For over 20 years Custom Home Builder Charlottesville's Cobb Construction, Inc. has made dreams come true. For most people, the biggest investment in their lifetime will be their home. Cecil Cobb Construction builds custom homes to the highest quality and attention to detail in the greater Charlottesville area. Though studies show that building a home can be stressful, Cecil's custom home construction makes it a pleasurable experience. Whether you have a detailed plan or just an idea, he will guide you through the process of home design and deciding important details that will distinguish your home and make it truly yours. His core values of integrity and honesty are reflected in every aspect of his work with homeowners, subcontractors, and suppliers. Custom home builder Cobb Construction received an award from ProBuild three years in a row, 2010 to 2012, for being one of the top ten producers in the Charlottesville area.

Prior to starting his own custom home building company, Cecil Cobb spent almost twenty years in commercial construction, working with contract teams to build some of the largest projects in the state of Virginia and gaining expertise in sales, estimating and project management. He has worked with renowned contractors such as Turner International, Morrison-Knudson (the company that built the Hoover Dam), Gilbane Building Company, and Fluor-Daniel, at the time the largest contractor in the world.

Cecil Cobb is a leader in his community. Born and raised in Fluvanna, he was elected to serve on the Fluvanna County Board of Supervisors for twelve years, and provided leadership as Chairman of the Board for the last five of those years, until he retired in 2008. During this time he was Director of Emergency Services for the county, and also served on the Boards of Parks and Recreation, the Fork Union Sanitary District Advisory Board, and Economic Development. He served on numerous county building committees for the county’s new courthouse, school, public safety building, Palmyra fire department, and library. He coached Dixie Youth Baseball for ten years, and served as President of the League for several years. Earlier he served as a volunteer firefighter for ten years, a first responder, and was elected President of the Fluvanna County Fire Department.

His son is attending business school in San Diego, and he enjoys country living with his wife and two dogs in Fork Union. In his spare time, Cecil enjoys restoring antique autos, boating, turkey hunting, and racing.

Thank you, thank you, thank you! to Cecil Cobb Construction, Inc. Asking you to build our dream home eleven years ago this month has been the best home decision of our lives. We appreciate your listening to our needs and going out of your way to make the house beautiful. We encourage one and all who plan to build… Let Cecil build it!

Eileen and Lowell Vaught

If I ever build a house again, Cecil Cobb will be the first person I call.

As an Architect, Cecil Cobb and Cobb Construction rank among two or three contractors I’ve worked with who stand out as superior builders and collaborators.  Working with Cecil was absolutely painless, full of the satisfaction of seeing impeccable craftsmanship and organization support our design work, and totally devoid of the problems that so often complicate relationships during construction.  My project was a three hour drive from my office, and I looked forward to every site visit.  I’m sure the owner of the house Cecil built for us would agree with me full heartedly.  I’d be happy to provide a very enthusiastic reference for Cecil any time someone wants to call me.  Kudos for Cobb Construction!

Cecil Cobb of Cobb Construction recently completed our own designed custom built house. Cecil worked with us through the architecture and build process and made some well appreciated improvements to the design during the build process as opportunities arose.  Cecil is a terrific builder. He’s very easy to work with, has a great sense of humor, is honest and has great integrity, is personally involved in all the details, does quality construction and requires the same from his carpenters and contractors. Cecil and his carpenters asked for our input whenever there were design questions, then worked through our wishes adding their suggestions with no reluctance, a rare quality in a builder. We highly recommend Cobb Construction.

We had several choices of builders for our home in Stanardsville, Virginia, but we are so glad we chose Cobb Construction. The quality of construction, the willingness to work with us on plan changes needed to make the home what we wanted, and making the process of building a new home a pleasure were all very much appreciated. Every visitor is very complimentary about the finished product. If we were to ever build another home in this area, Cecil Cobb would be our contractor.

Cecil Cobb built my guest house in 2003-2004 and helped guide me through both the design and construction phase.  It was a complete success and has been an important addition to my estate.

The experience my husband and I enjoyed while working with Cecil on our current house, was vastly different from that of working with another builder 14 years ago.  This time I knew to look for someone with whom I was comfortable on many levels:  someone with a pleasant personality, a sense of humor, honesty, integrity, attention to detail, high standards expected of his carpenters and contractors, and a quality product with fair pricing.  Along with having all of these traits and standards himself, Cecil wants the experience to be a fun one, and he wants his customer to be happy. I cannot imagine trusting such a huge personal investment and months of collaboration to anyone else in the business.
