How one family defines quality in a builder…

Categories: Custom Home | Posted: January 3, 2019

Custom Modern Farmhouse KitchenFor Kara and Erik Ward, trustworthiness was one of the key players in their decision process upon choosing a custom home builder. What comes to mind for you when you think about choosing a company to build your forever home? What standards of ethics are top of your list? Does price rank first in your mind, building practices, or maybe quality products?  Read below for Kara and Erik’s take on why they chose to work with Cedar Knoll Builders:

“Choosing someone to build your house is a big decision for some. For us there was no question about whom we would choose. The most important quality about a builder is trustworthiness, and when the leader of a company has your full trust, you know that those under him are worthy of respect. Knowing a company follows Christian standards and has the same beliefs as you do is something that is not commonly found and makes a world of difference. Being able to trust that those individuals who are helping you along every step of the building process are of utmost importance. Every person at Cedar Knoll has been incredibly kind and lived up to the great expectation of trust we began this process with. We were helped to stay within budget while being guided into creating our dream home! From the planning to the decorating details, Cedar Knoll has made our dreams of building a house become a reality!” – The Ward Family

When you have made the giant decision to build a new home, there are so many elements that come into play. For the Ward Family, trustworthiness was one of the key players in their decision to work with Cedar Knoll Builders in bringing their dream home to life. Here’s what they had to share:

Nostalgic West Chester Dream Home

Categories: Custom Home | Posted: April 16, 2015

The year 2014 wrapped up many wonderful new homes and commercial construction projects that rolled into the spring of 2015. One of which was  completed just last month but with a friendship that has only just begun. Meet Mike and Sue, Custom Home Clients. After an unfortunate house fire, Mike lost his parents home along with all of their keepsakes and memorabilia. Both devastated from this loss but hopeful for the future, this lovely couple walked through our doors and a friendship immediately developed. The dream – rebuild his childhood home to what it once was and more.

After several plan meetings and site walk-thrus, it wasn’t long before the debris was being removed and the foundation poured. Light-hearted and easy to please, Mike & Sue often stopped in to share photos on the progress of their home. Not to discredit the photos, but the joy they brought in sharing them far outweighed the photos themselves!

A Computer Programmer by day and an Music and Fine Arts Artist by night, Mike now enjoys his spacious Kitchen with overhead lighting, Family Room with Masonry Fireplace and Home Office with Custom Bay Window that overlooks the backyard gardens where Sue can most likely be found. Built just off the stunning white kitchen is a lovely Custom Conservatory for all of Sue’s favorite plant specimens that will soon occupy her personal Longwood Gardens backyard refuge. The Conservatory consists of stone exterior with tile flooring and glass surround, perfect for star gazing and summer evenings on the patio.

If a picture is worth a thousand words, the photos of this home could provide pages of words, suffice it to say however, if one word could describe both this home and it’s owners, I would choose the word endearing.Custom Home 1Custom Home 2Custom Home 3
