Precept Construction adheres to more than simply building codes; we aspire to raise the level of awareness and responsibility that is collectively shared by the community to be good stewards of natural resources. Additionally, our commitment to craftsmanship and style is proof positive that energy efficiency, fiscal responsibility, and timeless design can and should go hand in hand when building a home. Precept (pronounced pree-sept) is defined as a rule or principle that guides somebody’s actions, especially one that guides moral behavior.

  Rick & Dawn

As first-time home buyers, we were treated with the utmost respect throughout the building process from start to finish. Scott is a great listener, and his calm, professional manner showed us he cared about what we wanted in our house. He was proactive in offering us upgrades that were free to us, like extra recessed lights in the kitchen, handles instead of knobs, brushed nickel instead of brass, cable hookups in every room. Little things, maybe, but they made us feel special!
