At Chase Building Company, we are known for excellent execution and high quality craftsmanship.

We specialize in custom renovations and new construction homes that reflect each homeowner's style and needs. We use a unique blend of in house design experience as well as outside architects and designers to create truly functional and beautiful spaces.  We give homeowners every tool they need to design the distinct home of their dreams. This creates timeless and inheritable homes for future generations. 

Since its founding in 1997, Chase Building Company, has been a local Durham based company. We've maintained the highest building and design standards for our community. Walker Harris, our founder, has three decades of building experience and is a third generation business owner in Durham.

Whether you chose to simply remodel a kitchen, or create an entire custom home from scratch, Chase Building Company is committed to building beautiful, quality spaces that exceed your expectations. We are a relationship driven company - a successful relationship and workflow with our customers is just as important to us as the construction project itself. We know the importance of your home decisions and our goal is to serve you throughout the process. 

Feel free to give us a call whether your project is big or small- we may just be the builder you have been looking for.

Andrew Hove

Owner / Project Manager

Andrew grew up in Durham and graduated from UNC-Chapel Hill. From taking apart his own bunk bed at the age of 3 until now, Andrew has always had a desire to know how things work. To the horror of onlookers, his father let him start using his wood shop unsupervised at the age of 7 and it's been a wonderful learning curve ever since. Andrew brings a large amount of management experience to Chase Building Company and has a passion for quality craftsmanship.
