In 2002, Robert began fulfilling a life-long goal of building dream homes when he opened the doors to Custom Homes by Robert Wood. Prior to starting his own business, he worked as a supplier to home builders for more than 20 years. This partnership between supplier and builder provided the platform to appreciate the importance of being engaged at the local and state level of the home building industry. Robert served as the 2011 President of the West Texas Home Builders Association and became active in Texas Association of Builders. For the past six years, he has been involved with TAB’s Executive Committee and is a State Director. All of Robert’s professional engagements rank second to his commitment to his community. Robert and his wife, Candace, devote considerable time and resources to the Make a Wish Foundation, March of Dimes, Highpoint Village, and Lubbock Homes for Heroes.
