In April of 1998, Jozef 'Joe' Basiorka and Zbigniew 'Ziggy' Tyrala started their company, J&Z Highlander's Construction, specializing in home framing and carpentry and masonry. Framing homes of various styles and sizes led them to build custom homes and spec homes of their own design in 2002. Highlander’s Heritage Homes is the name they gave their home building business. The name stems from the style and craftsmanship of the most beautiful homes in Europe. This bold and elegant home building style is the basis of Joe's and Ziggy's designs.
The two men were friends in Poland and brought with them the stylish designs and long-lasting craftsmanship of the most revered homes in Europe. Highlander’s Heritage Homes builds houses of original design as well as remodels the interiors of existing structures. Whether the home has been built from the ground up or simply renovated, the owners will see the superior craftsmanship of a Highlander’s home. Every project has its own distinct characteristics that set them apart from other homes. Our homes can be recognized from the street by their quality and uniqueness. Each home is crafted with care, capturing the grace and integrity of the past, and blending it with all the details, state-of-the-art conveniences and amenities that suit a modern family lifestyle.
