Tim is a licensed General Contractor (#74498) and the owner and CEO of Steele’s Construction, Steele’s Design Studio and Opulence By Steele. Tim Steele is a proud veteran of the US Navy. After a successful career in manufacturing management at Honeywell Aerospace and Leviton Manufacturing and business development for an international carbide manufacturer, Tim decided to return to his lifelong passion of building & construction.
Tim extended his business plan by opening Opulence By Steele which was voted Catawba County’s Finest Home Interiors Store 2015. After taking some time to focus intensely on our construction and design businesses, we are pleased to announce we have now found the time, energy and exciting new brand partners to re-create Opulence By Steele… and better than ever we might add. We have moved to our amazing new location, 375 Main Ave. NE, Hickory, NC 28601. Our construction headquarters, design studio and Opulence By Steele boutique are now all under one roof.
Opulence By Steele’s main focus is, as always, on furniture, complete with our own Opulence By Steele furniture lines available soon!!! We still have the candles, throws, lighting, table books, jewelry and accessories our customers have come to expect. We now also carry ShepGear active lifestyle gear founded by Shep from Southern Charm, Touche LA Fitness Gear and rain jackets, REN, Uncommon James, and so much more! We are adding more brands daily. We are also proud to share that we have an Orvis retail department, including dog beds & toys, as well as fleeces and gear for hunting and fishing. We have also formed a guide fishing department complete with private waters in Virginia along side Casters owner Dave Heiss.
The renewed focus of our store is on well-being… getting outdoors, staying active and feeling good.
