Awards

Chantilly Home and Development Company is a State certified, Class A, General Contracting firm, operating under the license of Thomas G. Lierman. The company specializes in “on-your-lot” construction of residential homes, ranging from $225,000 to well over $1 million dollars. Other areas of company expertise include light commercial construction (such as retail strip centers), remodeling, and some developmental work, including a golf course in Houston, Texas. With primary operation in Pinellas County, the company has built in some of the area’s finest communities, including Cobb’s Landing on Lake Tarpon and Dolphin Cay on the Pinellas Bayway, and has even been featured in the St. Petersburg Times. In fact, since 1997 the company has won awards for every model it has built, including the most recent “Brook Haven” model, which won “The Grand Award” during the Spring 2004 Parade of Homes. Priced at $729,000, this home, which features both a main house and a guest cottage, had competed against 144 other models in 4 counties to receive this award.

Chantilly Home and Development Company manages its operation like most builders in the industry, yet has separated itself from them by having a licensed contractor, rather than a field superintendent, supervise the daily progress of homes under construction. This more personal approach to construction results in more caution being taken toward potential problems and greater emphasis being placed on quality, thus minimizing call-backs and future warranty service work. Further, the customer has the opportunity to work directly with the licensed contractor, from the design stage through completion, thereby reducing the potential for field errors due to missed communication.

Thomas G. Lierman has been the licensed contractor for Chantilly Homes since 1983, with previous experience working for such prestigious custom home builders as Homecraft of Houston, Texas and Rutenberg of Clearwater, Florida. He holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Engineering from the University of Kentucky as well as a Master’s Degree in Business Administration. He is a dedicated, conscientious, hard-working individual who is a stickler for detail. Since Chantilly Homes does not advertise heavily, the company’s tremendous success has been largely as a result of referrals from satisfied customers.
