About Gustin Construction

Tackling a major home project can be overwhelming. You need a professional you can lean on to guide you through the process from start to finish — without missing any steps along the way.

Gustin Construction Owner Gus McKinley has earned a solid reputation as a builder of quality custom homes in Northern Kentucky and Greater Cincinnati. He’s known for his high-quality work and an attention to detail — whether that means living up to a customer’s vision of their dream home or forming an innovative design that stands out from the crowd. He has developed a strong working relationship with his subcontractors, who know he expects nothing less than perfection.

As a provider of luxury homes, Gus’s strong business foundation means he is proud to put his name on each and every project and will always stand by his work.

Gustin Gives Back

It's More Than Building Your Home, It's About Building Our Community.

Gustin Gives Back is a giving campaign with the goal of providing our clients the opportunity to contribute to local causes. A percentage of the profit from the construction of your home will be donated to one of ten hand-selected charities of your choice. These organizations range from supporting women and children in dire situations to standing up for our Wounded Warriors—all holding special meaning for the Gustin Construction family. This is a great way to help support those who have made it their mission to be there when others are in need.

What We Do

New Homes – Start to Finish

You’ve always pictured it—the square footage, lots of windows, granite countertops and maybe even a fireplace. And now it’s about to become reality! No wonder you’re feeling overwhelmed.

At Gustin Construction, we know you’re making some really big decisions — and we want you to enjoy the process. As our customer, we will see you through the exciting initial design stage of your new home all the way to the thrilling final days of construction.

Our team of architects, interior designers, construction supervisors and suppliers will treat your dream as our own, making sure your experience is one you will never forget. We want your new building project to be an enjoyable one — because we know it’s much more than lumber and bricks…it’s your dream home.


Remodels, Renovations and Additions

We say home is where the heart is—but maybe you aren’t in love with your outdated bathroom tile or dark basement. Maybe it’s finally time to add on that den or extra bedroom to give you that extra space you’ve needed.

Whether it’s a bathroom, kitchen, finished basement or an addition to your existing home, Gustin Construction can help. The same quality and craftsmanship that goes into our new homes is employed in remodels, renovations and additions—and this attention to detail adds value and gives you peace of mind in your investment.

We will guide you through the process from design to completion and take all measures to ensure that your home improvement project is a positive experience—not an inconvenience.

If you are looking to remodel your home to accommodate physical needs, please see our CAPS (Certified Aging in Place Specialist) section for more details.


On time and within budget

Gustin Construction brings the same innovation and craftsmanship for which we've become known in our residential building to our commercial projects. If you simply need an update or renovation to an existing space or need someone who can plan and develop a complex, one-of-a-kind retail experience for your customers, we can help. Gustin brings together a trusted team of commercial designers and contractors who have been there and done it, delivering on time, on budget and on par with LEED certifications and safety regulations.

In an ever-evolving, fast-paced economical environment, time equals money. Whether you need us to work with your architect or ours to achieve your ideal solution, our focus from start to finish is to deliver the highest quality product with minimal downtime for your business's staff and production. Knowing we can easily adjust to tight deadlines while maintaining productivity and controlling costs along the way, you can concentrate on what is important to you: running your business.

If your company is planning a commercial construction or land development project in Greater Cincinnati or Northern Kentucky, please contact us.
