TANEN HOMES HISTORY
The Tanen Construction Company was formed in the mid 1950’s. Under the direction of the Tanen brothers, Nathan and Melvin, founded the company on the principles of quality, value and personal attention to detail and worked tirelessly to uphold these principals. They personally oversaw every detail of their projects from site development to the design and construction of the homes. Our size has grown, but our work ethic remains the same. Our tradition of excellence continues today as Harry Tanen the owner and president personally continues to oversee construction. He, like the founders of Tanen Homes, is a “hands on” builder who learned his craft from the ground up. As a teenager he worked in the field. Later, he graduated with honors from Florida International University School of Construction Management. Since Harry formed Tanco Construction Co., Inc. in 1981, he has built numerous custom homes in Wellington the city of Atlantis, Royal Palm Beach, West Palm Beach, Jupiter Farms, Palm Beach Gardens, Delray Beach and Boca Raton.
