Salty Dog Properties, Inc was founded August of 1998 by Tom Lumsden. After going through the hassles of building a waterfront vacation home away from home, Tom saw a need for a company that would provide turn key custom homes construction in the northern neck and middle peninsula of Virginia, with the goal of providing cost effective waterfront vacation and retirement homes, with minimal hassle. Tom’s background in operations and project management in the technology industry made his transition in 2002 to focus full time on Salty Dog Properties, an easy one. After years of turnkey projects that included house and land the word spread about the true craftsmanship Salty Dog Properties was providing. Salty Dog Properties started to provide Custom home construction for land owners. This has become a big part Salty Dog Properties core business.
