Frequently Asked Questions

Should we go ahead and choose a builder before we have house plans?

Once you have made the decision to build, it is better to bring them "on board" earlier rather than later because there are always several ways to do anything and you want their input while the architect is designing your house or renovation.  Their input could save time and money on the project.

How long will it take to build my new home or renovation?

Small renovations can take anywhere from a few weeks and extensive renovations can take a good portion of a year. Building a house rarely will take less than 7 months and if the house is very large and complex it can take over a year.

How do you compare with other builders?

Memphis has many fine builders, but the key is to find one with whom you feel you can work and is willing to listen to your desires. Our company has built many fine homes and complex renovations in the Memphis area. We have done jobs as small as single bathrooms and as large as multi-million dollar homes.

How do we handle changes during the construction process?

Changes will absolutely occur on a regular basis, and that is one thing that sets us apart from some other builders. We truly are very patient and understand that we are working for you and the only way you will be completely satisfied with the end result is if it the way you want it. Changes do cost money and it will be passed but the end result will be worth it.

Are you a member of the Better Business Bureau and what about references?

We have an A+ rating with the BBB and have never had a complaint filed.  We also are a registered builder of the Memphis Area Home Builders Association. We will proudly give a long list of references both from past clients and suppliers.

What is your specialty?

Our forte is custom construction whether it is a renovation or custom home.  We enjoy working closely with either a client, their interior decorator or their architect, and sometimes it is necessary to pull ideas from all of theabove to get things just right.

What Our Clients Say

"I highly recommend Matt Olson to anyone who may have contracting needs. I have had the privilege of knowing Matt for the past fifteen years. He is a man of honesty, integrity who can be trusted with all of the details, financial and construction, of a given project. In the winter of 2012, I was out of the country for ten days when a pipe broke in the ceiling of my home. Matt stepped into my situation and completed the restoration project on time and on budget. I am thankful for his friendship and expertise. " – Rev. J. Edward Norton See more »
