Whitehead Construction has been making dreams come true since 1962. Entrepreneur Gary Whitehead started the 47-year old company upon graduation from the University of Texas. The company operated under Gary’s guidance until this past March, when native Odessan and 18-year veteran of the company David McGuire purchased the successful construction company.

David, who in his early career was a housing framer, went on to obtain architectural skills, says Don Stringer, marketing director. “With David’s flare for creativity also comes knowledge of cutting-edge technology, such as the foam insulation which Whitehead Construction is using.”

This foam insulation completely seals the home so that little if any air infiltration can occur. The use of the foam insulation came about due to the desire of the company to deliver an “ENERGY STAR rated home.” However, much more than foam insulation is involved in obtaining the coveted “ENERGY STAR rating.”

The superior windows which Whitehead Construction uses have low-e film permeated into the glass as well as argon gas between the two panes of glass. A high energy-efficient RHEEM heating and cooling unit and many hours of education make this possible.

“Our homes meet or exceed the ENERGY STAR requirements,” Don says. “In short, our homes are among the most energy-efficient being built.”

Whitehead Construction currently has two subdivisions to build your dream home in. The Vista Crest Addition, located off the 2300 block of Rocky Lane, offers upscale low-maintenance Court Yard Homes.

“The Court Yard homes have high ceilings, crown molding, built-in appliances, luxury baths, and much more,” Don says, “and in our North Park Addition we offer both production homes and custom homes.”

Whitehead’s production line of homes have 18 different floor plans, which start at 1620 square feet at a price of $145,800 and go up to 3586 square feet for $258,195.

“We will be moving into a new model home at 9100 Holiday Drive in early October,” Don says. “This is really exciting for us because the home we are setting up for showcase is a brand new plan with a brand new look. We invite everybody to come see us at 9100 Holiday Drive in Odessa.”

“Though the housing market dropped off some last year, our local market is rebounding,” Don adds. “At Whitehead Construction we are committed to our customers as well as to excellence in construction. We’ve been here for 47 years, and we will be here for 47 more.”

Whitehead Construction is a company of people who all know that all good comes from GOD and that it is His will that we have had success, and we give Him all the glory. Thank you, Permian Basin, for the privilege to serve you.
