Greg Narr embodies the philosophy he learned from his dad — work hard and bring integrity and honor to everything you do. For 30 years the two Narrs worked together, building a legacy as a well-loved local custom homebuilder. Today, Greg carries on that tradition with his wife Karen, combining a distinctive flair for home design, a love of fine carpentry and top workmanship as well as a deep understanding of how to provide unmatched service. The result? Truly satisfied clients and homes would make Greg’s dad proud.
