A Family Team: “It’s all starts with trust”

We are much more than a custom home builder. Since day one—which was three decades ago—our goal has been to build lasting relationships with customers by sticking to a single promise:

To exceed our customers’ expectations by delivering quality custom homes on time and on budget.

Our Core Values

Quality, Craftsmanship, Integrity, & Excellence.

More About

Family-Owned & Operated Since 2003

Over the years, that goal has become a reality as we have earned a peerless reputation with both our customers, as well as the contractors and team members we partner with. Together, Tim, his wife Marilyn Wright (a top-selling local realtor), his daughter Hannah and son-in-law Lane, are committed in their passion to create the finest luxury homes in Western North Carolina.

A Long Tradition of Quality Craftsmanship

Our family’s construction roots date to the mid-1800s, when William Wright and his sons were building homes, churches, and school buildings across Hominy Valley. By the turn of the 20th Century, Aaron Wright had established himself as a mountaineer craftsman, hand building homes of quality and detail. Today, his great grandson Tim Wright is proud to continue the family’s long legacy of quality craftsmanship. As president and owner of one of the Asheville, NC area’s premier residential construction companies, Tim builds homes that embrace current technology while maintaining the same hand-built attention to detail that has been the family’s hallmark for generations.

A Foundation For Excellence

Wright Family Custom Homes was founded on four core values: quality, craftsmanship, integrity, and excellence. These values inspire our approach to business each day as we work with property owners on residential construction projects throughout the Asheville, NC area. Our goal is to ensure that the new home construction process is an enjoyable and rewarding experience.

Tim Wright: Owner, Friend, Problem Solver

That philosophy is: “you can never go wrong by doing the right thing.” That means taking care of the customer, first and foremost, and standing by your word. If Tim and his team make a promise, you can count on it.
