About Mike Edwards, owner & founder of Plainsman Home Services

Take back your weekends! 

After working in the construction industry in various capacities and trades for many years, I returned to graduate school when my wife started her doctoral program at Auburn University.  Veterinary school followed her PhD, and my path led me to public service, working in municipal finance, budgeting and strategic planning. 


Eventually, my background in construction, as well as my passion for building meaningful spaces, caught up with me and I finished my career with the City of Auburn developing capital projects meeting strategic priorities…everything ranging from accessibility improvements to greenways to dog parks to new public safety facilities.  Over the years, I’ve also kept my hands active and skills sharp with side projects and complete home renovations.  We’ve added a few kids along the way as well.

In 2018, we moved to Shrewsbury when my wife’s research and collaborations led to a faculty appointment at UMass Medical School.  I’ve taken the move as an opportunity to get back to doing what I am good at and what I truly enjoy…building better spaces for people to enjoy with their family and friends. 


I started Plainsman Home Services to do something I love every day and find a better work/life balance.  You’ve worked hard to get where you are in your career; let me help you make the most of your time away from it and take back your weekends!
