The MacBuilt Mission

MacBuilt Homes was created in 2016 with the desire to bring a fresh perspective of the construction and renovation process to the residents of Metro Atlanta. A common theme among people having recently dealt with a construction project is poor communication and clarity. Through the use of unique software, collaborative online tools, and constant communication, MacBuilt Homes looks to remove the negative stigma surrounding construction projects and turn each and every project into a pleasant experience with a beautiful outcome.
