The true essence of a Cornerstone Custom Home is found in the uniqueness of its design and enduring quality. Livable elegance and timeless beauty is the benchmark of every home we build. We begin by building a firm foundation of communication and understanding of the building process and costs with each homeowner before construction begins. This understanding between builder and homeowner allows for a smooth process of a home that is on time, on budget, and everything it can be for the homeowner.


Cornerstone Custom Homes was Featured in the 2009 Dream Home of Tennessee Book.

Edwin Rodriguez brought his passion for architectural design and an exceptional New York City artistic education to found Cornerstone Custom Homes in 1999 in the breathtaking green hills of the greater Knoxville area. When writing about his architect’s philosophy on restraint in design, Ludwig Mies van der Rhoe claimed that “God is in the details” This is certainly the tenet that Ed’s luxury home construction firm abides by in every custom project it undertakes. Never overdone, always timeless and impeccable, the residential structures that Ed and his professional team of experienced craftsmen create, are strikingly beautiful and well built – dwellings for the most discriminating homeowners – meant to be enjoyed today and for generations to come.
