Building Custom Homes from the Foundation Up

The process begins with the site location and topography. If you already have a building lot, it is never too early to start planning; if you have not found a lot, we may be able to help. In either case, once we have located the building site we focus the design on taking advantage of the setting to suit its individual characteristics and your individual needs. Since every site is different, we work to find the best solution for each situation. Communication is the key. Designing custom homes is more than arranging walls and doors on a plan, it means listening to your ideas and providing you with every alternative to create a home uniquely your own.

We'll consider your needs and lifestyle along with the lay of the land, sun and wind directions, style of home, approach, views, and any other criteria inherent to your situation.

We work continuously to perfect our system for construction. With our complete staff of quality craftsmen, we construct your house without taking short-cuts, and we will closely manage the job to ensure that the process runs smoothly and efficiently. Our team of carpenters, site supervisors and designers allow us to manage your project from the first design meeting to the final building inspection.
