About Us

At Beacon Custom Homes we are here to help you achieve your residential lifestyle goals through thoughtful home design
and quality construction implementation.

We share your excitement in the planning of your project. We believe that EVERY client is as unique as are the opportunities for varying results. Our clients work directly with one of our three owners to identify particular goals, interests, and needs. Together we work to develop a design that satisfies each unique vision, while striking the appropriate balance between cost and features.

Our team takes pride in working closely with talented architects, tradespeople, suppliers, and other professionals who share our passion.

Hands-on supervision of each project ensures that the construction process is efficient and fruitful. Our management style provides for organized job sites, adherence to budgets, realistic scheduling, and fair dealings with our clients, suppliers and subcontractors. We are proud of our finished projects and we care about the needs of each and every client.

We are leaders in the Hampton Roads home-building community, and once you take the opportunity to work with us, you will learn why.
