The team at SHC is a full-service company that is skilled at every phase of a home, from concept and design to construction and finish. This ensures that the end goal of a healthy and beautiful home is maintained throughout the entire process. We hire very few subcontractors, and those we do hire are as passionate about quality as we are. This constant presence allows us to build more quickly and more efficiently, saving both time and money, giving us the ability to offer high-quality products in a cost-effective manner.


The driving force behind the quality of our homes is integrity. Our Christian faith motivates us to work hard and honestly and to give the home buyer/owner excellence even in the areas they do not see. We run our business on a zero debt budget, allowing us to focus fully on the needs and desires of our customers.


Experience and education are our biggest assets. We can build a better home because we understand how each individual decision affects the efficiency of the home as a whole. Our greatest passion is building highly energy efficient homes, which begins with design. We seek out manufacturer training and stay sharp to the newest developments on the market. Furthermore, our desire is not simply to be educated, but to educate the home buyer/owner on the performance of their home.
