Our Story 

Bob Wiedenmann Jr. began in the construction business over thirty years ago as a carpenter installing roofing and wood siding. In 1978 he started his own company working for other builders and homeowners. 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 how he does business, 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 Bob so that he can continue to serve his community as the top-rated Connecticut home builder. Bob believes that on-going training is key to providing customers with he best quality and service possible.


Our Commitment to Education 

We recognize that to be the best builder and home remodeling service provider possible, continued education and training is essential. Through education we continue to develop our skills and constantly improve on both the product and the service we offer. We encourage continuing education for all of our employees. This ensures that we will always be aware of the current best practices, processes and materials to meet our client's needs. To be the best builder you can’t afford to stagnate. Education brings us fresh ideas and new energy to grow and thrive. Sunwood Development would not be a great Connecticut home builder if it wasn’t for the level of commitment and investment we take to continuously develop our knowledge and skillset.

Bob Wiedenmann and his daughter, Amy Standish, were recently invited by the New Jersey Builders Association to be judges for their Sales and Marketing (SAM) Awards. The SAM Awards honor builders and companies that supply products and services to the building industry in New Jersey for their excellence in residential design and marketing programs. Bob and Amy helped to choose New Jersey’s “Best in Class” award recipients in over 100 categories.
