Our Homebuilding Philosophy

It starts with our love of what we do, our love of people, and our commitment to stewardship.

There’s an old saying: a house is just a building, but people make a home. It’s in our name: South Shore Custom Homes…we begin all our projects by getting to know our clients personally. What do they like? What’s their lifestyle? Do they have hobbies? What sports do their kids or grandchildren participate in?

Only when we know you do truly begin our process. Do you like to entertain? We might steer you toward a more open kitchen instead of a cozy space. Do you appreciate fine woodwork? We might suggest custom built-ins and spend the time to select the perfect pieces of wood to make your house unique. A home designed just the way you live, that fits you perfectly.

At South Shore Custom Homes, we pay attention to the small details that make the homes we build special. Our decades-long dedication to our craft, our ongoing commitment to using proven materials and techniques, and our devotion to building timeless, high quality, beautiful homes on-time and on-budget has helped us earn many awards, secured our place in publications showcasing distictive homes, and ultimately, helped us to build lifelong friendships with our clients.


We love what we do.  We view homebuilding as both an art form and a tradition.  We’re known to take a day out of the office every few months just to go try out new faucets.  We spend time getting our hands on the latest appliances, using them to cook, bake, and clean.  We research innovations in wall construction, for goodness sake: all of it, in an ongoing effort to build better, healthier, safer homes that will last for generations.

Our stewardship begins there, before we even meet.  As we get to know you, we have deep and tested knowledge ready to be brought to bear on creating the home you’ve dreamed of, but didn’t imagine possible.  It begins there, but it carries through to the recommendations we make.  You’ll hear us say often, “I’d put that in my home”: an endorsement that applies to every aspect of the homes we build, from beneath the footings to the highest chimney cap.

Stewardship continues through the build and beyond: we watch your budget carefully, ensuring that care is taken by each of our trades to deliver exquisite workmanship, frugally.  Frugally, never cheaply…because there IS a difference.  

We’d love to meet you. Call us today for an appointment to share your dreams at 262.404.5070.
