Calhoun Properties, Inc.

In 1969 Lawson Calhoun, Jr. moved back home to Atlanta and bought a house to renovate. Over the next 12 years, he bought and renovated several more houses and also built a new home for his growing family. Lawson had found his calling. In 1981, he left his successful career in real estate to become a full-time home builder. His company, Calhoun Properties, Inc., has since built more than 120 custom homes.

The majority of the firm's work is custom-designed and built homes in the $900,000 to $2 million+ price range in greater Atlanta. In addition to five custom homes, Calhoun Properties builds a new model home each year to show prospective homebuyers new products and concepts, and to showcase its craftsmanship skills. In addition, the company completes one or two major remodeling/additions projects each year.

"We were invited to do a complete makeover of a 1950s ranch-style home. Other than some financial constraints, the owner gave both our designers and our construction team carte blanche to put new life back into a very tired but structurally sound, uninspired home. This project became much like a "reality make-over show," with us stripping most of the interior and exterior. Then we dressed the house back up so that it still had the charm of the past but the conveniences of today."

"We've also just completed a very complex, custom-designed and built home for two young business professionals. The home is based on Old World traditional designs but has been finished with the excitement of modern sophistication."

We display two types of written homeowner feedback on GuildQuality member profile pages: Comments and Reviews.


In response to our customer satisfaction surveys, homeowners share lots of comments about construction quality, communication, or any other question asked in the survey. Guildmembers can selectively publish these comments here on their profile page.


Reviews are different than comments. These are star ratings that homeowners ask us to publish, and they come with a written description of the type of experience they had working with their contractor. We publish all of the reviews we receive: positive and negative alike.

I am considering placing a pool in my back yard. What should I know before i begin this process?

Start by deciding if you'd like to have an above ground pool or below ground pool. There's gotta be a significant cost factor there I'd think.
