As you explore the possibility of building your own custom home, we invite you to learn more about how Refined Custom Builders works and take a peek at some of the many beautiful homes we have built.


Comprehensive Services that Take You from Vision to Plan to Reality

Every custom home begins with a unique vision – yours. Whether your vision is a big-picture idea waiting to be fully shaped or is already very well defined, our mission is to bring it to life in every detail. Our team members have expertise in all of the elements involved in building a custom home and we tailor our services to meet your precise needs.

At the start, we can assist with property identification as well as acquisition, construction, and long-term financing options. Every engagement involves straightforward discussions about budget and timing requirements. Once these important parameters are settled, our design team* works closely with you to fully understand your wishes in terms of style, layout, features, finishes, and amenities. When the design team has completed the drawings, construction begins and our project managers oversee progress on a daily basis to ensure that exactly what you envisioned for your custom home becomes reality, on schedule and within budget.

* Please note that we are also happy to work with an architect of your choice.



A Passion for Excellence

The entire team at Refined Custom Builders shares a true passion for building one-of-a-kind homes. We combine years of hands-on experience with ongoing exploration of new design ideas, innovative construction materials, and state-of-the-art residential technology to deliver custom homes that enhance the lifestyle of their owners in every way.

Building from the ground up is a rare opportunity to customize everything that touches your everyday experience. Interior floor plans and outdoor spaces can be designed to perfectly accommodate the way you like to live and entertain. Windows can be placed to catch the best natural light and frame the most beautiful views. Flooring, cabinetry, and countertops can be crafted from an endless array of natural wood, marble, or stone. Advanced home entertainment and security systems can be selected based on your particular needs. The possibilities are unlimited – virtually anything you desire can be designed exactly as you envision it.
