The Browns are an Island family with deep roots in the western part of the province. Peter Brown was born in 1954 in Richmond, Prince Edward Island, the fourth oldest child in a farming family of ten. After graduating high school in 1972, Peter journeyed across the country and worked construction jobs while exploring the great outdoors of British Columbia. During his time in the West, Peter realized he had both a passion and an aptitude for business and construction. He began contracting services and co-owned a Pro Shop at a local ski hill, and during that time met and married Muriel Boulanger - a local from Prince Rupert.
Peter longed for the lifestyle found on the red shores of Prince Edward Island, so Peter and Muriel settled in Richmond and began their family. True to his passion, Peter founded Bayside Contracting in 1983 and became a Four-Seasons Sunroom franchise in 1986. In 1988, Peter purchased the Vancouver Four-Seasons franchise and moved there for a year to reconnect with Muriel’s family. In 1989, Peter and his family made the decision to move back to PEI and opened Bayside Wood Products Inc, manufacturing cabinets and other large-scale carpentry projects.
Between 1989 and 2010, Peter built numerous homes, agricultural buildings, government projects, as well as several large executive homes, and many custom projects. He and Muriel had five children - Christina, Brendon, Timothy, Scott, and Hannah - who grew up surrounded by the construction industry and watched their father work tirelessly to build and improve their community.
Peter’s work left an impression on his children and many of them have worked within the company as they grew up. Today, Peter’s youngest son, Scott, is leading the company, now called Bayside Group, into the future. With his hardworking and knowledgeable father by his side, Scott plans to take the family business to new heights and provide Prince Edward Island with the very highest degree of professional real estate services.
