Millward Custom Homes is a family owned and operated business. When Joe Millward started the company in 2003, their vision was to provide quality homes with a level of customer service uncommon within the construction industry.


Millward Custom Homes provides residential construction, remodeling and light commercial construction services. To help you bring your vision to life we utilize local craftsmen, artisans and quality vendors.


Fewer things are more important than choosing and building a home for you and your family, and here at Millward Custom Homes, it is our goal to make the process as enjoyable and stress free as possible. Joe's commitment to customer service means that he maintains a constant presence at the job site and works hard to keep your project on time, on budget, and on target.


Millward Custom Homes can help you choose the best location site for your new home by assisting you with the analysis of vacant land - factoring in elements like topography, soils, views and the use of natural lighting. If you're looking for the perfect place to build your dream home, Millward Custom Homes also has a catalogue of available properties that are well suited for a variety of preferences.
