"A man travels the world over in search of what he needs and returns home to find it."

Compass Rose:  “A high-end general contractor and custom builder that is passionate about creating beautiful, one-of-a-kind products with lasting quality."

 Passion inspired. Passion; it separates the bold and inspired from the ordinary builder. We at Compass Rose Development are motivated by our passion for designing and building unique custom living areas and furniture that can stand the test of time, both structurally and aesthetically. From a simple sketch, an old photograph, or a brief conversation Compass Rose can create the premier custom design that you have always imagined.  Your project will be completely original, beautifully designed, and functional.

How can do we do this?  Compass Rose draws upon over three decades of expertise creating some of the finest custom homes across America. The Compass Rose custom design team is comprised of true architectural artists and experts that specialize in creating unique and personal designs that are rich in detail and deep in character. We put the world’s best building materials and tools in the hands of highly skilled craftsmen. Finally, we ensure that every aspect of the project meets your expectation, and is built to last. The result is a home or a furniture piece that is more a reflection of your personality and imagination.

Creating designs for today and for the future. This is an important and responsible concept that is incorporated into every custom product built at Compass Rose. Our designs reflect a sustainable and energy efficient vision for the future.  Compass Rose focuses on nature’s gift of renewable energy sources, offering both passive and active solar designs when appicable. We are there, right where nature and modern technology converge.

Let us make your ideas a reality. Contact Compass Rose, Cleveland’s finest general contractor, to start the journey of building your own, unique custom living area, furniture piece, or an entire home.
