What Our Clients Are Saying...

"Very Impressed"

Mike and Judy put together a package for us including getting the drawings and plans prepared and getting all of the materials put together. The drawings and plans were spot on and the City of Newcastle had very little to comment on before approving them. The materials package was estimated just right. The materials were top notch. Our builder was very impressed by how well the materials package was thought through and put together - so were we. Every step of the way, we were given advice that we later found to be on the mark. Cedar Homes of Washington's involvement in our project technically could have ended as soon as the materials package was delivered. Nevertheless, Mike and Judy continued to check in on us all the way through the end of the project. We enjoyed working with Mike and Judy and wholeheartedly recommend them to others.
