Our Superior Standards

It’s simple...Our Standards are High. You will be challenged to find another local custom home builder with the same quality standards that we offer.  We don’t just build a house, we design and build your home. Building a better home with integrity is what our company takes pride in.
The efficiency and cost savings you will realize over the many years to come is a direct reflection of the high standards of a custom built home by PH Design & Construction. 
Design is our God-given talent and superior craftsmanship is our commitment.

Site Work

When we price a home for you we include the work it’s going to take to excavate the basement, backfill and grade, install construction driveway, utilities, sewer or septic and well, proper finished grading, etc.  Make sure when selecting a builder you are getting priced on everything it is going to take to build the home on the lot you are currently considering.  Many builders may leave out the site work as a separate part of the contract
