If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them.

Henry David Thoreau

Our Beginning

After 20 years of honing their skills as real estate brokers, Andrew and Kaly Batson started to see a pattern amongst home builders.  They’ve helped families negotiate one of the largest financial decisions of their life, yet something was missing.  Deal after deal, it resonated even more.  The Batson’s recognized that none of the home builders were structured around the needs of the customer, but rather what worked best for the builder. 

An opportunity soon arose for Andrew and Kaly to purchase the luxury lake development at Pelican Shores.  Andrew went on a search for a builder partner that he felt could provide the style, value, and level of service that he would be proud to offer to his home buyers, but there wasn’t any. 

Thus…. Copper Homes Limited was born. The foundation of Copper Homes Limited is built around the client’s most essential need – a great home building experience.  As we employ some of the finest craftsman in the state, we serve to build you a better house and deliver a better all-around experience from design to move-in.
