Dan Tingen


Respected throughout the Triangle area, veteran custom home builder Dan Tingen founded Tingen Construction Company in 1980. He has long been known for his hands-on experience, reliable service, and dedication to his craft and to the home building industry. These attributes have combined to result in an outstanding reputation for building exceptional custom homes. Dan has built an abundance of homes in Wake, Orange, and Chatham Counties over the years, and has recently added Franklin and Lee Counties to his repertoire. His homes range in price from the $250s to $1.3 million.

As former President of the Home Builders Association of Raleigh-Wake County, Dan is a Wake County native and a graduate of Campbell University, where he obtained a Business Administration degree. According to Dan, he realized early in his career that his success is directly related to how well he communicates and works towards the needs and desires of his customers. With this belief in mind, Dan assembled an excellent team committed to building customers the homes they expect and deserve.

“I learned years ago that satisfied customers sell more homes than any type of advertising,” says Dan. “A satisfied customer not only recommends me to their friends, but they may also come back to me to build their next home. This is the best compliment I can receive, and I’m honored to have received this opportunity quite a few times over the years.”

Throughout the custom home building process, Dan and his team assist clients in design decision-making and exterior/interior product selections. Dan determines what aspects of the  home are most important to each client and guides the building process accordingly. This careful attention to detail has allowed his creativity to thrive not only in building custom homes, but also in the realm of building speculative homes in targeted Triangle-area neighborhoods.
