Looking to Build a home?
850 Building Group, you are getting more than just a house. You’re getting a home and everything that comes with that: a sense of place and belonging and the feeling of knowing you are part of a great community. You just know that your house is a home. That’s our specialty.

People are innately aware of the feeling a home brings…the sense of belonging, of safety and satisfaction, and that all-important sense of serenity. Our satisfaction comes when we know that these intangibles are transformed into your reality, that they are part of your sensory experience: the smell of the new wood from the deck you designed, the sound of kids playing in the yard, the feel of a handmade rocking chair and the taste of a home-cooked meal made in the kitchen you designed. We like being there for you as you turn your dreams of owning a gorgeous, custom-built house into your home.

We offer unparalleled speed and precision when it comes to building a home because we have the experience to get the job done fast and completed with superior quality. We overlook no detail and work with you every step of the way…from the proposal phase to finalization.

It all starts with you. 850 Building Group, we work with you through every phase to create the home that you want and fits your requirements. For us, this is an ongoing process of one-on-one communication, making sure we deliver your dream with quality, unrivaled craftsmanship, integrity and unparalleled customer service.

We’ve made so many friends over the years…friendships that were begun as a result of 850 Building Group building a house for a customer. We have built over 600 beautiful homes and fostered at least as many personable relationships along the way. We truly love what we do. Let us transform our passion for realizing dreams into your dream home today.

If you have any questions about building a home in our service area, about the area itself or would just like to pick our brains for an upcoming construction project, we are at your disposal. Please contact us today! 850-642-7500
