About Us

The Building Process

Your home is a work of art to us

At Homes by Ken Kiser we approach each and every home that we build on Oak Island as a piece of art, a creation if you will. We work hand in hand with all of our subs and contractors to ensure that the quality of work that they provide exceeds any requirements that we have, meaning that the quality of your home and the craftsmanship involved will surely satisfy your expectations. We use only the finest artisans in our cabinets, counter tops, floors, painting and all other aspects, and you will find Ken visiting each job site most every day to ensure that we are on schedule, but most important, on point with excellent construction.


The process of building your home is one in which you are certainly involved in every step of the process. Our goal is to provide you with a transparent building process, enabling you to be informed, be aware and keep in “the loop” with all we are doing. We also hope to make the creation of your home an enjoyable process. Here is a brief rundown of what we do to bring your home to fruition:

1) Bring your own plans or we will be happy to find a suitable plan for you and modify it to truly make it YOUR home.

2) We will submit your plan to architectural and engineering firms to ensure they meet the rigorous building codes of the coast, and we will take care of pulling all permits, including Developmental, Building, Cama, Water & Sewer, etc. 

4) You will receive allowances to choose everything in your house; including but not limited to; Exterior material, paint colors, roofing, flooring, countertops, appliances, lighting and plumbing fixtures. We also offer full decorating services if you are short on time or need help with decisions

5) Typical build time from receipt of the Building Permit is 8-9 months. As construction starts, Ken and his supervisors will be on your home site a minimum of twice a day to ensure quality construction.

6) Be involved as much or as little as you like during the build process. We have vast experience in both arenas and are happy to accommodate your busy schedule. Ken will also be in constant communication during the build process with emails, phone calls and pictures if you so desire. 

8) After receipt of the Certificate of Occupancy, you will provide a “punch list “ of items you would like touched up. We stand behind all of our work 100% with a one year warranty

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