A Legacy Like No Other

In 1948 after returning home from WWII, Howard Chatham built his first house for his young family. Thousands of homes and hundreds of neighborhoods later, the basic principles of integrity and hard work still live on. After 65 years, Chathambilt is now in it's third generation and the Chatham name has become synonymous with quality. As a result no homes in Atlanta are more sought after than a Chathambilt Home.
