After more than 30 years of building and remodeling homes on Cape Cod, Scott Peacock still loves what he does—and that, he says, has been the key to his success.

“I’m just so lucky to have built a business in the place that I was born. That’s huge for me, and it has allowed me to raise my family here,” Peacock says. “Every day is different. We’re constantly being challenged with new problems, which are fun to figure out.”

IMG_4426 Growing up in his father’s painting business, Peacock was immersed early on in the world of home design and construction. “At a young age, my Dad put a lot of trust in my brother, John, and me,” Peacock says. “He had us running jobs while we were still in high school. We were taught how to estimate, and then we were in charge of his crews. It was a big responsibility, but I guess it came naturally to us.”

When business was slow in the winter of 1980, Peacock had the opportunity to frame houses with David Brodd, a local builder. “Unfortunately for my father, after that winter I could never think of going back to painting, as I loved watching these houses go from clearing a lot, to building a framed house, in such a short period of time,” he says.

Today, Peacock’s wife, Amy, runs his Osterville office and his team includes five employees—some of whom have been with him for 25 years. Peacock says he and his team work closely with homeowners and architects to design what their clients are looking for. “I try to be as involved in every step of the process as I can be, from start to finish,” Peacock says, whether the project is a whole house remodel, or a simple addition.

This makes the process, he explains, as painless as possible for customers. “Our whole goal is to make the home building and remodeling process a fun, rewarding experience for every single client,” Peacock says.
