Design-build firms handle both the design and construction phase of a project. Historically, the design-build process has consisted of working with a designer, architect and contractor for a new build or home renovation. Today, all of these specialties can exist under one roof.

With nearly three decades of experience, local company Graham Builders has helped hundreds of families design and construct their homes. In fact, the award-winning company has built a reputation as a trusted design-build firm by working closely with clients and sharing successful strategies other families have used.

Homeowners work face to face with their personal architectural designer and coordinator, enabling the designer to understand the homeowners’ unique lifestyle and goals. This team approach, combined with decades of successful experience, produces customized homes fit for the family.

“It’s important for family members to have private spaces they can retreat to,” says company Vice President Ryan Graham. “Noise from grandpa’s booming television and the cries of a newborn must be buffered.”

Says satisfied Graham Builders client Carl Williams: “Graham Builders’ design philosophy worked well. … We recommend Graham Builders for anyone looking for a rebuild or remodel, or whatever you need.”
