We are very pleased with our decision to have Deffenbaugh Homes build our custom home. Their attention to detail, craftsmanship and expertise surpassed our expectations. The custom barn door, hand-crafted black walnut bar counters and interior/exterior barrel ceilings are a only a few of our favorite details of our Deffenbaugh home. We are pleased with our experience, from start to finish, and would highly recommend Deffenbaugh Homes to anyone interested in building a custom home!
Deffenbaugh Homes is the general contractor I am using to build a new home. They have been extremely helpful and creative in the process, they ask my opinions and want my input. They have helped me from the initial lot selection, design of the home to take advantage of various aspects of the lot, and guided me in selection of finishes and appliances. They use only the best sub-contractors and demand quality in all aspects of the work from their sub-contractors. They communicate with me on a weekly basis to keep be abreast of the progress. They have given me time to make selections of finishes and offer various options. I am kept informed about budget and any deviations from it, as well as the reason for any deviation. They have been very professional with extensive knowledge and expertise in the home building industry. I would not hesitate to recommend them for anyone interested in building a new home.
Our project started with approximately a 2,000 sq. ft lower level area. We envisioned having an area to entertain with a bar, wine room, family room, game area and separate office space. With the professional help and guidance of Dudley Deffenbaugh and his crew, we were able to accomplish exactly what we wanted. Plans were outlined, a project quote was given, along with individual actual or approximate costs for each construction item. The experienced craftsmen of Dudley's crew were able to add unique touches to our project, i.e., hand crafted black walnut counter for the bar and wine room , along with a custom black walnut door going into the wine room. The wine room was constructed with natural stone inside and out with a 6' x 8 1/2' clear glass viewing area into the wine room from the bar. They were always willing to listen to our concerns, attention to detail was important and the project was completed to our complete satisfaction.
We hired Deffenbaugh Homes in 2004 to build our home and were very pleased with the result. After 11 years of living in it with very little repair work, we decided to downsize. In the selling process, the Deffenbaugh name carried a lot of weight and we were able to sell in under a month for full price.
We were first introduced to the Deffenbaugh Homes Team for the construction of a new home in 2003. Their creativity, eye for new design and meticulous work were what attracted us to this firm for the design and building of our current home. The team was fun to work with throughout the project, in fact, we became friends through the process. Recently, we found ourselves in need of an update and remodel and we notified the Deffenbaugh Homes Team for their design and construction help. The recent process was again done with the same meticulous detailed work. I have and will again recommend this team to anyone!
We could not be more pleased with our home building experience with Deffenbaugh Homes. Dudley Deffenbaugh not only builds a quality product, but truly cares and stands behind his work. Starting from the initial team meeting to our current walk through, the Deffenbaugh team continues to listen to our wants and needs attentively. So I know, the day we walk in our final home – it will be our dream home.
