Why Timberlake

We live in the Blue Ridge Mountains.
We love the Blue Ridge Mountains.

This is our community and we respect it. We believe in the core values that make up the small communities nestled in the peaks, valleys, lakes, and river banks of this majestic land.

For more than 18 years, we have welcomed hundreds of new neighbors to the area by helping them build their mountain retreat. This is our passion. For us, it is not about building the most houses but more about delivering value and creating life long relationships that only come when you meet or exceed expectations and deliver quality homes that are shared with friends and family for generations. This can only be done with transparency, experience in making the complicated…simple, and a belief that the Golden Rule still matters. And it does to us.

When you are ready to start on your Blue Ridge Mountain retreat, come by for a cup of coffee and let’s get to know each other. Your home is unique and personal, and we want to learn more about your mountain dreams. If you believe what we believe, and if our core values match yours, we would love to eventually welcome you as one of our newest neighbors and would be honored to be your builder.

Our TeamWe are Timberlake

Yes, as a group, we have accumulated over 100 years of experience in the construction and design profession but equally as important, we will be the first to welcome you to the community. You will see us in the restaurants, at church, supporting other community members, enjoying the outdoors, and just out and about enjoying the mountain life.

We do not create run of the mill homes, therefore, we do not have run of the mill people. Our team pushes every day to bring the best in the industry to reality. Every designer, project manager, trade partner, and administrator at Timberlake makes a difference in everything we do. We are a collection of talent, ideas, passion and admiration for each other and our client partners.

Our Mission

The Timberlake Mission Statement is not just words on a piece of paper. It represents our core values. It is discussed with all new potential team members and all new potential clients. It is what we believe, and we are proud of what it represents.

We believe in God.

Our mission is to create opportunities for others to succeed by honoring God in the work He has given us as a home building company. We use our God given talents to design and build homes for our customers (future neighbors), so they can pursue their dreams. In doing this we give our team the opportunity to grow, develop, and achieve theirs.

We believe that if we create opportunities for our customers, team members, investors, and vendor partners to be successful, then we succeed. If we fail to create viable opportunities for others, then we will not grow as a healthy values-based organization. Our growth is contingent upon serving others.
