The process of building a house involves nails, hammers, wood, saws and a variety of other materials, but that house isn’t a home until its owners see it. Chris Taylor, the owner of CM Taylor Contracting, says he will never tire from the excitement of watching people react during the first viewing of their new home’s frame.

In 2009, following the housing recession, Taylor took a leap of faith and opened his company, figuring the market could only go up from there. Today, he offers a full range of services, including designing and building custom homes, remodels, additions and commercial build outs. Taylor’s passion for homes began at a young age, when he assisted his stepfather, a builder, with various tasks on job sites.

After high school, he briefly moved away from the Emerald Coast, but he made his way back because he wanted to raise his family here and be a part of building this community.

With a lifetime of experience, Taylor knows how important each decision in the building process is, therefore he strives to make it as stress-free and enjoyable as possible. With custom homes being his specialty, the opportunities to engage with clients during the building process fuels his drive.

“I love to work closely with clients and get in their heads to bring their visions to life,” said Taylor. “We pay attention to every little detail because we care that your home is what you envisioned.”

Many of his client’s visions currently include open floor plans, craftsman style, light colors, dark wood features, stained wood accents and outdoor living spaces. While trends come and go, each home has a certain something special that sets them apart — not only to the owner but also to the contractors as well.

“Every day is unpredictable, exciting and rewarding,” said Taylor. “I visit job sites, make influential decisions and meet many great people. Because of that, the projects become personal, and I build each home as if it were my own.”
