Atchison Heller provides an expert approach to building and creating your dream home.

Initial Meeting

At our first meeting, we will share information about our design-build process, talk about your project and answer any questions you may have.

Design proposal

Designing your custom home starts with the right team. Our team, will develop a Design Proposal specific to your lifestyle and your lot.

The process starts with a design proposal. Atchison Heller asks detailed questions, and then carefully listens to what you want and the needs of your family. We make sure you get what’s most important to you while staying true to the architecture and style of the home and your budget.

Feasibility Study

As part of the Design Proposal, Atchison Heller will create a cost estimate to ensure the project is feasible for your chosen budget.

As an experienced builder Atchison Heller can bring knowledge of cost-effectiveness that assists in getting the best design for the topography or unique lot conditions. And, you will have all the information up front to make the right decision for you and your family.

Finalize the Plans

Once we have an approved design, it’s your turn to start dreaming. While our team is developing the structural plans, electrical and roofing plans, etc, you will be making your selections.

Completing the plans typically takes between 3 to 6 months, depending on how much time you can devote to working with our architecture and design team to finalize the design and make your selections.

Break Ground

As we move to construction, you already have a thorough understanding of how the home will look and what will be in it. Now, it is simply a matter of making a few final decisions and watching your construction team make it a reality.

Once permits are obtained, we break ground and construction begins. Throughout the construction of your home, Atchison Heller provides comprehensive inspections and quality assurance on a daily basis with your site supervisor.

The Atchison Heller mission is to provide the highest quality and value in construction services available. That is why we believe so passionately that a well-planned home designed and implemented by the right Team is so important. 

It begins with our initial meeting and continues throughout the entire construction process during face-to-face interaction. Building a Team around our clients that is focused and tuned into the client’s wants and needs is crucial to our 5-Star Approach. Open communication builds trust, and we stand behind our services and our craftsmen—welcoming every client to tell us if they don’t feel they’re receiving five-star services at any point so we can make it right.

Our goal is to build relationships with our clients that last a lifetime. Their home is a permanent reflection of our company and our building standards for generations to come. We work to provide the quality they need and the transparency they want. Atchison Heller raises the bar and sets new standards in home construction and remodeling—not just with our craftsmanship, but with our building practices, too. We consider what works for the family and the budget so the best product selections are made not just for the present, but also long-term. Our Quality Control Director ensures the quality process is followed on every job. We are so confident in our work that we include a two-year warranty on every home.

Lastly, we believe in giving back to the community that has been so good to us. That is why we have a strong commitment to local organizations such as Lexington Rescue Mission, Child Advocacy Center of the Bluegrass, Hope Center, Jubilee Jobs of Lexington, Young Life, Markey Cancer Center, Red Cross and Kentucky United Methodist Home. At Atchison Heller, you’ll see that we strive to be a model organization in all that we do for our customers, our subcontractors and our industry.
