Residences designed to make the everyday extraordinary.


Johnson Development Company is a custom home building firm headed by brothers Terry and Roger Johnson. As the sons of a builder (who during his 40-year career, developed more that 2,000 homes in metro St. Louis), the Johnsons learned the business from the ground up, with summers devoted to learning basic construction skills and procedures.

The company was founded in 1970. As the years passed, the business grew. Large, increasingly elaborate homes became the norm as families responded to the brothers' architectural creativity and ability to produce homes of perceptibly higher quality.

Today, homes built by Johnson Development are found throughout the finest neighborhoods of metro St. Louis. In addition to building on a lot already owned by a customer, the Johnsons maintain a portfolio of custom home sites in some of the area's most exclusive locales.



Its' All in the Details





We have the best crews

Johnson Development retains its own private finish carpentry crews - a rarity in this era of outsourcing. While doing so requires greater planning and effort, the result is precision-crafted millwork that communicates total quality throughout the living environment.

Collaborative Process

One idea at a time

Some clients come to Johnson Development with plans in hand. Most do not. They bring snapshots, magazine clippings and, invariably, a list of desired outcomes. An orderly collaborative process - one that has been perfected over decades of use. Systematically, a custom home takes shape, one idea at a time.


Design Flexibility

We make it happen

Custom homes are all different. No two families have identical needs, preferences, or construction sites. No matter what kind of home you want, from strictly traditional to ultra-modern, you need to be able to depend on your builder to help turn your dreams into reality.
