Curt Tunnell was born and raised in Central Texas and his family still has deep roots in Blanket where the headquarters of Tunnell Construction is housed. After a quick jaunt up the corporate ladder of Wal Mart, Curt decided to take things back to his roots and open a construction company in his hometown.
He’ll be the first to tell you he wasn’t well versed in the world of construction but he’ll also be the first to tell you that opening this company wasn’t just about fixing homes and installing roofs – he had a bigger purpose in mind, a kinder one. Curt and Jamie have been heavily involved in foster care agencies since early in their marriage. As a young couple at age 22 with two children of their own, they welcomed 5 (yes, I said FIVE) foster children into their home. This kindness and compassion is in Curt’s nature and most will say it comes from his mother whom he lost at the young age of 21. Tunnell Construction was opened as a way to fund and pour into the lives of the Foster Agency he opened with Brent and Kenneth Hagood, Caring Hearts for Children.
While life has evolved and Tunnell Construction has grown, one thing has remained the same – the heart behind the business. Curt and the Tunnell crew are in the business of rebuilding homes and in the heart of rebuilding lives. They know each nail that’s driven and each bid that’s sent out has greater purpose.
Personally, Curt enjoys traveling with his wife, Jamie, and sons, Brayson and Hayden, and his daughter’s Stella Grace and Savannah Faith. They love spending tons of time outside hunting, fishing, participating in sports, and enjoying God’s creation.
