I highly recommend Galena Builders/Contemporary Homes to anyone starting the process of building a home. They were the contractors/builders who built our large, complex home in the Galena Territory.
The quality of their work is first rate. The quality of their work is in part what made our home a feature in home magazines and building supply brochures. They are a responsive, reliable and efficient team that is very easy to work with. Once our home was built, they have proven to be "johnny on the spot" in handling routine maintenance as well.
Do yourself a favor and choose this team to build your home. --- Gary Seamans

You are a "Master Builder" and a man of honesty and integrity. --- Angela and Cordell Willis

It's always a pleasure to do business with someone who shares my attitude about business.
We would like to tell everyone that we had the best builder in The Territory --- Don and Carol Fouts

We interviewed several contractors and we were reasonably sure we had made the best choice in Contemporary Homes. With our home completed on schedule, largely within budget and to our complete satisfaction, we know we made the best choice.
--- Dick Brennan

We both feel you were always honest, straightforward, and most of all, one who wanted to please your client --- Jim and Beverly Ann Berry

When we went looking for a builder to construct our dream home, we really hit the jackpot. Dave Chapin of Contemporary Homes understood what we wanted to build and provided the support we needed to get our home built.
In the past we had a couple of bad experiences with builders. It wasn't long before we found out that when working with Dave, a handshake would be all that was necessary.
In the past decade, we have said time and time again that we were very lucky to find a builder of Dave Chapin's integrity.
Ellen and I would strongly encourage folks to consider Dave when choosing to build in the Tri-State region.  
---Jerry Bolles and Ellen Logan

We would strongly recommend Dave Chapin of Contemporary Homes as an excellent general contractor. He is an honest, talented and conscientious builder with skillful craftsmen who take obvious pride in their work.
--- Tony and Joan Peressini

Having built several homes, we have a basis for comparison.
Dave Chapin is both cost-conscious and meticulous with castles or cottages.
 A builder who becomes a friend.
 --- Diane and Ed Fitzpatrick

As the director of golf at eagle ridge from 1987-1999 I witnessed Contemporary Homes build numerous custom homes for many of my customers,
myself included. I was always impressed with the quality, customer service and attention to detail that was evident with every project Dave Chapin took
He and his crew are professional in every aspect from design through finished product and beyond.  
--- John Schlaman

I have known Dave Chapin since our acquisition of Eagle Ridge and he has worked with the resort on several projects. He is a builder with a solid reputation. Aside from his professional credentials, you can rely on his honesty and integrity.
