The Clevernest Team
Thomas R. McHaffie
Tom founded Clevernest in 2011, after doing much research into businesses that would be a good fit with his experience as a custom home builder in the northern Indianapolis suburbs since 1988. Tom continues to build some of the finest homes in the area. (See www.custombuilder.com). Tom brings those same traits he is known for in the building business, i.e. attention to detail, an ability to create unique looks and designs, innovative systems and processes, and delivering a high quality product at a fair price, to Clevernest.
Tom is a Hoosier born and raised, growing up in Carmel, graduating from Carmel High School, and then Indiana University, with a BS in management and logistics. Tom and his wife Amy have been happily married for 33 years and have 6 kids….” mostly” out of the “nest” at this point! In his free time, Tom is actively involved with his Church - Our Lady of Mt. Carmel, and enjoys hangin’ with the wife and kids, and in the summer - anything to do with water. He also enjoys woodworking, fishing, skiing, reading, and playing guitar.
Joe joined our team in January of 2016. President & co-owner of a successful company committed to reclaiming and rehabilitating area properties that had been let go, Joe's already present commitment to environmental responsibility grew as his company worked to make homes more energy efficient. Using responsibility sourced & environmentally kind materials & remodeling practices, Joe has proven that existing homes can be substantially improved upon with updates like additional insulation & new windows & doors. Joe's extensive knowledge of energy smart products for your home, his knowledge of our products, & his willingness to help our clients get the best service & products for their money make Joe a critical part of our Clevernest team.
Joe and his wife, Kristy, live in Carmel with their three young children. They are active in their church, school activities, and tending their chickens -- yes, chickens! Joe has diverse talents
Stacy has been a part of the Clevernest team since February of 2014. She will serve as the primary point of contact throughout your project, from scheduling your no obligation, in home consultation to making sure the installation is completed to your satisfaction.
Outside of the office, Stacy enjoys strength training with her husband/workout partner, antique shopping, and is active in her church and the Hamilton County Jail Ministry. As a family, Stacy, her husband David and their college-aged daughter also love to hike Indiana's beautiful state parks.
Charlie Wilder is our head installer. He has been installing windows and doors for many years. His attention to detail results in beautiful and professional results. When he's not on the job site, Charlie enjoys hunting, fishing, and camping. He's also a big fan of the Indianapolis Colts. (Pictured here with a homeowner's very interested dog, Claire.)
