John Bynum – Principal

John Bynum

~ Principal ~

JOHN BYNUM is a 1993 graduate of the University of Georgia with a Bachelor’s degree in Business Management. Upon graduation he went to work in the building supply industry, eventually spending many years managing custom woodworking and millwork manufacturing facilities. These years fueled his passion for woodworking, design and detail which still thrives today. While continuing to work in the millwork industry, John increased his involvement in the home building segment and soon realized that the local custom home market had become stagnant in new design and building applications. This market would be perfect for him to utilize his expertise in products, design, and manufacturing and in 2004, John Bynum Custom Homes was underway. As he formed his company and shaped his vision, his original principles continued to drive his thoughts…The difference is in the details, and The customer relationship is priority number one. John continues to operate on the same principles today.
