Joel Godwin, of Godwin General Contractors, has been actively involved in the construction business for over 30 years. He began in the early 1980's, working for a bridge construction company in Iowa and the southern United States. After this, he spent 15 years building custom homes and commercial buildings in the Des Moines and Ankeny area. Now, he is specializing in recreational, commercial, and agricultural structures in the greater Polk County and South Central, Iowa area.

Bob Watts is a sales associate for Godwin General Contractors. Bob has over 40 years of experience in marketing grain storage and crop conditioning equipment, in addition to rural and light commercial buildings, both post frame and all steel. He has spent the previous 12 years representing an area post frame builder out of Carlisle, Iowa.

With over 30 years of experience in the construction industry along with competitive pricing, Godwin General Contractors assures you we will design and provide a building that best fits your needs.

We can offer you many advantages by choosing a Lester building system. We feel that the Lester building is the highest quality building on the market. We provide an aesthetically pleasing yet cost effective building that we are confident in and believe you will be too. Regarding building detail, the options for a buyer are endless. Buyers have the ability to choose everything from doors and windows, to color and style of trim. Our prices are updated monthly to maintain the most current supply costs. Materials from the manufacturer also come pre-cut, allowing crews to reach a finished product in less time than our competitors.

For the customer looking to have a building constructed quickly and efficiently, Lester offers many pre-engineered wood frame structures to choose from. However, our organization also takes pride in allowing complete customer control from building design, dimension, and color, to actually making a floor plan.
