Homeworks of Alabama, East Alabama’s premier custom home building and design company, was founded by Allan and Lisa Campfield in April 2004. Their residential construction company is located in Opelika, Alabama near the fast-growing TigerTown shopping center, and is known throughout Opelika, Auburn and Lee County for its well-crafted, gorgeous new homes.
Homeworks of Alabama is one of the two exclusive builders in The Springs of Mill Lakes. The Springs of Mill Lakes is a master-planned community for 55-plus active adults who seek an easy living lifestyle, beautiful new homes, and generous amenities. The natural setting is quiet and undisturbed, with two lakes, wandering creeks, natural waterfalls, and an adjacent wildlife preserve.
Building on Excellence
Growing up in a military family, Allan moved often. His father, a career Navy man, always had a construction project going, and as a teenager, Allan helped him roof a home, build additions, and do masonry work. “My Dad taught me to appreciate hard work and to enjoy the fruit of my labor,” remembers Allan.
Allan joined the United States Army where he served more than twenty years, including as a Jump Master in the U.S. Army Airborne School. “In three weeks time, we had to train students, many who had never flown before, how to perform combat parachute jumps and be a proficient paratrooper.”
After retiring from the U.S. Army, Allan and his wife Lisa pursued their joint interest in building and renovating homes. At this time, Lisa, who is a gifted interior designer, owned Space Appeal, providing design services to individual clients and several homebuilders.
“We decided to try our hand at flipping properties, back before the term became common. Our first home purchase was a 100-year-old home just blocks away from Opelika’s historic district. When we were finished, a city inspector jokingly told us, “I guess you can make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear.”
Allan and Lisa “fell in love” with the entire process, and two years and several homes after this first major renovation, they opened Homeworks of Alabama and built their first new homes. Lisa decided to close Space Appeal to focus her efforts as lead designer for their growing company.
A separate division, Homeworks Designer Services assists homebuyers with selecting interior and exterior finishes and colors, lighting, cabinetry, floor covering, and plumbing fixtures. “As a Homeworks of Alabama client, you receive free access to our designer services. We are here to assist you in seeing your dreams realized in your new home,” says Lisa.
The Springs of Mill Lakes
In 2015, Allen Harris, developer of The Springs of Mill Lakes, a master-planned residential community of 134 single-family custom homes, selected Homeworks of Alabama as one of two builders in the new active living neighborhood.
The Springs of Mill Lakes is specifically designed to appeal to the active 55+ homeowner who seeks an easy-living lifestyle surrounded by nature. The amenity-rich neighborhood in the vibrant town of Opelika, near Alabama’s major university town of Auburn and its top medical facilities, broke ground in June 2016.
“Lisa and I have been so impressed with Allen Harris and his attention to detail,” notes Allan. “Watching all the preparation and study that went into every element of this development, and then to see his passion become reality in the execution of the plans, has been an exciting experience.”
“We are honored to be part of the top team at The Springs of Mill Lakes. Like Allen Harris, we pride ourselves on paying attention to all details – large and small. Lisa and I know that our focus on the details results in a beautiful, top quality home.”
Allan is an active member of the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), and in his spare time enjoys watching the Atlanta Falcons. He and Lisa are the proud parents of two sons and one daughter, and live by the teachings in Mark 8:36: “What does it profit a man to gain the whole world and lose his soul?”
