True custom craftsmen with 30 years of experience building superior custom homes.

About Us

Perkinson Homes, Inc. was founded in Richmond, Virginia in 2008 by Brian R. Perkinson. Brian is a 3rd generation home-builder, following in the footsteps of his grandfather and father. He holds a degree in Wood Science/ Forest Products from Virginia Tech’s School of Natural Resources.

Brian Perkinson entered the custom home building market in 2008 while other builders were closing their companies or struggling due to the economic collapse. The decision to start building custom homes was easy for Brian; he understood that regardless of the market conditions, there would always be a need for an experienced builder who puts the individual needs of the client first. Perkinson Homes has cultivated a reputation of excellence by listening to and understanding the desires and dreams of its clients.

Known for customer satisfaction as well as architecturally stunning custom work, Perkinson Homes continues to make its mark in the Richmond home building community. The craftsmanship of a Perkinson Home has become a hallmark of the brand, known for exceptional detail and design. The Homebuilders Association of Richmond named Perkinson Homes the 2015 Builder of the Year.

Third Generation Builder

In 1949 George Ransom Perkinson was widely respected for his pristine brick work and attention to detail. Through the 1950s and 1960s he branched out with a side business and built 2-3 custom homes annually for clients who owned their own lots.

He was skilled in several different trades. George would often lay the brick, frame the house and install all the trim work himself in the... homes. His son Dwayne (Randy) Perkinson joined him in 1970. From 1972-1975 they built 35 homes (in partnership with George's brother Charles) in their first subdivision "Southern Estates" located in Prince George County. The father & son team continued building custom homes together and working on various masonry projects through the 1980s and early 1990s spanning across Richmond and the Tri Cities.

George retired in 1993 and passed away in 2009. But his legacy lives on. Today, Brian Perkinson proudly continues in the footsteps of his grandfather and father (Randy remains one his most knowledgeable and trusted construction advisors) with the same passion for craftsmanship and attention to detail. Perkinson Homes will always be a place where quality is valued over quantity and we truly believe that even the smallest details matter.

Our Philosophy

They design with the intent of meeting the individual needs of each client, enjoying the process of creating unique spaces that reflect the personality of the client. Their focus is on providing the best value per square foot possible; their standards are other builder’s upgrade.

The construction process is scheduled well in advance and closely monitored to ensure that it goes smoothly and on time. They are also committed to responding quickly to address any questions that might arise during the process.

Perkinson Homes only employs the most qualified and respected subcontractors and has the ability to control the quality of the workmanship to the highest standards. Brian carefully selects his subcontractors to make sure their attitude and integrity align with the values that they hold important, while still maintaining a down-to-earth, low-stress approach to every project. As a client, you will get to know many of these folks on a first name basis. Because Perkinson Homes is a family owned business, they understand how personal building a home is and will not let anyone work on a client’s house that they wouldn’t want working on their own home. They have a passion for delivering a rewarding experience completely focused on the client, helping homeowners build the home or space of their dreams.
