Our Story

A brief history of Reaves Buildings

FOUNDER’S STORY

As a returning Veteran, Lloyd Reaves saw a need for quality, affordable housing and had his ‘aha’ moment when he noticed a specific product being used to build mobile homes. Bowstring trusses. He knew then and there that this factory he had purchased would change the face of construction, and the use of wood trusses.

Lloyd also realized that wood truss technology could be the solution to all the reasons why buildings fail. After spending many years perfecting the process of applying wood truss technology to other building components, such as wall and roof brace panels and special columns, Lloyd was awarded a patent for his invention. From the beginning Lloyd knew the importance of innovation in construction, but knew innovation was nothing without dedication and quality craftsmanship. His motto has always been “growth through excellence” and this is what he has instilled into his company.
