Our Story

Michael and Peyton met in college, where they were both planning to be Physical Therapists. Turns out, they were not meant to be Physical Therapists, and God had other plans for them. Michael was influenced by his parents who set examples of what it was like to be a hard worker. His dad was a fireman in Lafayette as well as a custom cabinet builder when he was not on duty. He worked alongside his dad while he was still in school helping him with the cabinet business. He had a love for construction and Peyton had a keen eye and love for design. They both had an entrepreneurial spirit. After much prayer and consideration, they decided to follow their dreams of building homes. Peyton switched her major to Business Management while Michael switched to Industrial Technology with a focus in construction. Once they graduated, they started out with small remodeling jobs and quickly grew from there. Their business grew by word of mouth and referrals. Every job ended with satisfied customers, eager to share their newly completed projects with family and friends, which always led to new clients excited to have the same experience.


Michael and Peyton both feel blessed to have their dream jobs and believe their passion shows throughout their work. With God’s timing and their obedience, they have built this business where they get to do what they we are called to do and are lucky enough to do it together.


“My favorite part of being a home builder is seeing the excitement of our clients as their dreams come to life. I get so excited alongside our clients as if it were my own home being built.” -Peyton


“I have always loved construction and working with my hands. I feel like God really blessed me with not only getting to work my dream job of building houses but getting to do it alongside my best friend.” -Michael
