dadourstorysmaller Ernest Williams, founder of Ernest Homes, was a humble man who  loved his God, his family, his friends, his work, and of course, his  Harley. He was a loving father and a loyal friend. As a third generation  brickmason who preferred blue jeans over a business suit, he was more  comfortable spending time on home sites in the Savannah sun than  behind a desk in the office.

 He was an extraordinary craftsman and visionary new home builder. In  1986, Ernest invited his wife Beth to partner with him in the  homebuilding business. He worked quietly and diligently behind the  scenes – pouring foundations, laying brick, framing houses and building  beautiful new Ernest homes, as Beth managed the finances, perations, sales and marketing departments. They became known as  the region’s perfect home building team!

 Sadly, Ernest passed away in early 2007, but his legacy lives on. Beth  along with their daughters, Jessica Miles and Stephanie Carter,  continue building homes with Ernest’s passion for excellence, pride in workmanship, and commitment to customer service, which continue  to serve as the foundation for the company’s growing success.Dadourstory2
