We won BEST CONTRACTOR in Orange/Chatham County and Durham County in 2019, won Orange/Chatham County in 2016, 2018, and 2019, and were a finalist in 2017, 2021, and 2022.


Actual Size Builders has a “family” of subcontractors that work together on every job, so they know what to expect of each other, and we know what to expect of them. Our family includes Sparrow & Sons Plumbing, CWJ Heating & Air, Electric Avenue, Hansell Painting, and Walker Brown Roofing. We do not shop around estimates to multiple subcontractors to get the cheapest bid. We are loyal to our subs, and the loyalty is mutual.

We keep items out of the landfills by donating to the Habitat for Humanity ReStore.


Actual Size Builders uses a cost-plus model for our projects — the customer receives an invoice only for the work that has been done. This invoice includes a bill from every subcontractor, an invoice for all materials purchased, and a printout of our carpenters’ hours on the job. This ensures transparency in the billing process, and gives our customers peace of mind knowing where every dollar goes.
