The Solluna Team
Wayne Jeansonne, Founder and President
A Graduate Master Builder, Wayne was building green homes long before it was the cool thing to do. When Wayne started Solluna Builders in 2002, his goal was to build comfortable, healthy, high-performance homes. He is recognized for his knowledge, years of experience, and ongoing efforts to mentor the industry to a more sustainable path and to protect our quality of life.
Wayne led the Green Building program at American YouthWorks beginning in 1999. It was on-the-job training for students and a busy R&D center for new, exciting materials and techniques.
A popular speaker and consultant, Wayne uses his experience as a Realtor to help you choose features and materials that increase the value of your property. Choose Solluna Builders, and you’ll enjoy his practical, common-sense approach.
Wayne is an avid motorcyclist, photographer, and birder. He enjoys camping and hiking.
