BEST OF HOUZZ 2014 - 2020!

I've spent my 20-year building career delivering homes that blend historic architecture with current trends.  I truly believe that every home - regardless of size - can and should be build with character.

While I certainly am drawn to building projects styled with traditional, Southern architecture that stand the test of time, I enjoy incorporating other elements that my clients envision. I understand that building is a personal experience for my clients, and that is exactly what we deliver.

A former CPA, I decided it was time to turn my passion for traditional building and architecture into a career in 2000.  Bret Franks Construction handles new home construction and small to large remodels

I credit the success of our company to our work ethic and the transparency we provide our clients. As far as planning and budgeting, those elements come natural for a CPA. I have a time-tested process that starts with meeting the client to determine their goals and project details and culminates with an itemized budget rather than a list of allowances.

Additionally, I personally lead and oversee the construction process rather than relying on a foreman.  I keep my number of ongoing projects to a point that allows me to personally ensure the quality of every build.

I have been a proud member of the Southern Living Custom Builder Program since 2005 and have been fortunate enough to build two Southern Living Custom Home Builder Showcase Homes.  Both of these showcase events, along with the auctioning of a tiny green home that I was asked to build for the Clinton Presidential Library's "White House Green Building" exhibit, have raised money for a home that we are currently building for a Marine hero and his family with Operation Finally Home.

dream it. build it. love it.
