About EDK Design-Build

Founded in 2015, EDK Design Build was formed out of a passion for people and a desire to build quality homes for our clients. We recognize a home is so much more than a house. A home is the place where families come together and lifelong memories are made. We work with you to create a space that will be an expression of yourself so that you can connect with those most important in your life. By partnering with us, you will have a company that understands the importance of quality construction, good communication and a building process that is proven to be effective. While building, at times, can admittedly be stressful, our team utilizes our unique gifts and talents to work together and make this process one you can enjoy. We look forward to building a home that you can enjoy for a lifetime!
