About Us

Owners - Doug and Marv

Our Story

“Nothing shines as brilliantly as work created with pride and passion.” 

Providence Custom Homes was birthed over 17 years ago as a result of a dream shared by two individuals, Doug Garman and Marvin Martin.  Whenever you take a chance on something you also take a risk.  In this case it was a risk they were both willing to take together.  Today this partnership continues to survive in the competitive and cut-throat building industry of Lancaster County. 

From day one, Doug and Marvin decided that their passion for building homes was going to extend beyond the end result.  “Building a home is one of the largest investments a person will make in life” shares Doug.  “When we partner with clients we desire to see them as more than just a number, building them another cookie-cutter home.” 

With over 40 years of combined building experience Doug and Marvin know how to make that dream of owning a unique home a reality.  Providence Custom Homes continues to thrive because they have chosen to remain a small business providing unsurpassed personal service that the larger production builders cannot.

If you are considering a building project big or small, Providence Custom Homes would be happy to meet with you to discuss a partnership together.
