Art, Beauty, Order, Life

We are architecture-degreed masterbuilders with a general contractor license.  We are not architects.  Rather, we are design-build professionals dedicated to the beautiful arts, practicing an art and craft thousands of years old.  Our focus is design, artistic craftsmanship, sound construction, and innovation—for the betterment of humanity.  A serious emphasis is on affordability, cost control, and practicality, with a deep sensitivity to beauty and human comfort.




We operate throughout the Charlotte area and surrounding counties.
