About Old Town Design Group

The Old Town Design Group was formed by Jeff Langston and Justin Moffett with the objective of developing and building unique residential communities in and around the city of Carmel. The company was started with a vision of serving the needs of clients seeking a well-built and right sized custom home with a high level of detailing, but without the wasted square footage and everything that goes along with it.

Starting with Blackwell Park, Cobblestone Commons, Applegate, and Reading Tree Park in old town Carmel, and now Gray Oaks on Carmel's east side, the company has continued to expand by using our market expertise to create opportunities for clients to live in both the ideal home and the ideal location.

Justin Moffett is passionate about working with clients to design the perfect home and is constantly engaged in seeking “outstanding locations” for new home communities. Justin got his start in the land development and home building business eight years ago after studying ministry and business management at Indiana Wesleyan. Prior to entering the industry, Justin served in a pastoral ministry role with a church in Kokomo, IN. 

Justin and his wife Jennifer, an illustrator and stay-at-home mom, are both life-long residents of Carmel and the parents of three very active boys; Jackson, Marcus, and Fletcher. The Moffetts attend Common Ground Christian Church and love living in old town Carmel near the Monon Trail.

Jeff Langston brings a vast amount of home design and construction management experience to Old Town as the owner and operator of the award winning Heartwood Custom Homes. For the past 12 years Heartwood has thrived as one of central Indiana’s premier luxury custom home builders. Prior to starting Heartwood, Jeff worked for Procter and Gamble as both a financial analyst and as a marketing manager. Jeff currently serves on the board of directors for the Builders Association of Greater Indianapolis. 

Jeff and his wife Wendy, an interior designer and owner of Everything Home, are the parents of three children; Jack, Thomas, and Nicole. The Langstons attend Carmel United Methodist Church and are very active in Carmel youth sports.


  • “The experience of building and living in an Old Town Design Group home in downtown Carmel has exceeded our expectations on every level. Justin and Wendy and the rest of the design team captured the look and feel of the home we wanted to build, giving valuable advice along the way, and patiently answering our endless questions and revising and re-revising the plans until they were just what we wanted.

    We recommend Old Town Design Group without hesitation. Unfortunately, they will not be building another home for us, as they have already built us our dream home!"

    -Steve & Jacque Kirsh
  • "Saying ‘thank you’ hardly feels appropriate when someone makes your dreams come true.  We trusted OTDG to build the house of dreams, and  they gave us a home that is more than we could have imagined.  We’d recommend OTDG to our closest friends and family – in fact we already have!

    We love our new home!  Justin Moffett is among the best in the industry.  He helped us find the right location, tweak our designs in ways we never would have thought of, guided us with patience and grace through the building process, and continued to followup to make sure we’re completely satisfied even after we moved into the house.  Working with OTDG feels like I’m working with close friends who are personally invested in making our new house the perfect home for our family. 

    Anyone considering building a home with OTDG needs to understand that every member of the OTDG team treated us like family.  Literally.  We never imagined the experience would be so personalized and so much care would be given to making sure we were 100% satisfied."

  • "The Old Town Design Group turned the creation of our house, which is all we hoped it would be, into an enjoyable experience.   Our ideas were combined with their ideas, experience and expertise.   Old Town made the multitude of decisions much easier by reducing the overwhelming choices to manageable selection groups, without limiting us to those suggestions.  All group members had our satisfaction in mind throughout their process; from facilitating financing, to creating our personalized design, to approval at each construction stage, to the closing celebration."

    -Susan & Steve Ring
  • “Old Town Design Group made my home building and design process seem very smooth.  They have a high attention to detail which allowed me to feel comfortable with their recommendations and their answers when I had questions.  Their network of suppliers and sub-contractors also gave me a sense of ease for when I have service request in the future.  They are one of the few local builders that listen to the client’s wish list, and create custom options in each home that give the wow factor that every home owner desires.”

    -Tim Johnston
  • "We didn't know this when we were looking for a builder, but for us, the most important criteria turned out to be trust. We've never built a house before,and we suddenly had to make all sorts of decisions about things we've never even thought about. In the midst of changing our minds, not quite understanding things or just plain forgetting, it was really important that we were working with someone who we trusted, who wouldn't just throw a contract at us in the midst of a disagreement. And thankfully, that "someone" was Justin Moffett and Jeff Langston."

    -Stan & Allison Chen
  • We decided to build with The Old Town Design Group mainly due to the relationship we have with Jeff. He built our last house and it was a very positive experience. Well, this group has not disappointed either.  We were involved with the entire process from the beginning to the end. The staff helped make the whole experience easier. They worked as a team with us to get the quality home we desired. 
    Wendy, who has a great eye for color and detail, was a huge help to me especially when it came to paint and flooring selections.  Jeff and Justin were also extremely helpful with their knowledge and expertise in the design and construction of our home.  Their years of experience played a large role in achieving the final product. We absolutely love our new home!
