In 2000, Designer Construction Corporation, now doing business as “Axhoj Enterprises”, was established as a North Carolina “S” corporation by Kris and Rhonda Axhoj. In the beginning, we marketed a custom home line under “Kris Axhoj Homes” and concentrated on high-end unique products for almost twenty years. In 2005, Kris began to work on affordable solutions for mass affordable housing; however, due to the Great Recession, his efforts were delayed. From 2012 to 2014, the company pursued working with the Brazilian Government to aid in their affordable housing initiative (Minha Casa, Minha Vida – My House, My Life). In 2014, we built our first prototype using steel construction. In 2019, Axhoj Enterprises started a facility to produce our own components for housing. Currently, we are developing unique and efficient building systems that are being rolled out in the Charlotte area.
Our technology and building processes have simplified the on-site construction of a home down to non-skilled labor. This building system can be implemented over many vertical markets as a best practices building solution. As the Sears Homes revolutionized the home construction market in 1908, selling over 70,000 home kits, this new building system will be a revolutionary solution for affordable housing.
There is a massive need for affordable, healthy, sustainable housing and
WE HAVE A SOLUTION!
