Our Process

The greatest asset any construction company can have is a good reputation, and ours is built on honesty, integrity, and professionalism. Our past performance has proven our ability to first define and then exceed our clients’ expectations through a streamlined process free of surprises caused by unexpected delays and costs. We are poised to be competitive with any custom builder in the Charleston area while never compromising our quality, service, or communication that has set us apart from our competitors. Our Custom Building Program systematically and efficiently leads all our clients through the entire process of their home building endeavor. Our staff will be a guiding hand whether you are starting with a blank canvas or looking for the right team to construct your completed plans.

Architectural Design Management and Budgeting

So many times over the years, clients have come to us with decades of ideas and pictures, but really do not know how to get started. Back in 2000, President Jamison Howard, with a passion for design and a background in Architecture, began a design build program that guides clients through the entire process from conceptual development to finished product. Over the years, this program has helped many clients develop their ideas into a home that is well beyond their expectations, while also making sure that their budget is not exceeded in the process. Through this builder-client-architect collaboration, the process is more efficient, the finished product is ultimately better, and the overall project is properly budgeted to ensure that each client can obtain the products and finishes that make the home uniquely theirs.

Interior Design and Selections Coordination

As part of our Custom Building Program, each and every client will work with our in-house Interior Designer Widney Pierson. Widney guides clients through the selection process every step of the way. By working exclusively with Max Crosby clients, Widney is up-to-date on the status, goals, budgets, and deadlines of each project. She will not only keep you organized, but she will schedule your selection appointments and attend them with you to guide and assist in the decisions that ultimately make a custom home special and unique.

Construction Management and Quality Assurance

Years of experience in new home construction has allowed our company to create a Quality Assurance Plan that outlines a clear, systematic, and reproducible guideline that prevents a deformation of quality in all scopes of work throughout the process. The implementation of this written plan by experienced Project Managers ensures that our standards and objectives are being met on each project through clearly defined scopes of work, proper installation of products, and that all specifications and codes are met and or exceeded.

This process, coupled with an experienced team and third party inspections, ensures that our clients can trust that things are being done correctly and safely during the construction of their new home.


Max Crosby Construction Company gives great care to the quality of construction to each new home. We take a tremendous amount of pride in our attention to detail and overall craftsmanship. It is this special attention and pride that has so greatly contributed to our customer’s satisfaction and company success. We have the utmost confidence in the enduring quality and value of our homes.

Every home is backed by a one year workmanship warranty as well as an eight year structural warranty.
