No Detail is Too Small, and We’ve Thought Through Thousands of Them

Carefully crafted elements brought together into one amazing building experience and home.

Sterling Custom Homes was founded by an engineer and every aspect of our homes is carefully engineered. We think through even the smallest details to make the experience of owning and living in your home more pleasant and fulfilling. Here are just a few examples of the ways in which we go above and beyond the average custom home builder to provide a better home for our clients.

Builder Insight

In this video Duke McDowell, President of Sterling Custom Homes, explains how we use 3D modeling in engineering your home in order to address potential issues in the architectural design and fix them before we ever start building your new custom home, saving you both time and money.

Our new home demonstrates the benefit of your engineering background and custom homebuilding experience. The value of your high professional standards is reflected in the work and the attitude of your staff, subcontractors, and business associates. Thank you for your suggestions, concern, understanding, care, clear and frequent communication, patience with our many questions, attention to details and follow-up.
