About Old Town Design Group

Custom Home Designs With a Difference

Our innovative process takes the stress and uncertainty out of building a custom home. Instead, our team focuses on you to deliver a personalized, thoroughly enjoyable custom home design experience—and a home built with character and built to last.

At Old Town, we believe that custom homes should reflect their owners—through unique features, right-sized floor plans, and ideal locations—and that the building process should be clear, interactive, and enjoyable.

Founding partners Jeff and Justin not only have 30 years of award-winning custom home design experience between them, but they also infuse Old Town Design Group with a vision for building relationships and dynamic neighborhoods in Central Indiana.

We love what we do and would consider it a privilege to work with you to make your ideal home a reality. Get in touch with us to set up a meeting and learn more about how we can work together.

Our Story

Lifetime Carmel residents Jeff Langston of Heartwood Custom Homes—a custom homebuilder with decades of experience in the area—and Justin Moffett—an experienced local developer—united to form Old Town Design Group with a goal to improve the communities where they work and live. Merging strengths in urban style, community development, and award-winning luxury home construction, Old Town Design Group combines quality craftsmanship, outstanding locations, and timeless custom home designs.

Jeff Langston


Jeff grew up in a family of custom homebuilders, so his passion for creating unique home designs runs deep. As the owner and operator of Indiana’s award-winning Heartwood Custom Homes, Jeff gained over a decade of construction management experience. After joining forces with Justin, Jeff put his expertise to work crafting Old Town’s unique homebuilding process. Jeff currently serves on the board of directors for the Builders Association of Greater Indianapolis, and he and his wife Wendy and their three children are active members of Carmel United Methodist Church and Carmel youth sports.



Justin enjoys putting his business management background and passion for land development to work in every custom home we build. As lifelong residents of Carmel, Justin, his wife Jennifer, and their four sons are deeply involved with serving the Carmel, Westfield, and Zionsville communities. Their home in Old Town Carmel near the Monon Trail is part of Old Town Design Group’s vision for a revitalized downtown and serves as an ongoing inspiration for Justin as he seeks outstanding communities for clients.
