ABOUT SIDER BROS.

Sider Bros. Builders was founded in 1972 by Carlton and Leonard Sider, two brothers who honed their craft
by watching their father, Alvin, build custom doors, trim and molding at a local planing mill.


Today, Carlton’s sons, Wayne and Shawn Sider run the family business and uphold the family traditions of
quality, integrity and, above all else, craftsmanship.

YOUR

TEAM

OUR FAMILY

We look forward to meeting your family and crafting a home
you’ll fill with memories for generations to come.
In the meantime, we’re pleased to introduce you to our family.

Shawn Sider

Shawn is most likely the name you heard when someone referred you to Sider Bros. Builders. Shawn is the first face you’ll meet and the last person to meticulously review every detail of your home, ensuring every square inch meets and exceeds his standards before we welcome you home. Shawn leads client and trade relations, permitting, budgets and oversees day-to-day site operations to ensure a seamless build process and impeccable quality.

Wayne & Drew Sider

Father and son,
masters of millwork

Wayne learned the art of millwork from his father, Carlton Sider, one of our founding fathers. In 2007, Wayne began sharing his craft with his son, Drew. Today, Wayne and Drew work side-by-side in our mill, carefully crafting every cabinet base, every door and drawer panel, every piece of trim and every inch of millwork that will go into your custom home. Their collective talents know no limits.

Nicole Empringham

Nicole leads our design-build program, preparing original architectural designs and drawings for custom new builds and large-scale renovations. Nicole brings your vision to life with 3D renderings of your home, including interior layouts and detailed finishes, so you can see the design take shape before construction even begins. Nicole will work closely with you to refine the little details that take your home from ordinary to extraordinary.

Jenn Gmoser

Jenn will help oversee your construction project to keep your build on track. Jenn will support you throughout the finish selection process and works closely with our suppliers to procure your flooring and tile, plumbing fixtures, lighting, appliances and more, ensuring all the right finishes are on-site and ready for installation. Jenn can also help you source any soft finishes, such as custom drapes, blinds and furnishings.
