Chris Haynes

Owner + President

Chris started C. Haynes Construction — now known as Wild Creek Custom Renovations — in 2005. As a teenager, he worked during summers and on weekends doing landscaping, painting, and plumbing contractors. Fresh out of high school, Chris worked for several different companies building custom homes and learning from the best of the best. Within just a couple years he became the Project Manager.

At the age of 21, the contractor he worked for closed his business and his former boss asked him to take care of a few of his favorite customers. Rather than looking for another job, Chris decided to start his own company. There were many growing pains and it took a lot of hard work, but he kept going, even through the economic downturn from 2008-2011. Today, the future is bright, and Wild Creek has thousands of customers now living in their dream homes.
