Raving Fans: We wouldn’t be Zenith without our customers, and we do the work we do to make them happy. If they aren’t raving fans of us at the end of a project, we haven’t done our job properly.

We don’t sugarcoat around here. We believe in being transparent about everything from our process to the pricing. You never have to question if you’re being told the whole story.
The world of residential remodeling and custom home building has a lot of ups and downs for both the customer and the builder. We keep this in mind as we work through the design + build process, and we’ve always got our customers’ backs.
Plain and simple, we own what we do. We take ownership of all our projects. We’re proud of the work we do, and we own that too.
We’re all about keeping it positive and seeing the good in things! We’re a pretty fun bunch, and keeping it positive keeps us that way.
Building a custom home is a process that is worth it in the end. Zenith makes it easier by helping you make all the selection choices and keeping you up-to-date on the status of your project.
The price of a custom home depends on the lot price, the home size, and the materials used. Not including the lot, our custom homes typically begin around $400,000.
Most custom home projects take between 4 and 8 months to complete once construction begins.
While there may be some relatively expensive parts of building a home, like purchasing the lot and the materials, it is all worth it in the end when you have the home of your dreams!
