We’re proud to introduce Smith Custom Homes, our custom homebuilding and build on your lot program. Drawing from our years of experience designing and building  exquisitely crafted homes, we now invite you into our process in a way that ensures your next home is tailor made for you.

Our style of building is characterized by anticipating and giving heed to the craftsmanship and details that would be most important to a discerning, location-conscious homeowner. We work with our preferred architects Masa Studio and Brickmoon Design to bring your vision to life.

This style will reach new heights in collaboration with you. Whether you already own the site of your home—or choose one of the select lots in close-in neighborhoods we have reserved for custom projects—we offer our full range of design, construction, and selection services for you to employ to whatever extent best meets your needs. 

Our commitment to you is to provide exceptional quality and an expert approach that create the most value for your investment.
