About Us

Above all else we are
Custom. Home. Love.

Clay Street Builders was founded in 2012 by lifelong friends Dan Kaufmann and Scott O’Connell. With over 40 years of combined experience in the building industry, Clay Street was designed to meet the needs of homeowners looking for a more personal home building experience.  Dan and Scott had success contracting everything from total home builds and renovations to major commercial spaces, and after working on a few homes together, the partnership became permanent. Starting out with a few homes in the first year, Clay Street Builders now builds over thirty homes a year, handles several select renovations, and is expanding into commercial spaces as well.  The expansion continues but Clay Street still offers the personal service of Dan and Scott in every build.  

Clay Street Builders aims to provide the highest level of customer service every step of the way while building the best custom home for each family. We stand alone in our commitment to open communication, customer care, and quality products throughout the building process.  Developing the best home for each customer from the ground up is where our passion lies. We listen to every homeowner to design a home around their life and values, ensuring the home will reflect their wants and needs now and in the future. 

Clay Street Builders are absolute perfectionists in every way. Dan Kaufmann is one himself and demands perfection from all of his subs. He also has many innovative ideas. We couldn’t be more pleased and would certainly recommend Clay Street Builders to anyone who is looking for a great home builder. -Joe and Linda Blackburn
