There is a right way to do it.

Dunning's Design-Build Process

A one of a kind approach to match a vision that’s uniquely you.

1. Building a roadmap to your dream.

John Dunning’s hands-on approach and keen eye put you in the driver’s seat of your custom home build. Watch your vision take shape through detailed design exploration and meticulous consultation.  

2. Making sure the shoe fits.

Including your builder during the purchasing of property is vital to keeping the pre-construction vision aligned with the final results. Tackling property logistics upfront ensures there are no surprises after ground-breaking.

3. Putting pen to paper.

The drafting process isn’t meant for just the architects. The Dunning team insists on assessing plans in advance to ensure designs are within your target your budget and vision.

4. Adding the bells & whistles.

Product selections should be made diligently, yet in a timely manner to avoid construction delays. Count on the craftsman at Dunning to recommend quality, affordable products and unique aesthetic solutions.

5. Collaborating clearly throughout.

Exceptional client service is at the heart of Dunning Custom Homes and one of the many advantages to working with agile team. Expect one-on-one support and regular access to the team during the entire process.

17 years of service with many more to come.

For the last 17 years, we have enjoyed success in providing unique luxury homes and home renovations for our owners, as well as maintaining strong relations long after. We are comfortable building custom homes on individual properties or within one of our community settings.

Living in the Triangle area of North Carolina provides many benefits. As a long time resident in the Chapel Hill, Chatham County area, we have been able to enjoy these right along with our owners. Dunning Custom Homes takes great pride in being part of this community and we expect to help welcome many more residents in the coming years.

Belonging to the Green Home Builders of the Triangle (GHBT) allows us to provide expertise in delivering green certified homes as well. Our goals have been to provide a product all craftsmen would appreciate and a home that lives efficiently.

Kind words from our clients.
