Who we are

Since 1988 Shelter Alternatives has served homeowners of the New River Valley with new homes, additions and remodels. Our dedicated design team focuses on making each project the best that it can be, and our field staff follows through with quality construction.

We are guided by these core values:

  • We do the right thing because we believe.
  • Take responsibility for our actions and our impact on the environment.
  • Stand by all commitments and follow up until it's right.
  • Cultivate trust through clear communications and expectations.
  • Take pride in the details.
  • Embrace creativity, new ideas and growth.
  • Focus on people and planet, not just profit.
  • Foster teamwork and community involvement.
  • Find music in every day – and play it!
