Meet the team

Brian A. Valish - President

Brian started out his career working for multiple contractors building custom homes during high school and then continued his career after graduating. When he graduated he furthered his dream by entering into a Architectural Drafting school. During these next couple of years he worked very hard by building homes during the day and then attending night school learning the drafting trade.

After earning his Pennsylvania certificates for Mechanical and Architectural drafting he started working for a company directly, building High Performance custom homes in the Greater Lehigh Valley. While working here, Brian worked aside of management, assisted Energy Audits, and installed Solar ( PV and Hot Water).

When Brian went his separate ways from the company, he then became a Subcontractor working for local contractors. Using his communication and carpentry skills, Brian was fast growing and realized that it was time to form a company that would promise to bring the highest professionalism along with best well rounded craftsmen to any doorstep. Habitat Building Group, LLC entered into the industry in early 2013. Now, as an Award-Winning Company they are growing rapidly and have continually succeeded as one of the number one competitors in the Greater Lehigh Valley – Poconos and surrounding areas.
