About the Builders

In 2001, Paula and Lute Simley created a distinctive niche in the home building industry and have been putting their unique stamp on neighborhoods ever since. Lute, who has 30 years of home building expertise and Paula, a former cosmetologist, have combined their creative energies as the husband/wife team and owners of Paula Rae Homes.

Believing in the "not so big" philosophy of home building has earned them the 2004, 2005 & 2007 "Best of Show" awards given by the local Home Builders Association during the Parade of Homes. They also received the 2005 and 2006 "Excellence in Home Design" national awards given by the National Home Builders Building Systems Council.

Finding their niche was simply a concept of borrowing from the past. Their style of homes uses many ideas and details from the Arts and Crafts Era of the late 1920's and 30's. Practicality and usable space combined with attention to detail are the answers to some of the needs that today's families are asking for. These concerns are thoughtfully planned for in every floor plan they design.

Lute with his many years of experience is the designer, and Paula compliments him by putting the female touch into their work resulting in homes where both of their talents are easily recognized.

They invite you to visit any of their homes where you'll be welcomed on the front porch- one of their favorite trademarks!
