Tony-Carnaggio About Us

If you’re looking to build a custom home for you and your family, Lady Street Builders is one of the BEST custom builders in Columbia.  You’ll want to know all about us, so here goes.

From Builder Tony Carnaggio

It is the mission of our business to listen to our clients, build their vision and exceed their expectations. Clear, consistent and ongoing communication is the most important tool we have to create the comfort level our clients deserve — throughout the entire homebuilding process. We are here to realize their dreams, within their budget and timeline. Our clients can count on us to be there from the initial groundbreaking to the very last lick of paint.

Even after nearly 25 years as a residential builder, my passion for the construction process has not changed. For me, it’s fun every day.  It is a great honor to build beautiful homes where future generations will create lasting memories. I give the building process everything I have:  I use and share my many years of experience, and it allows me to provide thoughtful building and design solutions.

The satisfaction of seeing a happy family move into their home is powerful stuff. I really enjoy getting to know our clients during the building process, and to help them translate their visions into the perfect home. I am honored that our peers respect and recognize the quality of our work. Though Lady Street Builders is known for its beautiful Craftsman and traditional homes both custom and spec, I also enjoy the challenge of building in a variety of other styles.  We build in some of the most sought-after neighborhoods in the area.


Lady Street Builders combines our expertise with your vision to create the home you’ve always dreamed of. A vision can be difficult to explain, and building a home, although very exciting, can also be a bit daunting. Your investment in building a home should be rooted in trust and rapport.  I hope to cultivate that with you and all of my clients to produce the home you’ve always wanted.  I hope that you will give me a call for a personal consultation.

Tell us about the home you’ve always imagined. We want to learn more about you and your ultimate wish-list. What style of home are you drawn to? How many bedrooms will you need, what type of layout, and what size home will suit your lifestyle? Once you’ve shared your vision with us, we can begin to narrow down the details and determine the starting point. At times, it may make sense to begin with one of our existing floor plans and customize it. Sometimes the better option may be to start completely from scratch, or work from plans you may have. If you have previous plans, whether they are blueprints from an architect or scribbles on a napkin, we can bring those sketches to life. Whichever option you choose, Lady Street Builders will be there to openly communicate with you during each phase.


Once we have a better understanding of your vision, we can refine your new home plan. We will build on our earlier conversations about room layout, architectural style, amenities, energy efficiency, and other details that are important to your lifestyle. Based on your feedback, we will work until we have created the ideal plan for your home. Once plans and specifications are finalized and a budget has been approved, the contract can be executed.


Next, we move onto personalizing and beautifying your space. During this exciting phase, we’ll guide you in your journey of selections including: flooring, light fixtures, kitchen finish details, and interior and exterior colors. As we develop a greater understanding of your personal style, we can help you define the style of your home. We will point you in the right direction during your selections, coach you through any questions or concerns, and help you make well-informed decisions. This phase takes what could have otherwise seemed like a daunting chore and turns it into a fun and appealing process. Lady Street Builders has cultivated a construction process that produces the highest quality homes both on-time and on-budget. We are proud of the relationships we share with local contractors and suppliers. They share our passion for uncompromised craftsmanship. We look forward to sharing this process with you as we conduct on-site meetings including pre-construction, pre-drywall, hardware, landscaping and others, as needed.


If you own a homesite already, you have a PLACE for your new home. Lady Street Builders is more than happy to help you bring your vision of home to life in the place where you’ve always wanted to live. Our Build On Your Lot Program includes a comprehensive approach that engages all facets of the construction process from our client’s hopes and dreams.
