When you walk into Donna Lynne Custom Homes, you are surrounded by a simple, yet warm and friendly working office. The traffic of SR200 drives by mostly unaware of the talented and generous woman, Donna Lynne Van Puymbrouk, who worked her way through the ranks in the male dominated field of custom home design earning awards, accolades and respect along the way. For 14 years, Donna Lynne has been focusing on the construction of higher end homes and custom remodeling.

What started as just a job working for a builder in Gainesville, Florida, almost 30 years ago, turned out to be a discovered passion.  As a woman, Donna Lynne had to prove herself a little more and work a bit harder to climb the rungs of home construction. Learning the processes behind color selection, design elements, financing and real estate, she proudly earned her license to operate on her own and perform her ideal job.

From start to finish, she will walk you every step of the way. Whether you are building a brand new home or remodeling, you become a part of the Donna Lynne family. Your home reflects your lifestyle and you will be amazed at the choices available for your personality to shine through. Turn your dream into a reality as she guides you through the beginning concept, budgeting, picking a lot, home design, construction, choosing flooring, counters and cabinets, all they way to the last coat of paint and the final planted shrub.

With the current economy, the market has seen a slow down in the construction of new homes. Homeowners now are choosing to stay in their homes longer. If you are remodeling your home, adding a room or expanding your usable square footage by creating outdoor living spaces, she can bring a woman’s point of view to the table. Blending functionality with style, she creates designer looks that are practical and within budget.

Donna Lynne’s professionalism extends well beyond the construction industry as proven by her commitment to her family and the community. This busy wife, mother of three, and avid Gator fan is involved in the following:
