My husband and I were looking at spec homes with our realtor when we met Keith with Design Custom Homes. We liked one of the plans so we met with Keith a couple times to go over the changes we would like to see made and Keith was very helpful in bringing up ideas with us before the plan was formally drawn up. Along the building process, after the cement was poured, we had some concerns in the basement area that we were finishing off and Keith met with us on a Sunday to answer all of our questions and walk us through the changes. When we left that day we were feeling good about the changes Keith came up with. Never did we feel left out in the building process and when concerns came up on our end Keith either met with us right away or answered our questions over the phone. We would definitely recommend Keith and the team at Design Custom Homes! Rolf & Laurie Christianson
There is nothing better than being acknowledged for the work that you put into a project. I do my best to let my subcontractors know when they have done a great job or went above and beyond. Also, I let them know when a customer was happy with their work. It is few and far between that we get accolades from customers past the traditional verbal “thank you”. This message to our electrical subcontractor – Todd Hornbacher at Haywire Electrical located in Columbus, Wisconsin, is refreshing to read: “My name is Deric W and your team has been working on our house out in Blue Mounds WI. It is nearly done and we are excited to be there! I wanted to send a brief note on David Schroud. Dave was absolutely incredible during the building of our house. As you know there are a lot of personalizations with the electrical and wiring needs of a house and David was an absolute professional. He was thoughtful in the design of the electrical plan as well as having great communication with us when issues or decisions arose. It was an absolute pleasure working with him. Shawna and I wanted to send a brief message to you on this positive experience. Please feel free to convey this message to him. We look forward to working again with you as we finish the upstairs and move to completion of our basement.” Warmest regards,Deric
Working with Design Custom Homes was as stress free as they could make such a process be. They were very responsive to requests, helped coordinate with many different vendors, and still continue to support us even after the build. It is a Great Team to work with at Design Custom Homes!

I just wanted to take to a moment to let you know that Jeff went above and beyond yesterday when he came over to paint. Since he had the paint out and with him, he touched up a few additional spots in the house that needed a touch up. I just wanted to make sure that someone was aware and pass on a great experience that I had yesterday. Laura Geasland
We just met with our property tax adjuster and wanted to let you know that he said that our home was one of the nicer ones that he has seen. He apparently sees a lot of houses in Madison and was really impressed with the construction of our home. Just wanted to let you know that we were still extremely happy with the quality of our home and wanted to thank you again for doing a great job! Jessica and Jason Epps Hawk’s Meadow Neighborhood
Since 2000, I have had many opportunities to work with Keith Holmes on building projects both professionally and personally. He built our family home in Savannah Village in 2004, and in 2010, he added a beautiful, custom screen porch to the back of our house. Many of my clients have purchased new construction homes from Keith or have built custom homes with Keith, and I continue to refer home owners to him for new construction and/or remodeling projects. I would certainly describe Keith as hard-working, receptive and responsive, and dedicated to making the customer happy for the long-term.
