THE FUTURE OF HOME BUILDING

The name TatumTek is constructed from the ancient Greek word “Tektōn” — Master Craftsman/Artison/Builder.  The mentality we come to work with everyday is “building” quality products and people. This double entendre speaks not only to our job of crafting beautiful places for our customers, but “building” humanity as well.  In a world that loves to tear down – we thrive to be builders!
