North Alabama's "on your land" homebuilding expert.

Trust your dream to Compass Homes.

Once you’ve purchased the land in your ideal area, Compass Homes works with you, discussing all the implications and possibilities for your new house.

Let us build a home on your land that fits all your specifications. Compass Homes understands that building a home is a process, and during that process, ideas are subject to change. Rather than developing cookie-cutter neighborhoods, we work closely with you to create your perfect house.

We monitor progress, relay information, and check back with our clients periodically throughout the construction of your home to make sure everyone has the same vision in mind. More than that, we want you to be involved in each decision, giving you the power to define every element of the design. Our attention to detail allows us to execute your ideas.

North Alabama’s “On Your Land” Homebuilding Experts



Compass Homes’ primary product is quality and affordable “on your land” home building services. We are North Alabama’s “on your land” homebuilding expert. Many builders specialize in building on improved lots in master-planned communities that already have the infrastructure in place (water, gas, electrical, sewer, etc.). Compass Homes specializes in building on land that requires some work to turn it into a good home site. We can navigate site preparation, installing and permitting sceptic systems, and other inspections and permits unique to undeveloped lots. Compass also offers a variety of floor plans that can be adapted to the topography of the buyer’s lot. Plans may be modified to better reflect the unique character of the lot – to take advantage of views, work around mature trees, or benefit from passive solar heat gain. Put us to work and we will turn your land into a great place to build your home…and we make it easy!

Affordable Customization



We maintain a library of plans that can be customized to meet customer needs. Plans can be modified to create efficient, workable designs. A number of upgrades and options are available with each plan and the Model Homes Center gives customers an opportunity to experience some of the plans and options in person. By offering basic designs at a base price that can be customized through upgrades and options, Compass Homes offers affordable customization.

Our Process



Making the homebuilding process as easy as possible and providing communication and customer service throughout the project makes Compass Homes different from other home builders. Compass Homes’ building services can be summarized in a five step “on your land” homebuilding process:

  1. Individual lot selections assessment and purchase assistance
  2. Home placement consultation
  3. Design assistance and planning
  4. On site design selection
  5. Ongoing customer construction support and communication
The Design Center makes it possible for customers to make design choices on-site rather than visiting multiple separate vendors.
