After a warm greeting and handshake from the owner of Sheffield Construction, you spread your blueprints out on the conference room table. Your dialogue with Skip has begun. This dialogue is not just about specifications, dates, and budgets. It’s about you, about what the project means.
How do you see yourself living within the space? What adjustments could be made to add personal style or functionality? The incisive questions keep coming. And Skip will be jotting ideas for every one.
As we learn about you, you’ll learn about us too. That we examine everything, because when your home is finished, we want you to be absolutely in love with it. That’s why due diligence is done way up front to set the project in the right direction.
With plans finalized, the team meticulously organizes the actual phases of construction and provides you with access to an exclusive online portal where you can monitor the construction’s progress and budget.
Next, highly skilled craftsmen, chosen because they share the Sheffield vision of excellence, make the ideal real. A perfectly imagined space takes on physical shape and tangible beauty, with every worker adhering to a strict policy of construction site cleanliness. It’s part of doing things right.
When Skip Sheffield and team finish, you have a new place to call home—and a group of dedicated professionals to call friends.
You may come to Skip Sheffield with full, partial, or no building plans; with a clear vision or developing ideas; with a set budget, a range, or more questions than numbers. Wherever you are, that’s where we start.
Skip Sheffield believes any homeowner, with any budget, can achieve a home of high aesthetic standards. The key is knowing and using historical principles of architecture and design. He wants this difference for your home: “People driving by won’t pause to look. They’ll get out of the car.”
Keen Eyes on Your Project. Skip himself reviews your plans and demonstrates, with his own hand drawings, possible changes. He may also commission concrete revisions from other talented professionals. He wants you to see the difference to decide. This signature Sheffield step comes from Skip’s personal history and passions. He is educated in architectural history from Vitruvius to Thomas Jefferson to modern masters. He has also worked hands-on in every part of homebuilding, from cabinetry to company owner. Details matter.
Harmony of Design, Future of Investment. The before-and-after drawings demonstrate how solid historical background creates good architectural detail—and function. Massing and proportion, roof lines, column width and spacing, column-beam ratios, dormer and window style and scale: these are some of the elements that move a home beyond nice curb appeal to impressive presentation. All four elevations (sides), and interiors, come together in one statement. For the same cost, the most important purchase of your life can be a blue-chip investment. Pride, comfort, and value, now and through the years.
