I moved to Castle Pines about 1 ½ years ago and secured the services of Sterling Building and Design primarily since Woody Howarth shared our vision of a mountain residence stuck in the middle of the beautiful pine trees that highlight our community. Woody built our dream home on time and on budget. It has exceeded our lofty standards for quality and comfort. What impressed me the most was Woody’s attention to detail and responsiveness. He was personally involved with every step in the building process including explaining every detail of each construction phase. He was outstanding and I would recommend him strongly.”

Woody Howarth, President of Sterling Building & Design, has done a significant amount of work for me in my home. We were drawn to Woody after seeing a number of his custom homes in the Village. He designed and remodeled my entire lower basement level and the outcome was terrific. He brought innovative design, kept an eye on creative ways to stretch the budget and delivered a complex project on time. He also took on a difficult project regarding my deck. He demolished the existing deck and completely rebuilt an entirely new structure on two levels under a tight budget and some difficult terrain in our back yard.He has always seemed to build strong relationships with his customers, resulting in a high degree of loyalty. We have a strong trust and belief in his work. He has been a strong steward of our interests and operated like a partner.”

This is a short story of how Sterling Building and Design has impacted my life.In one of my lowest points after our home fire here in Castle Pines there was a bright moment. It was the third day after the fire which started on April 29, 2009 and things were not very much fun. Our insurance company was on the scene and informed us we needed to find a builder within the next week. I thought that they were out of their minds. The shock was still so new as there had been no rehearsal for this bad experience. During my day working with the insurance agent my husband requested I leave with a neighbor who also was a home builder in the area to view his homes that he build in Castle Pines Village. This was not an idea that I agreed with but went.After spending three hours with Woody Howarth that day I was sure this was now going to bea much better outcome. I could now move forward. Due to Woody’s expertise and unendingenergy I found the whole process enjoying and wonderful. There was no need for any counseling after such a terrible experience due to finding a very confident but also someone who was very willing to lead and work with my needs. Woody Howarth was a stranger before April 29, 2009 but now I would trust him as a builder and a honest human being. There are not enough words without sounding redundant about my trust and respect for Woody Howarth. Many people might have not been so forthright and taken advantage of us in our difficult time. He runs a very tight ship and all his sub contractors we found to be just as professional and of high standards as was and is Woody Howarth.Woody Howarth and Sterling Building and Design guided us through the demolition, architecture and planning, finishing touches and suppliers and many more aspect during this fast track but high quality building process. It was great to see everyone’s willingness to please and provide very high standards of workmanship. Our home turned into much more than a project for everyone as they all showed their genuine care and pride in everything that they did for us.I invite you to come to our home and see for yourselves the reason my feelings are so positive. My family and friends have stated their awe of the quality and attractiveness of our 4500 square foot patio home. Woody Howarth built our home after insurance issue, inspections, permits and finally demolition in four months time. It was beyond our wildest dreams to be out of our rental and finally feel that we had a real home again.My highest recommendation for Sterling Building and Design and Woody Howarth. Woody truly has a special gift and talent as an organized, honest home builder and professional.”

Just a short note to let you know that you couldn’t hire a better builder than Sterling Building and Design! He is the builder who redid our home after the fire in April 2009. I cannot tell you how professionally, expediently, and how on time he was. I have the greatest confidence in Woody as a builder and as a person. He follows through on anything and everything he promises. His attention to detail in a better than timely manner is almost unbelievable.”

I have wanted to take a few minutes to send along a very personal thanks for your work in The Retreat. As the person that began the project a year earlier, I particularly appreciate your customer service and business-like approach to your work.Based upon availability of funds, I thought we would have to coordinate the project ourselves. I spent months trying to identify contractors needed to build a new pool. I spent hours trying to contact different contractors, trying to meet them to review the project, and trying to get bids from those that actually came. As I reported in our March Board meeting, I gave up for the season thinking there was no way to pull it off.Then, a neighbor found you! You set an appointment to meet us. You came. You professionally provided a timely bid that was within our resources. I thought we could never afford the nice recreation center you described. I had a bid for a commercial rough-face cinder block retaining wall. We had a bid from another commercial builder and I thought that you could never match it, but you did. When we first spoke, you said I would be surprised what you could build a wall for. I was. I am. Money aside the rock wall you built is beyond comparison to the cinder block wall I thought we would have to see.You worked with us to finalize our agreement. While not guaranteed, you actually thought you could pull it off for us to replace the retaining wall, deck and pool and open for Memorial Day. I held my breath bracing for problems.We signed a contract in the rain while we were under a winter storm warning. I started thinking how to explain a late opening based upon the size of the project and weather conditions. I watched daily as the work progressed and kept holding my breath. You would say you were on track to finish timely. I could not believe you. We had a couple of minor issues arise as things progressed. I braced for the worst, but you just said you would take care of them. The project went on. Unbelievably, I was able to exhale at the end of the project with a beautiful new pool — on budget, and a day ahead of schedule!I appreciate your attention to detail from beginning to end. Our community now enjoys a beautiful new pool, deck, and retaining wall with features I did not think we would be able to afford.You also said you wanted to exceed my expectations. You have in several ways.”

We contracted with Sterling Custom Homes, Inc., to do a tear down on an older house we had purchased and to build us a new house on that site. Woody Howarth, the owner of that company undertook that project and completed the project in a very timely and professional manner. We were more than satisfied with the work he did and have recommended him to many other individuals who planned to either build a house or have one remodeled. Woody Howarth took great pride in his work and if a situation arose and we contacted him about the problem, he contacted us immediately and resolved that issue in a very timely manner.With the stress of building a residence, this was very reassuring to us. He used very competent employees who were professional and skilled in their assigned functions. The materials he used were of the highest quality and he personally took the time to accompany us and help us choose countertops, cabinets, doors and other items from different manufacturers in the area. We have resided in the house for approximately 3 years now and we are very pleased with the construction of the house. We have had numerous compliments on the house. We have had no problems with the construction of the house. When we have had questions concerning the house we have contacted Woody and he has promptly returned our calls and answered our questions to our satisfaction. We are more than pleased with the construction of our residence by Sterling Custom Homes, Inc. and should we ever decide to build another home we would have Sterling Custom Homes build it.”

Woody- just had to say thanks again for a great home building experience. This has been a great real estate transaction from the get-go…. but then yesterday, I sent an inspection report to you toward the end of the day in preparation for our walk-through this morning. I honestly didn’t expect the stellar level of response from you today.  At 9:30 a.m. today,  you had a crew of subs and vendors show up and were taking care of all things on that report. It was really amazing. Magical! In fact, it totally made my day considering I had two of these appointments back-to-back.   I just don’t see that level of response from every builder. I am so appreciate for everything about you and your team, including courtesy, professionalism, care, competence, service and great communication.  I love that your crew looks put together, that your trucks are clean, that your job sites are clean, that your level of construction and craftsmanship is fantastic, that your attention to detail is excellent, and that this home was in overall great condition today.  I really appreciate the way your superintendent has treated my clients too. He’s a keeper!  I got what I wanted too………..appreciative clients! I’ve known them for almost 20 years. They described their wish list early on to me, and this home got it all, so thank you. My clients will be very happy in this home for many years to come.

Great end product, Woody…… and a great customer service experience from Sterling Homes. Thank you. You’re the best.
