The P.L. Lyons Way

The artist William Morris once said, “Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful.” At P.L. Lyons, we are committed to designing a home that marries utility and beauty to create the haven that has been in your imagination for so long. 

With our commitment to custom building – and excellence above all – we will walk with you through the entire journey of building or remodeling your luxury home. Starting from the very beginning, we take your ideas, whether drawn on a napkin or still to be conceptualized, and we craft them into a vision that will bring your dreams into reality.

We’ll curate a fully rendered design that is based on your carefully chosen tastes and preferences before taking your project from concept to completion. We can do the same for your commercial structure too, as we have supported many business owners in the Louisville area since the 1970’s.

At P.L. Lyons, we’re much more than experienced craftsmen of high-end custom homes, we’re a family who understands the significance of having a place that feels safe and personal to you. If you choose us for custom building or remodeling, you’ll have an entire team that is dedicated to serving you.

Starting from the very beginning, we take your ideas and craft them into a vision that will bring your dreams into reality.

Our History

We’ve been building custom homes for 50 years. Everything we do is built upon our team. We’ve been working together for a long time– through good markets and bad. Through those years, we’ve continued a legacy for our unique building projects and excellent service. We started small, helping local Louisville families with their homes. Today, we’ve built hundreds of homes in multiple cities.

We are proud to be known as a company that does things the right way the first time. You’ll never have to worry about our team getting the work completed and with great attention to the little things too!


We love being active in our community and wholeheartedly believe in giving back. It’s not only a part of our personal lives, but we integrate it into our work. We’ve partnered with local schools, churches, and more. Our motivation is and always will be because of who we are and what we believe. We’re also happy to collaborate with other businesses and honored when they help share our story with others. Let us know if there’s an opportunity in the community you’d like to share with us.
