Let's Build Your Dream Home

Hawthorn Builders is a well-respected name in the residential construction industry.  The formula to our success is our relentless attention to detail, our exceptional customer service and our devotion to quality.  We emphasize open communication with our clients throughout our custom projects, and our homes feature the finest craftsmanship and materials in the market.  We guarantee our clients’ complete satisfaction with their design-build or renovation experience.  

New Homes & Renovations

Our new homes and renovations are custom designed and tailored to our clients’ specifications and budget.  We source properties directly in our community, and often work with prospective customers well in advance of securing a site to develop.  We also engage with clients who have already purchased a property or are redeveloping or renovating their existing home.  Our proven process encompasses all phases of the design-build process beginning with initial concepts and continuing through to the final finishing touches.  As seasoned experts in residential home development, we have the experience and resources necessary to address the diverse styles and expectations of our client base.

Elegant Design

Whether the scope is basic built-in sketches, a new kitchen or a full set of construction plans, the design phase is the essential first step in any successful development project.  Hawthorn Builders’ Design team draws from decades of experience in all aspects of home renovation and construction.  Many of our design clients are committed to a longer term design-build project with our firm, but we also work with homeowners or prospective customers who are in the early stages of developing ideas for their project – whether it is two story addition, a new home or a kitchen/bath remodel.  We help our clients define their scope to match their vision with their budget.

When it comes to discussing lighting (FUN!), we are used to hearing the term “wattage” as a means of describing light bulbs and the strength of the fixture. However, with the increase of LED fixtures as mainstream, this has brought a whole new ‘light’ to the terminology – see what I did there?  There is a new way to gauge electrical output: Lumens.  Lumens measure brightness, whereas wattage is actually the amount of electricity used by the lightbulb or fixture.  In the past, we would recommend 120 watts as an efficient amount of lighting for an average bedroom, whi

Making the Team Better

At Hawthorn one of our core values is to make the team better. This ideal can be interpreted in many ways, but for us, the team isn’t just the Hawthorn staff. We think our clients and our vendors are part of the team too. Why is that so important? When building a home, there are a lot of moving parts, decisions, and coordination that go into the process. Just like an engine, if one of the parts is not functioning properly, the whole process breaks down. That is why is so important to have the builder, client, subcontractors and vendors all working together. If one of those team member
