You’d be hard-pressed to find a home builder in Knoxville that rivals Turner Homes in experience and quality. With over 50 years under our belts, we bring expertise from building entire new home communities directly to those looking for a professionally designed home built right, on time, and on budget. Turner Homes specializes in building homes, not houses. We work tirelessly to achieve a unique vision and deliver truly one-of-a-kind homes. We’re a local company, and because we call East Tennessee home, we work hard to ensure that each new home upholds the integrity we’ve established here since 1971. We’re always able to hold our heads high when we see our homeowners around town because we take pride in our work in every home.

100+ Years of Combined Experience

Quality Craftmanship

Sustainable Green Building

CRAFTSMANSHIP We pride ourselves in building homes of high-quality design and artistry, and doing so with great passion and attention to detail. Craftsmanship is something that is practiced and refined over the course of many years, and we’ve worked over 50 years to refine our craft. Houses are built by hand; it takes a true mastery of craftsmanship to build a dream home.

DESIGN Design is the purpose, planning, and intention behind a home. Thoughtful design is the difference between a house and a home. Beauty and functionality must both be present and work together to create a space that will thrive. Our team utilizes a skilled registered interior designer who carefully helps our clients design a masterpiece.

INTEGRITY We hold ourselves to a high standard of honesty and integrity. We strive to always do the right thing by our clients, even if that means taking more time and effort to do things the right way. We use communication as a tool to be transparent and collaborate with clients along the entire homebuilding process.
