Construction runs in the Little family. Bob Little grew up in a construction family and worked for his father. Now, Bob is proud to have his own son, Gage, as a partner in their family owned construction business.
G. Little Construction has a long history in the Port Townsend community. The company began in 1979 when Bob Little and Whitey Johnson teamed up to form Johnson & Little Construction. In 1984, Bob Little took sole ownership of the company and changed the name to Little & Little Construction. Bob continued to build on the company’s reputation for building quality custom and luxury homes.
Over the next 20 years, Little & Little Construction restored some of Port Townsend’s most beautiful historic homes and built some of the area’s unique modern homes, drawing attention for quality and craftsmanship.
With so many years working with local homeowners, Bob felt he could serve the community by expanding beyond custom home construction. In 2006, Bob founded Kitchen & Bath Studio, complete with a local showroom and a team of kitchen and bath designers.
We built our first floating home in the Port Townsend Shipyard in 2011. When the home was launched into Port Townsend Bay, it drew a large crowd as the community gathered to see the unique sight and support the company. Since then, G. Little Construction has built several floating homes bringing a new industry to the local economy.
In 2012, Bob partnered with his son Gage and brought Little & Little Construction and Kitchen & Bath Studio together as one company, renaming the company G. Little Construction. This move ensured the Little family would remain in construction for many years.
We our proud of our long history of supporting the community by working with local tradesmen. We can maintain the quality of our work in large part because of the quality of the tradesmen we work with.
G Little has built a reputation because of our approach to building a home. The construction process is a team effort with the home owner being part of the team and having a seat at the table equal to the builder, sub-contractor, or architect.
Being a family owned business, we focus on the family of everyone who works for the company. Our dedicated and devoted staff has enabled us to maintain consistent quality for so long. Two of the company’s craftsmen have been with the company for over 20 years. Five more have been with the company for over ten years.
We have made a shift from focusing on custom and luxury homes, to adding small projects, remodels, and kitchen and baths to the mix. Now, customers can get the same luxury quality G Little Construction is known for on a smaller scale. In the upcoming years, we will continue to apply the quality custom building concept to remodels and small projects.
