Our Work  / Design, Construction & Development

Traverse Homes is a design/construction firm that has been building in the Grand Traverse region for over 30 years. The owner Henry Ramsby is an accomplished carpenter in his own right and has been involved in the construction business since 18 years old. He learned construction from the ground up, having been taught the finesse of how buildings go together by old-world artisans.

By age 22, Henry found he had an aptitude for construction and, at 26, started his own business with the idea he could design and build more efficient and energy conscious homes.

During Henry's career, he continued his schooling, studying architectural blueprinting, energy conservation, engineering, and interior layout, perfecting his unique approach to building design and construction.

Today, Traverse Homes, a certified Green Builder, is widely recognized and respected in Grand Traverse, Leelanau, and Benzie areas.

We are reputable builders, approaching any project's construction in an honest, forthright, and diligent manner. Traverse Homes strives to make your building project fun and rewarding experience, staying within your budget, completing your projects in a timely and professional manner, and generally exceeding your expectations. Our reputation is second to none, perpetuated by continual referrals and testimonials.
