About Affordable Building Concepts

Affordable Building Concepts is a family owned and run garage builder business based out of Lebanon, TN. Mike and Julie Mathis made the decision to launch the business twenty years ago, after much soul searching and deliberation. At the time, Mike had a good job with another construction company and Julie was working full time as a nurse at the local hospital. We could have continued as we were, and been fine. However, Mike’s dad had been urging him for many years to go out on his own and start his own garage builders Lebanon, TN company. With about $3000.00 in savings, and faith in each other, we launched Affordable Building Concepts, and Mike’s dream became a reality!

Living on a shoestring budget, we worked hard to secure relationships with subcontractors, vendors, and all of the other entities necessary to create a thriving business. As our reputation for quality work at fair prices grew, we began to grow as a company. We have always tried to live by the philosophy passed down from Mike’s dad to “never leave a customer unhappy.” We always do business with this in mind. We will do whatever is necessary to make our customers happy and 100% satisfied, even if it means losing money on a job. That is because we believe in old fashioned hard work and having integrity in everything that we do. When you work with us you will receive expert opinions and help from us directly as we keep a close eye on each of our projects.
