What Is Custom Home Construction?

best-in-class workmanship

Custom home construction can entail building a residence from scratch or upgrading a high-end property with additions or finishes that help it to reach its full potential. For Atlanta homeowners that demand best-in-class workmanship, the luxury contractors at the Dernehl company are at your service. We can bring your vision to reality, in every corner of your property.


We have installed pools, cabanas, outdoor kitchens and patios, and so much more. Hardscape features, such as circular driveways, reflecting pools, or even creating a space for your magnificent rose garden are also within reach.


Kitchens have a major impact on a home’s worth. Not only should your luxury kitchen be stylish and comfortable, but it should also be designed with durable materials and five-star appliances. Our kitchen builds keep beauty and utility in mind.


Like kitchens, a well-appointed bath can have a tremendous impact on your property value. A bathroom is more than a place to do your business. Our luxury baths serve as relaxing retreats when they are properly designed and outfitted with high-end materials and finishes.
