“We challenge the status quo by building homes that are beautifully designed, thoughtfully constructed and simple to live in.” – Mark Batson
Named the National Custom Home Builder of the Year by NAHB.
Founded in 2003, Tongue & Groove Design+Build was built on a foundation of vision and beliefs. Created with uncompromising standards and an agenda that included protecting a client’s financial investment, Tongue & Groove set out to build beautiful homes of the highest quality while delivering superior customer care. We imagine with you, build for you, so you can live life without regrets. As the company grows and expands, these beliefs remain the same. We believe in the warrior’s spirit and servant’s heart while maintaining a fun-loving attitude. Our entire T&G team—from project managers to designers to carpenters—are hired with this philosophy top of mind.
We brought together a team of industry professionals, committed to a culture of honesty and integrity, innovation, proactive and transparent communication and simply doing what we say we will do. This allows our clients to bring to the table all of their thoughts and requirements for their home and our team will offer guidance, recommendations, technical expertise and directions on how we can bring their ideas to reality.
Our luxury design-build firm’s office location is perfectly tailored to our full-service approach. Our office houses our administrative and design staff, as well as our design center. The structure and site were thoughtfully developed by Nick Garrett in 1999, who was the most esteemed custom builder in the area at the time. In 2022, we completed a complete renovation to the exterior and interior, transforming it into a showcase for our clients. This allows our clients to experience high-end selections first-hand and see how certain products function in real life. The building boasts a residential construction style with a stone foundation, timber brackets, cedar shingle siding and roofing, copper gutters, and rain chains. The interiors also exude a domestic feel, featuring shell stone pavers and shiplap paneling sourced from indigenous coastal NC building materials. Our team continues the legacy of this iconic space by creating award-winning home designs and delivering unparalleled service.
