Kevin and the Poythress Construction staff made our first-time home building experience stress-free and enjoyable. Kevin was always prompt and accommodating when responding to our questions. There are a lot of custom home builder choices in the Triangle area. We choose to work with Kevin because of his excellent design taste, attention to detail, and reputation. We also felt that we could trust Kevin because of his choice to use high-quality building materials. The construction schedule was strictly followed and as a result, we had the benefit of moving into our new home a few weeks early! Any issues that we have had since moving in have been resolved quickly. Kevin exceeded our expectations and overall, we could not be more thrilled with the final product. We would highly recommend Poythress Construction to any of our friends and family.

Two words come immediately to mind when thinking about the building experience with Kevin Poythress: listening and responsiveness. Kevin listened very carefully to us throughout the process, from our big picture ideas down to the very smallest details. As a result, he was able to transform the vision we had for our home into reality. We are still pinching ourselves that we live in such a beautifully designed and crafted Poythress home in The Oaks at Fallon Park. Beyond listening, Kevin has been incredibly responsive throughout the building process — before, during and maybe most importantly, after the construction process was complete. He has been extremely conscientious in helping us complete the few small details that remained after closing. His set of contractors and vendors respond quickly and efficiently to his requests, even to the most minor details. Kevin always immediately answers phone calls, emails and even texts. If you want a true ‘partner’ in the building process, you simply cannot go wrong with Kevin Poythress. We would be happy to provide a more personal testimonial to anyone thinking about building with him.

We are more than satisfied with our new home from Poythress Construction. We hired this company because of its reputation as a quality home builder and were very surprised because the quality was superior to anything we expected. The whole process was pleasant: from the architect, to the subcontractors, to the suppliers — they were all professional, detail-oriented and hardworking. The end product is a beautiful, well-constructed, highly functional and comfortable new home. Kevin Poythress was always easy to talk to whenever the topic was good or bad, and he was patient with us when we dragged our feet. He said he could get it done in a certain time frame, and he was right on it. We cannot imagine a project of this magnitude ever being a better experience than we had with Poythress Construction.

We are so thankful for the opportunity we had in building our dream home with you. From the very beginning, you set our minds at ease by reassuring us you could build a contemporary home in a typically traditional style neighborhood and city. You actively listened to us throughout the entire process, starting with our design ideas, and steered us in the right direction when we asked for advice. Your thoughtful guidance, diligent communication and follow-through was stellar. Our home reflects our vision because of your willingness to collaborate with us every step of the way. We were impressed, too, with your organization, which helped keep us on track regarding timely decisions and selections. We also appreciated your can-do attitude and attention to quality and detail. The incredible custom mill work, unique staircase, spectacular details throughout the kitchen and master bath, and open floor plan concept continue to impress us every day. We are so grateful that we selected you as our builder. It was a true joy to work with you, and we look forward to spending many happy years in our beautiful custom home, thanks to you!

If you are looking for a home builder who offers honest business practices, commitment to quality, and great customer service, then look no further than Kevin Poythress. My wife and I felt more at ease with Kevin than we did with the other builders we interviewed, and after hearing nothing but glowing reviews from his recent clients, we knew he was our guy. He built our amazing custom home in exactly the six months he promised at a very fair price. During the home building process, it was obvious Kevin is a perfectionist. He personally oversees the entire project and would fix anything he or I wanted done differently without hesitation. He is also the point-of-contact for any questions or concerns and is promptly responsive to phone calls, emails and text messages. The great service doesn’t stop when he gives you the keys. We have been in our home for six months, and Kevin continues to take care of any questions that come up. This review could go on and on, but the bottom line is: if you have any doubt that you should build your dream home with Kevin Poythress, just pick up the phone and talk with any of his past clients, including me, about their experiences. His track record of beautiful homes and happy customers should give you all the confidence you need.

Poythress Construction Co. built my house a little over a year ago. Kevin Poythress was fantastic to work with. He gave me his full attention, addressed any concerns I had, was flexible — even helped me do the walk through before closing. Over the past year, any minor issues have been promptly addressed, and I love my home. I would recommend Poythress Construction to anyone who wants a high-quality, beautiful home with great attention to detail.

