Custom Home Builder

At C.R. Browne Construction we focus on building custom homes through the best construction practices available today.  We incorporate modern building science, energy efficiency and custom details into every one of our homes to ensure high quality and customer satisfaction.

Along with building new homes, we’ve had the privilege of renovating older buildings.  We welcome complicated projects, as these challenges are often exciting to take part in.

"I first met Chris in 2014 when he took over as lead subcontractor in the construction of one of my favorite designs, bringing it to beautiful completion.  I am so glad he did.  Since that time he has been the GC on a number of my designs of varying styles, becoming without question one of my favorite "go to" builders.  Honest?  Check.  Fair pricing?  Check.  Attention to details?  Check.  Willing to learn and able to implement new construction techniques?  Check.  Great crew?  Check.  Easy for me as a designer to work with?  Check.  My clients love working with him?  Check.  He's a rare find and ought to be cloned so he can take on more of my projects.
