About US

Recognizing the need for energy-efficient homes in Southwest Florida, David Wishtischin made the bold decision to form a home-building construction company serving the Cape Coral area. Custom home builders were in short supply at the height of an economic recession. But when most owners in the construction industry were backpedaling, David was looking forward. Together with the services of an experienced building scientist, David put his extensive construction knowledge and experience to work at his new house construction company in Cape Coral and began to develop some of the area’s most energy-efficient concepts in custom homebuilding and launched the highly-rated Ravenwood Homes.

In 2013, as his reputation as a custom home builder in Cape Coral grew and spread from Boca Grande to Bonita Springs and beyond, David saw a lack of quality and choice in the more modestly priced home market. Ergo, Gulf Living Homes came to be. Gulf Living Homes offer new house construction in the Cape Coral area featuring popular smaller floorplan options that are energy efficient and affordable, with long-lasting value and quality.

The Ravenwood Homes / Gulf Living Homes team have been working together for more than 12 years, and have become some of the most trusted custom home builders in Cape Coral and throughout Southwest Florida. The majority of their carefully selected subcontractors have consistently provided Ravenwood Homes / Gulf Living Homes their professional services since the first Ravenwood Home was built in 2009. The longevity of such relationships and ensuing trust is another indicator of a commitment to providing consistent high-quality workmanship for lasting value for homebuyers that can only be found in the best custom home builders in Cape Coral. For a new house construction company you can trust, contact Ravenwood Homes today.


A Husband & Wife In it For Life

In 2012, David’s wife Brittany joined the team as Executive Vice President and head of Sales and Marketing. Pairing Brittany’s background in design and sales with David’s 21 years of construction experience has proven that their partnership is as successful in business as it is in life.

For example, they realized that the quality of construction when it came to more modest homes was lacking. That led them to create Gulf Living Homes, which builds efficient, smaller homes that offer the larger outdoor living spaces and upscale features typically reserved for much more expensive homes. Now any homeowner can enjoy the Southwest Florida lifestyle, no matter their budget.

When David and Brittany aren’t at work together, they enjoy spending time with their three children: David, Jackson, and Charlee. David holds an undergraduate Science degree from the University of Connecticut and attended the Graduate School of Business at the University of Massachusetts. Brittany graduated from Blue Cliff College.
