Ken was raised learning about residential construction and how to fix stuff at an early age. His interest in how things work led him to take courses on anything that grabbed his curiosity, be it residential wiring, plumbing, heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC), residential building codes, general business courses, the how-tos of construction, and owning a business.
From 1998 to 2012, he worked in the construction industry to expand his ability and diverse knowledge. He prides himself on being a hands-on contractor, not a paper contractor, which allows him to be able to explain the building processes to our customers with accuracy and in-depth insights.
In 2012, he became a licensed contractor and formed Salt Line Construction LLC, primarily being a subcontractor for other companies. In 2016, he incorporated and started building spec homes and mid-range custom homes, although he has also built high-end million dollar homes.
Ken’s life before construction included two enlistments in the United States Marine Corps. His son followed in his footsteps, enlisting in the Marine Corps upon graduating high school. Ken loves the outdoors if time allows. He is a devoted husband and a father of three.
Donnie was born and raised in the Lowcountry. Out of high school in 1997, he started working as an electrician's apprentice. After a few years, he became interested in framing and joined a framing crew around 2000. He enjoyed working with wood, and over time, he has gained knowledge and skill in the construction industry. Today, he is the site foreman of our company, specializing in trim carpentry and general interior carpentry. We also consider him Ken’s site supervisor since the two of them started working together in 2003. Donnie knows the quality of workmanship expected by the customers. His loyalty to Ken and the company is unsurpassed through the more than 18 years they’ve worked side by side.
Donnie is a quiet man who keeps to himself, at least until you get to know him. He married his high school sweetheart, and they have been married since 2004. They are the proud parents of two boys. Donnie enjoys spending time with his family at his 25-acre country home.
Sue has an extensive background as a small business entrepreneur in several different industries and cultures. She came to us as a customer, and we could quickly see her strong business and financial savvy. She was bilingual too!
She came on as our in-house bookkeeper and financial consultant in May 2018. Sue provides for our clients the ability to answer any questions about billing or how the financial process of their build is handled. This is her only job now, as she was retired when we brought her into the company. She is dedicated to the company and client satisfaction as if it was her own business. She is indispensable to the daily operations and success of our services.
Sue has lived a diverse life—traveling worldwide and singing and dancing at the ‘72 Olympics in Germany. She is also a fair weather downhill skier, Caribbean scuba diver, and has an endless list of life adventures that makes her the unique asset she is to our company.
Brandon started working as a young teen, but it wasn’t until 2015 when he was part of a framing crew that he found his niche. Here at our company, he has found his working family, and he loves learning all the aspects of the construction industry through the mentorship of Ken and Donnie. His motivation comes from working with a team with integrity to produce quality structures. He is quickly perfecting his craft.
Brandon likes spending his free time restoring cars, playing the guitar, and spending time with family.
