About Craig Construction
Craig Emping is a General Contractor with over 35 years experience in home building and light commercial construction. Through his meticulous attention to detail, problem-solving skills, and passion, he helps his clients bring their ideas for their dream home to life.
He founded Craig Construction LLC in 1994 with one goal in mind: to build the best custom homes and do the best remodeling work of any contractor in the Shenandoah Valley.


Craig’s Design & Building Philosophy

Craig knows the importance of amazing design and helps his clients get their designs right before the first nail is hammered.

Great design work leads to accurate plans which save time and reduce cost overruns.

Craig’s philosophy is, “better plans make for better work.”

Better plans start with a face-to-face meeting. Craig works with several architects in the area and sitting down with an architect is the best way to start the design process. Better plans lead to better work and more satisfied clients.

And to Craig, that’s what it’s all about: your complete satisfaction with your dream home.
