Our story

We are Milton Construction Company, LLC

Milton Construction Company has a long history in the Appomattox area. In the late 1970’s, Dick Bass and Ken Milton started Bass & Milton Construction Company. Bass & Milton built custom homes for over 30 years and developed a first-class reputation as one of the best home builders in the area.

In 2010, Ken Milton’s son, Todd, started Milton Construction Company. For the last three years, Milton Construction has been voted the area’s Best Home Builder by the readers of the Time-Virginian — largely owing to the long lasting reputation developed by Bass & Milton. In recent years, Milton Construction begun to focus more on renovation work providing a full array of home remodeling services including additions, kitchen remodeling, bathroom remodeling, finished basements, and decks.

How We Work

When you call us with your renovation ideas, our primary aim is to listen well and ask questions to help us understand your desired results. 

If it becomes evident that Milton Construction would be a good fit for completing your project, we will then enter the design phase. During this phase, we work with you to finalize details for your project, after which we will present you with plans and a firm price proposal for the work.

We strive to do as much of the planning work as possible up front, so that once the job is started it can run along smoothly and be completed in a timely manner with as few delays as possible.

We would be glad to listen to your ideas, answer your questions, and explain to you our design process and how we work.

Meet The team

The Milton Construction Team is comprised of Todd Milton, Tom Kellogg, Domenic Grutz, and Cory Hodges. Let us be your home remodeling and custom home contractor. We specialize in custom home building, room additions, kitchen remodeling, bath remodeling, and decks.

Todd is the Owner of Milton Construction. He grew up working summers with his Dad and gained a familiarity with all things associated with construction. He is a graduate of Radford University (1996 – BS Psychology) and spent several years working in Radford after graduation, where, after purchasing a house built in 1893, his interest in renovation work was re-kindled.

In 2006, he moved with his family back to the Appomattox area to pursue a career as a contractor. He worked with Bass & Milton for a few years as a carpenter and project manager before starting Milton Construction in 2010.

While he still very much enjoys working on the jobs with the guys, most of his time is spent meeting new customers, organizing the jobs, and other necessary tasks that come with running a business. Todd enjoys living in Appomattox with his wife and three great kids. His hobbies include reading good books, gardening, and hiking.

Tom has been married for twenty-six years to his high school sweetheart. He loves animals and the outdoors—especially enjoying hunting, fishing, and four-wheeling. He has been working in construction for over thirty years, both commercial and residential but he prefers residential as it gives him more opportunities to be creative and do more unique work for homeowners.

He specializes in kitchen and bathroom remodeling, including cabinet installation, tile flooring, backsplashes, and showers. He is also rather proficient at drywall and painting. He is well rounded in all aspects of building construction from foundations to roofing and has been a great addition to the Milton Construction Team since 2014.

Domenic has been a valuable member of the Milton Construction crew for the past seven years. He grew up traveling overseas and finally transplanted to central Virginia from Manassas twelve years ago.

Domenic was originally trained as a cabinet maker before transitioning into remodeling. His skills as a carpenter are well rounded and versatile. He enjoys living in the area with his wife and four children.

Cory is a carpenter with Milton Construction. Born and raised in Appomattox County, Cory’s interest in woodworking began in middle school. He has always enjoyed discovering how things work, problem-solving, and designing creative solutions. Throughout middle and high school, Cory acquired skills in both woodworking and mechanics.

Together with his father, he built a reproduction General Store, along with a small woodworking shop where he further developed his craft. He also participated in numerous competitions and skill-based events as a part of Future Farmers of America (FFA).

After graduating from Appomattox County High School in 2014, he began working with Milton Construction. He is newly married to his wonderful wife, Dani. Together they enjoy antiquing, bluegrass music, working the family beef cattle farm, and beekeeping.
