Two custom homes built in downtown Columbus, Franklinton.

Thoughtful Design for Urban Living

We took on the challenge to build not just one but two stunning custom homes in Franklinton, a neighborhood located west of downtown Columbus.  From the sleek lines of The Heights to the classic charm of The Franklin, both of these custom homes are a testament to thoughtful design coupled with urban living. Considerable attention to site logistics, ensuring minimal disruption to neighboring properties, and prioritizing the safety of passers-by, underscores the thoughtful planning behind designing and building these new custom homes.  We take pride in contributing to the revitalization of this wonderful arts community through the creation of these two distinctive custom homes.
