Meet the Anderson Homes Team
Founded more than 40 years ago by Rick Anderson, Anderson Homes is dedicated to building homes of uncompromising quality, superior design and enduring value. Anderson Homes has built over 650 homes locally since 1981, and is the premier custom home builder in all of Sequim and Port Angeles.
Founder & President
Rick is the founder and president of Anderson Homes. He oversees design and material selection as well as the entire building process from the moment we meet our clients until they are handed their keys. Rick handles the budgets for each project personally, tracking costs to ensure homes are built at their contract price.
As a second-generation builder, Rick grew up in the construction industry building homes with his father in Seattle and the Olympic Peninsula. After spending his high school summers working in different fields of the construction industry he attended Washington State University where he received a degree in Business Administration with a focus in Finance. While being detail-oriented and a stickler for cost control has kept his projects on-time and on-budget, Rick attributes his success to his desire to treat people with dignity and respect.
Caleb focuses on sales development and operations management. He works closely with clients to transform their vision into a finished home. As a LEED Accredited Professional with the United States Green Building Council, Caleb ensures that our homes are environmentally responsible.
Like his father Rick, Caleb spent his early summers working in the construction trades in various roles, learning different aspects of the construction industry. In 2007 he graduated from the University of Washington with a B.S. in Construction Management. After college, Caleb worked for a general contractor managing large commercial projects in Seattle and Bellevue before returning to the Olympic Peninsula to work with Rick in the family business. In his free time, Caleb can be found rooting for the Huskies (much to the dismay of Rick, a life-long Cougar).
Caleb is a Certified Contract Manager through the University of Washington’s Professional Education Program as well as a Certified Aging-in-Place Specialist through the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB).
Accounting & Administration Manager
Having developed a diversified set of skills from working in the new home building industry since 2002, Trisha has her hands in a little bit of everything at Anderson Homes. She not only manages the accounting and office functions, but also assists the company in a variety of other operational areas including Accounts Receivable, Human Resources, and Plan and Project Management. Trisha is a valued participant in our strategic initiatives and company management. She follows every project from beginning to end, tracking finances, contract completion and compliance records.
A native to the Olympic Peninsula, Trisha is an avid hiker, fisher, camper, and ATV rider. When not keeping Anderson Homes projects running smoothly, she can be found taking full advantage of the Pacific Northwest’s outdoor activities with her husband, Shane.
Garret learned the construction trades during his youth as he worked alongside his father remodeling family investment properties. He earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts in sculpture from Fresno State University, but as Garret says, “Art didn’t pay so well.” He transitioned from sculpting inanimate art objects into sculpting homes as a General Contractor from 1993 to 2015.
Garret envisions his role with Anderson Homes as catalyst and collaborator; he is responsible for delivering the owner’s vision. It is this personal connection to the owner’s dream that brings Garret his greatest reward. His artistic gift supports his endeavors with a keen eye for detail and concern for aesthetic that translates into a high standard of excellence in his work. Garret continues to pursue his artistic talents as a working artist when not stewarding a homeowner’s dream. He also enjoys fishing, working in the yard, and spending time with his family.
John began his career in the residential home building industry in 1989 in Mill Creek, Washington. He says he’s had the pleasure of building dreams ever since—over 600 of them across the Pacific Northwest. Construction was originally intended to be a temporary job while attending school in Small Business Management, but he found he enjoyed the challenges, journey and satisfaction of building something from the ground up. He loves juggling the demands of multiple projects and moved quickly into management, overseeing the construction of 30 to 60 homes a year on average. His reward is delivering a beautiful new home to its owner and witnessing the excitement it creates. John grew up on the Peninsula and considers it a dream come true to be back home working for a company with integrity so he can do things right.
Kenny is a Port Angeles native that has been in the home building industry since 2003. Kenny joined Anderson Homes in 2015 as a construction assistant and worked his way up to a superintendent position. Kenny is proud of the homes he helps create and he enjoys watching them progress from an empty lot to a beautiful home.
Kenny enjoys spending time with his family, fishing, and working on his golf game when he is not out managing the jobsite.
Give Stuart a complex problem to solve and he’s happy; multifaceted and interdisciplinary challenges fulfill him. In 2011 he graduated with a degree in Business Management from California Polytechnic State University (Cal Poly). There he responded to a sense of duty to country by minoring in Military Science and joining Army ROTC, a decision that set him on a path for leadership.
After commissioning to active duty, he served as a Platoon Leader in Afghanistan and Fire Support Officer, responsible for Artillery and Air Support Integration, ultimately reaching the rank of Captain.
When ready for a new success story at the end of his contract, Construction Management offered a natural application for his interests, training and project management skills. He traded his military prestige and paycheck for an entry level position but quickly returned to managing the details. Stuart joined Anderson Homes in May 2018. He rewards himself for a job well done by hiking, skiing, water sports and boating.
Ryan grew up in Sequim and attended our local schools and community college. Ryan finished his collegiate career at Central Washington University and spend the next 17 years in the Seattle area working in various sales and marketing roles. In 2018 he moved his family back to his hometown and built their first new home.
Ryan joined the Anderson Homes team in 2019 to help manage our sales, marketing, and social media initiatives. The insight gained while completing a home as an owner/builder has been very beneficial to our communication with potential clients. When he is not helping at the model homes or taking photos on the jobsite, you will find Ryan working around his own house with his family or exploring the great outdoors of the PNW.

After earning a B.S. in commercial print, Ian worked for several printing companies before deciding to switch gears.
