build a better home with a local builder

quality construction and finishes are our standard!


We are a proud member of the Home Builders Association of Cincinnati!

why We're Different

and you'll love us for it.

we are not a volume builder.... we are a custom builder!

We are local and take pride in constructing quality custom homes by working directly with our client throughout the entire process. Mark Pottebaum, Redknot's owner, is personally involved in every project from the beginning to the end with an onsite Redknot project manager handling the daily logistics, etc.

we focus on design and quality

We partner with the best home designer in the market to deliver function, style and quality with every home.  We build a better home from ground up including but not limited to 2x6 walls, premium subfloors (not OSB), premium house wrap, 30 year foundation waterproofing with integrated drain tile, high R-value insulation throughout and energy efficient windows, doors and HVAC systems,   Most of these items are overlooked because people (homeowners and builders) are usually focused on finishes.  While we can finish a home with the very best of them, we think the construction of the home is the key factor makes a quality built home.  All of these items are standard in every home we build. 

we build LEED rated homes


At Redknot Homes, we know and understand the importance of building green. LEED, Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, is changing the way we think about how buildings and communities are planned, constructed, maintained and operated. Of the homes we certify, our typical specifications generally equate to a Silver or Gold level LEED rating.

you save on finishes

·  We supply all finishes/allowances at our discounted builders rate.  We have negotiated builder discounting at numerous local vendors in addition to various national and online suppliers as well which we pass onto our clients.  This saves our clients thousands of dollars on every project!

raving redknot fans

Thank you for such a positive experience with your team. Everyone was pleasant and the work was accurate and fast. I was very pleased with the quality of work and the time in which your team was able to accomplish what we needed. Your team was responsive and helpful during the planning and completion of the work requested.
— Jessica V, Cincinnati
We were so pleased to find a first house that exceeded our expectations and that was within our price range. When we had any issues prior to closing/moving in Mark and his team were quick to address the concern and fix the problem. The team didn’t just worry about aesthetics but with product durability and functional living. They didn’t cut corners and made sure that everything they did was done well.

Even months after we’ve been in the home, members at Redknot have reached out to make sure that everything is still working well. It’s great to know that this is a company that just doesn’t do the work and walk away. They are interested in making sure that they have happy customers long after the initial job is complete. They stand by their work and that’s important to me.
— Katie G, Glendale
The quality of the work was very good and I would highly recommend. Very easy to work with and delivered above expectations. It was difficult to even get other builders to call me back or follow through. Redknot was the exact opposite. A+
