Family-Owned Construction Business
Elms-Clowers Construction, Inc. is a family-owned business that began in March 1982. David Elms and Terry Clowers, who are married to sisters Janis Allison Elms and Nancy Allison Clowers, started the company in Little Rock to serve Central Arkansas. Even though each partner had experience in different areas of the construction industry, the short-term plan was to learn as much about each trade as possible with “hands-on” experience.
For many years, both David and Terry worked together in every area of construction such as foundation work, framing, hanging and finishing sheetrock, installing interior trim, building cabinets, roofing, as well as other areas of the construction process. Their primary goal was to fashion the company after “old school” construction methods and philosophies. They were committed to conducting ethical, fair business practices and building a quality home that would stand the test of time.
Elms-Clowers completed their first start-to-finish home in 1983 in Maumelle, Arkansas. Since then, they have built many homes (mostly custom) for many wonderful clients. In 1993, Elms-Clowers moved their offices to Conway, AR. They settled at the current location on Stermer Rd. This 15,000 square foot facility not only houses offices, conference room, and various storage areas but a fully functioning cabinet shop.
Elms-Clowers is Conway’s original, cutting-edge cabinet design craftsmen. David Elms and Terry Clowers brought the Dallas Home Shows concepts to Central Arkansas and pioneered the beautiful custom designs many top luxury home builders use in the area today. They are well-known and celebrated for their exquisite custom cabinets. Many custom home builders commission Elms-Clowers cabinets for their client’s new home construction or renovations.
Today, Elms-Clowers provides construction management for custom homes, room additions, remodeling projects, screen porch additions and cabinets built to exacting standards. Methods have changed since the days mini-shops were set up in each house that was under construction to make that home’s custom cabinets. Now, homeowners see their cabinetry before they are produced through computer-aided design (CAD drawing).
