Meet Our Team: Dave S.

Dave Stephens

Dave S., Carpenter

Central to our proven design-build approach is the expert craftspeople who make it all happen–professional carpenters like Dave Stephens, who’s obsessed with home remodeling and considers himself a combination hardcore do-it-yourselfer and team player. 

Dave assists the MSDB lead carpenters in getting projects done on time, on budget, and to specifications. From demolition to rough carpentry, cabinet installations to trim finishes, Dave loves carpentry and does whatever is needed for the company. Whether running base, setting doors, or doing window and door casing, Dave is committed. “I love helping to bring a vision to life and breathing new life into an old house,” beams Dave. “Nothing is more fulfilling than successfully completing a project!”  He overcomes every obstacle with creative innovation and tireless dedication. “Projects at their start seem to have insurmountable challenges, but day after day we tackle each one until we knock the job out of the park, and look back with incredible satisfaction at a job well done!” 

After leading the successful American post-hardcore band, We Came As Romans, for 14 years, Dave decided it was time to settle down a bit and joined MainStreet in 2019.  Currently still a band member, Dave is limiting his music career to minimal touring with the band.  Dave has traveled extensively with the band and truly loves to travel with his wife.  He has been to 42 international countries and 49 American states. He also plays ice hockey and is a raving Red Wings fan. When not exploring restaurants or wine tasting, he hikes with his dogs, Remy and Izzy.

“Both dogs are rescues,” smiles Dave. “Our family keeps growing because we succumb to ‘foster fails’—seems every shelter pet that visits winds up staying!” The Stephens Family also supports Lifeline Animal Rescue and the Human Society.

Wellness is another focus.  Dave supports The Kyle Pavone Foundation, MusicCares, and Heart Support. “Mental health awareness is so important,” insists Dave. “Overall health concerns impact us all, especially those who can’t afford care. We do what we can to help.”
