Jeff Sherwood | Owner
After graduating from Calvin Christian High School and Kent Career Technical Center, he attended Grand Rapids Community College for Business, while working with some talented carpenters. He learned so much during these years all while being mentored by professionals. Jeff knew that one day he would own his own company.
In 2007, Jeff made his dreams come true, and he decided to start his own company. This was a difficult decision because of the state of the economy, however, Jeff trusted God and knew this was what he was called to do. With the support of many, Sherwood Custom Homes, LLC began.
Now Sherwood Custom Homes, LLC is a business that continues to grow and has a history of wonderful customers. Jeff loves designing and building what people will soon call their own. His attention to detail and passion for custom woodwork is shown each day.
Jeff continues to pour his hard work into each project. He loves every aspect of building – working on-sight, being in the office, and meeting with customers. His good communication skills and honesty build a great working relationship.

She has always enjoyed drawing and creating, but it wasn’t until taking a college art course that Denise considered that her artistic ability could become more than just a hobby. She graduated as valedictorian with her Bachelors in Fine Art, Interior Design from Kendall College of Art and Design in 2003.
