Learn what it’s like to build a custom home with Empire in Charlotte

Empire’s Design + Build program was designed to make the lifestyle you’ve always wanted possible in the home you’ve always dreamed of owning. For homeowners Dr. Kelly and Dr. Jim Meek, who customized the Grayson floor plan, this meant crafting a tailored space that included an open-concept kitchen and family room for entertaining, a rec room for their kids to play in, and an impressive outdoor area with a fireplace.

The Meek Family Home

A mid-toned wood adds warmth to the Meek family home, while a neutral color on the walls and on the upper kitchen cabinets leaves room for creative decorating. Pops of blue in various rooms of the home — from the dining room to the premier suite and lower level of the family room — add a punch of color, while rustic ceiling beams, as well as shiplap and brick accents add visual interest.

“When we decided to build a custom home, we looked at several different options and ultimately decided to go with this builder because we could get the custom home with the efficiencies, the buying power and the ability to walk through the model homes. All of that together made for a great situation.” — Dr. Jim & Dr. Kelly Meek
