Ben Moomaw has a passion. Stemming from boyhood stories of ghosts, murder, and buried treasure surrounding his grandparents' historic home in Richmond, VA, Ben's passion for historic homes developed. From this passion, coupled with a profound respect for the unparalleled craftsmanship of yesteryear, emerged Wichello General Contracting.
As a boy, visiting his grandparents set the stage early on for his love and respect of the well-built structures of times past. Their home, called Wichello after the owner who had run a tavern there decades before, was built in 1827, and remains shrouded in mystery and legend. Wichello General Contracting was appropriately named in honor of this family home, which remains his inspiration.
Wichello General Contracting employs dedicated people who share Ben's passion in every aspect of remodeling, expanding, and renewing homes. In every concrete footing poured, in every crown moulding installed, their dedication shows.
Wichello is also dedicated to contributing to various charities and supporting different causes.
