As the Company's clients attest, our interest is on a “client first” focus. This business model was set by Eric L. Gilmore, the Company’s President. It is a commitment to client service that flows from his work history in residential and commercial construction observing what worked for clients and what did not. He believes and has learned that putting the client first requires a high level of communication and dedication to making the building process client friendly - pleasant and satisfying.
We have developed an expertise in "Right Path" management of our home building and remodeling projects. We guide our clients through the maze of building options and select the "right path." A team of artful designers, engineers, our Project Manager and skilled craftsmen is assembled and its collaboration defines the right path to designing and building the project. A "right path" is selected when the decision to build with panels, or traditional stick methods or factory produced modular components. The right path will assure a finished project will be within a client's budget, image of the final project and preferences.
