Phil Beehler started Premier over 15 years ago after spending several years in the construction trades. A Traverse City native, he quickly worked his way up through the ranks to framer and ultimately trim carpenter on high end new home construction. It is in these years as a framer that Phil realized his potential and learned more than anything his love for the process of building new homes. Originally buying lots and building only spec homes Phil eventually began to earn the trust required for a fine custom home builder. Fast forward to today, Premier Custom Homes has become a well respected member of the Traverse City area home builders and is an active member in the Traverse City Home Builders Association. Focusing most of his time these days as a custom home builder, several  things remain from Phil’s early years in construction,  his attention to detail, fine craftsmanship, and his love of the process.
