What We Do

We build. We build homes, dreams, lifestyles, relationships, and so much more. As the premier custom home builder Banner Elk North Carolina, we have built our reputation on understanding the importance of standing behind our work while we stand beside the best trades in the high country. We take our clients’ dreams and aspirations and make them a reality. We raise each other up and reinforce the common goal to see our clients in their own custom fine homes in the Blue Ridge Mountains. We build primarily in Banner Elk, Boone, Blowing Rock, Vilas, Valle Crucis and have now expanded into Tennessee.

We communicate. At a glance, you might just see us as a custom home builder Banner Elk North Carolina has to offer that is not much different than the competitors. As you really get to know us, you will see that we are also master communicators. We answer the phone every time it rings and, if by chance we miss a call, we always return it in a timely fashion. We use construction management software to keep our homeowners updated on the status of their home’s progress by posting pictures, progress reports, updated estimates and invoices, changes to plans, and any other happenings around their custom build. We want our clients to have all of the data they require at their fingertips, to feel confident in their new home.

We drill down on details and strive to leave no stone (or screw) unturned. We work very closely with architects, engineers, and interior designers to ensure our homes are built to the highest standards. We walk through each step of the build, with our trusted team, to sort through all of the specifications and details. We take our time to review the details and make sure we get them right before we put a single shovel in the ground. We measure twice and cut once. We have built our custom home builder Banner Elk North Carolina team to accumulate a broad range of custom home building industry knowledge. By putting our heads together, and always striving to hold ourselves accountable, we have developed our own detailed checklists. These checklists help us to trust but verify that our homes are built with superior standards and attention to detail.

We educate ourselves and each other. Every half step is a learning opportunity that we take very seriously. We share these experiences as a team so we only have to learn the lesson once. Research and education are very important to us. We strive to make sure we are always up to date whether it’s on the constantly evolving building code and building science or the upcoming trends and materials, while at the same time understanding the value of tradition and tried and true methods. It takes balance and awareness of what is needed on a case-by-case basis to know the best option for each home and each homeowner. We use our education to guide our clients through the many decisions that go into a custom home so that the end product is a reflection of their individuals needs and values.

We strive to be the best. What does that mean to us? We hold ourselves accountable to be fair, honest, and upfront. We strive to create an experience for our homeowners. We strive to be direct and forthcoming so we limit any unexpected surprises. We strive to be the people and builders we would want to have building our own homes. As far as the custom home builder Banner Elk North Carolina community goes, we strive to set the bar for home builders in the High Country.

“The whole difference between construction and creation is exactly this: that a thing constructed can only be loved after it is constructed; but a thing created is loved before it exists.”
