Featured Reviews for Home Builders in Columbus
Maple Craft LLC
Home Builders in Columbus
"Our contractor Gary helped us design and then delivered a large upscale sunroom addition for our home. He listened to our vision from the start and included every feature we wanted on the plan. He stayed flexible so we could make some changes along the way. By using online tool BuilderTrend.com, we could follow his schedule, updates, and track our budget. The architecture looks just right with our existing structure, truly an enhancement. There is a wall of windows and eight skylights providing wonderful light into the room. Gary also found our "glass floor" for our upper deck/balcony, allowing light into the entry of the room below, a most unique feature in Ohio. Gary added the new second floor deck and access to the ground via spiral staircase. The new sunroom has a 12.5 foot granite bar with sink and fridge for entertaining, and a wall that accommodates a 13 foot couch to enjoy our big screen TV. The new bathroom is my favorite, with jetted tub and bidet. There is new outside storage for our pool and gardening equipment. A new partly-covered wrap-around deck is the perfect look and passage to our back yard pool. The project turned out better than I could have imagined. Gary kept us informed and worked right along with us when we needed to tweak an aspect of the plan. He gave us the design we wanted when others could not see how to do it. It was a great experience working with Gary and an excellent result."

"We had an excellent experience with 3 Pillar Homes. From the moment we met the sales staff and the owner of the company we felt very at home with the staff.

The Tuckerman Home Group
Home Builders in Columbus
"The Tuckerman Home Group are true professionals who make building a custom home in Central Ohio as easy and fun as possible for their clients. I watched Lisa Theado and Jeff Slater guide new homeowners through the process step by step as well as hook up more than a dozen buyers with their pre-built homes in my short time there. I highly recomend them due to the quality of their interior spaces, their creativity outside, and their professional integrity."

Gemini Corporation Building Solutions
Home Builders in Columbus
"We hired Gemini to complete some major remodeling in the upstairs of our split level - bedrooms, kitchen and bathrooms. They combined 2 small bedrooms into a large master bedroom with walk-in closet - moving doors and closets in the hall and other bedroom. They combined 2 small bathrooms in to one large bathroom with updated features. They demolished a defined three room living, dining, and kitchen into a large open area with support beams in the ceiling to hold the load. New open kitchen area is unbelievable - cabinet design and layout, granite countertops, and tile floor combination is warm, classy, and beautiful. Gemini did a good job dealing with all our changes through the project. They were friendly, professional and always cleaned up after themselves. Excellent quality and good people to work with."

Woodsmen Builders, Inc.

"They built our house providing great workmanship and integrity. They are very knowledgeable and used quality materials. While the house was being built, they were either doing the work or inspecting the work of others to ensure the quality desired. Any repair work was quickly completed. They will charge you a fair price. You can allow them into your home and trust that everything will be completed as promised. This is a company you can trust."

Artisan Design-Build LLC
Home Builders in Columbus
"We had the privilege of working with Artisan Design Build in designing and building our home from start to finish. We were pleased with the entire experience. Jeff was able to incorporate our ideas, show us 3-D models of our custom home as we worked with him to design it. He went above and beyond what a custom home builder would be expected to do to make sure we were ecstatic with our new home. We would highly recommend Jeff Huey and Artisan Design Build for your building needs.-Dana and Kimberly Price"

DiYanni Custom Homes
Home Builders in Columbus
"After meeting with six local design/build companies, we felt DiYanni was the right choice for our project. Jenny and Ray addressed all our concerns and brought unique ideas to the table. In terms of price, they were in the middle of the quotes we received and we are happy with the value for the final price. With all the companies we got initial quotes from and proceeded to designs with, the initial quote was significantly less than the actual cost. Whether this was because of the scale/scope of our particular project or standard practice, I couldn't say for sure. Throughout the design phase Jenny was spectacular, answering questions and modifying the design (including revising 3D renderings of the space) multiple times until it was just right. Her input on style choices was much appreciated. We are now entering the build phase of the project and can't wait to see the end result. Their process is seamless, handing off from one person to the next in an established manner that makes the project move smoothly from phase to phase. I would highly recommend this company for designing your remodel."

What do new home builders do?


For residential home builders who also act as developers, the job starts well before the first nail is driven. They perform local market research to determine whether the prospective homesites make sense in the Columbus market, as well as survey the land on which the house will be built to make sure it is suitable for construction. Custom builders also obtain the necessary permits.

A good custom home builder in Columbus has skills that go far beyond construction — he or she must supervise subcontractors and artisans; keep tabs on local zoning regulations, building codes and other legalities; inspect work for problems along the way; and perform dozens of other roles that are essential in building a quality house. Here are some related professionals and vendors to complement the work of home builders: Interior Designers & Decorators, Landscape Architects & Landscape Designers, Architects & Building Designers, Kitchen & Bath Designers, Specialty Contractors.

House builders are responsible for ensuring that the home-building project sticks as closely as possible to the specified timetable, particularly in the event of change orders. Custom and luxury home builders in Columbus also need interpersonal skills to deal with clients of all types, soothe frazzled nerves, negotiate conflicts and resolve problems.

Questions to ask a prospective custom home builder in Columbus:


  • How long have you been in the home building business?
  • How many projects like mine have you completed?
  • Who will be working on the project?
  • Are the workers employees or subcontractors?
  • Can you provide me with references?
  • May I see a current jobsite?
  • Can you give me the addresses of some houses you have built?
  • Are you and your employees licensed and insured?
  • What license(s) do you have?
  • What other training and affiliations do you have?
  • How do you charge, and what does that include?
  • Can you give me a written estimate?
  • What do your services include?
  • How will I be charged for parts and materials?
  • When can your job get done?
  • What is your policy for change orders?
