Level Craft Construction is a woman-owned home builder, which means when you choose Level Craft for a remodel or custom home, you get a female-focused team with a great eye for projects from design to completion. With all the focus on diversity and inclusion, the homebuilding industry is one place that women are making inroads with positions, as well as closing the wage gap. This issue has come to the forefront at the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) where it has formed a Diversity, Equity and Inclusion taskforce.
With over 20 years of experience designing, building and renovating homes and commercial spaces, Level Craft Construction partners Virginia Van Lear and Debbie Hollonbeck provide customers with everything they could ever dream of. From the overall job site to a home’s intricate trim and finished, Level Craft Construction strives for perfection. The duo’s love of art provides them with an eye for a colorful and rich palette that helps them envision possibilities and ultimately craft a unique masterpiece for each homeowner.
Meet the Partners
Virginia Van Lear and Debbie Hollonbeck come from different backgrounds which is what makes their collaboration so special. Virginia has been building and renovating homes in the Atlanta area since 1996. As a licensed Residential Contractor and EarthCraft certified builder, Virginia’s vast experience and hands-on knowledge help her keep projects on schedule and within budget. One of only a handful of female contractors in Atlanta, she finds this gives her a powerful advantage over other builders in the area. Virginia has a degree in art from the University of Georgia.
With years of experience teaching art at elementary schools, Debbie enjoys utilizing her visual brain alongside her more analytical side when designing and restoring homes. Debbie’s passion for home building started when she and her husband, Scot, renovated their personal home in Inman Park. Next they built a new house in Oakhurst with a local builder, and from there Debbie was hooked on home building. She turned this new interest into a full-time position with a local builder and after six years she left that position and joined Level Craft Construction as a partner.
