Will Evert and Jason Brownlee built their business partnership on a desire to utilize the often over-looked capability to create beautiful homes with a minimal carbon footprint. As contractors with over 20 years of detail-driven experience in the field, this unique team set out to approach each Evert & Brownlee project with this desire at its core.

A New Jersey native, Will Evert has called North Carolina home since moving to Asheville with his wife Peyton in 2003. They reside in North Asheville with their two sons and Rhodesian ridgeback, Winnie; taking full advantage of all the biking, hiking and trout fishing the surrounding Blue Ridge Mountains have to offer.

Jason Brownlee returned to his hometown of Asheville with his wife Rachel in 2004 after residing in California, Pennsylvania and Costa Rica. They also live in North Asheville with their daughter and two basset hounds; enjoying gardening, fishing and ample time in the woods whenever possible.

In addition to custom home building, Evert and Brownlee share a passion for nature and being on the water, which drove them into the exploration of wooden boat building. After successfully designing and building custom wooden drift boats, the team turned their efforts into founding their sister-company, French Broad Boatworks in 2012, building detailed custom drift-boats and flat bottom skiffs to order. (Thus the nautical star used in both business logos to symbolize 'the way home' for all travelers on land and sea alike).
