We live in a complex world. Life itself seems to be so much more complicated than it was just a decade or two ago. Just like most aspects of life, Contracting has also evolved beyond "The Good Ole Days."
It would be nice if we could still just shake hands and take a man at his word. It would be nice if we didn't have so much red tape we need lawyers to build things. But the truth is, Contracting has become anything but a carpenter and a tool box.
On the flip side, I wouldn't want a lawyer to build me a house or remodel my vintage home. In this day and age, if you want a successful project, you need a contractor who not only knows the trades, but also knows the business side of the process.
Don't learn the hard way. Don't hire an ill-equipped contractor to build you a monument of regret. Don't set yourself up so you get sick to your stomach every time you drive up in your yard, because you tried to save a few bucks, or you thought he seemed like a good ole boy.
Permitting documents, loan procedures, insurance requirements, inspection scheduling, project flow, trade phases, lien waivers and multiple other trade mandated administrative duties are just as important in today's complicated world as trade skills and experience are. But with us, you don't have to settle for one or the other. Professional management and professional products.
Let us take the guess work and unnecessary risks out of your dream project process. We'll spell it out in black and white, with no gray area. You'll know what you're getting for your money. So, will the bank (if applicable), the building official, and all other parties involved.
Your vision becomes our plan. Our plan becomes your palace. If you can imagine it, we can build it.

We have been building new homes in Walton and adjacent Counties, since 1995. We've built tiny homes in the 700 square feet range, all the way up to 7500 square feet. We've build homes for as little as 25K, right up to a million dollars. Whether it's financed via cash, bank, VA, USDA, SHIP or any government funding program, give us a shot at transforming your dream into your own Happy Place.
We help customers envision what their project has the potential to become, while staying within the given budget. Experience and skill is priceless when it comes to the "know how" to not only get the job done right, but to also get the job done on budget.
We assist customers with acquiring design professionals and structural engineers. We provide contracts that can be integrated into bank loan documents, funding renovations. We are accustomed to providing documentation needed for progress draws needed by even the most demanding financial institutions.
Whether your plans involve simply remodeling a bathroom, or a total rebuild, we can save you a lot of heartburn associated with hiring folks who are still just practicing construction. Wise people cash in on the lessons others have learned. Let us prove that to you.
We've been providing high quality, reasonably priced reroofing to hundreds of customers as a licensed roofing company since 1996. We specialize in installation of rib panel metal roofing. However, we do shingle reroofing in certain situations. With hundreds of reroofs in Walton and surrounding Counties, we have numerous lasting testimonies and monuments to high quality, long lasting products and service. Be sure to ask us for references or examples of previous reroofing projects.
When it comes to roofing, it's "Cut and Dry," that you need a proven professional. By the way, who's going to warranty your roof when you've written the last check to pay for it? Seriously. Will your roofer still be around? We have a license, a great reputation, and a fully functional conscience that we can't afford to blemish. We roof by the Golden Rule. We'll roof your home like we'd roof our own.
We provide the services and materials necessary to mitigate your wind load short comings. We provide and install hurricane doors, windows and shutters meeting the grueling Miami/Dade HVHZ Large Missile Impact requirements. We also provide and install upgraded hurricane strapping.
Don't be that little pig who built his house of wood and skipped on wind load fortifications. When the wolf starts blowing, blow his mind with some state of the art Miami/Dade opening protection that'll still be standing when that wolf has passed out in utter futility.
We provide peace of mind for you and those you'd lay your life down for. But will you lay your wallet down for them? We think you will, if ever you check into the added security we can build into your fortress by installing Miami/Dade, High Velocity, Hurricane Zone, Large Missile Impact doors, windows and shutters on your shelter from the storm. After all, you've got it all on the line, right on the other side of your doors and windows. Peace of mind is priceless!
We've completed projects as demanding as design-built apartment complexes, down to interior renovations of small offices. We have tested experience at taking projects from an idea, to acquiring financing, designing the project, selecting the property, handling all site work, and then building the structures unto the finished project.
If you have ever hired commercial contractors before, you know the pricing reaches the Heavenly Realm. Our customers have appreciated that though we got their commercial projects done to meet their demanding expectations, we also accomplished these feats via residential budgets. We build value, that equals equity for you right out of the gate.
