George Goodwyn, President
George grew up on job sites in Montgomery alongside his father, a civil engineer who founded Goodwyn, Mills, and Cawood. After graduating from the University of Alabama, George began working in commercial construction. Eventually he found his way to his true passion, building quality, affordable homes that are energy efficient, and helping others reach the American Dream – owning their own home.
To George, the best part of construction is simply starting the home build – turning an empty lot into something wonderful that will have so much meaning to someone. Although he spends many long hours on those construction sites, he still makes time for exercising, reading, and his blended family that includes six children and three grandchildren.
Since founding Goodwyn Building in 1985, there has been a lot of growth and change. However, it is the strong family values and sense of tradition that keeps Goodwyn Building strong, and has brought two of George’s children, Carter, and Alison, to the company and the Leadership Team.
"I love what we do -- Building affordable, energy efficient, low maintenance homes so that families can build generational wealth and participate in the American Dream." - George Goodwyn Jr.
Carter Goodwyn, Vice President of Production
Growing up on job sites alongside his father, George, Carter's journey has been intertwined with the very essence of Goodwyn Building. Many of the same employees who once picked him up from school are now his colleagues, reflecting the deep familial roots that define Goodwyn Building.
Carter is intimately involved in every facet of the home building process. From scheduling to execution, he ensures that each project meets the high standards set by Goodwyn Building. A particular point of pride for Carter is witnessing the meticulous tiling of fireplaces—a touch of luxury that encapsulates the essence of Goodwyn Building's craftsmanship.
Away from the hustle of overseeing construction sites, Carter finds solace in the company of his seven-year-old Golden Retriever, Reggie. A dedicated advocate for community service, he spends his free time volunteering and cherishes moments related to Alabama sports.

Her favorite detail about Goodwyn homes is the Spray Foam insulation since it's the superior insulation and helps to lower energy bills.
