So, who is Mark Mayfield?

Mark is a huge outdoors enthusiast and animal lover. In fact, Mark grew up on a horse farm and was constantly surrounded by horses, cows, turkeys, rabbits, chickens, dogs, cats, and even peacocks! If he had a choice, he’d be outdoors, in the wilderness at all times.

In addition to his wife of ten years and two teenage daughters, he has two loyal labradors. When he has spare time, he’s traveling, hiking, boating, fishing, wood working, sport shooting, or cooking.  Mark’s appreciation for the outdoors has heavily influenced his sustainable and energy efficient building style.

A Longtime Passion for Custom Home Building

Mark always knew he was destined for a career in the construction industry. His career jump started when he was a young boy swinging a hammer for his father’s construction and remodeling company.  After 20 plus years of working for others in various markets from; remodeling, custom home building, multi-family, to heavy industrial civil and mechanical construction, Mark decided it was time to make his personal stamp on the construction industry, and Modern Structure was born. 

Growing up in the construction business; Mark understands that hard work, honesty, and quality craftsmanship are the keys to success. Mark also understands the value of a dollar, and wants to help his customers stretch that dollar with creative ideas to help meet their budgets.

By using past experiences, professional business practices, modern technology, and hands-on involvement throughout the whole building process, Mark offers his clients the peace of mind that they’re going to get the finished product they’ve always dreamed of.

Mark never stops learning and improving. In 2024 he was named the President of the Southwestern Indiana Builders Association, an elite group of home building professionals that are dedicated to keeping housing safe and affordable in Southwestern Indiana. He is heavily involved with protecting our housing market and making sure pricing and practices are fair and ethical. 

The Best Part of the Home Building Process

The home building process is a complex one; but with the right home builder on your side, it can be an enjoyable experience. It’s important to find a builder that takes challenges head-on, doesn’t shy away from creative thinking, and most of all….communicates!

When it comes to building someone’s dream home, Mark truly enjoys problem solving and thinking outside the box. His favorite part of the process is coming up with the conceptual home design, and then molding it into exactly what the customer wants. And we think it goes without saying that seeing the finished product, and the smiles on the homeowners faces is always going to top the list. 

What Makes Mark Different?

In the Evansville area, you have several fantastic builders to choose from. The key to finding a builder you really “click” with, is finding one that keeps you involved, respects your time, and communicates along the way.


Prompt responsiveness and constant communication are part of what makes Mark different. If you call, it gets answered. If you have a question or concern, it will be addressed. If you need help selecting the right lighting fixtures for your kitchen, he’s there to help.

“When I was looking for a contractor I knew he was going to have to be someone who would want a challenge. I wanted an energy efficient house with ideas that were not common around this part of the country. Mark was that contractor!! He didn’t try to talk me out of my ideas but took on my challenges and ran with them and enjoyed the process. Mark is a very type A personality, which is great in a contractor. He is driven and takes his job seriously. He Keeps his worksite clean and tidy, weather permitting. At the end of the build, my house had one of the lowest HERS scores in the area. Mark had achieved my goal of an energy efficient home. The last thought I will leave with you is, I had a friend ask me “Would I build a house again?” I thought for a moment and said yes I would if I had Mark as my contractor”.  – Janell R.


“Mark is a fantastic contractor!  We worked with him for our basement kitchen and not only was the process wonderful but the end result was so beautiful! Our basement went from drab to fab and Mark delivered on time and on budget” Highly recommend Modern Structure”! – Lauren P.
