At Highmark, we understand that bringing the vision of your custom-built home to life will take focus, commitment and many important decisions. We’re committed to doing everything possible to help make building your new home a positive and inspiring experience. Our designs compliment your lifestyle by combining impressive included and optional features with fine materials throughout your home. Our reliable network of contractors includes specialists in every aspect of home construction. From foundation to roof and – everything in between, there exists a very keen focus on detail.

Excellence in craftsmanship

Other than construction quality and design, the most significant element that separates the custom home building process from standard construction is a higher level of detail. This same characteristic separates Highmark Custom Home Bulders from many other builders, whether on the job or in the office. Our uncompromising attention to detail makes an extremely complex process go as smoothly as possible, from the first day to the last.

Attention to detail


It’s your Home. It’s the culmination of years of your hard work. It’s your dream and your retreat. It’s where you enjoy the quality moments of your life. Building your custom home in the HRM should be among those moments.

Our process for taking your custom home from an idea to a reality is unlike any you’ll find. We have spent years developing a highly systemized approach to every aspect of the custom home building process. From lot analysis to design, through selections, and on to construction and closing.

It's more than a house

Every Highmark Custom Built Home comes stocked top to bottom with custom-built advantages, which you can further customize to meet your individual needs and lifestyle. Each step of the building process is quality controlled and follows detailed procedures. This means a Highmark Home will have over 400 quality control checks from start to finish. We stand behind our product and process with a comprehensive LUX Home Warranty for your peace of mind.

Quality Built Custom Homes

The result is a building experience that is as exciting and rewarding as the final product. It’s one of the many reasons Highmark Custom Home Builders has been recommended by many satisfied customers.
