Builders, Innovators, and Dreamers.
4th Dimension Development was founded by Brian Hawthorne, John Hawthorne, and Kevin Gitter. Inspired by Brian and Kevin in 2015 while traveling eastern Europe.
After visiting some of Earth’s most beautiful places, world travelers Brian and Kevin came home to the Woodward corridor with a renewed commitment to their design work, bringing influences from their travels to every project. They have a passion for expertly infusing hints of unique style and function from around the world into their work.
The mission was simple; create a construction company that would provide them with creativity, flexibility and gratitude while still allowing them to maintain their interests in travel. Leaning on their general contracting and finished carpentry backgrounds, they bought their first home in Ferndale and 4th Dimension Development was born.
Over the past seven years, 4D2 has grown a completely self-funded operation, started by builders and carpenters into its own vision of a high-quality construction company. They develop properties and rebuild homes with experienced craftsmen, the highest quality standards all with attractive designs. 4D2 only builds and renovates homes that they would want to live in.
What make 4D2 unique is that it also offers a variety of financing options and living arrangement solutions to help distressed property owners. Experience a different kind of construction company with 4th Dimension Development.
