Living Home Construction’s Commitment to a Central Purpose
by Jennifer Walton
A home is personal, and whoever orchestrates and collaborates in its building process has the potential to determine a positive experience for the homeowner.
From consultation to completion, Living Home Construction continues to create personal and successful project experiences for its clients with their collaborative approach to what could be described as one of life’s most rewarding experiences—loving your home. Naturally, collaboration is about people working together and committing to a shared vision, but what makes clients and trade partners choose Living Home Construction?
“Our strength is our team. We’ve been assembling a team over the last decade. As a result, we are versatile in doing new construction and high-quality renovation projects. But beyond that, our efficiency and adaptability define our reputation among our trade partners, vendors, and subcontractors,” states Chris Towson, founder and owner of Living Home Construction in Salt Lake City, Utah. He adds, “… and because our project planning method is anchored in collaboration, communication, and consistency, we’re able to focus on creativity and productivity, and our collaborators, which include architects and interior and landscape designers, among others, appreciate those benefits.”
Since 2007, Living Home Construction has excelled in new home construction, large and small renovation in addition to pre-construction consulting and project management while simultaneously building a reservoir of loyalty and talent. The company’s breadth of knowledge eclipses more than a century of experience in the construction industry, evidenced by their long-term business, referrals, and repeat clients. In addition, an impressive portfolio of projects demonstrates LHC’s expertise in constructing and transforming houses into homes. From mountain rustic to historic craftsman to contemporary modern, their precise and ever-evolving building practices are informed and executed with collaboration in mind.

Cultivating respect and cooperation increases integration and innovation. It also establishes trust. That trust is essential when variations arise from a myriad of project-related questions. “Our attention to detail is not only in construction but also in the scheduling of projects. We thrive on close communications with our clients,” explains Towson. That communication literally translates to projects that stay on budget and on time with minor changes. LHC’s dedication to client support and satisfaction is well-known in Salt Lake City, Park City, and their neighboring communities, but their projects are also supported by “an online client portal so our clients can see their project’s progress with corresponding images and schedules. It’s incredibly valuable for our out-of-state clients,” Towson says.
But getting back to team spirit. LHC’s organizational workflow guarantees motivated teams, happy owners, and successful stakeholders who embrace well-managed, high-functioning tools and processes that align around tasks, priorities, and project goals. This is particularly advantageous because it improves quality and timely project completion. And when a homeowner is on the receiving end of that performance, they are likely to praise the process.
“Chris Towson and Living Home Construction are top-rate professionals. Their attention to detail and ability to comfortably guide customers through the entire design/construction process is unsurpassed in the area. They have been entrusted with some of the most beautiful, unique, and exclusive projects on the Wasatch Front and Back with proven people and processes. But your project doesn’t have to be a mountaintop show-stopper for them to care. Even conventional remodels are handled with this same attention. They love what they do, and it shows in their work. The bottom line is that they are just good people, and I’d recommend including them in your (any) remodel or new construction plans,” says Richard Higginson, a long-term trade partner of the company.

Scott Beck, the owner of Distinct Lighting and Electrical, who works closely with the company, echoes that sentiment, saying, “Living Home has been one of the most organized construction companies that we’ve worked with. The type of projects that we do are not cut and dry; there are always plan changes and schedule shifts. However, their communication stream always flows, which is nice, and information is given to us as fast as possible.”
Skillful and engaging communication allows clients and teams to communicate freely, which inspires them to participate more readily with resources and solutions. Healthy group dynamics also encourage those involved to contribute and exceed expectations. And what LHC has defined in its 14-year history is a friendly and inclusive environment that actively involves its staff, often referred to as a family. As Phil Jackson once said, “The strength of the team is each individual member. The strength of each member is the team.”
