What We Do
Home renovation and home building in the Lake Oconee area is now nearly as big of a focus for our business as our home renovation and home building practice in Atlanta. In Lake Oconee Duke Development builds inside the gates of Harbor Club, Reynolds Plantation, Reynolds Landing, and Cuscowilla as well as outside of these community gates.
Before Duke Development I worked with companies that built restaurants, banks, and convenience stores throughout the southeast, and when I started Duke Development I really expected to do more of the same. We did build a few restaurants and other commercial projects here and there but our core work has been and still is renovating homes in the Buckhead and Midtown Atlanta area.
In 2000, I moved my family to the Lake Oconee area. This move provided a great environment for my kids to grow up and for all of us to be near my mom. For a while I commuted to the Atlanta office, a long commute to say the least. Falling in love with Lake Oconee I decided to grow our business there and opened an office in the area. Since then we have completed a multitude of new homes, one of which, built in Reynolds Plantation, was awarded the 2009 Lake Oconee Home of the Year. We have also dramatically expanded our renovation practice with a number of renovations of all sizes around the Lake area.
Expanding our business to include the Lake Oconee area has been a blessing for us and has been a great addition to our very stable core business in Atlanta.
