William Barker

Owner

W.T. Barker was founded by William T. Barker to provide regional homeowners an alternative to the monotony of today's run-of-the-mill home designs.

Barker, a veteran of the real estate sales, property management and residential development industries, recognized that a custom home building and creative renovation business was the most logical evolution for his expertise. Holding a North Carolina real estate license since 1979, Barker spent a number of years in sales and multi-family property development before branching into other facets of the real estate vertical, such as commercial construction and fit-up management and rental property management.

Spence Harrell

Director of Operations

Spence Harrell's industry tenure spans decades of custom home building under his own name and many more years in and around all facets of residential construction before joining the Barker team in 2002. This Martin County native has a talent to see beyond the established walls and open up compelling possibilities for your home. His ability to create truly unique solutions to your renovation needs is evident in his work, and his passion is contagious.

“To me building a house or undertaking a renovation is more than just installing 2' x 4's and new cabinets. It is about a vision and a creativity that is not blinded by the obvious but magnifi es the possibilities. This is the reason we avoid making assumptions and ask a lot of questions - not necessarily looking to know what you want, but why you want it. We can then use our experience to provide you with a candid assessment of your project, presenting you with viable options that will excite you.”

Services

Our goal is to help you create a tangible vision for your home

Artist James Whistler once said, “An artist is not paid for his labor, but his vision.” Wanting a great home is easy, but how do you achieve that? We understand that you know the wants and needs for your home better than anyone. We strive to listen much more than we speak, and thus try to extract from you a more expansive vision of the project. We like to know “why” you would like a new kitchen or an additional room. Our job is to translate that emotion into a purpose-driven, warm living space that will provide peace of mind and the utmost confi dence in its quality.

The company's vision is to offer customers an investment in lifestyle. Through consistent communication and a ceaseless commitment to service, W.T. Barker has crafted a reputation as one of the area's most sought-after residential contractors. From affordable custom homes to stunning kitchen and bath renovations to inviting porches and sunrooms that combine insight into contemporary design and materials with hammer-to-nail artistry and quality, W.T. Barker is the premier choice for custom residential construction in the Triangle.

Design-Build

Our Design-Build Approach is a mentality that we maintain by taking responsibility of the project, minimizing risks, and ultimately costs to you.

This approach designates us as the sole source of contact for your project. Our team will coordinate and work together with the architect, tradesmen, and designers. Together we can consider all aspects of the project from inception to completion and build the best plan for the criteria proposed.

Design-Build brings together the major parties of the project and incorporates their input and experiences in the design before the project starts. This allows each specialty to discuss each aspect of the process so that there are minimal surprises that arise.

Ultimately, this value-added approach allows us to create for you an exemplary product in the most effective and timely manner.
