Who We Are


As a Lake Norman Custom Home Builder, Tim Whelan's education in construction started early. With both his father and his uncles involved in home building, Tim grew up immersed in the industry. And what attracted him to his dad's business then is the same thing he loves about his own company today -- the creativity of home building and fostering good relationships with his clients.

Tim and his wife and partner, Ann, embrace the idea that they aren't just building a house, they're building the place where a family lives. With her background in art and design, Ann is available to assist clients with the interior selections for their home. Lowcountry and traditional architecture are the signature styles of T. Whelan Homes.

Drawing from 38 years of experience and service on the Lake Norman Home Builders Association's Board of Directors, Tim prides himself on offering clients creativity in design and the flexibility to provide the perfect floor plan for each homeowner.
