Higgins Custom Builders Inc. is a premier General Contractor specializing in residential remodels including additions, kitchens, bathrooms, custom carpentry projects, installation of fine finishes and custom home construction.
Bruce Higgins, President of Higgins Custom Builders Inc. takes personal satisfaction in the results he and his team produce.
Raised where his father regularly employed him in construction projects during his high school and college years, Bruce had early on developed a firm knowledge of construction methods in all aspects from digging and pouring footings all the way through each construction phase down to the last stroke of the brush on the final coat of varnish. Following several years of employment building homes, he furthered his training and received a degree in Mechanical Engineering from Lawrence Technological University. This training enhanced his skills and knowledge base to help him get his business started. It has proven to be a real asset in designing living spaces and solving technical issues that tend to pop up at different stages in the remodeling process.
Bruce says, “When I first meet with a client to look at their project, I don’t just look at the facts alone. I am not limiting myself to the “box” of what is immediately visible. I am listening to develop a connection with the client, getting a feel for their likes and dislikes, their wants and wishes, their family dynamics relative to how they use the space, and visualizing in my mind how I can enhance that area for them. Regarding the overall project, my mind is in “what if” mode.” “I’m asking myself, What if that wall was here? What if that cabinet was over there? That’s where the optimal designs, and in the end, best renovations come from. It starts in the mind, and you have to feel it in your heart.”
Proof of the success of that method is visible in the functionality and beauty in the projects that have been completed, on the faces of delighted clients, and in the expressions of wow! and awesome! from their family and friends.
His reputation for integrity, innovative design, and high quality workmanship, at reasonable prices, has led many to have Bruce lead out in the designing and building of their remodeling projects. With his team of experienced, trustworthy workers, dozens of homes in the four counties area of Oakland, Washtenaw, Wayne, and Livingston, are sporting new looks and enjoying renewed living spaces from Higgins Custom Builders.
