Phil Carpenter Custom Homes

How often do we actually feel like we got what we paid for? Not too often unfortunately. It's rare these days to find a company or a person to go the extra mile to insure a quality product but we found just that with Phil Carpenter. The house we purchased from him is not only beautiful in design but solidly built and filled with quality products not limited to floors, windows and cabinetry. The attention to detail he puts into his building projects is unlike those found in the larger builders, mass produced homes.

Since our purchase, we have had Phil come and add some windows to our family room and install a beautiful backsplash and lighting in the kitchen which has added a lovely ambiance. We are planning on having him come back and finish our basement in the not-to-distant future.

We definitely got what we paid for and so much more. It's been a pleasure to work with Phil, truly an unexpected surprise.

My wife and I have been involved with the building of three homes and our best experience has been with Philip Carpenter. Phil builds a true top quality "custom" home just the way we wanted it instead of a cheap "mass produced" home that many contractors build.

Phil was willing to let us design and build the house we wanted from start to finish, but was very willing to give advice whenever it was asked of him. Probably the thing that impressed me the most is the way Phil would allow us to make minor changes even after the construction began without charging outrageous fees.

My wife, along with many friends and family, was very skeptical of the completion date. Three and a half months to build a house does seem to be a short time. The amazing thing is that it was completed and we moved in 2 weeks ahead of schedule. I think that this is due to Phil's great attention to detail and his great working relationship with all of the contractors that work with him.

Without a doubt when we are ready to build our next home Philip Carpenter will be the contractor of our choice.

We loved our builder... Phil Carpenter Custom Homes! Not everyone could say that about their builder! Surely not during the construction process of a new home or upon completion of their home.

If you are looking for a laid back, honest, hard working, skilled carpenter, and most of all reliable builder; Phil Carpenter is the guy you want to build your new home. He will be by your side every step of the way. Phil will create a construction schedule and your new home will be complete on the date he has promised.

Thank you Phil Carpenter! We love our home!

In the summer of 2008, Phil Carpenter built an almost 800 square foot addition on our home. The addition included a mudroom, laundry room, half bath, an open great room as well as a completely remodeled kitchen. In all honesty, it was difficult at times living in our home with all the renovations going on but looking back it was certainly worth the temporary discomfort. Phil was extremely helpful in all aspects of this project. He offered many innovative ideas which improved the efficiency and appearance of our home. For example, he built a custom bench with shelving and hooks in our new mudroom. He helped update and remodel my formerly outdated kitchen with all new cabinets and beautiful granite countertops. Cooking is actually more enjoyable in a well designed functional kitchen!

Phil is extremely organized--he gave us a handout which included a detailed time schedule on when and what work was being done. We had no problems with any of subcontractors that worked on addition. It has been two years since the completion of the addition on our home and we are still very pleased with the quality of the workmanship. As a family, we now spend most of our time in the addition part of our home. It was definitely a worthwhile investment.
