeowners and team members alike. Together, their complementary skills and shared dedication to a family-oriented approach ensure that Goodwyn Building remains rooted in the values that have made us who we are today.
Through that growth, Goodwyn Building has continued to hold fast to the goal of building a home that has exceptional livability and providing homeowners the assurance that they will continue to be able to afford their home far into the future with well thought out, energy-efficient homes that builds generational wealth through homeownership.
We invite you to join the Goodwyn Building family!
Improving and investing in the communities in which we build and live in is our number one priority. We are proud to partner with these exceptional nonprofits, which like us work hard every day to improve the lives of others and our communities.
