The “Don and Todd” Story

The brothers Pohlig, Todd and Don, bring to life the great American tale of “local boys make good.”  Both graduated from Monsignor Bonner High School, with Todd joining the Army upon graduation from Villanova University.  Don, the younger, had such a hunger to work that he went to work with John Falcone’s house framing company on the day of his high school graduation (instead of going to the ceremony!)  He soon started his own framing company and built challenging contemporary houses instead of the “boxes” of that day.  Todd dreamed up Pohlig Builders when he was in the Army, returned home and started the company in late 1974.  Read the full story>>
