Owner, General Contractor, & Designer, Karla Payne Abercrombie, has always had a passion and love for architecture and design and had a vision as a young girl of being a designer. She studied architectural design in school and at the age of 19 she started her own business. At the age of 20 Karla and her husband Scotty began to help run the family business and work alongside her dad & mom, Karl and Lorraine Payne, at Payne Insurance Agency.

In 2010, Scotty and Karla purchased the agency so that her parents could retire after 33 years of creating a strong company that values each and every client. At this time Karla placed all of her passion in growing and updating the family business. After spending 16 years as the CEO and financial accountant for the company, Karla made the decision to once again chase her little girl dream of design. She then began to build homes in Ellijay for people to live the mountain life that she has been so blessed to enjoy. It is from all of her years and experience building, managing, updating, and being a part of the housing industry, and running the companies, that she developed her skills. Karla believes that if you have the passion and the desire to do great things that anything is possible. Her Southern charm & flair, great attention to detail, desire to help families build their home, her ability to never give up, & her passion to bring perfection to any home is what drives her to pursue her passion.

After completing the extensive training and testing to obtain her license, Karla is now a fully licensed and insured General Contractor with the state of Georgia! With her years of success building high-end homes, Karla is now proudly offering and scheduling new construction homes specializing in the price range of the $400’s and up. Karla offers a highly custom home and has access to the most sought after high-end design available. Karla is blessed that God has allowed her to achieve her dream of owning and operating her own building and design firm and she looks forward to working hand in hand with you on your next home or project.

Personal Attention

Personal attention to designKarla’s part in the process is very hands-on. She is on the job site daily. It is her top priority to not only build beautiful homes, but a home that achieves extreme quality and workmanship. Every single decision made is personal to her. She is very hands-on in the project and makes sure everyone has the knowledge and ability to get the job completed. Building a home is like taking a photo and chipping away layer after layer to achieve the final outcome. From the beginning, Karla can see the finished product in her mind. The rest of the journey is getting it to that point. She feels that is why she has been successful, is that she sees the finished product no matter how far away that might seem. Karla and the team of Cherry Bloom Homes and Designs look forward to building your dream home!

A passion for fixer-uppers or starting from scratch and building dream homes, either option, Karla greets with passion and strives for perfection.

From a designer’s point of view, it is best to build a home for the ideal layout & character built in so that in the end, your family’s dream is complete. This is best to be accomplished as the house is built if possible. Most homes are not built with the placement of furniture, convenience, and function in mind, Karla made this a priority. Each and every room is designed to offer multiple options of furniture placement and the homes are always designed to help make your home your sanctuary of peace and functionality.

One word we do not use is can’t. Everything is possible and no client is too picky in our book. Just someone that knows exactly what they want or you don’t know at all and you need ideas to help you decide. Karla fully understands and isn’t afraid to put in the time to make sure every decision made is just right. Cherry Bloom Homes strives to always go the extra mile in every home and in every project they are working on. It is understood by everyone that works on Karla’s projects that it must be completed correctly or it is re-done. At all costs, producing an excellent product that will last the homeowner a lifetime is the top priority. She builds each and every home as if it is her own and with great pride.

The homes that are featured were all built with great detail. When a project is more of a passion than a job, it becomes a labor of love. Buying a home is a special time in your life and your largest purchase. We want it to be exactly what you have always dreamed of and even more. Our biggest desire is that the passion that is placed in building these custom homes, is felt, and it will assure you that you have found the perfect builder and company for your new home or project.
