Design & Build
Innovative Solutions

First Galena is a family owned business that started in 1980 as a real estate, architecture and home building company. We then expanded in 1990 to include modular and panelized construction. The architect and designer of First Galena have created a few specialty divisions which include custom sun rooms and golf studios. The vacation rental home division was created in 2010 to give our clients and guests the opportunity to stay in one of our homes.

We hired Deb Studtman of First Galena Corp. as our architect/builder for our lake house. She was a delight to work with from beginning to end and had so many wonderful ideas that we incorporated into the design of the home.

First Galena created modular golf performance studios to allow golfers to improve their games year round, and to allow golf courses to add another asset to their facility.  These modular studios can be delivered “turn-key” with all the latest technology to a golf facility, driving range, business, or the back yard of an avid golfer.
