The Blueprint for Something Greater

meet tom dillard.

In 2003, Tom Dillard launched his company as a small, family-owned and operated luxury, custom home builder. A Clemson University graduate with a degree in mechanical engineering, Tom brought his knowledge of construction, management, business leadership, and community involvement to the table. Inspired by a love for extraordinary beauty, defined by sophisticated style, and anchored with uncompromising quality and attention to detail, Tom’s desire was to distance the company from the status quo in the market. He refused to be defined as just another luxury builder.

At the time, a void existed among luxury home builders between the clients and the contractors hired to construct their home. This void saw a communication and process breakdown which, for most homeowners, ended in costly mistakes and sub-par quality in construction. This is why we built our company with a “client-first” focus.

Today, we’ve not only improved our approach, but we’ve perfected it. You’ll know a Dillard-Jones home when you see it. Otherwise, we wouldn’t put our signature on it.

That’s our legacy.

it’s much more personal to us.

Crafting a home is a balance of both art and science. It’s about more than just architectural plans, home specs, and luxury materials. Your home is the ultimate expression of who you are.

It requires empathy, emotion and a certain level of intuition to truly build something unique. Because of this, the process is very personal and intimate.

For nearly 20 years our family has grown to include some of the most talented architects, designers, and building professionals. We’ve never lost the personal connection with our clients. Our singular purpose remains—to create a vision of home without compromise. Our commitment to excellence is not only raising the standard among other luxury builders. It IS the standard.

Distinguished Living For Discerning Tastes.

Our homes are a mark of distinction. By definition, our home designs are unique, one of a kind—something you do not see in every home you enter. Every home we build is truly custom and not just an alteration on of a design or plan we’ve built previously. We consider each room a “living” space that reflects the desires and character of its owner and we treat it as such. We are as meticulous as we are creative and it shows in the end result.
