Your home should reflect all the things that tell your story. Where you’ve been, what’s important to you and what you value. Whether that is formal or relaxed, traditional or contemporary, high style or shabby chic, when your home tells your story it just feels right. Living in a Byrd Building home, designed and built just for you, is like slipping into your favorite chair. It just feels right and so do you when you are in it.

Byrd Building inspires exquisite residential projects for discerning clients who have a unique and personal vision for their home. We aim to do the extraordinary, even in the ordinary every day things.

Uncompromising quality, time-tested architecture and an honored dedication to establishing a personal relationship with every homeowner are synonymous with Byrd Building. We believe in the value of the “hands on” approach in every aspect of home construction. Byrd Building is committed to working harder and offering more to provide you with peace of mind and the highest level of trust and reassurance throughout the entire process. Employing the most reputable team of craftsmen for uncompromising workmanship is paramount. Our reputation depends on creating more than a house, but a home that you will be proud to share with your family friends.

Our approach.

“The business of designing and building custom homes is very personal. I wanted to gather a group of service-minded professionals – in every aspect of designing and building a home – so we could manage every step of the process and make good on the promise to our clients that together we would create a wonderful home and have fun doing it.”

-Rick Byrd

Owner & Founder

Established in 1998, Byrd Building is a family business managed by Rick and Dava Byrd. Rick grew up in a family of residential contractors, and graduated from the University of Oklahoma with a MS in Construction Administration. His experience ranges from cleaning job sites as an adolescent to project managing the renovation of the Civic Center Music Hall. He has been fortunate enough to work with some of Norman’s best home-builders, including NAHB Life Director Ben Newcomer, Don Cies, Bus Eoff, Clark Heatherington, George Musgrave, Don Overton, Claudell Overton, Charles Epperson, Mike Barnett, John Tune, Bob Thompson, Jimmy Motie, Ben Graves and others. A twelve-year career with Flintco, Inc. nurtured abilities in managing multiple size projects, working with a diverse group of professionals and a heightened sense of managing building processes and contractors.

Rick has crafted a selection of amazing luxury homes located within exclusive neighborhoods of central Oklahoma. Ranging from 2,500 to over 12,000 square feet, these homes feature superb architectural design, top-of-the-line appliances, custom built cabinetry, superior finishes, outdoor entertaining areas, full house basements, gymnasiums, golf simulator rooms, foam insulation, geothermal energy systems and numerous other luxurious amenities.
