Bowling Green Home Builder 

Today in the building industry many people build houses, but a true home builder is hard to find. Many contractors just run a business, relying on each of their trade's ability, not having the love and knowledge it takes to make a house and home. At Providence we pride ourselves in sharing years of hands-on skills and experience to make your home truly different.

Our History

Having been gifted at a very early age, Steve Nelson...With lots of family support and encouragement continued to pursue building as his only passion. By the time he was in high school, he was working beside some of the best builders in town.  His junior year he started his own business and was trimming, building decks, and custom cabinets on his own. Steve's senior year was spent on small building projects as well as working in the local lumber yard pushing to further his knowledge of the building industry.  Then all four years of college, shop class was first on his list.  He learned every aspect of residential construction. By the fall of 1996 he was working hand in hand with the instructor on an entire 1900 square foot house, complete with full basement, 3 bedrooms, 2 baths.

The project was an overwhelming success. By the end of four years he had completed several homes and numerous custom cabinets, furniture, decks and remodels.  Having earned a reputation at college for his quality and commitment, he was also given the opportunity to construct the college's 20 feet of custom cabinets, the secretaries desk and all the bookcases for a local library. He graduated with a B.A. in small business management, and a minor in residential construction. Shortly after college, he was hired by one of the fastest growing home builders in Houston, TX.  There using all of his knowledge and talents, he learned and perfected the production home industry. Within a year he was awarded "Superintendent of the Year" managing the complete construction of more than 30 houses at a time and completing over one hundred that first year.

Now living here in Bowling Green, KY,  with his wife and children, you have the advantage of utilizing his 20 years of experience, knowledge, and perfection, with Providence Homes.
