About Us

Sulaski & Tinsley Homes, a design build company with a North Carolina unlimited general contractors license, was established in 2005 by Robert Sulaski and Mike Tinsley, both former executives in the homebuilding industry. One of Western North Carolina’s most experienced home builders, Sulaski & Tinsley is a regular winner in the Asheville Home Builders Association’s annual Parade of Homes.

Robert and Mike, along with the Cecil family—of Biltmore Farms—together formed The Broadlands Company in 1999, quickly becoming one of the largest home-building companies in Western North Carolina. After a successful and profitable run, Robert and Mike sold their interest and again, used their knowledge and experience to create—Sulaski & Tinsley.


Our Process

At Sulaski & Tinsley, our practice of sitting around a table sharing ideas, discussing your dreams and getting your plans just right is our core principle and we continue to implement technology to carry your plans from the drawing table to your property. Your contract, plans, specifications, progress of construction and site photos are available through our construction management software, Builder Trend. Your individual client account provides you access 24/7.

First step. Our clients have the flexibility of bringing their plans to us, developing plans with one of our architects or selecting one of our plans and customizing. As we discuss your plans, we set a conceptual budget and develop a set of specifications. Specifications outline the structural elements of your home and communicate the exterior and interior features and finishes that make it your home. Our 25 years of experience and our interior designers are available to assist you during this process.

Second Step. When the plans and specifications are satisfactory to you, we develop a detailed estimate then confirm the budget with you.

Third Step. During the construction process, we will meet with you on the property discussing where you house will be located on your lot then review, with you, our progress and the work ahead. Concurrently, a project schedule and photos will be provided on your BuilderTrend® account and regularly updated. Monthly draw requests are transmitted to you and your financial institution through Builder Trend®.

Fourth Step. You move-in!
