Since 2010, Sky Lake Construction has built affordable, quality homes with modern floor plans and custom amenities in subdivisions that are sought after because of their convenient locations and excellent school districts. Sky Lake Construction is a family owned business founded by Jerry and Jackie McBride. Three of McBride children are on staff and are major contributors in the day to day operation and success of the company. Because they reside across the state of MS, each of them supervises the construction sites in different neighborhoods with the help of an experienced and talented team of employees.
Though the business office is based in DeSoto County, the family currently builds homes primarily in Southaven, Starkville and Brandon, MS. In order to provide convenience and support to each client, S.O.S. Realty, Sky Lake Construction's sister company, is available to offer assistance in selecting the perfect, affordable home and finding financial assistance to make the dream of purchasing a home a reality.
Along with Sky Lake Construction and S.O.S. Realty, the McBrides also own and operate M & R Builders, their commercial development business.
