I began building custom homes in 2002. I was successful and learned a great deal about business, but probably more about people. I found out that building someone's home isn't as exciting as sharing in bits and pieces of their “Life Stories”. Having a connection with who you are working for is very important to me. In fact, it is what keeps me going, my inspiration if you will.
A downturn in the economy forced me into another avenue of business where I thrived financially, but wasn't inspired or couldn't find purpose in what I was doing. Some personal losses and some life changes gave me the impetus I needed to reevaluate what it is that I wanted to do.
I was looking for something that inspired me, something that was not just a house or an addition. I wanted to affect people in a positive way, change their lives for the better. A few fortuitous encounters with started me thinking about this growing need for home remodeling centered around staying at home as long as possible. My father had trouble bathing himself the last few weeks of his life and his Marine Corps Pride wouldn't allow him to ask for help. I have often thought how much easier his time here would have been if I had done a little remodeling to assist him in taking care of himself.
So here I am! Ready to take my years of construction experience and my desire to assist those in need, and combine them into a resource for making life better.

Hugh understood our vision and delivered. He offered ideas and good alternatives to help us create our vision while working within our budget. Hugh has an excellent relationship with quality subcontractors and with the community so our project ran smoothly. He addressed any concerns in a timely fashion. We noticed that Hugh even rolled up his own sleeves and participated in the construction when needed.
We absolutely love our new home and are so glad we partnered with Hugh!"

"We discovered Hugh Sager/Gracehaven Construction when researching tiny houses online and we couldn't have had better luck. He was very easy to work with and amenable to any unusual suggestions we proposed. Moreover, he did solid and meticulous work throughout all the project and went the extra mile to deal with Winchester City regarding permit and code issues. As a bonus, he's well-educated and an excellent conversationalist - so if you get bored, you can just hang out with him while he works."
