Skyler Godfrey

Built by Brett Inc. | Custom Homes Superintendent
Skyler grew up on our custom built home job sites. Our long term subcontractors have seen him around since he was a toddler.  (You might want to ask them about a story having to do with an occupied porta-poty and some firecrackers.) In high school he worked for a framing crew and that is when he realized he wanted to follow in his Dad's footsteps. He is a graduate of Kickapoo High School class of 2008, and graduated from Missouri State University with a BS in Construction Management in December 2011. In 2012 he joined Built By Brett, Inc. full time. 

When he isn't on a custom home job site, you can find Skyler somewhere in the outdoors Kayaking, Camping, Mountain Climbing, Snow Boarding, Golfing, Hiking, Fishing, or Motocross-ing.  He is an avid Chiefs and Cardinals fan as well!


Brett is a master at innovative design and superb craftsmanship. The house I live in, he built. The comments by visitors are endless. Not only is this house unique, Brett has a reputation for honesty and integrity with both clients and his suppliers.
