Horse Country Dream Home


One of our most memorable projects over the years is this stunning French country-style home in the heart of horse country. This home, which won an award for the New Builder’s House of the Year, was featured in an article on the design website

“An allèe of leaf-filled trees shades the drive over gently rolling landscape. Fenced pasture filled with clover and several happily-fed thoroughbreds outline the lay of the land. A turreted and chimney-dotted roofline looms over the horizon, followed by a sprawling French-styled chateau that if you didn’t blink twice, would be the icing on the cake after a transatlantic voyage,” the article begins.

This project took a year of planning, and more than a year and a half  to complete construction, but it was worth it. Located on 16 acres of pristine farmland near the Kentucky Horse Park, it has many intricate features, including a curving staircase in the turret, arched doorways, cedar ceiling beams and custom, hand laid brick floors in the kitchen.

Padgett was pleased to help the Weiss family’s dream home become a reality. Read more about this project on

How Padgett Paved Its Way to Success


Padgett Construction knows the complex and often time-sensitive procedure of building a client’s custom home is almost as important as the end result.

“The process is critically important,” Padgett Construction Founder Tom Padgett told Building/Architect Magazine. “The client has to have confidence in us. They must think that the home was completed in a logical and orderly fashion once it comes to fruition. We are always finding ways to reinvent ourselves.”

Here are a few key components mentioned in the article that set Padgett apart from the competition:

–Choosing quality subcontractors and suppliers who are both seasoned and educated.

–Being vigilant, realistic and careful with clients about what can be accomplished.

–Holding weekly staff meetings to critique projects and coordinate jobs, and applying checks and balance procedures in areas of budget, schedule and quality control.

–Balancing creativity and communication to illustrate a personal dedication to customer satisfaction.

–Assembling resources to make the building and owning of a custom home worth the investment of a client’s time and money.
