Andrew Watkins and his team work hard to develop close knit relationships with all our clients through quality workmanship, attention to detail, and, most importantly, listening to our client’s feedback. Here is what some of our clients have had to say about their experience working with us.


Standing Stone

Custom Homebuilding Inc. is an appropriate name for this master builder’s company who surrounds himself with excellent craftsmen that take to heart his mandate for precision and refined workmanship. This man, Andrew Watkins, is multi-talented and hard working. He has an eye for detail and his personal craftsmanship is extraordinary. He is a leader by example. As for his company, you can trust them to provide you with a custom job that is “value for money”.

Over a two and one half year complex building project for me, Andrew accomplished the task at hand on time and on budget. He never disappointed me.

When your home is built by Custom Homebuilding, you will not only have the home you dreamed of building, you will have a new friend to admire it with you – Andrew Watkins.

Dray residence

In 2003, we contracted with Custom Homebuilding to help design and then construct our new home.  We’re glad that we did.  The quality of the finished product is first class.  We were greatly pleased and impressed not only by Andrew Watkins’ fastidious attention to every detail, but also by the highly skilled craftsmen whom he employed.  Just as important, we found Andrew to be a professional of the highest integrity and honesty, who went the extra mile to ensure our satisfaction.  With no reservations we most strongly recommend him to anyone looking for a quality, reliable general contractor.

My name is Jeff Timmons and I am a principal at Timmons Kelley Architects.  We have a small architectural firm in Midlothian, Virginia that specializes in design conscious solutions for golf clubhouse facilities, the hospitality industry, and site specific custom homes.
Andrew has been the general contractor on three of our residential projects in the Bath County area.  He has always performed in a very professional, yet personal manner.  He has displayed the ability to direct all facets of often complex jobs in a consistent and coordinated method that has produced products of a high quality and good value.  It is without hesitation that I would recommend Andrew as a highly skilled home builder.

Werner-Ling home

We are absolutely thrilled with the house that Andrew built for us.   After discussing our needs and design preferences with Andrew, he was able to incorporate our ideas into drawings without the help of an architect.  Since this was our first experience with new construction, we needed a great deal of guidance and Andrew was able to patiently take us through the process step by step.  With his keen sense of design, he was able to give us some great ideas as well as to maximize our usable space.  His interest in green technologies contributed to the house’s energy efficiency and use of environmentally friendly materials.  He also took great pains to keep a fair and accurate accounting of the expenses.  We were particularly impressed with his crew–their precise workmanship and attention to detail were truly exceptional.  Overall, it was a great adventure and we couldn’t be happier with the outcome.

Keiger residence

Andrew Watkins is a master at home building. From the design stage of our home through the siting and buildout, Andrew showed an attention to detail we have rarely encountered. We could not have been more comfortable than we were in working with Andrew and his team and, in fact, we continue to work with Andrew after occupying our home. Whenever we are asked who built our home we proudly say Andrew Watkins because we know that he associates with integrity and quality.

I began working with Andrew Watkins in the summer of 1998.  Since that time I have always felt very comfortable in recommending him to any size project.  He is very professional and cares about offering a quality built home.  His attention to detail and his creative thinking makes him one of the best custom homebuilders that I have associated with.
