Many Clemson graduates find it hard to leave those hills behind after receiving their diplomas, but Jarrett Smith and Brad Webb keep finding ways to stay connected.
For one thing, they found a home for the headquarters of Smith & Webb – their residential design-build firm – in Patrick Square, Clemson’s first traditional neighborhood development. After watching Clemson continue to grow from this vantage point, Brad decided it was the perfect place to put down roots with his young family, and the company built a home for him in Patrick Square, too.
Over the last few years, Smith & Webb has had an opportunity to work on a project with an intriguing connection to their alma mater. There is a house in the city of Clemson, built in the early 1980s by R.C. Edwards, a former president of the university, that is a replica of the house in which the sitting president resides during his tenure. The house was purchased in 2015 by a Clemson alum, and Smith & Webb were contracted to bring the interior up to date. The home was sold again in late 2016, and Jarrett and Brad were given another opportunity to work their magic on the home’s exterior.
Smith & Webb has completed a number of beautiful homes from the Upstate to the Midlands, last year entering four homes into the HBA of Greenville’s Bridge Awards, which recognizes the best craftsmanship and professionalism in the residential construction industry. Those four homes garnered Smith & Webb five awards, including Best Exterior and Best Kitchen.
Friends since their fraternity days, Jarrett and Brad celebrated their fourth anniversary as business partners earlier this year. Their complementary skill sets, shared work ethic, and commitment to customizing each plan to suit the wants and needs of the client brought them early success, and they have continued to build on that momentum.
“We’ve seen a lot of growth this year,” says Laurel Shell, office manager. “We’re really finding our place in the Upstate market.”
Outside of work, Jarrett and Brad stay busy with the flurry of activity that comes with parenting little girls – between them they have five daughters – and spending time with their wives, Sara and Kayla, who also happen to be childhood friends.
