Steve Ellis, President

Steve Ellis has been in new home construction since 1999 when he started Countryside Homes in Danville, VA. From 2006 until 2015 he served as General Construction Manager for one of the largest custom home building companies in Central Virginia. Prior to building new homes, Steve’s company, Country Living Land Development Corp, bought large land parcels and subdivided them into “mini-estates”.

Prior to starting Ellis Homes with his son Kyle, Steve co-founded Craftsman Custom Home Builders with Joe Hepler, together building more than 150 homes throughout southwestern Virginia, before Joe’s retirement and that company settling with new ownership.
