Gerry Biography

Gerry Trottier the owner and founder of Southwynn Homes Ltd. learned the business through the school of hard knocks. The Trottier family starting with Gerry’s great, great grandfather were all involved in the construction business. His Father, grandfather, and uncles built barns, silos, bridges, apartments, and house, and the table talk (about construction) during meals and at family gatherings was always enthusiastically absorbed by Gerry. His dad, started Gerry at the age of 10, working weekends, and during summer holidays. He was charged with the responsibility of picking up garbage, sorting lumber and salvaging material. All fallen nails were retrieved and sorted, and the bent nails straightened. At the age of thirteen, Gerry began using hand tools cutting and nailing material as directed. At the age of fifteen, Gerry began laying out walls and custom cutting rafters for site framing. At seventeen Gerry was a crew chief and in charge of a framing crew. By the age of 18, Gerry had designed his first house and was foreman for its construction. Gerry’s dad then left the business in pursuit of a more reliable career and encouraged Gerry to do the same.
