A Home Builder You Want To Avoid

We offer up front pricing you can rely on. We work closely and transparently with each client to make sure there are no surprises. They are very happy with the value their dollars purchased.

Expect to be super surprised at the final cost – their front end pricing appears affordable but the actual cost of the house is much more expensive than expected.

As the highest and most rated Custom Luxury Home Builder in the Hendersonville and Gallatin area, we work hard to earn your trust and respect.

They make promises you are not sure they will keep. They want you to trust them but their delays and excuses, changes in pricing, and lack of quality causes you to distrust them.

We provide you a Designer Showroom AND an experienced Interior Designer to help make selections and to let you see and feel what you will be getting.

You are faced with 1,000 decisions without the guidance you wished you had and you feel uneasy on what the final product will look like.

We provide you an in-house custom design of your dream home to get you exactly what you want. We also provide you with a Construction Engineer to make sure you get what was designed.

There’s a good chance the general contractor’s name Billy Bob or should have been Billy Bob. They specialize in referring you to an architect to design something that you can’t afford.

The quality of our workmanship is noticeably superior. What is standard for us is extra cost for other builders such as:

  • Tec-shield roofing System to Reduce Energy Costs
  • Conditioned Crawl Space
  • 5” Sand & Finish Hardwood Floors
  • 7¼” Crown & Base Molding
  • True Custom Cabinets
  • Taller Doors and Ceilings
  • High-end Granite Tops

They are in a constant look for how they can cut corners on the materials they use, the averageness of workmanship, and ways they can reduce their warranty. BEWARE – What comes standard with Pettis is extra cost with them.

They emphasize Quantity over Quality – if they can build enough houses, they hope the money will make up for the shortcuts and lack of quality in their building process.

Reliable subcontractors who we have vetted and worked with for over 10 years and have a proven track record. No excuses – just results.

Expect a constant parade of excuses of why things are NOT done on time nor with the quality you expected due to unreliable subcontractors.

Solution-focused builder: We make sure issues are addressed quickly, openly and accurately. Rest assured you will get a great solution. We hate excuses. We love providing solutions.  

Excuse-focused builder: They make sure they have a good sounding reason why they are behind schedule and the quality is lacking.

We do our own design work in house – you can count on having a house that captures exactly what you want with helpful consultation throughout the journey.

They like predictable, cookie-cutter designs they have built dozens of times. You wonder why they call themselves custom builders.


You have been honest, communicative and determined to please throughout and have become a friend in the process. Without exaggeration it is honest to say Pettis Builders has exceeded our expectations.

Brenda and Dennis Bratton

We absolutely love the final result. It is above and beyond what we were expecting. The quality is second to none.

Betsy and Dennis Mullins, Gallatin TN

We enjoyed our experience working with Pettis Builders to build our new home. Throughout the entire process Trey and his staff were helpful. They made the process as painless as possible. There were numerous decisions to make but they were always willing to give us guidance and we trusted them to help us make the best decisions. We are thrilled with the way our house came together and would not have been able to achieve the same result if we used a builder that did not have such a talented interior designer on the team. There was a high level of organization and excellent communication through each phase of building. Overall, it was a pleasure to work with everyone on their team and we would recommend Pettis Builders without reservation.

The Craig Family, Gallatin, TN

The pace of the build matched what was predicted. The design hours were very helpful with decision making and keeping things on task. Kalyn, designer, and Chad, project manager were professional, responsive, and key to this process going well.

The service, timeliness, and economical package Pettis Builders provided for us was beyond all expectations we had in regards to the homebuilding process.
