American Heritage Homes is a custom home builder focused on your lot construction. That means we are a home builder who will build a home on your land. We don’t develop land or carry an inventory of lots to build on, but we work with customers who have purchased land or are actively looking to buy a lot and build a custom home within the Greater Central Ohio MSA.

The company was founded in 1995 by Bill Crum and Gary Libertini. Since then, American Heritage Homes has not only built thousands of custom homes throughout Central Ohio – but also gained a reputation as a custom home builder providing quality homes at an exceptional price.

Bill and Gary thought long and hard about a name when the company was first established. Finally, they chose American Heritage Homes because of the craftsmanship and personal dedication found in early American homes. They believe that the name – American Heritage Homes – inspires everyone involved in constructing your home to live up to the legacy of early American builders. There is no fanfare, streamers, or confetti patronizing your values, just hard work and dedication designed to provide you with the best building experience.

Local, Hands-On Craftsmanship

While our name sounds like it belongs to a big nationwide corporation, we are a locally owned and operated company accountable to our clients and not some faraway board of directors or investors. In fact, as a customer, you will undoubtedly interact personally with Bill and Gary. They are hands-on in the company’s daily operations, not just names on a website. These “sticks and bricks” guys approach home building focused on the house and how it’s built. Everything that goes into each home is carefully considered for its value and longevity. At American Heritage Homes, it’s more about the house and the customers’ needs than the numbers or the bottom line.
