Meet the Owners:

Ray & Kathy Tipton are co-founders of Big Sky Builders. Ray has a Bachelor of Science degree from Kansas State University and has been in the construction industry since 1982, primarily in remodeling and new home construction. Past President of the Bitterroot Building Industry Association, Ray has been active in the local and state building associations and a member of the national 'Builder 20 Club'. He has been involved with several community projects, has written a number of articles for construction industry publications, and has been asked to speak at numerous events and seminars teaching 'The Process of Home Construction', 'Universal Design Principles', and 'Green Building Concepts'. Kathy is the heart of Big Sky Builders and wears many hats in the performance of her duties. Along with her responsibilities as office administrator, she can be found answering phones, updating books, helping clients with interior design, helping keep jobs organized and clients updated, and making sure the office always looks great. She understands customer service as well as what it takes to get our clients projects completed.

Caleb Tipton is an owner, estimator, and project supervisor. He is very organized and understands the building process from beginning to end. He makes sure our clients know exactly what they are getting in their project and what it's going to cost. He also produces the documentation that our sub-contractors need to make sure our projects are completed as expected and on time. Caleb is also our very knowledgeable 'Tech Guy' who builds our computers, keeps them running smoothly, and is the 'go-to' guy when something doesn't work as expected. He is active in the BBIA (Bitterroot Building Industry Association) and is a past BBIA President.

Casey Tipton is also an owner, estimator, and project supervisor. He is very detail oriented, and works hard to keep good communication with our clients, as well as making sure our entire team has the information they need to complete their tasks. Casey is the artist in our family and has a great eye for detail and has the ability to know how things should look before they are actually built. He expects the best from those that work around him. Casey is able to break down very complicated projects into manageable tasks that can be more easily accomplished without becoming overwhelmed. His projects show great quality and craftsmanship. Casey has been an active member of the Hamilton Lion's Club.

Big Sky Builders has been voted Builder Of The Year  four times, by the Bitterroot Building Industry Association, and have won the "Best Craftsmanship" award multiple times for homes shown in the BBIA Tour of Homes!
