About us

The most important element of any business transaction, especially in what will most likely be the single greatest transaction in one’s life, is trust. Although we won’t build a house for every person we meet, we want to instill trust through every interaction we have. We want business to be done the old fashion way…to do what we say we are going to do, and to take great pride in our work. We strive to create trust and to deliver the house of our client’s dreams every time.

CS Thomas Construction is a custom home builder with a relentless dedication to customer satisfaction. Located in Bluffton, SC, CS Thomas builds exclusively in Palmetto Bluff.

Having been born and raised across the river in Savannah, GA, the Thomas brothers possess a wealth of local knowledge of the Lowcountry lifestyle and the beautiful architecture that draws people to the area. Each member of the CS Thomas team has extensive experience in the construction industry, many with more than 25 years of experience. By combining this experience and talent to form a cohesive team, we have become recognized as one of the area’s best builders.

Values We Live By

Work Hard

Anything worth having is achieved through hard work. We put everything we have into our clients' homes, because of the value we place on the sanctuary of our own homes.

Pursue Excellence

An attempt to achieve anything less than our standard of excellence is an attempt at failure. We strive to be good spouses, parents, friends, citizens and professionals.


The solidity of our upbringing is reflected in our company name. We are the Thomas brothers. Our parents sacrificed, worked hard and raised six children. We inject the lessons we‘ve learned from them into our business every day. We don’t take the name lightly because it isn’t just a name.


Work is important, but it’s not everything to us. We embrace the Lowcountry lifestyle and when we’re not on a job site or in the office we are with our spouses, kids, friends, and dogs. We’re fishing, hunting, and reading bedtime stories.

  • Jan and Earl Grubbs, Palmetto Bluff
    "Personalized Service… Attention to Detail… High Ethical Standards… all are phrases we use to describe the CS Thomas residential construction experience. The qualities that set them apart from other builders became evident during our initial pre-construction interview/meeting. They walked us through every step of the journey; creating our dream and seeing it through to fruition. They offer an unsurpassed level of personalized service combined with an honest and integrity filled approach to construction. The end result …a home that surpasses our expectations. Thank you Thomas brothers!"
