Joedy Sharpe, with his company Joedy Sharpe Construction Company, is continuing the family legacy in
building industry. My great grandfather and grandfather were craftsmen who perfected the art of old fashion
carpentry in homebuilding and home renovation. My grandfather shared with me the elements of fine
carpentry. My inheritance is preservation of the artisan quality of fine carpentry. My legacy is the continuation
of the family tradition in homebuilding.
THE Mission for Joedy Sharpe Construction Company is to produce the artisan quality home, based on
superior designs and innovative technology with conscientious service during and after the construction
process. Tradition plus innovation and quality formed the building blocks in my company.
While attending Centre College in Danville, Kentucky I labored as a carpenter’s assistant at the now defunct
Bourbon Lumber Company in Paris, Kentucky. This experience with my grandfather's tutoring provided
additional instruction in the fundamentals of fine carpentry and the basics of homebuilding. Upon graduation
from Centre I enjoyed a brief stint in the field of education. However, I never strayed from construction.
During summer breaks I continued expanding my building background by working at a variety of construction
1974 was the pivotal year. That year I built my first duplex. After building several duplexes, I undertook the
construction of a single family home. Thereafter, homebuilding became the career of choice.
March of 1977 Joedy Sharpe Construction Company was incorporated. This business entity was formed with
the objective of engaging in homebuilding, remodeling and land development.
“Grow our business with a plan, plan for and seize opportunity.”
My company, Joedy Sharpe Construction Company, takes great pride in having achieved recognition in our
community for having built and continuing to build custom homes at attainable prices. These homes have
differed in size, been built in a variety of neighborhoods and served the needs of a diverse group of people
in the Danville and Boyle County community.
We continue to embrace our commitment to provide home ownership opportunities for the majority of citizens
in Danville and Boyle County. Our five developments have multiple lot sizes at varying market prices. Within
this framework there is a home size and lot price for most family budgets.
