Our goal is to be an integral part of and have a positive impact on Ellis County. We love the small-town feeling of our growing community and work to preserve its character amidst inevitable change.

For over 15 years of home building, we have known that our success is dependent on our reputation. We are in business to build as many quality, enduring friendships with our customers as the quality, enduring homes we build. Our customers are our neighbors, and we are privileged to know each and every one.

Lance and Laurie Whitlock
