“I am a hands on builder.”


Skilled craftsmen, well-chosen materials and meticulous construction practices create the high level of quality craftsmanship by T. L. Thompson Construction. Budget and size vary greatly in the homes we build — but our attention to detail never waivers.  Construction costs are, of course, a primary concern for those interested in building a custom house.  In order to calculate an average cost-per-square-foot, the approximate size of the residence, as well as the grade of materials and finish levels must be determined.  Once that figure is calculated, the greatest challenge for owners is to resist increasing the budget with further upgrades or expansions.  If you have plans to build a home in the Towns or Union County area, contact us for a review of your project.


Terry began his building career in 1980 with his father’s construction company, and his interest in every aspect of the building process is reflected in long term memberships in the Greater Atlanta Home Builder Association, the Home Builders Association of Georgia and the National Association of Home Builders.  He is a past president of the Union County – Towns County Home Builders Association and served two years as a Construction Board Member with Habitat for Humanity of Union & Towns County.

Covering all of northeast Georgia including Fannin, Towns, Union, Gilmer, White, Habersham, Rabun, and Lumpkin Counties



“Homebuilding isn’t new to us,” Betty continues, “but working with Terry was an entirely new take on the process. He is that rare builder who listens to you and works to make the house exactly what you have in mind. We really appreciated that extra attention to detail.”

“Terry really heard us when we explained what we wanted in our lake house. His creative attitude makes ideas possible.”
