Danny Norris's career started in construction at a young age doing heavy construction as an iron worker for Yeargan Construction Company. While with Yeargan, he personally helped to build some of Central and Eastern North Carolina's largest structures, such as the nuclear power plant at the Sharron-Harris Reservoir and the Firestone Factory in Wilson NC. In 1975, he started working for himself as a Framing Subcontractor for various builders in Central and Eastern NC. Over the next decade he would go on to frame over 500 single and multi-family homes. In 1983, he obtained his contractors license and started building his own homes. With over 4 decades of experience in lite and heavy construction, Danny's knowledge and expertise in the construction industry is unparalleled. The years of real life experience and the trials and errors witnessed has created the accomplished skillset needed to navigate this complex business. There is no substitute for experience, and when you choose one of our homes, you can rest assured knowing that your home has been constructed by a true industry veteran and professional.

Ask any successful builder, and they will tell you that a builder is only as good as the sub-contractors he chooses to help him. Over the years, we have assembled an elite team of sub-contractors that are simply great at their respected professions. Most of our sub-contractors have been with us for over 20 years and are crucial components of our organization. They have all been chosen because of their commitment to detail during construction on their exceptional service and warranty after the sale. The Norris family considers our sub-contractors as members of our extended family. They are not only colleagues but some of our dearest friends and our success is directly tied to theirs.

Our name and reputation is on every house we sell, and we promise to never sell someone a home that we wouldn't happily live in ourselves!
