Design / Build

At C&C Partners, you can rely on our proven, team-oriented approach – a seamless design/build process that ensures high quality results in every phase of the project

A Seamless Transition from Design to Build

C&C Partners has mastered the art and craft of custom home building. Founded in 1987 by architect Patrick Cunningham and general contractor Michael Cunningham, we’ve brought every element of new home construction in-house to ensure a seamless design/build process.

Our Home Design Program

To ensure we don’t miss anything, our custom home-building process begins with a 30-page questionnaire. We’ll ask specific questions to firmly grasp your vision, eliminate miscommunication and save you time further down the road.

We also welcome you to provide examples and pictures of homes you’ve seen and loved. Our skilled team will combine your inspiration with our industry expertise to create something exceptional: a C&C Partners home.

Let’s talk about the Pyramid house, part two!

Last time we talked about why we couldn’t connect the new structure to the existing. Today we’re talking about another code issue we faced and what this room eventually became. 

We weren’t allowed to touch more 50% of the house, or it would trigger us to tear down and start new. So we had to move the primary rooms like the kitchen, family and dining room into the new structure. 

Luckily, since we couldn’t do 3 stories here, but were able to have a large maximum height, we had 11’ of ceiling height to play with in the new great room. 

In this great room, off the kitchen, which used to be the second floor deck, we designed it to be the dining room. Surrounded by floor to ceiling windows, this great room truly is a beauty! 

What else do you want to know about this house? ☺️
