Your Hometown Builders


The Difference is in the Details

As North Augusta natives, we want to see our communities grow by building homes that will last not only your lifetime, but your children’s, too. Our job as homebuilders is to provide you with a custom home that feels like your own with the quality and convenience that North Augusta’s residents deserve. We are your neighbors! See how Forrest McKie & Company Homebuilders stand out from the competition in quality and service:

Natural Amenities

We truly value a natural, relaxing environment that feels like home. That’s why our developments are rich in trees, trails and wildlife. “Reserved nature space,” many trees, custom porches and large lots create an environment focused on outdoor entertaining and privacy. We don’t believe in mass-grading and know you’ll see the difference when you drive into one of our communities.

We pride ourselves in incorporating nature’s elements into our homes that we build with the utmost attention to cost and energy efficiency now and in the future.


How Forrest McKie’s plumbing and installation are above the competition:

  • Forrest McKie Homes use only Delta valves compared to off-brand.
  • An upgraded finish is standard on all fixtures. Homeowners get the choice of oil rubbed bronze or brushed nickel.
  • “Zurn Pex Tubing” is used for all freshwater lines in Forrest McKie homes and is backed by a 25 year warranty. The competition may use an off-brand of pex pipe that does not carry a comparable warranty.
  • Forrest McKie himself can be found on the job site every day and is involved in every decision of the home building process.

Quality & Quantity

Forrest McKie homes are not only built with quality materials but the most substantial amount of materials so that our homes last generations. Most competitors build homes that are 2 foot on center with a standard amount of lumber. McKie homes are built 16 inches on center with 50% more lumber.
This is just one of the many things that Forrest McKie and his team consider in the building of each home to make the best quality product. As a hometown builder, we want to ensure that every community built in North Augusta is sustainable and will withstand the test of time.


Client Testmonials

I Can’t Recommend Joann Enough

“Joann helped my wife and I buy our first home in August. I can’t recommend Joann enough – she treated us like family the entire time and worked with our admittedly picky must-haves and wants. Joann is very knowledgeable of the local area, a trait you must have in Augusta and N. Augusta as the areas can be hit and miss from block to block. We never felt like we were being taken advantage of, and on more than one occasion Joann put what was best for us above her professional and business interests. Our home search was quick and the house we built came in right in our price range, Joann gets our emphatic recommendation.”

– Devon Thompson

JoAnn McKie is the best!

“JoAnn McKie is the best!! If you are going to buy a home in the Augusta / Evans / CSRA Area, you need to check out Forrest McKie and Company’s developments in North Augusta. Quality is far superior to any builder in their price point in the area. They do not scrimp on quality, are a joy to work with and are on top of any and all details. Thier Woodstone development is the best bargain in the CSRA. Great community, great neighbors and JoAnn is a fantastic buyers agent. I have bought and or built 4 homes – The McKie’s delivered our favorite home.”
