Richard Kees with his wife, Shirley, founded Quality Crafted Homes in 1985. Richard's love of home building was inherent, and for that reason Quality Crafted Homes has developed into the family owned company that it is today. From Richard and Shirley's children, and now extending into the third generation of family members, everyone brings their own unique talents and perspective to the company. We find that family participation based on loyalty and dedication to a single cause, has strengthened our company through the years, and will continue to do so in the years to come.
