About Us

Hovis Custom Builders, Inc. is guided by years of experience, innovation, vision and passion in the custom building industry.  Dan Hovis, president and founder established the business in 1993 and decided to build with steel framing thus eliminating termite infestations.  The company grew and research told him to incorporate energy efficiency into all our homes and that's the time ICF Block became the outside wall structure and steel framing was used for the interior.  The success continued and today we have built over 100 custom homes and never built the same floor plan twice.


Dan currently holds the position as Vice Chairman of the E-Council of Northeast Florida Builders Association and is recognized by JEA and NEFBA as the leader in the Green building movement. He not only has a state of Florida contractor's license but continues to keep his CPA & Brokers' license current.  In addition to those accreditations, Hovis Custom Builders, Inc. is an Energy Star Partner® builder, a BuildSmart® partner with Florida Power & Light, and a Green Build® partner with JEA.


Our expertise is in our innovative building practices, specializing in Insulating Concrete Forms (ICF Block), light gauge steel framing, spray foam insulation, Geothermal and  multi-speed  HVAC systems with sophisticated zoning, the capability to produce FREE hot water, and numerous other technologies that enhance a home not only structurally but make the interior breath takingly exquisite. 



"You don't just live in a Hovis custom built home, you live well."
