About Us

You’d be hard-pressed to find a custom home builder in Knoxville that rivals Turner Custom Homes in experience and quality. With nearly 50 years under our belts, we bring expertise from building entire new home communities directly to those looking for a custom home built right, on time, and on budget. Turner Custom Homes specializes in building homes, not houses. We work with clients to achieve their unique vision and deliver truly one-of-a-kind custom homes. We’re a local company. And because we call Knoxville home, we work hard to ensure that each new custom home upholds the integrity we’ve established here since 1971. We’re always able to hold our heads high when we see our homeowners around town, because we take pride in the work we put into each and every custom home.

CRAFTSMANSHIP

We pride ourselves in building homes of high-quality design and artistry, and doing so with great passion and attention to detail. Craftsmanship is something that is practiced and refined over the course of many years, and we’ve worked nearly 50 years to refine our craft. Houses are built by hand, and it takes a true mastery of craftsmanship to build a dream home.

DESIGN

Design is the purpose, planning, and intention behind a home. Thoughtful design is the difference between a house and a home. Beauty and functionality must both be present and work together to create a space that will thrive. Our team utilizes a skilled registered interior designer who carefully helps our clients design a masterpiece.

INTEGRITY

We hold ourselves to a high standard of honesty and integrity. We strive to always do the right thing by our clients, even if that means taking more time and effort to do things the right way. We use communication as a tool to be transparent and collaborate with clients along the entire homebuilding process.
