The craftsmanship on our new home was excellent. An attention was placed on each detail of our home. The builders suggestions were helpful, and our home was finished in a time frame that had been promised. The experience of building our home from a distance (we lived in Detroit area while the house was build) was positive and stress free.
We had a wonderful experience working with DK Homes. They were professional, kind, easy to work with, and understanding of our time line and situation. Highly recommended.
Had a fantastic experience building our custom home with DK.
If I were to list my favorite things about our experience, the first one would be that Jay allowed us to be creative on our own and he was very good at grabbing a hold of our vision and going with it .
Also, The trim carpenters are fantastic and meticulous and willing to try new things. They also worked very well with our ideas and helped create a very unique look.
Another very important aspect of this process was the way Jay communicated everything before we started, during, and after. If there was ever any question or doubt on something we needed to figure out, there was an immediate conversation or text before that particular process would continue. I feel that saved a lot of headaches and or possible do-overs, which would in turn could have cost us more money.
👍 👍 Double thumbs up from us !
We are now moved in and loving our new home! Our experience with DK Homes has been great, from working with Jay and Schaefer at the beginning of the process, through Ben for finance, Mary for design and selections, Jacob and Scott, and all of the contractors and subcontractors. We watched the progress as it went along and were impressed with the friendliness (even from all the subcontractors we met) and the desire to do quality work--and it is great quality!
Mary was very patient with us as we agonized over finish selections--thanks, Mary! Ben did a great job with keeping the numbers straight. We had no surprises with costs along the way; billings were accurate and easy to follow. Loved the conscientious work of all involved.
Thanks, DK Homes!

Hats off to DK Homes! We have been in our new home for 3 months now and LOVE IT! We sold our previous home extremely fast so we were ready to move in a couple weeks sooner then planned (in mid construction of our lower level completion yet.) Jay was awesome letting us move in early. The craftsmanship and unique features of the home are beautiful. Fell in love with the area and the attention to detail in the new development is what sold us! It was a pleasure working with Jay in helping make the initial plans for the lower level design and with Mary helping with design choices. Mary was always easy to get a hold of with any questions or concerns and she was so flexible with some of the changes I made! Loved working with her! All contractors were courteous and worked hard to get it finished in a timely manor. Final billing of the lower level was as discussed so no surprises. Everyone at DK Homes is laid back and easy to work with ...... THANK YOU!
Big shout out to Schaefer Fraley too! He is also a pleasure to work with and was very helpful in many ways with answering our questions, keeping us updated on progress during closing and moving. Any questions we had we knew we could ask him and he would get answers for us! Just an all around great guy! Thanks Schaefer! :)
DK Homes builds beautiful custom homes ...... We would highly recommend them to anyone!
Stopped in to see if DK Homes would do a small job of re-facing my out dated fireplace. They happily obliged, and led me in the right direction. They provided expert contractors to complete the project, proving no job is too small!

We cannot say enough great things about our experience with DK Homes! DK Homes created and designed the perfect home for our family to enjoy, as our new home now relaxes where the OLD family cottage was. From designing the perfect look of the outside of our home, to the wonderful floor plan with all the finishing touches, our experience was amazing and we love it! Thank you Jay, Ben, Jacob and Mary for being so wonderful to work with and making the building experience so much fun! Also a shout out to all the different contractors they have, all were great and a few even got snacks along the way! I would highly recommend DK Homes to family and friends, as I know they would have the same experience as we did. Thanks again DK!

Our family recently finished a project with DK Homes and have been enjoying the quality and craftsmanship of their work for about 8 months now. This was our second custom build in 4 years, so although by no means experts, we felt prepared for the project. Going into this, based on our first project and what seems to be the “normal pitfalls” of building, we had a natural expectation that we were going to have to stay on top of the budget, schedule, and pay close attention to the details around finish details. During the quoting process, we evaluated 5 different builders, and from the beginning, we quickly identified and caught on that DK had a great formula for success. Jay’s transparency around his quote, how he managed the budget, and ability to foster a great dialogue around our home’s features, flow, construction, costs, challenges, etc. was something that reset our expectations of working with a builder. Throughout the project, we had numerous examples of how DK and their team of contractors worked diligently to ensure that the customer was at the heart of the project, specifically;
- Framing: In addition to being exceptional framers, ensuring everything was true and square, the team identified ways to improve our blueprint by finding creative ways to minimize dead space in the home, and maximize functionality. For our home they identified a great place for a seating bench to put on shoes, an additional linen closet in the masterbath, etc.
- Exterior: The team went the extra mile and researched different decorative materials for our home’s exterior to ensure maximum performance while working within the budget, as well as went to our prior house to look at the engineering of decorative trusses we had and replicated them for our home.
- Finishing: Scott and Bob are phenomenal! Their ability to take a screen shot, or powerpoint picture and make it into reality is remarkable. They asked great questions, stayed close to my wife and I as the project progressed, and delivered a level of quality we were very pleased with.
When building a new home, there will always be bumps along the way, categories that run over and run under budget, but what we learned from our first experience is that it’s how your business partner through the project handles this that makes a huge difference. Bottom line, Jay and the DK team were amazing. They followed our maniacal focus of detail, and we always landed on a resolution that we felt was fair and equitable for both parties.
Although we don’t want to build another house anytime soon, if we had to, DK would be our go-to. I would strongly encourage anyone looking into a new build, or a remodel to sit down with the team at DK and get to know them. During these types of projects, chemistry is everything, and in the end you have ask yourself, “when this is all over, would I want to have these guys over for a BBQ or a drink?” and for us, it’s an easy yes, and we are looking forward to doing just that!
Thank you, Jay, Jacob, Ben, Scott, Bob, and the DK team!
