We build dream homes. The Home you've always Wanted A house is just a place, but home is a feeling.

Under our ‘roof’, we never underestimate our role in helping you build the home you’ve always wanted. Passionate Home Builders Strong Foundations start with the best materials, and we apply that same philosophy to our foundation — our team. The frame of our ‘house’ is the expertise and undeniable integrity of the craftsmen and women who make up Copper Builders. Together, we build homes that stand the test of time, both aesthetically and structurally. We Build Dream Homes Copper Builders harmonizes an ideal location, thoughtful architecture, and your specific needs and desires to create something more than just the sum of its parts – your home. Our Story Wade Miller grew up in Charlotte and dreamed of leaving a lasting impact on his city, a legacy. After college, Wade found himself uninspired building cookie cutter homes while working for a large national builder. That company was driven by profits, metrics, and bottom lines. It was clear to Wade that there was an essential piece missing in the homebuilding puzzle – the people. Realizing he couldn’t create the legacy he envisioned without a change, Wade started Copper Builders. Read More Culture is key at Copper Builders. Tim Pratt, President of Copper Builders, now guides decisions on the same founding principles Wade envisioned. Pratt and Miller have known each other and worked together for years; both are now married and raising their families in the Charlotte area.They care deeply about the reputation of the company; that drives them to do right by their clients and their team. Together they have created a team environment that allows for the human connection with each client. The Copper team is empowered to be hands on and inspired by the company’s mission to build beautiful homes. In return, the team is rewarded by a family centred culture that encourages personal and financial success, transparency and the ability to work with a group of exceptional people who are dedicated to each other’s success.Since the start, Copper Builders has focused on connection with its clients. We focus on engaging, interacting and learning about who our clients are. The end result is a beautiful, functional and fitting, custom home. It’s been measured, cut, and sewn to be tailored specifically to that client. Given the very nature of giant national builders, this is something they cannot sustainably achieve.Wade cares deeply about the Charlotte community that inspired him to create Copper Builders. Copper has strong roots in organizations such as Habitat for Humanity, Appalachian Service Project, and even the popular TV show, Extreme Makeover Home Edition with Ty Pennington. We have built hundreds of beautiful luxury homes, but by far the most compelling and rewarding aspect is our strong connection to the community. The community we all live, work and play in ourselves. It is humbling that our work will continue to impact and influence Charlotte for decades to come.Trust, responsible management practices and excellent communication are important to Copper Builders. But, ultimately, what matters most is people. “The connection between people and community is what sets us apart and drives us to be the best at what we do.”We believe that where your family lives should be meaningful. The home where your family makes its memories, where your children grow up, where all the important milestones in your life happen, should be in a community that fits your family and your lifestyle. Copper thrives on building beautiful homes and communities. The Copper team will invest the time and effort to make your home a place created especially for your family.
