We build, remodel and maintain the highest quality homes in Southeastern NC. Our projects are constructed to precision. We are much more hands on than most other builders. We take pride in assigning Kingpost talent on site through-out a project. This insures a house is built to our highest standards of quality and finish while efficiently managing the process every single day. Kingpost managers and carpenters are committed to streamlining projects under aggressive schedules. This degree of management cannot be done in an office with occasional site visits; it takes continual field oversight and direction. We love what we do and that energy and enthusiasm is evidenced in the in the homes we create.
