The Action Builders Team
Action Builders is the Basement Expert in Madison County. We have many years of experience building basement homes and have thoroughly researched the best products and processes to use. We have experience building basement homes on what could be considered very challenging lots including rock, slope development, and steep elevations. We can also incorporate a safe room in the basement built from concrete poured walls and rebar and/or insulated concrete forms (ICF). Why trust your basement to just anyone? Call the basement expert with proven experience.
Of course basement homes are not the only homes we build….we also build raised block fill and crawl space homes. We build our custom homes to match our customers wants and needs.
Some features we can incorporate in your new custom home are gun safe, floor safe, hidden room, elevator, swimming pool (indoor and outdoor), media room, outdoor kitchen, putting green, retractable screens for your covered porches, steam shower, generator …the list of possibilities is absolutely endless! This list does not include all the “green” energy savings features and aging-in-place features we can also incorporate.
Our custom homes start at 3100 SF heated and cooled and we have built custom homes that were over 15,000 SF. We are not accepting any remodel projects and are solely focusing on new construction.
The prospect of building a new home can be intimidating. Mark walks his customer through the process every step of the way to make it a fun and enjoyable adventure. Mark is glad to meet any potential customer at one of our current homes under construction where they can see the process in different stages of construction.
Mark earned a residential home builders license in January of 2003. Before custom building homes he worked as a remodeler for over 10 years part-time and then full-time.
