The Craig Builders Distinction
At Craig Builders, we foster custom individuality in our designs, helping you to create a new home that’s exclusively yours. From our signature mahogany front door to each room filled with abundant natural light — we stay committed to alignment with your vision. We call this “Customization Without Compromise.” You’ll call it the beginning of a beautiful chapter.
Choice Is A Valued Hallmark.
The narrative that sets a Craig Builders home so distinctly apart — our value-add — is exploring customization with you to the extent our ability and building process allows. Because each custom opportunity is interdependent, we work to exceed your expectations by partnering with you throughout the entire design process. We invite you to review our portfolio of new home plans in sought after communities in Charlottesville/Albemarle County, Virginia including Belvedere, Cascadia, Foothill Crossing and Westlake, Glenmore, Oak Hill Farm (sold out), Old Trail Village, Out Of Bounds (sold out) and Park Lane.
What's the difference? We're glad you asked.
Craig Builders provides a semi-custom building experience using over 60 years of tried and tested construction methods. The result is a quality built and energy efficient home with included features that offer a complete package so you may not feel the need to upgrade.
Each home includes painted full overlay cabinetry, granite countertops, wide plank hardwood flooring and abundant choice of ceramic tile…just to name a few. Many homes include our signature custom made mahogany front door and every home is stick built with 2x6 exterior walls as we’ve done for generations.

The Craig Builders Story
In the early 1900s, young architect, Samuel Daley Craig returned to the Shenandoah Valley from school to practice his trade of designing and building. In 1957 S. Daley Craig Jr. moved to Charlottesville to serve the expanding housing needs of the increasingly successful University of Virginia. For the past 40 + years, Sam Craig has guided Craig Builders as it continues to adapt to the everchanging home building market place in Charlottesville and Albemarle County.
The Craig Builders “family” of employees has steadily grown over the years through very selective matching of special people with specific roles. It is comprised of a tight-knit group of exceptional staff. Each person shares the guiding principle of being highly productive, anticipating and serving the needs of our customers exceptionally well, and being highly respected in the community of family, friends, associates and public. As a small business, Craig Builders’ primary reward is witnessing the satisfaction of their customers entire building experience.
Craig Builders constantly adjusts its practices with long term business standing in mind. Despite having built many homes over many years, each house is still built one at a time. The use of time-tested materials and methods allows Craig Builders to be confident and prideful in every home it builds and insures its strong community standing for many years into the future.
