Loudermilk Homes

Realizing
the Future
Loudermilk Homes takes custom homebuilding to the next level by integrating
smart home technology. BY ERIC SLACK

Atlanta-based Loudermilk Homes has taken a unique path

Loudermilk Homes employs a nine-step design process to ensure client satisfaction.

" Integrity and transparency are very
important for us across the board. "

SHERWIN LOUDERMILK PRESIDENT
AND OWNER

to creating a custom homebuilding success story. Its president and
owner, Sherwin Loudermilk, didn't come into the business with
an extensive construction background. Instead, he started in the
world of computer science.
"I started out as an entrepreneur building PCs when I was 14
years old, got into building websites, which led to the dotcom industry working at IBM," Loudermilk says. "In my last role at IBM, I
worked with telecommunication companies developing back-end
infrastructure processes and created a Home of the Future in an
IBM lab over 15 years ago. Eventually, I realized I wanted to get
back to my entrepreneurial roots and saw an opportunity in the
building industry."
Soon after entering the construction world, Loudermilk decided to specialize in the custom home sector. His wife comes from
the residential real estate business, bringing in a keen awareness
of design and coupling that with Loudermilk's understanding of
the smart home phenomenon. Since 2009, Loudermilk Homes has
focused on creating highly differentiated homes that can serve its
clients rather than concentrating on volume.
"We transitioned into the larger luxury home business so we
wouldn't compete with production builders, increasing the price,
complexity and size of the homes," Loudermilk says. "Our approach is to focus on exactly what the clients want."

Loudermilk Homes takes a flexible and thorough approach to creating its clients' dream homes. It works closely with the clients on
design, going through nine different stages of a process that can
recommend radical changes to make sure clients are fully satisfied.
It also has an internal software program called Loudermilk Connect that allows the company to walk through the building process
with clients.
"They get an app on their devices they can use to see everything
we see," Loudermilk says. "Our controllers, procurement managers, designers and superintendents all input information into Loudermilk Connect so the client can see everything in real time, such
as schedules, any delays, work in progress, inspection status, daily
