Legacy Homes has been building custom homes in the Richmond area since the company was started by Travis Johnson in 1999. Travis grew up around the home building business and worked as a superintendent for several custom builders before starting his own company. He brings over 20 years of experience to the table and is passionate about delivering the level of quality, service, and communication that every client should expect when building a new home. 


In addition to the numerous custom homes we have built on privately owned land in Hanover, Henrico, Goochland, and the City of Richmond, Legacy Homes has also built in the following neighborhoods:

  • Andover Hills in Henrico                               

  • Atlee Lake Estates in Hanover

  • Swann's Inn Estates, Massies's Bend, The Fords, Proffitts Knoll, Mill Forest, and Clifton -      all in Goochland.

Our company is family operated out of Rockville, Virginia.



"Building a custom home requires so many decisions and we felt choosing the right builder was the most important decision we would make.  We met with several builders, but after our first meeting with Travis Johnson and Lorrie Binns of Legacy Homes, we knew we found our builder.  Open, honest, and knowledgeable is how we would describe Travis.  As the process went forward, Legacy Homes helped us through the steps, presenting options, updating us on activities, and ensured our satisfaction from beginning to end.  Our home is beautiful and we could not be happier.  It was such a pleasure to work with professionals that take great pride in their work and deliver a quality product.  If you are looking for an excellent custom home that exceeds your expectations and a headache free building process, Legacy Homes is the right place to start."

"We were truly blessed to have had Legacy Homes build our dream home. From the second I saw this home on the website I fell in love. I was so surprised when my 10 pm e-mail request for information was answered within minutes, and six months later my dream house was a reality. The entire building process with Travis Johnson seemed too good to be true - from start to finish he far surpassed all of my expectations. Finding a builder who takes such pride in his work and truly cares about each individual customer is a rare find. He was so accommodating to all of the unique personal touches we wanted to add to our home, and he takes great care of his customers through every phase of the building process. We are now the proud owners of  a beautiful farmhouse that our family will be able to enjoy for generations to come.  I absolutely recommend Legacy Homes and couldn’t imagine going through this experience with anyone else!

"I highly recommend Legacy Homes if anyone is interested in building a customized, quality home.  We were interested in building our dream home and had talked to a couple of other builders, before we were referred to Legacy Homes by a friend who had a home built by them.   We were very impressed with the owner Travis Johnson when we met with him, and he helped us find the perfect floor plan.  The building process went well, and Travis was very accommodating to all my special requests, even down to the paw print doorbell!   We’ve been in our house for 8 years now and we couldn’t be happier with our forever home."  C.
