Jeff Barnes has built my last two homes, the most recent one under his company Cedar Hill Custom Homes.  Both of these projects were relatively large and the most recent project was about 19,000 square feet. 

I cannot imagine having a better builder in terms of knowledge, skill and most important, integrity.  Jeff does not bluff on issues.  If he does not have an answer he will tell you he has no idea and then his approach is to figure it out.  When problems arise (and they will) my experience has been for Jeff to acknowledge the issue and then focus on how to resolve the problem in a transparent and collaborative manner.  This is refreshing from the standard approach by lesser builders of denying the existence, or just covering up, problems, errors or mistakes. 

I also had the opportunity to observe Jeff interact with his subcontractors.  Jeff is tough, but fair.  During the building process you get a lot of face time with these skilled trades without the builder present.  The vast majority of these subs told me that Jeff Barnes is by far their favorite builder to work for in terms of direction, support and fairness. 

Count yourself very fortunate if Jeff Barnes/Cedar Hill Custom Homes agrees to build your home.

Working with Jeff Barnes of Cedar Hill Custom Homes was a terrific experience.  As a builder, Jeff took into consideration our wants and needs.  He had creative ideas and was able to adapt as circumstances changed.   We felt nothing was overlooked.  His work was meticulous and detail oriented and he knew what it took to build a quality custom home. 


We think he is the best of two worlds, a mechanic and an artist.  He builds relationships of trust and understanding, both with his crews and clients.   For us, the net result was a quality home with fine finishes. 


Building our house with Cedar Hill Custom Homes was a thoroughly enjoyable experience and wse are happy living in our new home

My husband and I worked with Jeff on the construction of our home and had a great experience. So when it came time to build an addition onto our house, we did not consider anyone else. Jeff has what it takes to get the job done right; experience, work ethic, attention to detail, ability to stay on budget and great customer service.

Working with Cedar Hill has been an incredibly enjoyable experience. We had an idea of what we wanted the renovations to look like. Jeff's experience and attention to detail took our ideas to another level. He made an effort to really understand us, our lifestyle and what we wanted. He helped us optimize our budget and gave us more than we were expecting. Jeff and his team are very responsive and did not settle for mediocre – they bring their best! The end result is better than our dream - more than we imagined and exactly what we wanted. We love our beautiful new home.
