A Passion for Building Better.

Owner Ted Cillis has been building homes for over 30 years and in the process has mastered all the skills needed to builda superb home, from excavating and framing to plumbing and electrical.

At Cillis we believe quality is the true measure of a great homebuilder and making a perfect home matters more than just making a house you can live in.

Ted is hands-on. So if you have a question, he’ll answer it. If you have a problem, he’ll work hard to solve it. If you have a suggestion, he’ll listen to it.

Whether it’s a new home in one of our communities, a remodel or addition, or a home on your buyer-owned lot, we take the time to understand your needs and vision.

We’ll approach the construction of your home as if it were our own. Cillis standard features are anything but standard. We’ll do the job right because we’ll do whatever it takes —so you’re happy in the end.

Ted is passionate about doing quality work for you that will last a lifetime. And that’s why we pride ourselves on receiving referrals from people like you.

There’s nothing like experience; from small to big, from simple to extravagant, we continue to do it to perfection.

Because everything we do — is built around you.
