Meet the Team


Curtis Harwell

Owner & President

I was born and raised in Plant City, Florida.   From the time I learned to walk I worked on the farm with my Dad growing everything from collard greens to peas to okra.  You name it, we grew it. 

During my high school years my days started at the Farmers Market prior to going to my every day classes. After graduation I worked at Fleetwood Homes and GE Capital learning the modular home industry. It had always been in my heart to own my own business. While working in these industries I decided it was time. My first business was Fine Line Home Repairs doing any and all types of remodeling. After owning this business for several years, I decided it was time to get my construction license and start building. I started classes and in 2005 at the age of 38 I took my state exam and obtained my Certified Residential Contractor License. It was this same year my wife and I started C. Harwell Construction, Inc. 

In 2016, I decided to go back to school to become a Certified Building Contractor in an effort to take on more commercial opportunities. At C. Harwell Construction, Inc., we take pride in the fact that our company is licensed and insured. We guarantee that anyone working for us on your project is licensed, insured and competent to service your needs. C. Harwell Construction, Inc. has been in operation for 15 years. We have built many new custom homes, remodeled many existing homes and in turn built many wonderful relationships in the process. Our satisfied customers become our best advertising.

Deanna Harwell

Co-Owner & Vice President

I was born and raised in Plant City, Florida. I married Curtis in 1987, together we have two beautiful girls, Brittany and Amber. I have been with Curtis since we were young teenagers and watched him learn the construction industry from the ground up. We supported him through his schooling and testing for his Florida Residential Contractor license and then when he decided to go back to school and test for his Florida Building Contractor license. 

In our early 50’s we took on the best job of our lives when we became Paw-Paw and Yaya to our first grandchild, Carter. Though I am the Vice-President of C. Harwell Construction, Inc., I am not involved with the day to day activities of the business.  My most important duties include being the cornerstone for Curtis.

Becky Napper


I was also born and raised in Plant City, Florida. I am Deanna’s sister and Curtis’ sister-in-law. I began working for Curtis in 2013.

My husband and I had twin boys in 2012 and I did not want to return to my full-time job at the phone company. There was a lot of God’s hand in my going to work for C. Harwell Construction, Inc. I needed a job and Curtis needed a secretary.  I started as part-time, but Curtis and Deanna’s business has truly been blessed and I have been afforded the opportunity to work more. I have learned the construction industry slowly, but surely with Curtis’ help.  When you call C. Harwell Construction, Inc. I will be there to help! I may not always know the answers, but I will always know how to find the right one for you!
