Winna Denning was born in Anchorage, Alaska in 1955 while her father was stationed at Elmendorf Air Force Base. Encouraged as a youngster by her father that she could do anything she set her mind to, she learned at that young age not to let being a woman stand in her way.
She began college as an art major and used her experience to work and design watches for three major watch companies before marrying and raising three incredible daughters: Grace, Margaret, and Angela.
In 1995, she began building homes in the Thompson's Station and Spring Hill area with McLeod Custom Home Builders. She was often referred to as the "perfectionist" in the process, planning each detail of a client's home to their liking and being committed to the project's success. She built in subdivisions including Cameron Farms, Cherry Grove, Spring Hill Place, Crowne Pointe, Benevento, Shannon Glen, Tollgate Village, and McLemore Farms, as well as on land owned by homeowners.
Throughout her career, her strong eye for detail in design has been her outstanding quality clients seek in a builder. Many of the homes entered in the Home Builders Showcase of Homes (the Oscars of the home building industry) won awards for Best Craftsmanship. It's no wonder, considering the amount she invests in each homeowner's project.
For four years, Winna Denning has been an integral part of Grove Park Construction, LLC, a Brentwood-based luxury home building firm. In 2014, she made the decision to venture out on her own again to build custom homes with her own clients.
Winna is also passionate about giving back to her community. For decades, she has been heavily involved in Daughters of the American Revolution, a national non-profit, non-political organization that seeks to preserve American history through the betterment of American education. She is also involved in giving financially and with her time to various other non-profit and community service organizations.
