Other builders don’t do this, & we do! Once your home breaks ground, the price will not change.


Great people to work with.

Either is fine! It’s a common misconception that you are required to purchase property before you come to see an “on your lot” builder. But we can help you search for and purchase property if you do not have it before purchasing a Brown Haven home. We have Land Specialists with extensive knowledge and experience of the areas that we build in. Once property is located we will make sure that your home is placed properly on your property.  

Our owner, John Allen, is sincere about ensuring our company vision of providing the best customer service, including:  

  • Price Promise
  • Design Studios
  • Expectation Setting
  • Experience 
  • Licenses and Insurance
  • Warranties

We believe that building a Brown Haven Home is simply the right choice!

At Brown Haven Homes, we offer two levels that provide you with your preferred starting point. We believe in being as transparent as possible, which is why we provide a side-by-side comparison of what is included in each level. Check out our comparison chart by clicking the learn more link below!  

LEARN MORE

Quality is always our main priority; therefore, we calculate the build time at a minimum of 6 months. Once we evaluate the details of your home and home site, we will provide you with a start date and completion date. Typically, the build time is 8 months from start to finish, including financing. On occasion, there are circumstances (i.e. financing, final approvals, weather) that can alter the timeline, but we will provide clear communication and support throughout the entire process. 

Brown Haven Homes has been in business since 2005. Check out the Brown Haven Story on "Our Team" Page to learn more about how Brown Haven began.

No, pricing does not reflect site improvements. However, as a turn-key builder, we will take care of all your property preparation needs. We submit an estimate at time of your initial meeting that covers the general bases of construction and preparation costs. Following that meeting, our top priority is to get out to your property and replace that estimate with a final fixed price. 

A New Home Construction loan, also known as a Construction-to-Permanent Loan, is a type of loan that allows you to borrow from the bank to pay for the construction of your new home. They are very common and provide greater opportunities than most other types of loans. Our preferred lenders offer competitive interest rates, and operate with promptness and clear communication. It is a common misconception that you must sell your current home in order to fund your new one. We highly recommend speaking with one of our preferred lenders so that they can talk you through your financial possibilities. 

We are a fixed-price builder! Brown Haven provides a price promise, which means once your home breaks ground your price will not change.

Our plans have been architecturally drafted and structurally engineered with low maintenance and high efficiency in mind. Our goal is to provide homes that are practical and comfortable, offering different styles and a striking appeal. When you choose one of our plans, we can guarantee that each aspect of the home is reviewed with you in mind so as to deliver the best quality home when possible. We will consider making personalized changes to our plans, but only if the changes will not adversely affect the overall home.   

LEARN MORE

You are covered with a whole-home warranty for 1 year after you receive your Certificate of Occupancy. Additionally, you are covered for another 7 years structurally, and the majority of products we use to build your home carry warranties, as well. 

Our Warranty Department is home to the best technicians in the field. You will be provided with a communication portal  that allows you to submit any possible warranty issues. 

LEARN MORE

We provide Builders Risk insurance. We do recommend, with your best interests in mind, that you take out an additional liability policy. We require our trade partners to provide proof of all licensing and insurance as well.

We have existing homes available to tour. We also offer move-in ready homes in certain areas. Check out the learn more link below to see a list of our current move-in ready homes. 

From Our Happy Homeowners

Highly recommend Brown Haven

John Allen is so professional and always conducts his business in a friendly, efficient manner. I would not hesitate to highly recommend Brown Haven to anyone looking to build a new home.

Thank you again and keep up the great work!

Today is our one year anniversary of moving into our Brown Haven home in Ellijay.  I wanted to thank you personally for calling my husband and me one and a half years ago to offer assistance on getting our land released to us so BH could start building.  I would also like to commend Troy "Brown" Thomas.  From start to finish he has been a joy to work with.  His customer service was exceptional, he's friendly, efficient and has a good follow up to any of our questions or requests. He's certainly an asset to the BH team and our experience was very positive with him as well as you and all of your office staff in Ellijay.  Thank you again and keep up the great work!!

Absolutely phenomenal

Absolutely phenomenal from the beginning of the custom home building process to the end! Very professional, and very easy to work with. Great communication and attention to detail. When you hire Brown Haven, you get an entire TEAM working with you to ensure you have the home of your dreams. What are considered "upgrades" for many companies, Brown Haven includes in their basic package (2x6 exterior walls, granite countertops, custom cabinetry, super energy efficiency - the list goes on!) I can't wait for my home to be finished and move in!

From Our Happy Homeowners

We love our new home, and love Brown Haven!

The customer service at Brown Haven has been very positive. Just finished our 1 year follow up and Troy Thomas was extremely helpful and went over and above to personally help out with any repairs needed. We love our new home and love Brown Haven!
