We strive to bring dedication, quality, and passion to creating a place that you will be proud to call home.

Our passion and drive does not end in building quality homes. Our hearts cry is to love God and love people. We are in the business of “Kingdom” advancement and that is reflected in how we give of our time, our talents and our finances.

We have been a contributing member of Volunteer Christian Builders since 1993. Each summer VCB picks a church to build in the US and we travel to that location to build it over the course of a week. We are also contributors to House For a Home, I61 ministry, 10-7 outdoors, as well as several other local churches and charities.
