About Us

Build Locally – Supporting our neighbors for the past 35 years.
At Charlottesville Area Builders we believe in building relationships with local architects, realtors, suppliers, and tradesmen that will last a lifetime. We are proud to support our community by choosing skilled local businesses to partner with as we build your custom home. Though we operate in the Charlottesville, Albemarle area, our geographic scope reaches the six surrounding counties: Nelson, Greene, Madison, Orange, Louisa, and Fluvanna.

Thoughtful and Safe – We care about your health and the environment in which we build.
Charlottesville Area Builders has built hundreds of customized homes with decades of endurance and experience. Our company continues to grow on a single premise of trust, ensuring that every customer would refer us to their closest friend and to their own family. The highest standard of workmanship is implemented throughout construction as each of our qualified sub-contractors have been selected for their attention to detail and their commitment to excellence. Energy efficiency and Eco-Friendly resources are a top priority at Charlottesville. In addition to our green building knowledge, every CAB home owner appreciates our collaborative approach in providing thoughtful choices toward a healthier, lower-maintenance, eco-friendly, more energy-efficient, and safe home.

Certainty – It’s never been easier to love where you live.
We want your home build to be memorable for all the right reasons. We’ll provide you with a fixed price and build time certainty with no hidden extras. Everything you need to know will be thoughtfully laid out and explained upfront, so you’ll get as much clarity as possible. Every project, big or small, is completed with the same excellence and care that we use for our personal homes. We’ll devote as much time as it takes to build trust, understand your family’s needs and discover insights. Our team is committed to considering your goals and vision, and how they should influence your project. We stand behind our work and you can be certain that your CAB home will stand the test of time.

Flexibility – Exactly what you had in mind.
It’s your new home, so you’ll want it to reflect your tastes, your lifestyle and your budget. At CAB there’s a team of advocates on your side ready to help advise you on the many customization options that will make your dream home become a reality. Building your home just the way you like it is our primary goal, and we are flexible allowing for any changes you see fit along the way. Our motto at CAB is to be sure every single square foot is discussed and has a plan. We have a passion for building spaces that are perfectly suited to the individual style and needs of the owner. We believe that unrivaled customer service characterized by an unwavering commitment to quality home building is ingrained in our DNA.

Exciting – A truly rewarding experience.
Each CAB home is a personal reflection of who you are and how you live. Our designs and builds are constructed with individualized attention put together carefully balancing form, function and longevity in order to create a personalized solution for all of your residential needs. We enjoy building on your lot all sorts of architectural styles, for many different kinds of families with many different price ranges. Being a custom home builder means offering so much more than different paint colors, cabinet selections and flooring choices. We don’t work off a fixed set of floor plans, and we’re not limited to certain styles that we’ve done in the past. We are thrilled at the opportunity to try something completely new and different. CAB is excited and ready to provide your family with help every step of the way.
