The Austin project was another upscale custom home which we constructed from start to finish in 2011. This was a two-story structure constructed on a larger wooded lot. We were pleased to provide the owners with the home of which they could be proud!

Special Features

This home included marble countertops, iron railing for the staircase and special designs in the flooring.

The Story

Chad Austin has been our go to Air & Heating specialist through the years and when he and his family decided to build a custom home out in Fayette County of course we were happy to do this for him. Everything was carefully selected from outside to the inside. We brought the same care and attention to detail to their home that we bring to all of our projects. The home features a beautiful large front porch to take advantage of the beautiful wooded lot it sits on. It was a huge success for us and the Austin Family.

Country Place Retreat

Located near Moscow, Tennessee, in Fayette County, the Country Place is a Christian retreat center which hosts both adult and youth gatherings. The facility includes a lake, trails, swimming pool, basketball court, and housing. Housing originally consisted of various cottages, but we were called upon in 2011 to construct two inns: The Harvest Inn and The Hospitality Inn.


Both inns offer private rooms, a gathering room, spacious bathrooms, handicap-accessible bathrooms, and various luxurious amenities.

Construction of the inns has allowed The Country Place to greatly expand its capacity for hosting large groups.

One of our favorite projects was the construction of dormitories for the Binghampton Christian Academy, located on Tillman Street near Walnut Grove.

The Story

In the early 1990’s, Mrs. Jo Walt was led by God to do something for the hurting children in the Binghampton community. As a result, The Neighborhood School was created to offer a Christian education for children from kindergarten through the eighth grade. Many children who enrolled in the school had fallen between the cracks in public schools, and were facing numerous barriers to becoming academically, financially and spiritually successful.

The school opened in August of 1993 in the gymnasium of Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church with fifteen students and one teacher. One year later, the school moved to its present location with three teachers and twenty-six students. The name was later changed to Binghampton Christian Academy. The school currently consists of twelve teachers, 140 students, and a support staff.

In 2008, our company was called upon to build dormitories for the school. Prior to that time, the residential program had operated in a small house that housed the five boys with the greatest need. Upon completion of our project, the school had two additional dormitory buildings – one for boys and one for girls.

The dormitories are designed to operate like a traditional home. They each consist of a long hall with several shared bedrooms, a kitchen, and a living room area. This allows the residents and house parents to operate much like a traditional family.

Western Fayette County continues to serve as one of the fastest-growing areas in Tennessee, and the Woodsedge subdivision is a prime example of the type of upscale growth that is taking place.

The Area

The Woodsedge subdivision boasts of large wooded lots, underground utilities, strict architectural controls, and protective covenants with restrictions. A homeowners association also exists to help preserve the scenic beauty and atmosphere of the development.

Custom Built

A custom built home on 2.3 wooded acres coming in just under 5,000 sq. ft. total, this house had four bedrooms, three bathrooms and an additional half bath, and a huge bonus/entertainment room. It also included a three-car garage, formal dining room, high-end kitchen, breakfast area, library, and large living room. We were pleased to complete the project with a beautiful and spacious home of which the owners could be proud.

Project Details

The French County was the name given to Lot #101 because of the plans chosen after months of searching for the perfect plan to fit the lots unique character. Every detail was pored over before we even broke ground. Our desire was to build a house that would stand the test of time and meet our high standards. Quality went into every detail of this home. During the project we made several adjustments to make the home even bigger and better, pushing out walls and adding in unique spaces as you can see in the video and pictures. We were very happy and proud to hear the owners tell us that we had built their dream home. Nearly ten years later, they still live in this home. We signed the closing papers just before Thanksgiving, in November 2006. We broke ground in March of the same year, right at nine months from start to finish.

Midtown Memphis is a diverse mixed-use area of the city. It is the home of many cultural attractions, educational institutions, and unique pieces of architecture. It is also recognized as the location of Memphis’ traditional medical district.

Historic District

Multiple historic districts are located in this part of town, so it was important to be conscientious of the surroundings when we acquired this project for a property owner on Jefferson Street.

Starting from Scratch

For this particular project, we began with a demolition of the existing structure and then constructed an entirely new dwelling. This provided the owner with confidence that his new home would be structurally sound.

The final product was a two-story home, with a functional two-car garage, which blended well with the surroundings of the neighborhood.


For nearly twenty years, Ray and Mary Gill lived contentedly in their Yorkshire Forest home, circa 1939. In 2006, however, they determined that it was time to improve their quality of life and expand their living space. They decided to add two spacious wings on either side of the house, two large garages for automobiles, an exercise room, and a guest house that would overlook the swimming pool. The two- year project was completed in 2008, and the Gills were extremely satisfied with the final product.

The History

Throughout the project, our company worked very closely with homeowner Ray Gill to ensure that the sentimental touch was maintained. The home had originally been built on family-owned land by his grandfather, Cordra York Sr. It was very important to maintain its historical character, as seen in its living room mantel, banister, Corinthian columns, doors, and other various architectural elements.

The Details

Thousands of bricks were hauled to the site from Washington in an effort to ensure that each new brick matched the size and color of those used in the original structure. Random-width oak floors were cut in order to match the beveled edges of the old floors. Moldings were also custom-made, and porthole windows over the guest house were designed to match those over the home’s entrance.

More Space

Following the project’s completion, the Gill home was spotlighted in the July 2011 edition of Memphis Magazine. Click Here to read the full article.
