From the first time we met with Dylan and his team, we knew they were the right choice. We wanted someone who would focus on quality and detail and that is exactly what they delivered. Other builders claimed to be “custom” but added that the only limitation was our pocketbook. With Howard Homes, Dylan made it clear from the beginning that “custom” just means you know what you want – and it shouldn’t cost more. We sat down and talked about what we really wanted the features of our new home to be – and then they put together some custom options that we tweaked along the way. This was a much better process than picking from a handful of existing floorplans and having to pay for modifications. Once the build started, we were at the site almost every day and the general contractor, Mark, and each and every subcontractor were extremely friendly and informative. As they worked, you could see their attention to detail come through – on occasion I would even see one of them start something over because it wasn’t quite right. You could tell they were each craftsmen and took pride in their work. From the custom gable brackets, to the cherry porch ceiling, to the hand-tooled floors they did a fantastic job on some of the key custom elements we wanted. And you’ve never seen a cleaner worksite on a new build. Everyone was great at communicating with us at every step. We absolutely love our new home. If we ever build or remodel again for any reason, Howard Homes will be the only choice for us.

We loved working with Howard Homes! We have built three homes and one business building with other construction companies and this was BY FAR the best build ever! Howard Homes is able to handle the more intricate and more difficult aspects involved in building your dream home.

Our build took a bit longer because I was laid up with knee surgery and we had some pretty awesome stuff built in our cabin.  A 14′ field stone fireplace, real logs inside the house…. The other builders that we interviewed would never have been able to handle our cabin. Our project manager was Mark Linden and he is great. He can handle detail and he follows through. We found that everyone at Howard Homes is a great communicator. Our cabin finished about a year ago but we had some more projects so we immediately wanted Howard Homes to do them. Right now, they are working on a deck, a storage garage and finishing door and trim work in the basement. They have many subcontractors who are really good at what they do but they will also allow you to bring in your own subcontractors.

Pricing was never an issue because we paid them a percent of what we picked for the cabin. I went over budget….They didn’t.

You can’t go wrong with Howard Homes! If you look at their reference list, you’ll find that they have a lot of repeat business which means they care about the quality of their work.

We are so happy with our home and want to thank you again for the energy, passion and talent you put towards our home. We are so glad we chose Howard Homes. Thank you always for listening and putting our best interests first.

Howard Homes is absolutely phenomenal and I refer anyone to them every chance I get. The amount of time and care they put into their homes is like no other. I was so incredibly blessed to find them and I compare all home services to what they did for us now.

As for what went wrong, we don’t have anything that did. Something came up and we had to pay a little extra for the sand that had to be brought in for our septic. That wasn’t Howard Homes fault, that was due to the clay we live on. It was an unexpected cost but it was well explained and we were not upset.

Dylan was wonderful and answered all my questions. Often times through text message and he was easy to get a hold of on the telephone. He was very responsive. It wasn’t just Dylan though, it is the whole team. Lori, Mark – the kindest people. Always willing to help, very flexible in any changes we made. It’s also who they choose as contractors. They choose good quality people.

Their quality is amazing. You can tell the difference between a Howard Homes house and competitors. They don’t cut corners. We’ve been complimented more times than I can count on the quality of random things….our trim, our windows, our furnace…even our hot water heater. I also love how environmental friendly they are. They’re innovators. Their quality and customer service are unmatched.

Even after we built I could and can still reach out and they always respond. I write them on the anniversary of our build and sing their praises to anyone that will listen. We are actually hoping to use them to finish our basement and build our 3 season porch in the next few years.

You’d be crazy not to use them!

We had Dylan and his team remodel our kitchen everything went very smoothly. Becky and I would like to thank everyone involved, the outcome exceeded all our expectations. We would recommend Howard Homes to anyone who is looking for any remodeling or building needs.


Dean & AJ Rorig

Dylan and his team turned an empty lot and a head full of ideas into our dream home. Lori kept everyone on track. Jim translated our ideas into plans. Mark supervised the crews and answered all our questions. Thank you for incorporating our style and wishes into the build. Much appreciation for coordinating with the solar and Finn stove suppliers. Couldn’t recommend this company more for a truly custom home.
