Brittany Ogle

Office Manager

Meet Brittany, the South River Office Manager. When not running things behind the scenes at the home office, you can find her with her husband, Josh, and three kids – Carter, Zoey and Lynlee – making memories on the road in their camper. She was born and raised in Chesterfield and enjoys cooking, summer days at the pool and fall nights at the ball fields. She loves being apart of the South River team and expanding her construction knowledge from growing up with many contractors in her family.

Jennifer Gavin

Selections Specialist

Hi! I’m Jennifer. I live in Midlothian with my husband and two kiddos! South River built my dream home and it was such an amazing experience and the staff was un-matched so I thought what better company to work with than the one who built your dream home!


Concerning Our Home Collections

Our process is unique, providing a truly hands-on building process from OUR team. We understand that your home is more than just an address – it’s an expression of your vision and lifestyle. Your home is where you experience the best moments of life with family and friends. We handcraft each home with this understanding.

Our method

Regarding South River Custom Homes' Floor Plan

First, we will help you narrow down the community in which you want to live, then we help you in selecting the floor plan that is right for your expectations.

We determine the best site, after that, it is time to “build your house on paper”.

This is a time when we will sit down with you and go over all included features, in addition to any personalized amenities that you may want to add to your home.

(i.e., granite countertops, upscale appliances, hardwood floors, detailed trim work, etc.)

Building a home can be a stressful process, so we walk with you every step of the way as you move from the conceptual phase through the plans, home site choice, and selections process. Here is the roadmap to your new home:
