We want to be…


Gary Dailey


Cornerstone Construction began in 1986, the official start of a long nourished passion for building. It has been my privilege for the past 25 years to practice the craft of fine custom homebuilding in and around the Tupelo area. I am a New Orleans native and a 1975 and 1977 graduate of Auburn University. My wife Becky and I have resided in Tupelo since 1979. I have made a conscious decision over the years to be an artisan builder. I personally oversee and manage all of the many details involved in the planning and construction of each Cornerstone Construction home and dutifully limit the number of projects under construction to assure exceptional quality craftsmanship and an exceptional building experience.




Cornerstone Construction is committed to working with you to create the home of your dreams. We will treat you with respect, be attentive to your needs and listen to your concerns. We will strive to anticipate opportunities in order to minimize surprises. We will maintain a level of integrity that is beyond reproach.

Cornerstone Construction feels it is our responsibility to educate and guide you throughthe building process. We will serve as counselor, educator and director to ably marry the realities of your budget with the desires of your heart. We want this experience to be enjoyable and successful while creating an exciting memory for you to share.
