About the Owner

Profile picture of the owner, Ryan Griffin.

Mountain Sky Builders LLC is owned and operated by Ryan Griffin of Saluda, N.C.

    Ryan grew up in Sylva, N.C., where he began working in the construction industry at the age of 16. He spent summers employed as a masonry apprentice installing foundations for homes on Lake Glenville, N.C. After graduating high school in 1991, he helped pay his way through college by operating an entrepreneurial auto detailing business. Ryan went on to obtain multiple higher education degrees in Aerospace and Industrial Engineering. He later earned a Master’s Degree in Project Management while working a full time corporate job.

    His work history includes employment with major corporations like Tyco International, US Airways, The Hartford financial services company, and Bank of America. As a Corporate Workplace Project Manager at Bank of America, Ryan was able to leverage his formal education and his construction knowledge for the build of multiple data centers and the erection of 1 Bryant Park in Manhattan, as well as 1 Bank of America Center in Charlotte. He managed projects for data center builds and refits of multiple high-rise floors in Uptown Charlotte.

    Ryan has always had an entrepreneurial spirit and a passion for fine home building and restoration of quality homes long neglected. As a hobby business, under the name of Mountain Sky Builders, he became a North Carolina licensed General Contractor in January 2008. After conducting countless remodels and restorations (as well as building several luxury, log and craftsman style homes from the ground up) Ryan decided to say farewell to the corporate world. In 2020 he began focusing exclusively on helping customers realize their dreams by building fine luxury homes in Western North Carolina.
