Glenn Farrell has always had a passion for woodworking, furniture making and building beautiful homes.
Back in the early 80’s, Glenn was a Certified Public Accountant working in Boston. He didn’t feel fulfilled and needed more of a challenge, so in 1985 he moved to Maine and started YFI Custom Homes. Later he created YFI Millworks, the cabinet shop that works hand in hand with YFI Custom Homes by building the interiors of the homes that make each client’s home special and unique.
Glenn has a passion for skiing and early on he realized that his career choice of accounting was an obstacle to pursuing his enthusiasm for skiing. His love of skiing has led him to build two custom homes in Stowe, Vermont.
Glenn credits his parents for giving him his start in building. Fortunately for Glenn, his parents bought a riverfront lot right next door to their home in Cape Neddick, Maine. When they decided to build a home on this property, Glenn jumped at the chance to take on the project. That was 1985 and it’s been nonstop ever since.
YFI consistently seeks out the best subcontractors in each field and works closely as a team to give our clients the best possible home. We have been collaborating together for over 20 years.
It’s all about relationships. Many of Glenn’s projects have come from word of mouth and many have become repeat customers and good friends.
