The Distinction

Helen Scott Custom Builders’ roots date back to 1968. As a family-owned and operated builder, which is now in its 2nd generation of ownership, the company has built a reputation of excellence by providing the highest level of quality and service to its clients seeking residential custom home building and remodeling.

Decades later, our team remains dedicated to providing an exceptionally rewarding experience for our clients. Each building project is tailored to fit the individual needs and budget of the client. When you choose to work with us, you can be confident that you will receive the same level of service and craftsmanship no matter the size of your project.


Our respect and passion for building means so much more to us than drawing floor plans and hammering nails.  It means using quality materials, not cutting corners, and demanding the same level of service and quality from our sub-contractors as we do ourselves.  We make sure these standards are met in every home we built.


Our reputation has been built on maintaining the highest standards of honesty, dependability, and professionalism – all while delivering a finished product of impeccable quality.  Because of these values, we have been able to foster strong and lasting relationships with our team and our clients alike – resulting in a satisfying experience for all.


Whether it be our integrity, unparalleled craftsmanship, or outstanding customer service, we aim to set the standard for building.  From conception to completion, it is our responsibility to understand your expectations and provide you with options that fit your needs within the confines of your budget – all the while providing you with excellent customer service.  We truly want you to love the experience as much as you love your new home

The Process



We’ll begin by having a conversation to get a sense of your vision, ideal timeline, and preferred budget. This information will help us determine where you are in your process and where we can help you.


We don’t believe in a “one size fits all”. Each home will be uniquely designed to work for you and/or your family. We welcome you to bring photos or designs of homes you love, or we can start from scratch. We will ultimately work with a designer to bring your visions to life.

Project Bidding & Contract

Once your design is finalized, we will prepare a highly detailed estimate of your project. We will do our best to incorporate every known cost for completing your project. If the price is agreeable to you, we will move forward to signing a contract.


Building a home is truly a collaborative effort. Once your contract has been signed, you will meet with our entire time to discuss the next steps of your project in order to ensure that the job will run smoothly and without delays.


Your project manager will oversee every aspect of the work being performed at your home. Our team and sub-contractors are committed to providing the highest quality of work, as well as customer satisfaction.

This is the day you’ve been waiting for! We will do a final walk-through with you to address any final questions, concerns, or punch list items before we hand over your new keys.

What our clients are saying...

I am not sure if you hear this very much from others (hopefully you do), but building our house with everyone at Helen Scott Builders has been an absolute fantastic experience for both of us! We are having such a wonderful time building our dream home with you. It seems like most of the people we talk to cringe at the thought of building a house. Maybe we are the exception, but this has been such an easy and fun process. We truly feel that this is largely in part because: 1) You obviously build quality and beautiful homes as has been seen in all of the open houses you have held in the past; 2) The process that has been set up to assist us through the build has made things very easy to plan and prepare ourselves; and 3) The most important aspect of your success - the AWESOME people that are in place to oversee the entire project from start to finish!

We have been very fortunate to have had time to meet and interact with almost everyone that has been a part of building our dream home. Every single person we have met has been overly friendly and helpful to us so far. Even if we have some crazy ideas, or show up to a meeting lacking sleep and acting a little goofy, the professionalism and guidance along the way has been such a huge help!

From the moment we met Scott and his team at HSCB, we knew we were in the right place and had found our builder. We came to HSCB in transition and with some drawings from a previous architect. When Scott and his team started to review the drawings and ask questions about our dreams and goals, it was clear they wanted to provide everything we hoped for in a financially responsible manner.

The team worked with us through some crazy issues with our property and were nothing but understanding and supportive. Then, when we finally got to the house building, it was nothing but fun! Anne became like part of our family trying to understand our style and helping us through selections. Scott G. and Matt were always available for our questions and concerns with quick follow-up.

We have talked with many friends and families that all have shared stories of shortcomings with their build or builders. We honestly can say that we can’t think of one issue that upset us or that we would say was a problem. We are elated and HSCB has made our dream come true!

We were first introduced to Scott Strayer by a former client who raved about him and his company – HSCB. Since we first spoke to Scott, he has made us feel like we were his only clients. We reached out to several builders when we first started this adventure, and Scott was the only one who made us feel important by always being available to speak and promptly returning our calls or e-mails. As we progressed through the lengthy and detailed process, Scott was very forthcoming and had professional advice. It is safe to say that his knowledge, organized approach, and experience made what could have been an overwhelming ordeal, simple and enjoyable.

Fast forwarding to the ground-breaking milestone, his ability to manage his team was exemplary. His suppliers, co-workers, and customers all gave unsolicited compliments about how Scott treats and empowers them to do the right thing. His focus on ‘building it right’ was clearly visible at all points during our project, and we could not be more thrilled with the end result.

The saddest point of our projects was knowing that when it was completed, we would not get to work with Scott and his team on a regular basis. During our project, they became an extended part of our family. I am not sure how many clients can say that about their builder, but I am sure it is very few.

This testimony is far too short to fully articulate how highly we regard Scott and HSCB.

In addition to a highly skilled leadership team, the quality of sub-contractors that HSCB uses is impressive. Their neatness and attention to detail exceeded our expectations.

I have already recommended HSCB to several people. The staff was very easy to work with. They were knowledgeable of the process and always quickly answered any questions or concerns that I had. Everyone said that building a home is stressful. I did not experience that with this company. The staff at HSCB were like a family to me. They were very thorough and guided me through the process. We love our new home. It is beautiful!
