The Team

Richard Nelson | Owner
Richard Image
Richard Nelson started his building career in the spring of 1984 as a carpenter’s apprentice. He knew right away that the building industry was where he could thrive – the perfect industry to use his skills as a people person and his love for creating. Richard quickly grew through the ranks from apprentice to carpenter, to lead carpenter, to manager. He has continued education throughout the years in a variety of ways. One of the most successful has been attending classes at Yestermorrow Design/Build School in Waitsfield, VT, where he continues to enhance his skills. Richard enjoys downtime with his wife and three children.

Matthew joined the Peachtree Builders’ Burlington Crew in 2020. Matt attended college for business but wasn’t excited about spending his days behind a desk. After graduating college, he joined the Marine Corps for 4 years, learning skills like discipline and integrity, which he brings to work every day. After leaving the military, Matt attended the Vermont Woodworking School and realized that his true passion was building (a trade he first learned as a kid working alongside his grandfather). Matt enjoys the opportunity to work with his hands, and to see a project go from concept to completion. When Matt isn’t working, he can be found spending time with his wife and four children, hanging out with friends, or at the gym.
