About Us

Perkinson Homes, Inc. was founded in Richmond, Virginia in 2008 by Brian R. Perkinson. Brian is a 3rd generation home-builder, following in the footsteps of his grandfather and father. He holds a degree in Wood Science/ Forest Products from Virginia Tech’s School of Natural Resources.

Brian Perkinson entered the custom home building market in 2008 while other builders were closing their companies or struggling due to the economic collapse. The decision to start building custom homes was easy for Brian; he understood that regardless of the market conditions, there would always be a need for an experienced builder who puts the individual needs of the client first. Perkinson Homes has cultivated a reputation of excellence by listening to and understanding the desires and dreams of its clients.

Known for customer satisfaction as well as architecturally stunning custom work, Perkinson Homes continues to make its mark in the Richmond home building community. The craftsmanship of a Perkinson Home has become a hallmark of the brand, known for exceptional detail and design. The Homebuilders Association of Richmond named Perkinson Homes the 2015 Builder of the Year.

Our Story

In 1949 George Ransom Perkinson was widely respected for his pristine brick work and attention to detail. Through the 1950s and 1960s he branched out with a side business and built 2-3 custom homes annually for clients who owned their own lots.

Father & Son

George's son Randy Perkinson joined him in 1970. From 1972-1975 they built 35 homes (in partnership with George's brother Charles) in their first subdivision "Southern Estates" located in Prince George County. The father & son team continued building custom homes together and working on various masonry projects through the 1980s and early 1990s spanning across Richmond and the Tri Cities.

The Legacy

George retired in 1993 and passed away in 2009. But his legacy lives on. Today, Brian Perkinson proudly continues in the footsteps of his grandfather and father (Randy remains one his most knowledgeable and trusted construction advisors) with the same passion for craftsmanship and attention to detail. Perkinson Homes will always be a place where quality is valued over quantity and we truly believe that even the smallest details matter.


Our Philosophy

Perkinson Homes, Inc. is a custom home builder focusing on new homes, additions, and renovations. They design with the intent of meeting the individual needs of each client, enjoying the process of creating unique spaces that reflect the personality of the client. Their focus is on providing the best value per square foot possible; their standards are other builder’s upgrade. They also appreciate that when you build a home, you are not only buying a product, but also a service. The team at Perkinson works step-by-step with their clients throughout the entire process – from the design phase to selecting a lot – the team is ready to help. The construction process is scheduled well in advance and closely monitored to ensure that it goes smoothly and on time. They are also committed to responding quickly to address any questions that might arise during the process.

Perkinson Homes only employs the most qualified and respected subcontractors and has the ability to control the quality of the workmanship to the highest standards. Brian carefully selects his subcontractors to make sure their attitude and integrity align with the values that they hold important, while still maintaining a down-to-earth, low-stress approach to every project. As a client, you will get to know many of these folks on a first name basis. Because Perkinson Homes is a family owned business, they understand how personal building a home is and will not let anyone work on a client’s house that they wouldn’t want working on their own home. They have a passion for delivering a rewarding experience completely focused on the client, helping homeowners build the home or space of their dreams.


When Mike and I started looking for a new home, we did extensive research and met with numerous builders, both custom and production. Perkinson Homes offered the best value with the most flexibility in the industry. The process was transparent and we were intimately involved at every step. Our construction supervisor, Bennie, was incredible and embraced Perkinson's dedication to a quality product. At the end of the day, we not only have an incredible home, but also a number of friendships that will last a lifetime.

Brian, Regina, Bennie, and Julie THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts. You truly built our dream home!

Mike and Katie Rocawich

We are the proud owners of a "Perkinson Homes" built home in which we have owned for more than two years. Not only do we have a superbly constructed home, but the entire experience was actually enjoyable from beginning to end. Brian was always very helpful and informative and was prompt to answer any questions or concerns that we had during the entire building process.

Most importantly, we were extremely pleased by the professionalism, ethics, and genuine desire to build the best home while meeting our budget.

We would give our highest recommendation to Brian and Perkinson Homes.

Whit and Kate Morris

From the moment we met Brian, we felt comfortable with his ability to build us the home we wanted. He is a third generation builder, which says a lot about not only him, but his family as well.

Brian was willing in every way to make this home as custom as we wanted. We made some small structural changed to the plans in the beginning, in addition to a variety of changes and upgrades along the way. These changes were accepted easily and something we had not experienced before.

To me, one of the most refreshing things is how Brian responded when things didn't necessarily go as planned. He stood up for us as a buyer, and that will always mean more to me than any brick or stone put on a house. He was very easy to work with, and the product in the end spoke for itself. I highly recommend Perkinson Homes to anyone considering building a new home.
