Easterling Fine Homes is recognized as a grounds-up design-build home builder in the Triangle area.

Jeff Easterling, our principal owner and builder, has worked in homebuilding for over 35 years. Early in his career, he worked with Berchtold Holzbau Gmbh., an Austrian homebuilder. He learned the homebuilding process from the ground up — from carpentry to brick masonry, cabinet making to design-build planning.

Today, he is known for his commitment to excellence and mastery of details. That degree of dedication sets him apart and has earned him the reputation of a true artisan.



Easterling Fine Homes is dedicated to improving homebuilding through green home technologies. Our homes use green techniques derived from proven construction philosophies.

Every home we build is at minimum a DUKE HERO® Certified home. The DUKE HERO® program qualifies homeowners for lower energy rates with DUKE ENERGY. Energy efficient choices in a home’s construction can reduce both energy bills and greenhouse emissions without sacrificing features, style or comfort.

That marriage of quality, efficiency, and sustainability is the bedrock of our entire design and construction philosophy. Our goal is to maintain the highest standards without compromising any aspect of the building process.

Implementing new, green technologies will significantly lower your energy costs while benefiting the environment. Some of these technologies include:

  • Sustainably-harvested lumber
  • Spray foam, Cellulose, or blown fiberglass insulation
  • Low-VOC products
  • Energy efficient windows
  • On-demand hot water
  • Energy Star appliances
  • Locally produced materials limiting transportation distances
