Legacy Timeline

Included Features


"This was a very thorough and easy process to go through. Each person that we worked with was very understanding and considerate of us as customers. They all worked with us as if they were building their own home. (Our project manager) was a great project manager to work with and answered many questions and took the time to explain many details about the build. (Our design consultant) was also great to work with in the design aspect of the interior of the house. She made things easy for my wife and I. Overall, we cannot express how happy we are to have built with Ellis Custom Homes."

Jim and Angie Grombacher

"I wanted to tell you that we get so many compliments on our home. I think I told you this previously, but we have had people knock on our door and ask us who built our home. We just had another person do it a couple weeks ago. Also, I was selling something on Facebook marketplace and the lady that came to pick it up messaged me later and told us that she thinks we have the prettiest house in Dayton. Please pass this on to the man that helped design it."

"We just wanted to say thank you for all of your hard word that you put into our house. The house is beautiful and turned out just the way we wanted it! Friends, family and neighbors keep raving about it! We will be sure to refer people to Ellis Custom Homes due to the great experience that we had."

Andy & Kelly Zecchini

"Ellis built our home and we love it. The work they did was exceptional and you can tell it was custom built. They keep you involved in the whole process from start to finish. Would highly recommend them if you are building."

The Johnsons (2021)

"We will enjoy and cherish our new home for the rest of our lives, sharing it with our children and grandchildren. You built our home as though it was yours and it is perfect!"

Larry & Betty Lee

"We've been in our new home for about 5 months. We asked ourselves, "What would we change if we were doing this again?" ... we couldn't come up with anything substantial. That's a testament to the diligence and creativity that comes in building a new home with the Ellis team. We started with our "idea" and worked with the team to transform that into a home that we couldn't be more happy with. The experience was enjoyable, the people were terrific, and the quality of work and craftsmanship is second to none. It truly is our dream home and more! Thank you Ellis! "

Doug and Betse

"The quality of craftsmanship is superior! We loved being able to design the home we've been dreaming about for years. We are so pleased with our beautiful, energy-efficient home."

Jim and Jan Pettry

"We built with Ellis Custom Homes in 2015 and absolutely love our house. Great quality that has worn very well and our home value has increased significantly since then. Their staff is professional and reliable. Would definitely recommend."

Zachary (2015)

"I appraised one of your higher-end homes a month or so ago. I asked the homeowner what the experience was like, and he said, "It was awesome". I also spoke to a local Realtor, about a different matter altogether, and she was singing Ellis' praises. She said that you guys are amazingly well-organized and customer-focused, and liked the way that your computer program makes instant changes based on what the client wants. All good stuff. Typically when I talk to people about their experience of building a custom home, they say it was miserable or "its the only time we've ever talked about a divorce" (seriously). "
