Bo Wilson

Bo has personally been involved in building construction through the family business since the mid-seventies during school and summer vacations. The primary work consisted of projects on the Main Line of Philadelphia, the Eastern Shore of Maryland and in the city of Dover, Delaware and in those towns the passion for building things began.

Bo has been involved in the residential construction business full time since 1984. After securing an unrestricted Massachusetts Construction Supervisors license in 1986, the Wilson Company began operations as a separate entity and became incorporated in 1995. Bo has been a Massachusetts Registered Home Improvement Contractor on Nantucket since the program’s inception. We are members of the Better Business Bureau and the Nantucket Builders Association since 2001 and 1999 respectively.

Bo is an avid outdoor sportsman and enjoys skiing and fly fishing in his spare time. He lives on Nantucket with his wife, four children and two dogs.

John Schafer

John has been interested in building things since he spent his summer vacations in high school and college working for various Nantucket framing contractors. John is a graduate of the Ohio State University with a Bachelors of Science in Finance and The Capital University School of Law with a Juris Doctor. After a stint in the Public Defenders office, John met his wife on a Nantucket vacation and they soon moved to the Island where John became a licensed Construction Supervisor and changed careers to residential building. After a successful run of home building on Nantucket, John moved his family to Stowe, Vermont and continued to build some extraordinary mountain homes.  John joined the Wilson Company in 2013 and brings vast experience as a lawyer, home builder, project manager and master carpenter to the Wilson Company team.

John enjoys golf, skiing, and any type of offshore fishing and is an avid musician when he can find the time. John lives in Stowe Vermont, with his wife, three children and two golden retrievers.
