Ben began his construction career as a framing carpenter in high school, working summers for a Builder who was a family friend on his custom homes. What began as a summer job, turned into a full time job in college working around classes and then into hands-on remodeling including his own fraternity house. After an opportunity to go back to work for the same builder he started with originally this time as a project manager, Ben fell in love with the entire building process and met his now-wife Cassie who was studying Interior Design in college. His journey to Northwest Arkansas from Central Arkansas in 2005 included helping his father with his sprinkler and landscaping business, building a 62 unit patio home subdivision in Little Rock for a developer and the role of COO of a production building company from 2005-2008 where he oversaw multiple superintendents and 120+ homes. In 2008, he went back to his first love in construction, the high end custom homes that he began his building career with. His work has now been featured in multiple publications, and he has won many awards for his work including TOP TEN Best Residential Builders in Citiscapes Magazine several years in a row. After serving as President of the NWA Home Builders Association both in 2011 and 2020 and the Board of Directors for 12 years, he currently serves on the Arkansas Home Builders Association State Board of Directors and is slated to be Chairman in 2023.
At the age of 20, Cassie Mills enrolled in the Intro To Interior Design course at the University of Central Arkansas. She graduated in 2002 with a B.S. in Consumer Science and Interior Design. Over the past 20 years, Cassie has had a specialized focus around flooring, lighting, windows, doors, and hardware working for various showrooms in Little Rock and Springdale. Alongside her love of product sales, she has a passion for coming alongside BBD clients and assisting them with the architectural details and floor plans of their homes. Outside the office, Cassie enjoys watching her kids grow and develop their own talents, date nights and live music with Ben, and serving in her church in their young couples ministry.

Originally from Atlanta Georgia, Jay has been building since the mid 1980's. When he started working as a custom home framer, he decided in the late 90s to head out west to Sun Valley, Idaho. In Sun Valley he had the opportunity to work on multiple complicated and complex custom projects both in management and in the field. He loves the puzzle of figuring out how to make all of the house systems work together and always strives to exceed the owner’s hope and vision. When he is not building homes, he enjoys being on his bike riding on the trails in NWA. It was the amazing bike trails and year round riding that inspired Jay and his family to relocate to Bentonville during COVID. Jay loves coaching and volunteering with various youth bike clubs and race teams and he loves all of the outdoor recreation available in NWA!
