Joseph Holt Came to America from his homeland of Wales in June of 1904, at the young age of 23.
A Finish carpenter by trade, he immigrated to Tacoma, Washington with his beautiful bride Mary and began building new homes with attention to detail.
He refused to sacrifice quality or service for any reason. He soon gained the reputation as a man of his word and a builder of a fine home.
For the next 2 decades, Holt Construction, continued to build a better home with a major emphasis on building a strong relationship with his clients. Joseph Holt knew that no one job made a company, relationships do.
By October of 1929, Holt Construction was building eight lakefront properties for the prominent families of Tacoma. Each house was at a different stage of completion when on October 29, 1929 the stock market crashed and the beginning of the Great Depression was upon America.
