Grayson Dare Homes was born from the idea of a different home building experience. I started Grayson Dare Homes, named for my two daughters, after spending way too many years in the BIG BUILDER world. Don't get me wrong, they do a great job of getting a lot of space for the money, but they do it by stripping away the very essence of what a home should be.

Your home should be an expression of you and your family. It should speak of your personality, your taste, your family, and how you like to live. It doesn't have to be expensive, large, or ornate. It should simply be an expression of you.

That's what we offer at Grayson Dare. A home designed for you, with you, for just how you live.

Consumers have been brainwashed into thinking that building a new home is like buying a car...three models, four colors, which one do you want? But it doesn't have to be that way.

Here's a challenge, close your eyes and dream of the most comfortable family room you can imagine. You see yourself relaxing on the sofa. Does is have a fireplace? Lots of windows? How about a French door? You have just started on the journey of designing YOUR new home!

Let Grayson Dare translate your vision into reality, then enjoy the beautiful expression of you and your life that is your home, for years to come!

Dare to dream...

Client Testimonials

Grayson Dare was our 2nd go round with a builder. The staff were all very personable and seemed genuinely interested in making our experience a comfortable one given our previous issue with another builder. I think they were upfront and honest. We had budget constraints but they definitely helped us choose options in our home that we would be comfortable with. I am pleased and happy with the beautiful home that we now live in. I have recommended Grayson Dare to friends of mine. We've been in the house a few months now and with any problem or question their office is always quick to respond to me. I especially appreciate their prompt service even after the house is built.Read More

Grayson Dare Homes helped us design and build our dream home. After talking with numerous home design/build firms, we really clicked with David and his design sensibilities. The entire staff and crew were great throughout the whole process. They sweat the details. The result is an incredible home and we couldn't be happier. We don't plan to ever do this again, but if we do, we'll get Grayson Dare to do it.Read More

I love, love LOVE my home built by Grayson-Dare. I gave David a drawing of my floor plan and a drawing of my living room. Not only did he design what was in my head, he improved upon it. Their attention to detail is fantastic. I have the exact home I always dreamed of!Read More

I want to thank David and everyone at Grayson Dare for the wonderful job on our new home. Our home had burned down and it was a very emotional project. David took my design and built exactly what we wanted.Read More

We particularly liked the design phase of our new home. David Vines is a wiz at taking ideas and translating them into an innovative final home,Read More
