About

Building new homes for over 20 years

Founded in 1999, we have grown from building a few homes a year to being listed as one of the nation's "Top 100" Builders. Our success has been achieved by building a team of employees that understand customer service and trade partners that value a quality product.

The company foundation.

The company foundation.

Our customer is our foundation. A home is one of the larger purchases made in life. Tied to this investment is more than a dollar figure; there are opinions, beliefs, emotions... A sense that we as the builders, will treat their home as a priority, and that the voices of our customers will be heard and respected. Our business depends on our customer’s happiness and our foundation is based on that guarantee.

In the backyard.

With a home office centrally located to the areas where we build in North Carolina, we live and build in our own backyard. We handpick our neighborhoods and have formed strong relationships with the most reputable subcontractors and product vendors. Most importantly, we encourage our future homeowners to participate in every stage of our building process. From visiting neighborhood model homes to selecting finishes in our Fayetteville Design Studio, it’s all within a short drive.
