About Us

Our Building Philosophy

Passionate about what we do for every client

We are thankful to have the opportunity to share our passion for home building with you. Our mission is to elevate not only your home but your vision. From the ground up. Our approach is “customer-centric” and makes no compromise on quality, materials or attention to detail. Those charged with the responsibility of building your home will always be focused on thorough communication.


A key differentiator for our Oak Island building company is our dedicated and experienced beach home construction staff. Our experience in creating luxury ocean front and waterway homes along our island runs deep, and with this we’ve learned the importance of having a staff integrated and knowledgeable from start to finish. Ken Kiser Homes is one of the first names that people refer to when it comes to Oak Island custom home building.


It starts with listening. The core of the design process comes from ideas and dreams, YOUR ideas and dreams. We consider your property and surrounding environs, your budget and design preferences and the architect. We help you decipher priorities, define specific project goals and develop the design collaboratively. We can provide virtually unlimited inspiration for your interior design and product material selections.


This is a big decision. It comes down to approach, capabilities, experience and your comfort. You’ve got to trust the folks you decide to work with. Anyone can swing a hammer. But ask yourself:

  1. Will the builder put my needs before theirs and seek to understand and connect with me and my family?
  2. Can I communicate easily and effectively with the builder and their team?
  3. Will my builder effectively use the space we have to build and make sure we have complete utilization?

We are confident we measure up and we want to earn your family’s trust. This is how Homes by Ken Kiser builds. Different.
