Custom Homes

New home construction has been a signature product for us since our humble beginning in 1979. Exceptional attention to detail and craftsmanship, along with a strong emphasis on customer involvement are the bedrocks on which this company has been built.

In past years we have built 1,000 square foot starter homes, 10,000 square foot show places, and everything in between. In all cases, a great deal of effort was put forth to make sure that our customers’ hard-earned dollars were well-spent. We have always taken the approach that we are building a custom home for our customer, and not for ourselves, and thereby allow our customers to make as many decisions as they feel comfortable making. (This includes – doors, windows, cabinets, flooring, fixtures, etc.) We feel that this best fits the desires of the customer in designing the house of their dreams.

Over the past thirty years we have become quite skilled at managing the complexity of the 5,000 square foot luxury home, and we use the same set of skills to manage the many homes that we have built in the more common 1,500 to 3,000 square foot range. Years later, with hundreds of homes constructed all over Southern Illinois, our emphasis has remained unchanged – Build beautiful, strong structures that our clients will call “home” and will make us all proud.
