MSB was founded by Matthew Shannon-Browne.  Matt is West Virginia born and Mount Pleasant, Washington, D.C., raised.  He attended the Washington Free School, the Maharishi School, and the Field School, before graduating from Warren County High School in Front Royal, Va., during a brief stint outside of the city.  

Matt comes by his construction knowledge through genetics and 17+ years of experience. His father, Charlie Browne, is a general contractor and principal in Browne Brothers, which has built hundreds of homes in the region for EYA, Coscan Brookfield Homes, Christopher Companies, and other smaller builders. Matt began working with Browne Brothers in 1995 and went on to become a partner in the company, where he supervised the framing, exterior trim, and window/door installation for hundreds of upscale homes in and around Washington. 

As the production framing business slowed in 2006, Matt left Browne Brothers to begin a remodeling company. He has worked individually and with teams of licensed contractors and designers since that time, starting MSB Design Build LLC in 2008.

Rebecca Shannon (mom) provides backup support in marketing communications and project administration for MSB.

As a family owned and operated company, we bring honesty and quality to a business that often suffers from a dearth of both. We know our clients are our best references, so we're only happy when you're happy.
