Our Guiding Principles

Community Design and Development

We believe in building neighborhoods and homes of timeless design.

We respect your need for ease and convenience, building walkable neighborhoods close to everything important to you.

We see nature as a necessity, not just an amenity, and include ample greenspace with corner parks and walking trails.

Building Design

We seamlessly blend classic design and modern tastes. We believe inside should flow effortlessly outside. We believe our best collaborator is you.

Our Values

We act with honesty and integrity at all times. We see craftsmanship as non-negotiable. We believe in treating everyone with respect. We believe in team. It takes a village to create a village.

Sustainable Design

We use land and natural resources wisely to minimize commutes and benefit the built environment.

We have a responsibility to the planet. We are committed to green, energy-efficient practices and were the first to build a LEED Gold Certified home in Ohio.

We have a responsibility to you. Every component in our homes is energy efficient to minimize
operating costs.
