What We Do

As an experienced and firmly established builder, Terry strives to deliver a home beyond expectation and understands when it comes to a home, it is an extension of the client.

  • pre-contstruction


    First, we meet with the client to determine where in the process they are of defining the project. Next, we find out what their objectives are for Pre-Construction and what questions and issues will need to be resolved. We often are consulted even before an architect is engaged and love to be involved throughout the design process. Architects often bring us onto their team early in the process so that we can work together on realistic budgets in the design phase.

  • pre-contstruction


    Whether you need complete home construction services or renovations to your current home, the Terry Elston Builder team is an experienced and diverse group of professionals who are poised to provide clients with quality service, clear communications, and strong management skills needed to produce successful projects. We begin with bidding your project to various sub-contractors and vendors, and starting with a realistic budget that serves as a guide throughout the project.

  • pre-contstruction


    The Post-Construction phase allows for the continued adjustment, optimization and modification of your construction project to meet the specified requirements. We will continue to support your project and the success of it throughout the warranty period and beyond.


Choosing a Home Builder

Building a new home or remodeling your current home is one of the most expensive and unique endeavors most people will make in their lifetime. It is also one of the most personal purchases a homeowner will embark on. That makes it even more imperative that you choose a builder that is an accomplished craftsman and of high integrity. A critical component of building a home is finding a builder that is skilled at managing the team of subcontractors required to build a high quality house.

  • “We bought a house Terry had built and loved it so much that a few years later, when we decided to build our dream home, we knew he would be the one to build it. His attention to detail is excellent and his easy going personality makes what can be a stressful situation, enjoyable. Having Terry as our builder was the best decision we made. And the end result is an amazing home where we wake up every day and smile.”

  • “We cannot say enough good things about Terry Elston Builder! They have been accessible, prompt in responding, and always positive & agreeable. Their professionalism, quality of work, and attention to detail is amazing. This is the first house we have actually built and their entire team has been there and helped every step of the way. They’ve been super in finding a solution to any issue that has come up. We are given a “plan for the week” at the beginning of every week, and continually updated on the status of the plans for the week. Excellent communication. I cannot say enough! A real pleasure to work with!”

  • “My husband and I used Terry Elston Builder to remodel a home from the 1930s. Remodels can lead to a lot of challenges and Terry’s team was up for this challenge. Terry walked us through the process with his vision of how we could take this older home and make it meet our modern needs. His right hand man, Cole, did an excellent job with details on our job and being available to answer any questions. This WHOLE company is there to meet all of your needs. Terry Elston does an excellent job building not just a house, but a home for your family to enjoy. Thank you to the whole team!”
