About the Owner

Dave Mannion, owner of DCM Remodeling Associates

Dave Mannion has lived and worked in the Deerfield Valley for over 10 years and brings a wealth of experience to his business. After returning to Vermont in 2000, he worked for a local timberframe company and gained a strong appreciation for the tight construction, energy efficiency, elegant lines, and open layout of post and beam homes. Dave went on to work for several property maintenance companies and gained experience managing projects, overseeing subcontractors, and working with condo owners.

A jack-of-all-trades, Dave also spent a season as a lift mechanic at Mount Snow and led mountain bike tours during a summer season at the mountain. However, his real passion has always been building, remodeling, and fine carpentry. In 2003 Dave established Closet Creations, a business specializing in custom closets, and this venture grew into DCM Remodeling Associates, which handles smaller projects as well as full remodels. Although closet organizers are still very much part of Dave's repertoire, DCM Remodeling has allowed him to better utilize his many skills, from trim carpentry and wainscoting to cabinets and flooring to windows and doors.

Dave lives in East Dover with his wife and young daughter. When he's not running his business, he can be found kayaking, biking, reading books about extreme sports, and chipping away at the ever-present "honey-do" list.
