The Art of Homebuilding with Compass Homes

Finding the perfect place to call home, one that meets your practical needs but also reflects your unique personality & style, can be difficult. While there are countless options on the real estate market, from cookie-cutter subdivisions to historic fixer-uppers, there’s something truly special about going through the homebuilding process and moving into your own brand-new custom-built home.
After all, your home is an expression of who you are and the life that your family has created.

At Compass Homes, we don’t build houses, we build homes – the kind with warmth, grace, charm, and character. We are a luxury boutique custom home builder, which means we choose to focus on building a small number of outstanding homes each year, rather than divide our attention among dozens, if not hundreds, of projects at any given time. We do not remodel, and we are not a home project company. We focus, solely, on building the best custom homes with the highest quality craftsmanship. We build forever homes.

Compass Homes – A Legacy of Craftsmanship

We are proud to be recognized as a Certified Graduate Builder (CGB) by the National Association of Home Builders, recognizing our dedication to the craft of homebuilding, as well as, to the management of our business. Our unique process, commitment to continuous improvement, and desire to balance efficiency, livability, and details in our homes make us the homebuilder of choice in Central Ohio.
While Compass Homes has been the recipient of numerous awards from the BIA and Parade of Homes over the years, it is really the passion of our entire team for the art of homebuilding that makes us just a little different from others in our industry. The owner of Compass, Mark Braunsdorf, expresses it best …
“I really can’t imagine doing anything else with my life. I am remarkably lucky that I have been able to do what I have wanted to do from the age of 3. I can still remember my very first day on the job when they handed me blueprints and I thought, “I can’t believe they are paying me to do this.”
More Thought Per Square Foot™

This is not just a motto, but the foundation of the homebuilding experience at Compass Homes. Our award-winning designers bring endless creativity to each project, and we are continuously pushing ourselves to design spaces that our creatively efficient and that can grow along with your family.

Moreover, we take the time to ensure that each home we build, meets or exceeds our clients’ needs and wants by hiring the best craftspeople and working with outstanding building partners, who provide the finest details and finishing touches.

Sustainable Building Practices

Not only are our homes well thought out and full of warmth, grace, charm, and character, but we also follow sustainable building principles to ensure your home’s efficiency, as well. In fact, sustainability is so important to us that we are a Certified Green Professional™, which recognizes builders, remodelers, and other industry professionals who incorporate green and sustainable building principles into homes — without driving up the cost of construction.

Incorporating sustainable building principles – or green building products & practices – into our homebuilding, results in high-quality homes and long-term financial savings for our brand-new homeowners, as well as supports a healthy community and natural environment.
