Construction of Your Dream Home Begins Now
At Cornerstone Construction, we are eager to help our clients bring their dream houses to life. Our custom home builders can help residents of the Fort Valley, VA, region bring the home of their dreams to life. Leave the heavy lifting to us!
In offering custom services, our team caters to each client’s wishes and preferences in their new construction home. However, we also suggest features, textures, and visual elements to invigorate their designs.
Our Customer-Centered Process
We begin with introductory consultations to discuss plans and specifications for a new house based on the client's preferences, blueprints, and available land. This initial meeting allows us to put together an extensive scope of work and a firm price.
Plan & Estimate
Next, the Cornerstone team outlines the new construction home project. Doing so entails drafting a budget, finalizing the plans from the engineer, starting on the permit process, refining accessory features, and more. Cornerstone will put you in touch with an engineer who can help you realize your dream house design. Once these plans are in place, Cornerstone will submit them to the county for approval.
Construction & Refinement
With plans and permit in hand, the heavy lifting begins. Customers can sit back and watch their dream house rise from the ground. Our team will provide a timeline before we get to work so that you know what to expect.
Now for the best part: the finished project. As a family-owned and operated business, we put care and attention into every floorboard, window, and inch of your space. We guarantee you’ll love your new construction home for years to come.

“We were thrilled with both the design and the craftsmanship of the project of finishing our basement which Cornerstone completed for us. It turned out beautiful and functional for our needs. Marty and his team were considerate of our kids and their interest in the project and communicated their schedule and progress to us regularly. We will definitely be using Cornerstone Construction for our future home renovation needs!“
“Cornerstone Construction delivered a beautiful sunroom addition with a fantastic experience. The communication was excellent—at various times we worked with Chris, Sam, and Nick. Information passed among them without my seeing it; whoever was here knew what was going on, did the work that was promised, and kept me apprised of next steps.
All of the staff were extremely respectful and helpful. They are truly a pleasure to work with!”
“We hired Cornerstone Construction to build a large addition on our home which included a new kitchen bump out, added a master bathroom and second new bathroom along with mudroom suite at the front of the house.

What do I need to know before buying land to build a home?

You can research plans online or work with an engineer to generate your design or some combination of the two. As for finishes, siding, roof type, color, interior elements, and so on, you can decide based on your taste and budget!
Can we make changes to our custom home during the building process?
Yes! As long as they are not significant structural changes and materials have not been purchased, we can change things up at no cost—as long as it does not exceed the allowance outlined in your contract.
How long will my custom home build take from design to completion?
From breaking ground to moving in could last anywhere from 9-12 months, depending on your project’s size, finishes, and possible material/supplier delays.
