From thoughtful detail and personalization to inspired design and high-end finishes, we’re committed to bringing your vision to life. After all, you’re not simply looking for a place to live, you’re looking for a place to call home.
NEW HOME CONSTRUCTION
The construction experts at Blake Building collaborate with you to design and construct your custom home. From single-family homes to multi-family units, Blake Building manages the process of turning your vision into reality.
At Blake Building, we know the vision of your home comes with expectations. We design your home around your dream of an open floor plan to spend more time with the family, a gourmet kitchen to whip up your favorite meal or a tranquil bathroom retreat to unwind after a long day. Our customers are the center of our process.
With Blake Building, you are not picking from a set of pre-designed floor plans; your home is custom-designed with your needs in mind. Do you know the area of Tampa you want to live in, but don’t know how to find the ideal lot? We can help you find that perfect place to call home in the bay area.
We partner with architectural firms and want you to enjoy the process as much as the result. Your years of happiness begin with the design process, and Blake Building understands that. We are accessible, reputable, successful, and take pride in our work.
When your vision meets our expertise,
a dream home becomes a reality.
That doesn’t mean you have to buy new or build from scratch, either. Blake Building has the right experts to give you the style you want to create the home you love. Whether restoring an old bungalow or tackling a home renovation of an existing space, our team is dedicated to making the process as seamless as possible.
After a few years and some major life changes like new babies, growing teenagers, and home office needs, people often find themselves looking for one thing - more space. Home additions are a great way to add square footage, but only a well-built and well-designed addition will add to your home’s value. Adding to the existing footprint of your home is a major undertaking and requires the precise coordination of an architect and builder, as well as detailed knowledge of building standards and regulations. Blake Building can create that valuable added space without compromising the quality or current style of the original home.
Home Resoration & Renovation
Neighborhoods like Palma Ceia, Hyde Park, Beach Park and Seminole Heights evoke the traditional charm of bungalow houses and colonial homes. While these neighborhoods may provide the location you want, its houses may be lacking the modern conveniences homeowners have come to expect.
Perhaps your current home is nearly perfect, but leaves a few must-have boxes unchecked. Maybe the space is dated, choppy or lacking function. Whether it’s the property, neighborhood or potential you love, Blake Building will incorporate your individual style with cohesive design features to give your home a finished look without the addition of square footage. By collaborating with the Tampa Bay area’s premium design partners and providing a superb attention to detail, we help turn your idea into a reality, both on-time and within budget.
We stand behind the quality of work we provide, but don’t take our word for it. The greatest compliment we receive is a referral from those whom we have built for in the past. They have been through the new home construction, renovation, or restoration process and can speak to the quality experience they received.
