J.W. Dunnwright, LLC

An independently owned franchise of Arthur Rutenberg Homes

Partners Michael Raab and Jon Pruitt believe that your new custom home may be your most valuable possession and the culmination of life-long dreams; not only a place to lay your head but a canvas on which to showcase your life, impart your values and retreat from the challenges of everyday life. A good experience in a new home should start well before the first shovel is put into the ground. We will assist you in realizing the dream home of your imagination – one that will have your unique personal touch in the details. We will work to share your vision and match your passion for making this concept a beautiful reality.

J. W. Dunnwright Homes has built a well-earned local reputation for providing high-quality results by using a talented and conscientious workforce that takes pride and ownership in each task. A vast pool of creativity has been tapped not only for award-winning design and execution but for turning challenges into opportunities – several “un-buildable lots” and “un-approvable plans” have been turned into beautiful finished products due to our tenacity and creativity.
