Armed with the belief that customer service builds the best relationships, he founded Templeton Building Company in 1980. Over the years, his keen ability to weave his ever-expanding knowledge and experience with respect for client’s vision has produced many beautiful homes and lasting friendships. His hands-on approach to leadership and friendly demeanor has shaped Templeton into a well-known and widely respected company.
Steve holds a Michigan Builders License and was one of the first builders in Michigan to become a Certified Green Professional through the National Association of Home Builders.
