Psalm 127

Lee continuously seeks to build a business based on the conviction of what he knows to be true. His mission statement is “Building on Truth.” Why? He believes Jesus Christ is the Ultimate Truth. He believes that if the LORD is not the focus of his business, then the homes he builds will be built in vain.


Blythe Building Company constructs their homes with quality products and craftsmanship and can accommodate any/every design or style to suit their clients' needs. Lee builds knowing that service does not end when the construction process is over. Warranty and “punch” items are handled promptly with all of his homes. Blythe Building Company strives to continue to develop and grow organically by word of mouth; therefore, their reputation is dependent on the happiness of their customers.
