The Skytop Advantage

SkyTop Homes is a family owned and operated company that takes great pride in building houses that our clients and their families can call home.

Backed by decades of construction experience from our CEO Gerry McDowell, Staff Engineer Blake Howard, and Construction Manager Kevin Shadle, we not only build using time-tested methods and materials - but we also strive to provide innovative touches to each SkyTop project.


Our Team


Gerry McDowell


Gerry got his start in construction in 1988 as an Electrician and fell in love with the entire home building process. He has been constructing a wide range of unique and breathtaking homes ever since; homes ranging from multimillion dollar lake houses, to residential developments, to hunting cabins. Gerry is always actively involved in the building process. He sees and touches his projects from the drawing board to the moving truck. Gerry believes that the art and passion that goes into building a home for a family is the most important part of the job. His heart and his hands are the foundation of the homes he builds.
