Company History

In 1966 Bill Mytty and his wife Sandy started a construction company building homes in and around Missoula . The company got a huge jump when Bill and Sandy got a contract to build a large number of HUD subsidized homes near Missoula . They then started to build higher end homes and built a reputation as quality builders under the name of Quality Construction Co. in Missoula . They went from building homes for several years to focusing more on commercial construction.

Bill and Sandy 's three children, Kevin, Kelly and Kory joined the family construction business as they grew to be adults. Missoula 's residential construction business started to pick up in the late 1980's and Kevin Mytty showed a great interest in starting to build homes again. The Mytty's started Shelter West, Inc. in 1989. Having the commercial and residential knowledge in construction, the Mytty's started to build homes again. Already having the reputation of being premier builders, it just seemed to be a great addition to the family business. Shelter West Construction, Inc. has gone on to build many homes in the Missoula and surrounding areas. They were proud to enter several award winning homes in Missoula 's “Parade of Homes.
