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

My wife and I decided to work with David on our second new construction home. Our first new construction home was built with a large builder, and we will NEVER go that route again. We decided to go with David because of his lot development acumen as well as his attention to detail (something you just won’t get with the “big builders”). Every idea that my wife and I brought to the table, David and team was able to accomplish. Whether you’re going for more traditional features, or if you’re looking to add some unique flavor to your house, David does a great job at figuring out how to get things done! We have been very impressed with his follow-up after closing as well. When we used a large builder on our former project, we never heard from the builder after the home was closed on. Even on structural warranty issues, we had to follow up with the large builder several times before we could get something fixed. With David, it doesn’t matter if the issue is warranty related or not. If I need something fixed, I can reach him or any of his team members directly and know that the issue will be resolved within the week. Those “custom” homes may look like they cost a bit less, but they ended up costing us much more in the long run. Not to mention the hassle of following up over and over again just to get something as simple as a plumbing fixture leak fixed! Come on!! My wife and I couldn’t be happier with our decision to use Grayson Dare to build our home. They build quality construction, are extremely responsive, and they stand behind their work. I highly recommend using them to build your home!Read More

We couldn’t be happier about the house that Grayson Dare built for us. When we originally saw the listing, we loved the location and the neighborhood, but the proposed house design would have been too large for us. David was happy to work with us to design a house that was perfect for us, and he had so many great ideas that we never would have thought of on our own. David was such a pleasure to work with, always professional but also easy to talk to. There were a few small problems along the way, but David was great at reassuring us that each problem would be fixed – and then following through. He often took the time to explain what the issue was and why the problem happened, which I really appreciated. Jason, Barry, Bridgette, and Kristin were also very friendly and helpful, and we enjoyed working with the whole team at Grayson Dare. We did make a few small compromises to stay on track with the budget, but now I honestly don’t feel like our house is lacking anything. Last weekend was our first vacation out of town in over a year, and we actually decided to come home a day early because we both realized we’d rather spend that day in our own home than in the Airbnb where we were staying. Considering that we weren’t even planning to build a house before we saw the Grayson Dare listing, and we did very little research before deciding to go ahead with it, I am so thankful every day that we did! It’s not just the house, but the neighborhood, the shorter commute, the sense of community – this was definitely one of the best decisions we have ever made. I don’t know if we’ll ever build another house, because I can’t see us ever wanting to leave this one. But if we do, David would be the first person I would call.Read More

My second time building with this company and I am very satisfied with their level of commitment to give you the house you are dreaming of. They are great to work with with and strive to givenyou a great experience.Read More

We came across David Vines of Grayson Dare through his advertising a small in-fill project in downtown Cary, NC. He offered a house plan that fit us perfectly--3BR, 2 baths, single story, high and vaulted ceilings, with no wasted space in long hallways. Best of all, he offered to open up our living room to what would have been a window in an attic looking over the front street for $0 additional cost. So that room feels much larger than it is and gets all kinds of morning and South sunlight. He worked with us in designing the ceiling pitch in that room. He also shifted a ventless fireplace a bit to accomodate our desired media center, and constructed a built-in cabinet to house our favorite sliding drawers to hold cds. He opened up the kitchen to the living/dining room, and changed a planned breakfast room to a screened porch (giving us a $ credit). He willingly worked on other design issues. The house was built on time and on budget. The big negative we had was the flooring company he worked with that improperly installed a cork floor. We were left the task of forcing the contractor to replace the floor (only cost to us was to retain an attorney). All ended well, and the hardwood replacement floor is very nice. David is a conscientious builder and was responsive to our communications. We would hire him again and would recommend him to friends.Read More

David is a talented builder with a great eye for design. He's able to execute a design that fits the look and feel of what you want in your new home. I told him what I wanted, sent him some pictures and he came up with a design which went back and forth with revisions. This back and forth process on the design was not at all rushed, and was not over until I was completely satisfied. The end result is that I am living in a home that feels like I am on somewhere I prefer to be all the time. I love the space and the built-ins he put into the house. There was a part of the house I wanted designed very particularly and he did a great job. When the initial design for that door did not work they replaced it with a better mechanism that was perfect. Everyone who has been to my house thinks it is very nice--and it is. I explained what I wanted (something like a New England Farmhouse) and he totally got it. I couldn't be happier. Basically he took my ideas and was able to execute them into physical reality--and the result was great. The work is of very high quality. The reason for the four instead of five stars was some of the things that took place during the process, which don't feel like big issues now at all but I think need to be mentioned. The software they use, called co-construct, is very poorly designed and time consuming to use. Co-construct is typical of professional softwares in which there is simply little or no competition for products and thus doesn't have to work well. Second, the budget was not well explained and there were errors in the end. Third, David himself was very nice and was easy to communicate with, but his chief person on the ground was sometimes rude and hard to communicate with. The rest of his crew--particularly the person who dealt with most of the day to day things with me, as well as the repairs that followed after the house was built, was very pleasant. In the scheme of things these were little issues. The major point is that I got a very nice house built. I would highly recommend Grayson Dare.Read More
