The Schmid & Rhodes Way

Our Process

Our clients trust us to provide best-in-class craftsmanship and precision during every stage of the construction process. Working with some of the best architects, designers and craftsmen in the South, we have built some of the most beautiful and well-made homes in East Tennessee.

Listening To You

We are collaborators and partners first; here to guide you every step of the way. Describe your dreams and goals in complete detail with us. From there, we bring you a detailed project proposal that reflects intentional designs based on your needs and aspirations.

Creating A Budget

Now that we’ve determined whether you’re interested in a home that reflects a contemporary style, expresses an appreciation for a previously fashionable form, or shatters expectations of what a home can really be, it’s time for an introduction to some of East Tennessee’s finest craftsmen and architects.

Our team of interior designers, artisans and landscape architects will articulate the quality of life experience your home should offer into a detailed financial framework, with additional advice and guidance on budget-furthering opportunities.

Scheduling, Contracting & Permitting

Before the first shovel breaks ground on your new home site, our team will provide you with a step-by-step guide detailing the entire build schedule for all craftsmen, vendors and suppliers associated with your new home.


For us, there’s nothing more important than open, honest and clear communication. As we move throughout the home building process together, you’ll be introduced to a single point-of-contact at Schmid & Rhodes. With regular on-site meetings to address any immediate design or financial concerns, you will have peace of mind knowing that someone is dedicated to the success of your project, as well as being available day and night for additional consultation as you see fit.


Our rigorous inspection and construction standards, developed over the last thirty years, guarantee the craftsmanship of your high-end home. Our service-oriented style reflects in every action we take.

Caring For Investment

One final note on what makes Schmid & Rhodes the premier home builder in the East Tennessee area. After settling into your new home, you might decide on further renovations and remodeling. Our team handles those requests as well as any minor repairs or remodels so your new home remains in like-new condition for decades to come. Our team ensures that your investment will remain the original work of art it is.
