Professional Architectural Design by Mt. Tabor
If You Can Dream it, Mt. Tabor will Build it Right!
Mt. Tabor Builders offers a complete architectural design service.
Project design is the first major step in the building process, whether it’s new construction or complete renovation. This step ultimately leads to the success of every project. The Mt. Tabor designer will take all of the client’s ideas, pictures, notes, and drawings and transform them into the architectural design plans that become the perfect custom-built house, addition, outdoor living space, or whatever can be dreamed up.
If fact, this meeting is much better and productive if the client first visits websites — Pinterest, Houzz and Google Images – to get ideas that narrow the focus of the project. And, since “a picture is worth a thousand words,” it brings more clarity to the discussion, which allows the actual building process to start more quickly.
Ideas into Reality
Once the ideas are converted to drawings, the permitting process can begin. After that the permitting process is complete, the home is built within a few months. And, depending on the size and complexity of the building project, the keys are soon handed over. We know this is over-simplifying all that goes into a building project. However, the Mt. Tabor professionals work hard to make it as simple as possible.

Let’s Design and Build Your Dream Home Together
Lead designer Royce Eby and Willie Eby (Mt. Tabor founder and president) look forward to meeting and brainstorming with clients to start designing a custom dream into a custom dream home.
The professional designers and builders at Mt Tabor have designed many variations of traditional American homes, log houses, and timber frame homes which give the rugged feel found in log homes, but with the ability to meet today’s more-stringent energy codes.

Our Clients Say...
Beth B. of Great Cacapon, WV
Mt. Tabor was our fifth builder that we sat down with to plan our dream retirement home. The other four builders we walked away from did not provide the comprehensive home builder service with the confidence of what we wanted and needed. When obtaining quotes from Well Drilling and Water treatment companies, they suggested Mt. Tabor Builders.
Upon the initial meeting with Willie Eby and Royce Eby, we knew we finally found a builder that could visualize our dream home as we wanted built and not the cookie cutter home that was comfortable and quick to build for the builder. Once they saw the location, I think Willie was just as excited to build the home as we were to live there. This was not just another house to build, they wanted to build our home. This emotional “buy in” was very important to us. Willie and his team sincerely wanted to provide us with a home that could be enjoyed by our entire family for years to come. I could see the expressions on their faces when talking about having large family dinners and Holiday gatherings appealed to them. They were building a family home for lasting memories.
Nice guys are nice guys, but when you are trusting someone with your life savings, you check them out first. Couldn’t find anything derogatory or negative. Believe me, I looked. We also spoke with other service providers, and they spoke highly and respectfully of Mt. Tabor Builders and their business practices.
Then it came down to the most important reasons we chose Mt. Tabor Builders, trust and accountability. Once we decided on the plans within a very short time we sat down with Willie and Royce. Every line item of the contract was reviewed, discussed, clarified and agreed upon. This was the first builder that provided this level of transparency. Also, what was discussed were the sub-contractors to be used and Willie’s reassurance the work would be completed to his level of standards. Even though we were not in Maryland, he built the home to Maryland code and specs (which were not required at the location site).
At this point we were introduced to Shawn, the foreman on the project. Shawn was assigned to us, not just the project to build the home. He was the only foreman (go to guy) from day one until completion. Shawn is approachable, open and easy to discuss concerns. We started building the same time the cost and shortages hit due to COVID. Not an easy time for builders or home owners. Shawn’s calm, patient approach to just about any situation was reassuring and calming.
The framing crew worked relentlessly and were meticulous to build a home withstanding of the challenging natural elements. Alex and Cameron (Willie’s sons) along with Gary were respectful, polite and are conscientious craftsman of their trade. They felt more like our grandsons then framers.
The stone mason, Everett Eby has provided us a stone fireplace so beautiful everyone has their picture taken by it. It is one of the main focal points of the home. The outside stone veneer has strangers stopping by to comment on the beauty. Everett is an artesian of stone placement.
The other trades; Trim Carpenters (Neal and Gary), Electrical (Anytime Electric, Chad), plumbing (Wes), HVAC, ceramic tile, and wood flooring, and excavators (Jarryd Keplinger) worked with the same level of workmanship and dedication to the project.
Building and working with a company for over nine months to build your home can be stressful, financially challenging especially during challenging times of COVID. Sometimes the end result is not positive. Our end result was a beautiful home, and the forever friendship of the Mt. Tabor family.
If you are looking for a home builder, or home improvement provider that can deliver superb craftmanship, accompanied by integrity, honesty and high standard of work ethics then don’t waste your time on the other four builders, call Mt. Tabor and talk to Willie Eby. They do it right.
