Our Customer Testimonials

"Wow!  Quality, craftsmanship, and dependability...we found it all when we found Nick's Custom Built Homes..."   Beth

Diamond Lake

"With apologies for the delay, we wanted to formally thank you for your terrific efforts and results on our lake home.  Selecting a builder prior to any in-person meeting and then building remotely (when we were two hours away) complicates things.  It also creates additional important requirements, the most important of which is trust- which you certainly earned.  We also appreciate your post-occupancy follow up on miscellaneous items and your checking in from time to time (that you indicated we can count on years down the road...very few builders have such a long term commitment and we really appreciate that.). As previously mentioned, your skills, craftsmanship and enthusiasm and that of your subs- was evident throughout the building process and resulted in a final product that exceeded our expectations.  As imporantly, you were a pleasure for my wife and our decorator to work with- always flexible, supportive and imformative (and fun!).  You understood from the beginning our desire to make the house a family home for generations, and in our short time with family and friends, it is already a family home.  We appreciate how effectively you manaaged the you parternerd effectively with Helman we could trust you completely to coordinate and manage the process (and wiht us being hours away, that was essential)...and how you became and remain a friend we can count on.  Please do not hesitate to use us as a reference or if any prospective homeowner wants to view your work.  Thanks again and best wishes!"

"I have used Nick's Custom Built Homes on numerous projects and I must say its been a great journey!  He's very time and cost conscious.  Nick always gives me plenty of options and keeps us posted of changes he sees that would be beneficial to the project.  The few times we got into a time crunch Nick rolls up his sleeves and personally will get the job done.  That is so very appreciated.  I will use Nick for our next project!"

"We used Nick's Custom Built Homes to build our lake homes on Diamond Lake in Cassopolis, Michigan.  We were very satisified with his performance.  The quality of work was excellent and his service after the construction was excellent as well.  We found Nick to be very honest and all of his subcontractors were excellent as well.  They have integrity and do excellent work.  We were most impressed with the quality of the craftspeople in all of the subcontractors trades.  We had some unique requirements and they performed "above and beyond" what was expected of them.  His pricing is fair and equitable.  His people and his subcontractors worked safely and with the greatest of quality.  The government agencies that approved the construction work were easy to work with because of Nick's long standing relationship with all of them and this is not to be underestimated in importance when constructing your new home.  We do not freely write such letters, but we would recommend Nick's Custom Built Homes to you for your construction and you may feel free to contact us with any questions."

"Our home is a reflection of who we was very important to build an atmosphere that welcomed all who entered in.  Our story of how we found Nick was of a heavenly plan...we felt our home was secondary and that our new friendships was the primary...what a blessing!  Our home represents true craftsmanship, detail, and natural beauty.  Our home building process was wonderful in every way- We are so very thankful and blessed!"

Grand Beach

"Since we moved into our new home in Grand Beach we have received nothing but compliment after compliment by our neighbors and friends as to its overall style and build, both inside and out.  When we first met Nick what appealed to us was that he was one of the guys both capable of wearing the tool belt and directing the construction project.  He did both and he did both very well.  The home speaks for itself and the fact that it flows and seems like such a simple build, which it was not, was largely due to Nick's commitment to our project and knowledge of the trades and of course, craftsmanship.  Nick worked with us through every challenge and always found a way to bring it all together.  He was excited about building our home and treated it as though it was his own.  Trust us, Nick did a very good job and he will continue to do so, we believe, on all his future projects."

"Nick Miller is a quality builder.  The house he built for us was done on time and on budget.  There were no surprises!  he is a problem solver and when building a custom home that becomes very important.  Any time Nick was asked to do or chnage something it was always done.  You never had to ask twice!"


Granger, Indiana

"Nick's Custom Built Homes built our dream home and we are thrilled with the outcome.  After spending about a year developing our plan, we were nervous when it was time to hand our "baby" over to a builder- Nick Miller and his team, did a fantastic job executing our plan and taking us from paper to real life.  With a close relationship with our architect, Nick knew our plan better than we did.  He was at our job frequently, ensuring that things were being done right.  Nick demands excellence and had a group of subs that respect him and did great work.  Nick led his team by example- always willing to jump in and help.  During the building process we saw Nick work with his team- making decisions, mentoring, collaborating on a tricky situation- always treating others with respect.  Nick's cost plus fee method of building was 100% transparent, we always knew where our money was being spent.  Nick was always willing to look over our numbers and help us to know where we were with our budget.  While Nick as building our house, he had other projects going on- but we never felt like he didn't have a handle on our project- he was always available for a quick question and would make himself available for a meeting or walk through when the need arose- we always felt like a priority..."

The Sanctuary

"Nick inherited our partially constructed new home, our original contractor went broke.  Nick had to assess what had been done to his quality standards, undo many of the constructed and mechancial items, then start over again.  We feel blessed that Nick and his wonderful subcontractors took over and completed our new home to our hopes for aesthetics and quality.  Thanks Nick."

"In retrospect, the process was smooth and enjoyable.  We really appreciate your personal touch, hands on approach, and honesty.  Your subs were excellent and your support team willing to do whatever it took to get the job done.  As the leader, you have put together a great team that builds a great home.  If I may be of assistance to you and yours in the future, please ask."


Eagle Lake

"Superb product!  This is the most well-built solid home I have ever seen.  I am so pleased with the construction quality and was impressed with Nick and every tradesman I uncounted."


Diamond Lake

"While interviewing potential contractors, Nick was open to working with my husband's request to use the cost plus fee method for home construction.  Nick's enthusiasm and his choice of excellent subcontractors has us feeling that we are receiving good value for our construction dollars.  Nick is always available for questions via telephone and will return calls quickly if he is on another call."
