About Layne Builders


Gary Layne, the owner of Layne Builders, has been building industrial commercial and residential facilities for 30 years and is fully licensed and insured to build in the state of Tennessee. We serve Sevierville, Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg and the Greater Smoky Mountain area.

His background has been in Civil Engineering and project management and he has been a Project Manager for over 75 projects ranging from $10 million dollars to $1 million dollars. The professionalism he has used to make these projects a success is now being applied to his residential construction.

He has found a single common ground for both commercial and residential construction that insures the project will be a success and that is good planning. Layne Builders will take whatever time necessary to ensure that you fully understand the process and the upcoming events, in getting you a new home built on time and in your budget.

Specific points we want you to know:

  • We will work with you to make sure you get the best financing available.
  • We will provide you with 3D detailed renderings and drawings.
  • You will receive a detailed, comprehensive budget.
  • You will be provided with a time line so you can follow your project.
  • We exceed the 2006 Code Requirements for new construction.


Planning and organization is imperative when choosing to build your dream custom home; Layne Builders understands. We provide you with detailed 3D drawings and MS Excel budget projections before construction even starts. We’ll continue to provide you with periodic updates throughout the construction process. This way, you will always be able to monitor the progress and expenses of the project from your current residence or business. No surprises. That’s the way Layne Builders believes in doing in business.

Construction Process

We insist at least nine separate inspections be performed by the State of Tennessee Building Code inspectors and independent certified IRC* and IBC* inspectors. Upon completion of the construction of your home, you will receive a written report compiling the records of those inspections.

All custom homes constructed by Layne Builders are accompanied with a written one year warranty on the structural components. Quality assurance and accountability: more reasons to choose Layne Builders.
