About Chuck Sullivan Homes

In 2002, he demolished his own house and built a new home; he has been through the process and understands how it impacts your daily life. In 2004, Chuck started his own company specializing in building homes in established neighborhoods.

Chuck Sullivan Homes has never built the same house twice and has won the Custom Builder Award of Excellence for every home we have built. No other builder can make this claim. We have won in almost every category: custom, speculative, traditional, contemporary, and transitional architectural styles. We are grateful for this acknowledgment by our peers in the building industry and especially proud that we have demonstrated our quality and versatility.

The Maryland Building Industry Association includes thousands of local building industry professionals. Each year they sponsor a competition entitled the Custom Builder Award of Excellence. Entries are evaluated by a panel of judges on site design, neighborhood compatibility, quality of workmanship, sensitivity to the environment, and architectural features. The judges evaluate hundreds of homes located in Maryland, Virginia, and D.C. The following is a list of awards received by Chuck Sullivan Homes.
