Since 1983 when Dana Ennis first incorporated his construction company, he has been holding to a high standard of professionalism and integrity. He takes pride in his company’s reputation as honest, conscientious and knowledgeable. When we build or renovate a home for a client, there is only one result we strive for, and that is “raving satisfaction.” Our repeat business is a sign that we have done well in that area.

Customers keep coming back to Ennis Construction. The reasons are varied, but it all comes down to providing a quality product at a fair price. Dana says, “You’ll find our pricing is fair and very competitive. Quality construction needn’t cost more. When deciding on a contractor, always consider that superior materials and workmanship may cost more up front, but in the long run your home holds up better, uses less energy, and is worth more, if and when you choose to sell.” That is why building an Ennis Construction Home is a wise and sound investment in your family’s comfort and its future. 

Ennis Construction has been on the cutting edge of “Green Building concepts" since the mid 1980’s. Energy efficiency, superior insulation, non toxic and environmentally friendly building materials, are all part of an approach and a philosophy that they bring to each construction project.  Ennis Construction balances “Green Building Concept” with elegant and sophisticated details that are a trademark of the nation’s finest home builders. Comfort and convenience are never neglected for the sake of environmental responsibility. “A home can capture history, conserve energy and precious environmental resources, and yet be a statement of simple beauty and elegance.” Dana has said.

Quality materials, fixtures and components are a must. Some materials are new, some reclaimed depending on the taste and wishes of the client.  We provide custom cabinetry, period and reproduction custom mill work as well as built-in wall units, bookcases, window treatments and furniture.

Our team of exceptionally experienced master carpenters and craftsmen guarantee superior quality. In addition to our own in-house employees, over the last 25 years we have worked closely with several local sub-contractors: masons, electricians, landscapers, etc. and have developed one of the finest construction teams in the area.

The client is included in every step of the process, this is key to customer satisfaction. Making sure the customers wishes are fulfilled. Your satisfaction is our goal. From the beginning stages of design and planning, we can assist or provide you with all the permits, landscaping, site engineering, water, and sewage that your particular project requires.We produce and follow a meticulously managed budget. Provide progress pictures to the client and updates on scheduling. We are known to be on-time and on-budget and strive to keep that reputation.
