About Byrd Builders

Byrd Builders, Inc.

    You’ve chosen a site, drawn up the blueprints, and imagined the view from every room. Now it’s time to choose the builder who will bring your dreams to life, down to every last detail.

    Custom Contract Work Only

    Byrd Builders constructs custom homes on Kiawah and Seabrook Islands for the area’s most discerning residents. We build no more than two homes at a time, allowing us to devote our full attention to each client project. Performing only custom contract work protects our clients; unlike firms that engage in speculative building and then scramble to cover speculative losses with funds from their custom builds, we have always operated as a debt-free company.


    Byrd Builders is licensed by the South Carolina Department of Licensing and Labor Regulations (#RBB19457) as a home builder. We are members of both the Charleston Home Builders Association and the National Association of Home Builders. 

    Dedicated Bank Accounts

    For each custom homebuilding project, Byrd Builders opens a job-specific bank account. All funds are deposited into, and all bills are paid from this dedicated bank account.

    Contract Options

    The majority of our projects are performed on a Cost Plus Fee basis. We believe in complete transparency in our business operations: our Cost Plus Fee contracts are an open book, and all trade discounts are passed through to homeowners. While Cost Plus Fee contracts are our standard agreements, Lump Sum or Guaranteed Contract arrangements are available to homeowners who prefer them.

    Financial Reporting

    When you work with Byrd Builders, you’ll always know where your project stands with our current financial reports. Sent via email, these detailed reports show all checks written to date and include a job cost summary reflecting the original budget, forecast, incurred costs, variance and the projected cost to complete the home.

    Virtual Progress Tracking

    Long distance relationships are no problem. We keep out-of-town homeowners up to date on construction progress with weekly photos uploaded to private online photo album.


    At the start of each project, a detailed construction schedule is prepared and followed throughout construction. Byrd Builders founder Matt Byrd serves as contractor and superintendent on every job, ensuring a seamless, on-schedule build process.

    Around-the-clock service

    When facing a project as complex as building a custom home, homeowners often have questions outside of “normal” business hours. Feel free to contact us outside after hours and receive the outstanding service we’re known.

    Quality Subcontractors

    We know that our work is only as good as the partners we work with, so we have built longstanding relationships with the best in the business. We select only those subcontracting companies whose owners share our hands-on approach to client work and we personally supervise them on our building sites.

    Property Management

    After the completion of your dream home, you can count on the builders you trust to protect and maintain your investment. We are proud to offer homeowners a full array of property management services through our sister company, ESPM. Ready to discuss what we can build together? Contact us at 843-243-0343.
