About The Builder: David Bock

David Bock Builders has been building in the Highlands-Cashiers area since 1998 and has delivered more than 170 homes to satisfied clients. We build everything from comfortable mountain cottages to the most challenging custom lodges. We provide expertise and quality while staying focused on delivering value.

Our team brings decades of residential construction experience to every project. We work closely with local architects and engineers and a team of experienced sub-contractors.

We consider ourselves to be professional builders. We take pride in the relationships we have with our customers, past and present. Many have become close friends, some even repeat clients and all are happy to provide a raving review. We want to make building your home a rewarding experience too.

Building a new home can be a challenging endeavor. Building a new home from 100s of miles away can complicate the process. We understand this added stress and make communications a priority. We will be responsive to your concerns and regularly email photos and videos.

"David Bock Builders builds an excellent product"

David Bock Builders built our home up in Highlands, NC recently. Our experience with them was beyond what we have ever experienced in the past with other builders. David Bock Builders builds an excellent product, delivers great service, and despite some nasty weather delivered our house in a timely manner. The most important comment my husband and I can make about them is we would absolutely use them again and have recommended them to our friends not only in North Carolina, but in Atlanta, Georgia too. Our project manager, who was on our job daily, made sure to keep us informed of the progress of the job. We received weekly videos of the house and progress as we live mostly in Florida and were not on the job site . This was very helpful to us as this was to be our summer home. Our project with David Bock Builders was a 3 level home with over 4000 living square feet. This was a completely custom home and all the finishings were top quality. They do excellent work. Don’t think twice about using anyone else. David Bock Builders is your first and only choice!!

"The first later sold for $1.25 million and the second for $1.9 million"

David Bock and David Bock Builders have constructed two homes for me in Highlands, NC. The first later sold for $1.25 million and the second for $1.9 million. The quality on both was outstanding. I am convinced that no other builder in the area can construct a home at the same level of quality for a comparable cost per square foot. I expect to use David Bock Builders on future projects once the market rebounds in this area.

"They did an outstanding job"

I had the pleasure of having David and Richard Bock build my home in Highlands, NC. in 2009. Initially I was scared that the project would not be on time and would be way over budget like most other builders who build in Highlands. Just the opposite happened. David was 1 of 3 bids I obtained before building. He was the middle bid. I had someone lower but just did feel comfortable with them. I had trully a great experience with David Bock Builders. They did an outstanding job. David’s employees were great to work with. We never had a disagreement about anything. David kept all of the bills and I review them periodically and deposited money in the account when we needed funds. I would recommend David without question. He is an honest straight forward person and is easy to deal with. If I ever build another house in Highlands I would not let anyone else build for me except David.
