Jasper Builders, Inc.
Truly local, truly custom. If you are looking for an intimate Design-Build experience in the Lake Norman area, then you are looking for Jasper Builders. Serving the Lake Norman area since 1999, Jasper Builders has specialized in new construction, renovations, and outdoor living spaces. With more than 30 years of experience, President Sean Gallagher has built a strong reputation with both clients and industry experts in the area.
In 2017, at their annual planning meeting, Sean asked the team what was their “wildly important goal”? What was the one thing Jasper could focus on to have the biggest benefit for clients, team members and trade partners. The collective answer was that all clients should have the exact same process and experience. That is when we shifted our focus to Design Build clients. We identified that we could best serve luxury home buyers that wanted a home designed specifically for them and their lot. You will hear the phrase “best and highest” a lot around Jasper, since that is our commitment to our clients.
As Sean says, “Our clients are one of a kind and so are the homes we build with them. When you develop a team for a client, with an architect, a designer, and a builder, you are giving the client the best chance for a successful build.” And at Jasper, everyone is truly part of the team.
Meet the Team
Sean grew up in the construction business in upstate New York. He earned a degree in math and physics at Oswego State University. As a college student, he remodeled kitchens and baths developing a heart for quality construction as well as an eye for a job well done. Having swung a hammer Sean has a strong passion for the guys that work in the field.
Having gained valuable experience as a trim carpenter, a framer, and then as a superintendent for a national home builder, Sean launched Jasper Builders in 1999 after settling his family in the Lake Norman area. He has built custom homes in communities including The Point, The Farms, and Northview Harbour, but his favorite homes are built on undeveloped lots that require vision beyond a square box.
Sean attributes his success to a commitment to high quality and strong communication. From walking the lot to the final walk-through, Sean takes his customers through every step of the home building process.
Sean serves as President for the Lake Norman Home Builders Association and as Chairman for his National Home Builders Association 20 Club. Sean loves the outdoors and is a passionate sportsman. He is married to Mimi Gallagher, and is the father of 3 – Sean Jr., Michiko, and Zachary. Most days you will see Sean traveling with his 4-legged assistants Bailey, a mixed breed hound, and Seamus, a GSP.
Terri was Jasper Builders original Office Manager from 2006-2009. She left for a few years but rejoined the team in 2016 and it’s as if she never left. In the spring of 2019, she was promoted to VP of Operations.
Terri makes sure the office runs smoothly and serves as the initial point of contact for customers. She oversees the selection process for customers and ensures all decisions are made in a timely manner and that all documents associated with this process are up to date in Buildertrend (the company’s construction management program). Terri also keeps Buildertrend up to date so that employees, customers, subs and vendors always have the most current and pertinent information available to them.
In her spare time, Terri enjoys spending time with family and friends whether it’s playing tennis, exploring local parks, boating on Lake Norman, rooting for The Panthers and The Fighting Irish or just hanging out with her fur baby, Ginger.

Dave was born and raised in the Hudson Valley area of New York. He was introduced to the construction industry during high school summers where he grew to love the framing aspect of home building. He attended SUNY Cortland and continued to work in the construction field. He moved to North Carolina in 2000 to pursue his career in the Lake Norman area and ran his own framing business from 2007 to 2022.
He joined the Jasper Builders Team in April of 2022 as our Field Superintendent. His more than 20 years of experience in construction makes him a wonderful asset. Our customers are in great hands thanks to his attention to detail, willingness to do whatever is needed, and ability to recognize and find solutions to any challenges that arise during the course of their project.
In his spare time, he enjoys being with family and friends whether it’s watching a movie at home, taking a trip to the beach, or going on a drive to the mountains. Dave met his wife, Jenn, a month after moving to North Carolina and he feels like he’s the luckiest man alive. They were blessed to have their son Baker in 2014 and he continues to amaze them. There is never a dull moment with him whether it is observing him learn something new or just getting to see things from his perspective.
