When Chris and I contemplated building a new home the first builder that came to mind was Cobblestone Builders. Chris and I were aware of Cobblestone through past and present customers. We researched other builders and have been beyond pleased with our decision to choose Cobblestone. When Chris and I compared a Cobblestone home to others it was an easy decision to choose Cobblestone. Other builders tried to sway us by their “special” deals such as “x”amount of dollars in upgrades. The upgrades that other builders offered were standard for Cobblestone, which saved a lot of confusion. Also, a majority of Cobblestone standards were already higher grade than the upgrades that were offered by other builders. One other major factor that helped us in our decision was the 2 year warranty; we could not find any other builder that could match up.

I cannot express how helpful Dirk and Stevie were in this whole process. For being new to building a home, there were plenty of times when we were at wits end. Dirk guided us through the confusion with ease and patience. Stevie was helpful in informing us about what items we needed to chose and when we needed to complete our decisions. .

I was also impressed to know that Dirk and Stevie were at the job site every day to check on what the contractors have completed. It was also comforting to see how clean the job site was during the building process. There are other homes that are being built by other builders in our subdivision whose job sites were not very neat in appearance. I will not forget the day when I came over to the job site and I observed Dirk going “hands on” with the building and cleaning of the job site. That made me even more secure knowing that Dirk and Stevie take pride in their product and not just “push pencils and point fingers”.

We took occupancy of our new home in September 2009 which was a month ahead of schedule. Now that we are in the winter months we have noticed a dramatic savings in our energy bill. Our old house was about 1100 square feet and we would pay near $235.00-$250.00 in heating and utility costs in the winter months. After a pretty cold December 2009 our heating and utility costs were at $183.00! Our Cobblestone home is about 1100 square feet larger than our first home.

Dirk’s thirst for knowledge puts him and Cobblestone in a league of their own! I have made referrals to others who are considering building a new home. I also took friends and family to our job site during the construction process and each person was impressed by the quality of construction and material used. If Chris and I decide to build again it would be without a doubt with Cobblestone!
