BRISTOL BUILT is a family owned residential design-build firm that has a focus on streamlining families' modern lifestyle with an emphasis on high energy efficiency homes.  

Business operations are headed up by husband and wife team, Tan and Anne-Marie, who met in architectural school while at the University of Minnesota. Tan spent a couple of years living on a wooden sailboat in San Francisco after college while doing his architectural internship. It was during this time that he experienced how meaningful it is to live in a well crafted space that has been designed to be very efficient. Tan went on to become an architect in 1996 and has been working in the field of design and construction since. Tan wanted to create a design-build company that can bring together the technical knowledge of design details and aesthetics and construction.  This image shows a lofting plan of a wooden sailboat that Tan and Anne-Marie started building a while back called the Bristol Channel Cutter.  This sailboat embodies all three qualities of beauty, craftsmanship, and efficiency and thus became the inspiration for the name Bristol Built.

Bristol Built was created to build homes that embody beauty, craftsmanship and efficiency for their clients.
