About The Owners

Chris Brook
Dave Wilkison

I grew up on the coast of Maine working every summer and weekends when I was not playing soccer, baseball or skiing for my Dad who owned and operated Quality Homes, Inc. I worked my tail off for the excavator, foundation company, framer, insulator, trim crew, roofer, painter and I was the general laborer for all since I was 12.  I absolutely love the opportunity to create something that enhances the lives of others. Construction is in my blood and has become a passion after years of toiling in the trenches. The Vail Valley has been my home since 1991 as I have met the love of my life, Bobbi, here and we are raising three fantastic children, Woody, Chloe and Evee. When I am not working now, I enjoy doing whatever the family is doing especially church service, hiking and skiing.

I grew up in Iowa working summers for a family friends custom home company doing all aspects of construction. After graduating from high school I moved to Colorado for school. After 2 years of school I started working back in construction and never turned back. I started A.W. Interiors Inc.  in 1987 with our focus on interior millwork installation. We have done all types of projects from large commercial to multi family and big custom homes for 29 years. The last 6 years have expanded to more general contracting with 3 crews still doing millwork installations. I enjoy keeping my tools around and working with the guys in the field when needed. Also enjoy Skiing, Biking Hiking and hunting along with water sports. Vail area has been our home since 1980 and have raised both our kids in the valley.
