Our Philosophy

“He who works with his hands is a laborer. He who works with his hands and his head is a craftsman. He who works with his hands and his head and his heart is an artist.” – Saint Francis of Assisi

At Avant, we believe homebuilding is a study in the sublime, where the science of building and the art of home design come together in harmony. Ultra-custom construction is an active process that demands onsite management by, and creative involvement of, our firm’s leaders. Accordingly, Avant’s principals are not just talented managers; they are creative designers and trained craftsmen. With a sophisticated sense for material selection and a stylistic repertoire ranging from reclaimed rustic to mountain modern to country French, we augment the design process to ensure each property maintains its sense of place and purpose.

Client advocacy is the guiding principle at Avant. We truly believe home construction is a service industry and see ourselves as stewards of our clients’ interests. Our service mindset means more than just listening to a client’s ideas. It means really getting to know their tastes so we can anticipate their preferences throughout the process and execute on their unique visions. It’s no surprise that our clients become like family after getting accustomed to the passion and integrity with which we approach their projects.
