Custom Homes


We at Lake Effect Builders believe that every house should be as unique as the individual(s) that will call it home. We enjoy getting to know our clients, listening to their needs and the process of helping them build a custom home.

What a Client Says:

I have heard stories over the years about other people's nightmare experiences with building a house. So I had some concern about starting a large and innovative project while living in another state. After settling on the design plan, I met with Leo and Dana. I was impressed with their enthusiasm for an unconventional but energy efficient structure that would replace our old family cabin.

The old cabin was only seasonal, old, and required much maintenance. Leo and Dana were extremely sensitive to the idea of salvaging material from the old building to make it part of the new one.

Through the building process, our communication has been phenomenal, and the willingness to work through all the complexities of the project has engendered a trust and friendship unlike most people's experience.

The work ethic, the quality of workmanship, and attention to detail produce a pride I am happy to endorse to the fullest.

I could expand much further, and would be honored to speak with anyone considering Lake Effect Builders as their contractor.
