About Us

Tom Collins

Tom has been a licensed General Contractor since 1989, and for a short time actually worked as a Project Manager for Construction Services and Cassady’s father Bob about 7 years ago. Tom’s carrier has been very far reaching from speculation custom homes, developing land into parcels, and building elite custom homes in the Truckee/ Tahoe area to building and running water treatment facilities in Colorado, Nevada and California. Most recently Tom Collins Construction has had a diversified mix of providing high end bathroom and kitchen additions/remodels, custom horse barns, a dressage equestrian center and a custom estate in Woodside California. Now Tom is very excited to build a boutique, super high-quality and successful general contracting company with Cassady.

Cassady Monsen

Construction, born and raised….. I’ve spent my whole life in residential construction. I like to think that when I was born, instead of a beanie, my mom put a hard hat on my head. My father was in construction, my father’s father was in construction and now I am in construction. Professionally, I’ve spent nearly 2o years in various roles, from Project Manager to General Contractor. I’ve learned the ins and outs of construction management and am always in aww of architects and their creativity, a gift I wish I had. Putting my experience to work, I’ve been busy estimating projects and helping organize that critical first part of the construction process, as well as forging new relationships with the top architects, interior designers and agents in the area. So far, I’ve enjoyed my construction career and am still fascinated by the complexity of building systems and how a project goes from conception to completion, I can’t see myself doing anything else, well, other then moving to Paris and eating fresh croissants every day…but I can dream! My education includes a Bachelor’s Degree in American Studies from UC Santa Cruz, where I graduated with honors….I studied a lot! I like to think of myself as a can-do kind of guy. I play well with others, and try to keep a smile on my face and catchy tune in my heart. I’m a bit of a workaholic, because I am super passionate about what I do, and if you feel the same way connect with me, I’d love to hear from you! When not working,you can find me playing with the best dog in the world Nymeria my chihuahua, or cooking,(I’m a bit of a foodie), traveling, and cheering on our amazing local sports teams.
