Mike’s wife, Julie, is a native Kingwood resident. Her family moved to Kingwood from New Orleans in 1972 and her parents still live in their original house in Trailwood and are active within the community. Mike and Julie first met and briefly dated while attending Kingwood High School before re-connecting after their freshman year in college. They both graduated from Texas A&M and were married in Houston in the year 2000. Mike & Julie then moved back into Kingwood in 2004 to start and raise their family.
Mike and Julie have four wonderful daughters who all attend Kingwood area schools, KHS, Riverwood Middle and Greentree Elementary. Their daughters are involved in local activities including cross country, softball, 4-H, and horseback riding. Further extending the Wimberly’s reach into the heart of Kingwood, Julie is a teacher at Greentree and their family also belongs to the Kingwood United Methodist Church. Mike was also instrumental in launching the first Kingwood Annual Festival this year.

Mike is the owner of a Kingwood business, The Framestead Group. Frame-stead is a single-family residential construction business focused on new home construction and remodels. Everything they do is custom – yet still competitive and affordable. Their goal is to add functionality and value to their clients’ largest asset, their home. Framestead is a family-centered business where ALL of their employees are residents of Kingwood.
Two years ago this month, just after Hurricane Harvey, Framestead took on over 35 Kingwood families as clients whose homes were affected by the floods.
This dramatic experience has formed the cornerstone of ideals for Framestead. Mike Wimberly stated, “The only way we could complete this many projects and help these families was through building trusting relationships and following through with our dedicated and efficient team.” He continued, “It was during this time that we really gelled as a team and realized that we were not just rebuilding damaged homes but were an integral part to helping these families, our neighbors.” To cap off the Harvey flood repairs, Framestead is proud to have recently completed the reconstruction of the Manor House of Barrington.
In addition to handling “whole home” remodeling and new construction, they also operste a window and door subsidiary based out of Kingwood, Truwin Windows and Doors. Truwin covers a large service area around Houston and specializes in installing new windows, siding, and doors. In an effort to reach every customer, Mike also owns and operates The Bath Pro-gram, a streamlined bathroom remodeling program focused on offering custom bathroom remodels at baseline prices. The Bath Program offers a wide variety of bathroom remodeling options for any home big or small with efficient selection and build times.
The experienced team of employees, their knowledge in construction, attention to detail, and their focus on customer service and relationships are what makes Framestead the local contractor of choice. They have a team of very dedicated professionals who fully understand how difficult it is to undergo a new construction or remodel and effectively communicate the process to their clients.
The majority of Framestead’s clients are secured through referrals and repeat customers. They’ve found an effective balance, through communication, trust, and integrity, along with high standards of quality to successfully complete in-home and exterior remodels for their clients that ultimately make the customers very happy!
If you’re considering building a new home or remodeling your existing home, it’s important to research what’s most important to you. While price is always a consideration, understanding all of the underlying details within the scope of work is critical and in the end, you will get what you pay
