about working with Colson Custom Homes

  • We had an awesome experience working with Colson Custom Homes and their dedicated team. Our home is gorgeous and the attention to detail was beyond what we could’ve imagined. My husband and I both work in real estate and have a good amount of experience with home builders.  We know that Louis, Rodney and their team are the best in the business! It is extremely rare that a builder has actual employees (typically everything is done by sub-contractors) this keeps their prices very competitive, the work completed on time and the quality completely in their control. We also must mention how awesome all their employees are- extremely good at their jobs, but also just really great people. Our expectations were exceeded and we can’t say enough great things! We love our new home!

  • I personally have had 4 homes remodeled with them and two years ago built our own dream house that has an 8 car garage. Yes- my husband loves his garages!!! Thank you for helping us see that possibility with a double lot in the city of Shorewood. The entire Colson Custom Homes team, from start to finish, was incredibly hard working, detail oriented, and did a fantastic job. They even have a great patient attitude with a woman who likes to change her mind. When you build with a smaller custom builder you can make changes along the way that is very very important!! The details in the built ins and my kitchen came out as a magazine cover. The walnut flooring custom fit on site is magical. We have not had to touch the thermostat since we moved in except from heat to cool. My home is always open to have anyone see to start their next dream job with Louis and Rodney Colson. It takes a lot from a real-estate agent to be impressed. I have seen it all...I see why you have so many repeat and happy customers.
