Our clients express it best:   

"We began the process with Cairn saying we wanted a house that was not too big, but very detailed.  Even with that warning, I don’t imagine they realized what they were in for!  Every aspect of our house was unique, from the floor plan down to the cabinet hardware.  When you’re building a house that’s never been built before you have to be prepared for many complications, but Steve, Lisa, Jeff, and Sarah were ready and willing to handle anything that came up, and truly seemed to enjoy the challenge.  They were very organized with their schedule, Sarah kept us informed regarding what selections we should be focused on next, and our weekly construction meetings were always enjoyable.  In addition, their love of home design and in-depth knowledge of construction was apparent every step of the way.  Now that we’re living in the house, we couldn’t be more thrilled with the way it turned out!"

 "We couldn’t be happier with our new home, or with the team at Cairn Custom Homes who helped us bring our dream to life. They spent so much time with us and we received their attention and feedback at every step of the way. Each request and idea we had was welcomed and incorporated into the plan, inside and out. We had a very particular and unique design in mind, and with the teams expert guidance, we were able to create a truly inspired home that suites our family’s wants and needs. We would highly recommend Cairn Custom Homes to any of our friends and family!"

"Our home building experience was very calm and pleasant thanks to the knowledge and dedication of Steve Appler, Lisa Rosenthal, and Joanie McCann. From our very first meeting, it was evident that they were committed to building a home that matched our style and vision. Steve Appler was supremely knowledgeable of the architectural details and structural design. Lisa Rosenthal was a wealth of knowledge with respect to home selections and interior details. Joanie McCann kindly offered any and all assistance with the overall coordination of the building process. Steve, Lisa, and Joanie were extremely patient with us when we had revisions and questions. When issues did arise, they were resolved quickly, but with careful thought. When you start out on the journey of building a home, you anticipate the long wait and aggravation of so many decisions, but we personally enjoyed the entire process. We found it exciting, and the patience and kindness of Steve, Lisa, and Joanie contributed immensely to our happiness and satisfaction."
