Dillard-Jones works with clients in a collaborative manner to design and build legacy-quality, custom crafted homes, while maintaining our high-performance home standards. Our team of architects, designers, interior designers, and build professionals guide you through every step of the way.

As a custom home builder, we have the pleasure of building in several upscale communities in Upstate South Carolina and Western North Carolina, including the seven Cliffs communities, The Ramble Biltmore Forest, The Reserve at Lake Keowee, and more.

While we are the preferred builder in many luxury communities, we have the honor of being this area’s Southern Living Custom Builder member, and have won countless awards for quality and design. Our reputation is only as good as the experience every client has while building—this is what drives us to deliver a relentless amount of client service, require perfection, and operate with integrity and transparency in all we do.
