What it means to “Always Build Better”

At our core we believe in quality and attention to detail in our work while applying the most energy efficient building techniques in the construction of quality custom homes. Ever striving to improve the performance of each home we work closely with vendors who share our vision and hand-select materials and products that exceed the highest standard of industry quality guidelines.

We are locally owned and operated and have developed a team of partners who execute with consistency and exceptionality on each and every home. Just a small sample of what sets our homes apart are their spray foam insulated attics, sealed crawlspaces, energy efficient HVAC systems and an electric car charging port in every home.

Because of our dedication to the “Always Build Better” philosophy, we use outside inspectors to gauge our performance and quality metrics, participate actively in local HBA councils as well as being contributors to groups like the Green Home Builders of the Triangle. We also participate in programs such as The Parade of Homes and The Green Home Tour to showcase our level of quality and craftsmanship and give the community an opportunity to compare our homes the rest of the industry. We also take time with each of our customers to conduct on-site reviews to ensure the home we build is exactly what they dreamed.
