Michael Clagett, Firelight Homes

Our story

As a third-generation entrepreneur, Michael Clagett had his own home building company in early adulthood. He worked for another company during an economic downtown, but at the request of his client base, he and a business partner founded Firelight Homes in 2013.

They started Firelight Homes with a commitment to transparent expectations regarding finish, performance, responsibility, and financial management of the home building process. The team had a mission to do home building better: to be caretakers, not just builders. 

Over the years, the Firelight Homes team has built both homes and relationships, creating friends for life out of clients. Clients in Rabun County, Lake Oconee, Burton, Brookhaven, Sandy Springs, Buckhead, and more have chosen Firelight Homes for full transparency on the frontend and an enjoyable home building process.

“If it can be done, we can do it,” says Michael. “Possibilities are limitless. Every day is something unique and every job is unique. It’s an exciting time to be building.”

Every day is something unique, and every job is unique. It’s an exciting time to be building.