– Carol Scott (Closed 10.14.10)


Building long distance can be a very stressful event. However, everyone at Poythress Construction Company has made this experience easy and enjoyable. Throughout the building process, we were continuously updated on the progress of our home. In addition, any concern we had was immediately addressed professionally and to our satisfaction. We absolutely love our new home. The construction is outstanding with expert attention given to every detail. It is with tremendous confidence and pleasure that we recommend Poythress Construction Company. We have built several houses in the past. Never has a builder provided us with such a wonderful product (our fabulous new home) in such a positive and comfortable manner. We could not be more thrilled!

I just wanted to send a quick note to let you know that we have been extremely satisfied with everyone we have dealt with at Poythress Construction. Out house is top quality and the whole team was always willing to make sure things were right after we closed. Anytime we had issues within the 1st year of owning our home, Bruce came out to check on the situation and resolve the issues. Most were small and easy to repair and speak to the emphasis the Poythress team puts on customer satisfaction. This is in the same time frame that our neighbors were told by their builders to wait for their one-year warranty to kick in before they would fix anything. Thanks again for a great experience from start to finish.

Robin and I would like to thank you and Mike for making our home-buying experience a great one. We have been in our home for one year now, and we are very happy in the decision we made to have Poythress build our home.

– John and Robin Finn (Closed 2008)


We are thrilled with our new townhouse. The design, construction and finishing details are all of the highest quality and have completely met our expectations. All deadlines were met by courteous and informative sales, design and construction executives who led us through the custom-build process with great attention to our needs. No detail was too small to address, and all our concerns were met with a rapid and sympathetic response. The final product is all that we expected. The general level of quality and design in this new neighborhood will be evident to anyone who visits Amberly. We have traveled extensively and lived in several parts of the world and also in several parts of the Triangle. It is a joy to find ourselves among wonderful new neighbors in a neighborhood that is shaping up to be the nicest place we’ve ever lived.

We purchased our Poythress home in November 2006. Every item that needed repair or attention was quickly corrected by Poythress within one day! I cannot say enough great things about Bruce, our supervisor, and his attention to detail in order to make us happy. If you compare a Poythress home to any other on the market, you will see that their superb construction and fabulous interior design features (tile/granite/moldings/archways/railings) separate them from any other ordinary builder.

– George and Alexandra Huggins (Closed Nov. 2006)


Between the two of us, we have built and lived in four custom-built homes in the Triangle area over the past 20 years. Without a doubt, Kevin Poythress and his team well-exceeded the quality, value and services we received from our earlier experiences. The home we live in now is exceptionally well-built. The craftsmanship is exquisite — from the millwork to the paint job — and the extra touches he added were beyond our expectation. Moreover, Kevin’s dedicated staff was accessible after the sale to make sure everything was perfect after we moved in, which is the real test of a top-quality builder. We would wholeheartedly recommend Poythress Construction Company to anyone who wants a positive homebuilding experience.

I recommend Poythress Construction to anyone interested in top-quality construction and follow up after closing. From the design phase all the way through construction and final walk through, I experienced Poythress Construction as being very willing to work with me to make certain I got exactly what I wanted in my new house. I especially liked the fact that Kevin Poythress, the President of Poythress Construction, has a Structural Engineering degree, which he used in the design and construction of my house to address special landscape considerations.

About five years ago, we decided to build in Carpenter Village and contracted with Kevin Poythress to build our home. We are extremely happy with our home, which was a design essentially unique for our requirements and is set on an extraordinary lot in Carpenter Village. We would be happy to be used as a reference for Poythress Construction. We are also a living testimony to a very positive experience of living in Carpenter Village.

– Bobbi and Barry Flur (Closed 2004)


Our experience with Poythress has been very satisfying, beginning with the design and including the building experience itself, the workmanship, and perhaps most importantly, the company’s responsiveness to issues big and small both during and after construction. Our experience is confirmed when friends see our home and ask who built it. When told, they reply, Poythress, yes, they have a very good reputation.
