For homebuyers who want a house that reflects their personality and lifestyle, customizing your residential project is what transforms a house into a home. The perfect custom home build means having your opinions respected and your choices considered. It’s a process that demands trust and clear, experienced communication.

Customized homes are one of Griffin’s specialties. With years of homebuilding expertise, our team of craftsmen prides itself on a smooth and reliable build process. Every detail of your home is as important to us as it is to you.

No desired custom feature is beyond our ability, from stunning tilework to stone fireplaces to vaulted ceilings and more. However you envision your dream home, we want to build it together.


Older homes have character and charm but often possess problems from the everyday wear and tear of life. Or maybe you have a newer residence that needs a cosmetic makeover to match your style and sensibility. When you’re ready for a lasting and custom renovation, Griffin is the construction company to trust.

We have years of experience updating kitchens and bathrooms, basements and bonus rooms, master bedrooms and closets, and more. Our team of professionals maintains your home’s sentimental value while improving its bones. By listening to your design preferences, future needs, and current desires, we’ll make your home the perfect place for now and for years to come.


Preservation of the historic architecture throughout our region is vital to our area. The variety of architecture in Asheville has given us the unique opportunity to work on historic restoration projects like downtown commercial Art Deco buildings and an 1860’s plantation house.

Asheville also is home to charming, historic neighborhoods such as Montford, Kenilworth, Biltmore Forest, and Grove Park, which have provided Griffin with rewarding residential renovation projects. Honoring the vision and craftsmanship of the original builders and owners is an honor and privilege for our team.

Developing a team of the area’s best trade partners and subcontractors ensures every aspect of your home design meets Griffin’s rigorous quality—and yours.

Whether you are upsizing, downsizing, building, or renovating, Griffin is committed to realizing your desired project with a smooth timeline and efficient process.

Do I need an architect?

In most cases, we suggest using an architect. Most construction work requires a permit from the local municipality and the permit application almost always requires the submittal of a plan. Professional plans allow us to give our customers the most accurate pricing possible. Good plans also help customers to know if they are receiving honest bids when interviewing multiple contractors. We have worked with many architects in the area and can make recommendations for individuals and firms that would be a good fit for your project.

Is Griffin a fixed price or cost plus builder?

We contract our work in multiple ways depending on the project and needs or our customers. No matter what type of contract we use, our policy is to work in an open book, transparent manner. Even in fixed-price contracts, we share our cost and profit information with our customers. Not only is this a more pleasant way to do business but it enables us to see the inner workings of your budget and to arrive at a final cost and scope that best meets your needs.

Do you perform the work yourself or use subcontractors?

That depends on the project. Griffin maintains a workforce of laborers and carpenters to help perform certain aspects of projects and to fill in the gaps between subcontractors. We utilized subcontractors for all major trades and most large categories like roofing and framing. Over the years we have developed outstanding relationships with subcontractors and have a diverse team to choose from depending on the specific job. We match our workforce to the project and customer to create the best team at the right budget, every time. Our subcontractors understand our expectations and are dedicated to our philosophy of customer satisfaction.

How do you manage communication with your customers?

We have weekly job site meetings with our customers and their design professionals. We also utilize a daily reporting application that sends reports as well as picture updates and daily weather information. Our project manager submits this report to the customer and other design professionals so they can be kept up to date.

How do you manage scheduling?

We use Microsoft Project to create and manage detailed schedules in both list and critical path format. These schedules are updated and reviewed regularly to keep the customer informed and our crew scheduled ahead.

What is your licensing level?

Griffin has an unlimited building license in North Carolina.

How do you handle change orders?

We handle changes orders in the same transparent fashion as our contract budgets. No elaborate ruse, just actual costs with the same markup used in the base contract. We believe that change orders should be charged the same rate as the rest of our work.
