Ross Tackett Custom Homes

Being a single woman and undertaking the project of a new house by myself, I highly recommend Ross Tackett Custom Homes. From the ground breaking to the dedication of finishing every detail, the teamwork of Ross and his wife Tracey took much of the stress away from me. Tracey researched such things as appliances and plumbing. This saved me time and money! They were very personable and a pleasure to do business with and the outcome is amazing! Thank you.


We would like to share our experience and impression of Ross Tackett Custom Homes with everyone that is contemplating building a home on Marco Island. We have had four homes built over the years and the home that Ross built for us on Marco Island was far superior to all of them. Ross builds a quality home and personally supervises the building process. You will not find a man with more integrity, honesty and follow through than Ross. He has the knowledge and a thorough grasp of all that is required to build a home in Florida. Ross's wife Tracey is extremely helpful with decorating ideas and doing the research needed to answer your questions and concerns. Ross and Tracey made the building process pleasant and stress free. We recommend them highly. Thank you Ross and Tracey.

As you know, my spouse and I have worked with many different builders over the last 30 years to build our homes; however, no other builder has made the experience of building a house as pleasant and easy as you did. You and Tracie approached each decision with the care and dedication as if you were making the decision for your own home. As “absentee” clients that could only make the trip to Marco Island every six weeks or so during the building process, we had complete confidence that you were doing everything possible to make sure our house would be built on schedule and built to exceed our expectations. Two things standout about working with Tackett Construction and your subcontractors:
1. Your team’s commitment to do what is right. Every construction project will have its challenges, and our house was no exception. When these challenges arose, you crispy articulated what the problems were, how you would recommend they be addressed, and what if any impact the solution would have to the schedule and cost. And candidly, you amazed me by finding a way to solve every issue in a way that was satisfactory and kept us within our original budget. In fifteen houses that we’ve built with builders, this is only the third time we came in at budget, and the first time that coming in at budget did not require sacrifices to the finished product!
2. You did not treat us as clients, but instead, treated us as friends. You maintained the professional attitude necessary to build us the house we wanted, but we knew we had developed a relationship that was more than just a builder building us a house. It reflects the wonderful old-fashioned value that your word and your handshake are all we really needed. Needless to say, I would be happy to talk to any future prospective clients to share with them our wonderful experience building our dream home with Tackett Construction.


Ross Tackett was our General Contractor(GC) and managed the end-to-end construction of our home. After interviewing several builders we selected Ross Tackett as our GC. He brought his deep experience and knowledge to the table to oversee a very substantial home construction project. He managed the subcontractors very effectively, kept the project moving forward on a timely basis, coordinated the permit and inspection process with The City, and ensured that we were satisfied with the results every step of the way. We would definitely select Ross again to handle any future major home construction project on Marco Island.
