Who We Are
Sunwood has been your trusted Connecticut home builder since 1985. We understand building or remodeling a home is a significant investment. The choices you make for your new space will set the stage for next phase of your life, and support your comfort and style. When searching for the right contractors to remodel or build your custom home, you want to know you can trust your home builder throughout the process. At Sunwood, we pride ourselves on honesty, transparency, and providing you the best service while leaving you completely satisfied with your new home.
Bob Wiedenmann Jr. began as a carpenter installing roofing and wood siding over thirty years ago. In 1978, he put his knowledge to work and started his own company working for other builders and homeowners as an exterior carpenter. With each project, Bob gained a reputation for quality craftsmanship, honest customer service, and exceeding the expectations of his clients as a dependable home builder in Connecticut. In 1985, with these values in mind, he established Sunwood Development Corp. with the primary objective of building and developing quality new homes and communities. Since then, Sunwood has successfully built over 600 homes with each new home treated as "the most important one".
Always thinking of ways to improve, grow, and offer better service and results, Bob joined the prestigious “Builder 20 Club”, sponsored by the National Association of Home Builders. Members share and compare information, look for trouble spots, and offer each other advice on how to improve their performance—which translates into satisfied customers! Staying up to date on home contracting is critical for our team to serve the community as the top-rated Connecticut home builder. Bob believes that ongoing training is key to providing customers with the best quality and service possible.
