Scott Carpenter and Charlie Beach, owners of Carpenter Beach Construction, are life-long residents of Loudoun County. They continue to live and raise their families in Round Hill and Waterford respectively.

Both Carpenter and Beach have seen their primary service area, Loudoun County, go through tremendous growth.

In early 2006, Scott and Charlie merged their own successful construction businesses into one. Together offering over 40 years experience working hard within the community to make customers happy.
During the economic downturn Scott and Charlie saw another opportunity. Local construction projects were constantly clearing the raw land of this areas greatest natural resource, hardwood timber. Together they opened another business, Local Wood. Local Wood specializes in transforming timber from construction projects and other related clearing operations to one of a kind pieces in your home. Carpenter Beach Construction in partnership with Local Wood delivers the highest quality custom homes, renovations, and commercial construction solutions in the area.
