Keystone Custom Homes Expands Into The Carolinas

Three-time recipient of America’s Best Builder Award Keystone Custom Homes, based in Lancaster PA, and Charlotte NC based Evans Coghill Homes are proud to announce the decision to join under the Keystone brand, effective October 1, 2022. This powerful alliance combines Evans Coghill's local market expertise in the Carolinas with Keystone's outstanding homebuilding processes, caring customer service, and award-winning innovation to offer custom homes at an exceptional value through the implementation of their buyer-driven design process and strategic land positioning.

The desire to expand their collective reach into the Carolinas and across the east coast is the result of a personal and cultural match between the two companies and founders, Alan Banks, and Jeff Rutt who outlined their vision over a bowl of the iconic Southern dessert, banana pudding in a local eatery in Belmont NC, underscoring their common goal to fund faith-driven stewardship across the globe and share the perfect metaphor for magnifying the importance of ‘home.’

Along with the insistence that both homebuilding and their initiatives of ‘hope’ can restore dignity and purpose to the individual and the community at large they stand ready to put their beliefs into action. “This exciting changeover isn’t just a shift in company name or a boast about product, although both are vital to our identity…” says Division President Alan Banks. “It is a new chance to grow our goodwill and maintain a presence of home building excellence for generations to come.”
