About Us

It began as Georgia Tech college best friends and couples. After careers in corporate companies and boutique firms, Jim and Paige Ruhl and Derek and Ann Welch moved to the Lake Oconee to launch DreamBuilt. The perfect combination and compliment to one another, Paige leads the architectural planning, Ann coordinates selections and oversees the accounting while Jim and Derek provide estimating and scheduling, and are on your jobsite every day overseeing the entire building process.

"We were so pleased with our build that we have recommended Dreambuilt to many of our friends. Considering this is the 9th home we have lived in, we knew what we wanted our home to be, and Dreambuilt delivered."

− Patty Dailey

"We love our home and were very pleased with our DreamBuilt experience. Not expected but something very nice, is that they are willing to answer our phone calls after 3.5 years of living in the house, on the occasions when we have needed their advice on who to turn to in the local area for a minor repair here and there."

− Jane Hutterly

"Before selecting DreamBuilt we had looked at five or six other home builders. Our house has proven to be well-engineered and constructed over the past ten years. During this time frame, the other builders that we considered have left the area or gone out of business, confirming for us that we made a great decision in choosing DreamBuilt."
