hello, FROM   BeechWood  

Since 1999, Beechwood partners Jim Fileccia & Brian McLaughlin have devoted themselves to working with clients to design + build homes with lasting character – beautiful spaces that are comfortable, refined, and technically superior.

Brian Mclaughlin:  founding Partner

Brian focuses primarily on the customer care and business aspects of the projects. Customers work closely with him throughout the building process, starting during the planning phase, while often collaborating with architects and designers to fine-tune building plans and budgets.  Through all aspects of contracting, scheduling, billing, and selections you’ll have regular and timely communications with him.  Brian is an NAHB designated Certified Green Professional, and spends plenty of time in the field meeting clients on-site, coordinating design details with the Beechwood team,  and lending a hand where needed.  He’s a biking fanatic, comes from a huge family, and is a busy empty-nester with his wife in Chelsea.

Jim Fileccia:   Founding Partner

Jim serves as our primary site supervisor. With 30+ years of building experience rooted in project management, framing, and finish carpentry, he sees the big picture and the fine details to be handled.  He’s particularly creative with site layouts, framing solutions, and complex mechanical set-ups.  As a Certified Green Professional, he’s constantly focused on ensuring the building is as beautiful behind the drywall as it will be as a finished residence.  Jim has ongoing contact with our customers, suppliers and contractors to keep the projects running smoothly.  He’s a dedicated Cross-fit guy, loves U of M sports, and lives in Dexter with his family.

joe fileccia: Small Projects

Joe manages many of Beechwood’s micro-projects - from kitchen remodels to basement finishes to small additions & renovations.  We like to have our hands in a select few of these jobs to satisfy the needs of past customers and valued referrals.  Joe is a licensed builder in his own right.  Skilled at customer care, he’s a good listener and very experienced at all aspects of framing, finish carpentry, and electrical / mechanical details.  With the full backing of the Beechwood team, Joe gets the work done beautifully - and is very popular with our clients !  When he's not building stuff, he's killing it on the drums with his band, or enjoying time with his wife at home in Tecumseh.
