Southern Traditions, LLC is a residential construction company founded in 2003 by Robert and Megan Carter.
Robert has over 20 years of experience in the construction industry.After graduating with a Bachelor of Science in Building Construction from Virginia Tech, he spent 10 years working for one of the nation’s largest builders. His experience includes all aspects of residential homebuilding from design to construction, from quality control to purchasing, and from hands-on work to upper level management. Capitalizing on this experience, Robert and Megan launched Southern Traditions to be able to provide customers with unique home designs that feature classic Southern architecture and high quality throughout.
Elaine Reeder joined the Southern Traditions team in 2005, bringing many years of experience in different facets of residential home construction to the company. She helps with scheduling contractors and sure the projects stay on track. Elaine is pivotal in helping our customers keep up with the many product selections they make during the custom homebuilding process, such as cabinets, plumbing and lighting fixtures, and paint colors to name a few.
The latest additions to the Southern Traditions came in 2010. Jerry Kipp joined the company as Construction Manager, and oversees the day to day field operations as well as keeping a close eye on quality control. With 30 years of experience in commercial and residential construction, Jerry is a valuable addition to the company, and with his expertise we have started doing several remodel and renovation projects per year to supplement our custom home building. Trent Sherman also came on board towards the end of 2010 to serve as our Sales Manager, after serving in the same capacity for Mountcastle Homes for over 18 years. We are very fortunate to have Trent working for us and using his experience to improve our product portfolio and gain new clientele.
Southern Traditions currently builds in Hanover, Henrico, Chesterfield, New Kent, Goochland, James City and Lancaster Counties, building custom homes from $300,000 to over One Million. We build twelve to fifteen homes per year, keeping our number of projects manageable so we can focus on the details, and give a high level of attention to each home. Robert prides himself with being on site every workday to oversee every aspect of construction and to interact closely with contractors and customers.
We believe the homebuilding process should be a pleasure, not a pain. We see it as a partnership between the homebuyer and the homebuilder, not as a competition.
Don’t settle for ordinary, when you can have the extraordinary. Bring us a plan, or let us design your dream home from the ground up. We want to be your builder!
Southern Traditions has featured homesites in Creekside & Forest Creek, The Oaks, and The Woodlands, and is offering a selection of home plans for each neighborhood. Southern Traditions can also custom design a home to match your lifestyle.
