Who We Are

Ikon Homes is built upon the idea of changing and redefining the new home construction and home remodeling experience. We have heard too many stories of those who have suffered through bad experiences with contractors and builders, and we believe that it is time for that to change.  


At Ikon Homes, we are committed to honesty, integrity, quality craftsmanship and service.  We will not be satisfied unless you feel as if we have treated your home like it is our own. We understand that your house is more than just 4 walls and a roof: it is where you are building your life.  We want to partner with you in making your new or existing home the best it can be for you and your family.

Zane & Lauren Ellis

Zane Ellis is a fourth generation builder that has been in the industry for 20 years.  He worked for his father growing up, learning the industry and developing his craft through building and remodeling homes and doing much of the work with their own hands. Zane then went on to work for other design/build companies as a home builder in Franklin, Tennessee before returning to Knoxville to obtain his own license as a general contractor and start Ikon Homes with his wife, Lauren.  


Lauren Ellis is a licensed realtor who also works to design spaces that are both classic and comfortable.  We are passionate about building, designing and creating a home that you can be proud of.  We believe that building a new home or remodeling your current home should be an experience that is exciting, not dreadful and we are dedicated to creating that type of experience for our clients.
