Who We Are

Layton Home Builders is a full-service design and build construction company based in Chowan County, North Carolina. The Layton family works hard to ensure that each client receives the best experience possible.


In 1990, Mike Layton, a second generation carpenter, began Mike Layton's Vinyl Siding Incorporated. Over the next thirteen years, he fostered a reputation as dependable, hard working, and honest, allowing his business to expand into framing and trim work.


Mike’s oldest son, Chris Layton, earned an Associates degree in Architectural Technology from Pitt Community College in 2001, and graduated from East Carolina University in 2002 with a degree in Construction Management. Chris joined his father in creating Layton Home Builders, a full service design and build team in January of 2003.


A.J. Layton, Mike’s youngest son, has joined the family business, bringing a degree in Business Administration from Campbell University.



Despite the demand in residential home construction Layton Home Builders still specializes in everything from window replacements to the construction of your dream home. We are willing to work with and for you no matter how big or small the job may be.


Layton Home Builders provides the best in new home construction from concept to construction. The design-build concept means that the designer and project manager will be onsite together to ensure that your home is built to specification. This approach eliminates miscommunication between design and implementation. This gives LHB a definitive advantage over contractors who must interpret blueprints without the benefit of working with the designer.


Even if you already have blueprints, there is no substitute for having the designer onsite to make sure the plans are followed correctly.



As a full-service residential construction company, we want to make the building process more understandable to all of our clients. That is why we have compiled a list of questions designed to make the process clear and enjoyable for you.


Do I need to have plans already picked out?

No, we provide in-house designs.


What if I already have a set of plans I like?

That's not a problem. Our designer can sit down with you and look at what you like and then make changes accordingly.


How long does it take from start to finish to build a house?

Building times vary tremendously according to size and design. However, we can look at your plans and the changes you want to make and estimate accordingly.


What is the cost per square foot to build a new home?

The cost per square foot varies from house to house, therefore, it is difficult to give a flat per square foot price. Depending on the extent of accessories and amenities within the home the cost per square foot could change dramatically.

Thank you!...For all you've done to make it possible. You are incredibly talented!"

"The best asset of this business is customer service." . . . "The best part was that we made the right decision! There is not another builder in the area that can compete with the quality, skill, attention to detail, communication, care follow through, and end product, that you provide your clients." . . . "I have been committed to having the Layton's build my three homes. Maybe there will be a fourth."

"I could not be more satisfied." . . . "LAYTON HOME BUILDERS always addressed issues in a straight forward manner and early to prevent them from becoming problems." . . . "The best part of LAYTON HOME BUILDERS was communication, follow through, and  the Father-Son's team."
