Drees Homes expands Build on Your Lot program ahead of centennial anniversary

Fort Mitchell, Ky. — Drees Homes, an award-winning national home builder headquartered in Northern Kentucky, is expanding its Build on Your Lot operations companywide. This focused expansion revolves around plans related to the company’s approaching centennial celebration in 2028. Through the Build on Your Lot program, Drees empowers homebuyers to move beyond traditional subdivisions, constructing their dream homes on cherished land, within upscale custom communities or in historic neighborhoods.


This month, Drees introduces “Elevate by Drees Homes,” a new name that underscores the enhanced building flexibility of this program. Homeowners can elevate their home building experience, whether they desire five acres, a custom community or rebuilding on an existing site. Leveraging the company’s legendary craftsmanship and 95+ years of expertise, Drees strives to have homes delivered in less time and at a fraction of the price when compared to the traditional custom home builder.


The Build on Your Lot program has gained popularity across suburbs and redevelopment opportunities alike. It is currently offered in seven out of the ten metros where Drees is currently active, including Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky, Cleveland, Indianapolis, Nashville, Raleigh, Austin and Dallas.


Executive Vice President of Homebuilding Operations Dan Jones highlighted the program’s influence on sales and profitability. “As we approach our Centennial celebration, Elevate by Drees Homes allows us to expand our volume and compete more directly with custom home builders, providing consumers with a streamlined selection process and more efficient construction timeline,” he added.


Drees Homes currently presents a diverse range of housing options spanning condos, townhomes, paired villas and single-family homes. Prices start in the $200s and extend over $2 million.
