About the Southern Living® Custom Builder Program

The Southern Living Custom Builder Program is a network of 100 of the finest custom home builders in the South. Southern Living reviews the homes members have built for their customers in order to look for craftsmanship, excellence in architecture, and home building that tells a Southern story.
