Your Dream Home Built

We provide our customers with a tailored home building experience under
our guiding principles of safety, quality, community, and family.

Townsley Construction

Townsley Construction is a family-owned custom home builder in Central Florida. Owners Joshua and Ann McDermott have more than 30 years of combined construction experience, and their partnership and broad knowledge of the construction trade allows them to deliver a customer experience and finished project that is best in class.

The company was named after the street on which three generations of McDermott’s grew up. That neighborhood provided comfort and community for the people who lived there, and those values are reflected in our company.

Our process is designed to meet your needs. We coordinate every step of your home building process from design to completion. We can help you build a custom home from the ground up, or you can select one of our Townsley Signature Series designs, which can also be adapted to your specifications. We can build on a lot you have already selected, or choose one of our premier lots to build on.
Together we can build anything, we love what we do, and we will create a home that you love too.

Values & Process

Safety. Quality. Community. Family.

Josh McDermott

Josh grew up surrounded by the construction industry. He spent his summers during high school and college laying sod, tiling floors, framing houses, and managing a small construction services business of his own. After graduating with a Bachelor's degree in Construction Management from the University of North Florida, he spent nearly 15 years in commercial and heavy civil construction, ultimately leading large teams on the most complex projects for the nation's largest bridge builder. He has won awards and accolades from Engineering News- Record, Design Build Institute of America, American Public Works Association, and Roads and Bridges, among others. Josh thrives on managing the moving parts of design, budget, schedule, safety, and quality while building lasting relationships and structures.

Ann McDermott

Ann has spent more than a decade constructing custom residential homes in the Central Florida area and more than five years in heavy civil construction. Hard work and critical thinking were lessons that her father instilled in her at a young age - she wasn't allowed to drive until she could change the tires and oil in her old 1972 International Scout by herself. She carries those lessons with her to this day, and her determination, expertise, and relationships with cities, counties and subcontractors makes her invaluable to your home building experience. Ann keeps track of every detail to ensure your experience is seamless and will keep you smiling along the way.
