Working with the same subcontractors and crews on nearly every job ensures that everyone is on the same page
You don't get to be one of the south's most reputable custom home builders by not having a notable history.
The legacy starts in the 1940's, where Jay and Larry Ramsey's Grandfather, P.M. Chaffin, started his own building company. John Ramsey and Robert H. "Nick" Daugherty, who married Mr. Chaffin's daughters, joined him in his business in the 1940's. The sons-in-law ventured out on their own in 1950, forming a partnership building speculative homes, then switching exclusively to custom homes.
Jay Ramsey was teaching mathematics in 1977 when he left to join his father in the family business. Larry followed in 1984. Robert Daugherty passed away in 1992. John Ramsey retired in 2015 at the age of 89.
Ramsey-Daugherty feels that the personal supervision of each project is key to having a beautiful custom home. Visiting a job site and acting as superintendents, they are often on each site two, sometimes three times a day! Working with the same subcontractors and crews on nearly every job ensures that everyone is on the same page and understand the level of craftsmanship Ramsey-Daugherty expects.
While it may take a little longer than other contractors for Ramsey-Daugherty Company to construct a house, great care is taken by the principals to insure that every detail is seen to and that only the finest materials are used for each home. For example, the exterior walls are often framed with 2x6 lumber to strengthen and allow for better insulation, and in some larger homes, steel beams are used. Another example is that most homes of today use PVC plumbing piping, but Ramsey-Daugherty prefers to use cast-iron pipes, since they are quieter when water flows through them. These items typically add some price to the home, but in the long run, say 30 years from now, you'll notice the difference that first-rate materials have given.
These images cast a clear representation of the caliber of workmanship and attention to detail Ramsey-Daugherty provide to their clients. This portfolio is but a small sample of Ramsey-Daugherty's collection. These images change periodically as another client project is completed.
