About Us

What We Do

DC Fine Homes builds homes in the greater Lane-County area, from Cottage Grove north to Junction City and everywhere in between. Whether it be a client specific project or a speculative home it is essential for us to feel inspired by the project, one where we can provide the future owner with a well thought out, exclusively designed residence. We specialize in working closely with future homeowners to design the best fit for their property, and the start-to-finish service we provide centers on creating an attractive, well built home that accommodates the client’s needs.

We are best suited for residential construction above 2,000 square feet, but will look at any project where we feel we can be an asset. We are experienced in building within tight timelines, constructing on challenging parcels and working with the clients that know what they want the home to look like but have a tough time conveying their thoughts. We feel the only limitations we have is our imagination… and we haven’t found the limits of that yet!

“Designing and building your dream house can be a stressful experience, but working with DC Fine Homes was amazing as they not only build it but help tremendously with the design and decision making along the way.”
– Pat & Heather McCarthy

Why Us?

If hired, we will work towards constructing the best home we can within your budget, and as part of the project we will offer our interior design services at a reduced rate. We can adapt to any style or theme, and we feel our versatility and service oriented approach helps make the daunting task of constructing their home a little less stressful and a little more enjoyable. When finished with your home, we are confident that the experience will have exceeded your expectations. Our reputation of meticulous attention to detail and originality has been earned throughout the years, and we hope you give us an opportunity to show you first hand.

For our past, present, and future projects, please see our folio section of this website.
