About Us

What sets us apart?

We work as a team with our homeowners through every phase of the process for all projects, large and small.  We take the time to focus on your vision, to understand your goals for the project, and we maintain open lines of communication and full transparency with you from start to finish.  We take pride in our honesty and integrity, and the fact that we do much of the work with our highly skilled in-house team.  This allows us to deliver exceptional results while helping you stay within your budget.  For the portions of a job which are subcontracted, we choose carefully to select professional and talented craftsmen and we continue to be involved in every step of the job to ensure your satisfaction.  Our owners’ high level of engagement in daily operations means we can ensure that issues are addressed as they arise, and your wishes and concerns will never be watered down as they pass through multiple channels of communication.

Tom and Tommy Martin share more than just a name and a father-son bond.  They share a business and a passion for constructing quality custom homes in the lowcountry.  Tom began his career in the building industry in the mid-1980s, and his son, Tommy, developed his own skills through years of observing and mimicking his father’s craftsmanship.  In 2004, the duo established Tom Martin and Son General Contracting.  Our homes have a lot of extra touches and amenities that make them stand out from the rest.  We believe the process of designing and building a one of a kind home should be fun, exciting, and enjoyable.  We hope to accomplish this for our clients by keeping them informed, thereby minimizing the unknowns.
