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 then at the age of 19 she started her own business and built 12 rental properties. 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 find homes, 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 insured General Contractor with the state of Georgia!

She is very hands-on in the project and makes sure everyone has the knowledge and ability to get the job completed.
