David Luecke is President of Capitol Homes. You could say home building is in David’s blood. His father was an architect and both his grandfathers were builders/developers. After working for some big national companies (Ryland Homes, Washington Homes, Drees Homes) he was ready to start his own company. His grandfather always said, “Learn from the best, then go do your own thing.” David started the company in 1999 with the belief that quality craftsmanship and stellar customer service (before, during and after the sale) would set him apart from all the other home builders in Nashville. When David isn’t building homes, you can find him playing basketball, collecting sports memorabilia or dreaming of sailing.

Capitol Homes was able to give us the look we wanted without exceeding our budget. Our friends who have build custom homes told us to expect to go over budget by 10 to 20 percent … I say that should have chosen David Luecke and Capitol Homes. Capitol completed our new home under budget, and gave us more than we expected.Todd Kornblit
