Our Team


  Lee Arsenault

 “Lee Arsenault, here. Because I feel so strongly about the team of lead professionals who work with me, I want to take a moment to introduce them to you personally. When you choose New Leaf Construction to handle your project, you will come to know at least one of these gentlemen quite well. Let me be clear. I respect and trust each one of them. They all have extensive backgrounds in residential construction. Without question, they know their stuff. But more than that, I have known each one of them for years. I have seen them in action.


I asked each one of them to join our team based on character, honor and willingness to take personal responsibility for their actions. When any one of them speaks to you, that person will be speaking for me. It is a great privilege to have these gentlemen on my team. I enjoy working with them, and I know you will too.


Scott Blunck heads up our remodeling division. More than any other, Scott’s work is driven by referrals from previous clients – a good portion of it being repeat engagements with the same client. I’m not sure we could give you a better idea about Scott’s capability than to say Scott’s clients want him back!


If your interest is in making improvements to your present home, you’ll come to know Scott well. Trust me, he is a genuine expert in construction and project management. You will be in safe hands with Scott. They don’t come any better!


Rex Benedict is our principal custom home builder. I promise your dream of a special new home built exactly to your specifications will be in expert and caring hands with Rex. He will build your custom home with the same passion and attention to detail he used to fly helicopters and manage sophisticated engineering and research operations in the Navy.


Meticulous and tenacious are words crafted with Rex in mind. The combination bodes well for you.


Paul Sturney is our master builder managing our community development work with elacora, building luxury-level, semi-custom homes in the best master planned residential communities in northeast Florida.  Check out elacora. You’ll like what you find.  They checked out Paul and discovered there isn’t much in new home construction that he hasn’t done, and done well.


And if what we build for them is what would make you happy, you’ll come to love Paul, as we all do!

The New Leaf Team


It is a great privilege to have these people on our team, because without question, they know their stuff.
