Our Mission

We are passionate about custom homes, innovative design and traditional values. We are committed to high-level workmanship, customer service and results that exceed our clients’ expectations.

Our Founder

Rhode Island Builder Steve Lawrence graduated from Roger Williams University (RWU) in Bristol, Rhode Island (RI) with a Bachelor of Science degree in Marine Biology. Upon graduation from Roger Williams University, Steve left the Ocean State to work for the National Marine Fishery Service to work on an Alaskan sea vessel. Steve ultimately met his wife and shortly thereafter they undertook a new adventure which took him to the majestic Colorado Rocky Mountains.


Since Steve was unable to pursue his passion of marine biology in the “land locked” state of Colorado, he decided to “get creative” and taught himself to build furniture using dead standing Aspen trees. This experiment in furniture building sparked his passion for ‘green building initiatives‘, and before he knew it he had a very successful “High Country Furniture Design.” But Steve’s passion for bigger and better was ignited, and his natural curiosity to understand how thing’s are constructed, led him to learn and to create beautiful custom designed and custom built mountain homes…starting with his own. Before he knew it, Lawrence Builders, Inc. was founded and the perfect solution was found blending Steve’s passion for the outdoors while leveraging his creative talents and his love of the environment.

Our History

After eight years in Colorado, Steve and his wife returned ‘home’ to Rhode Island continuing his love of construction in the Ocean State. Instead of building and framing his custom home building ‘artwork’ against the canvas of the majestic Colorado Rockies, Steve  arrived ‘full circle’ and his new palette today is not only the picturesque New England mountains,  but also the maritime beauty and history of the rugged New England sea coast.


Today, Steve’s has had the privilege of building and renovating homes in such Rhode Island towns, cities, and seacoast towns as Block Island, Narragansett, Westerly, North Kingstown, Warwick, East Greenwich, Jamestown, Newport, Westerly, Charlestown, Wakefield, Middletown, North Kingston, Saunderstown, Hope Valley, Richmond, Coventry, Cranston, Johnston, Exeter, and Wickford.


 Steve is one of the few Rhode Island builders who is a Certified Green Professional, creating beautiful, sustainable, eco-friendly green homes, Steve is doing what he loves and preserving what matters most…the environment while creating a loyal and highly satisfied clientele.


If you are looking for a Rhode Island (RI) builder who has a proven track record of client success while at the same time creating natural, striking and timeless works of art that preserve and protect the environment, then call Steve today to experience the Lawrence Builders difference where passion and beauty are blended to meet your custom building needs.
