"We selected Sommer & Swartzentruber to build our "dream home" after interviewing and receiving pricing from two other builders. This was the first home we had ever built and had heard many horror stories relating to working with builders during construction. We found Gerald and Sommer & Swartzentruber's employees to be very easy to work with and very responsive to correcting any problems encountered during construction. Our building experience was very enjoyable and we have received many compliments on the quality of the construction. We would not hesitate to recommend Sommer & Swartzentruber to anyone looking to build a new home.

"I had built two homes before and even though I was interested in new construction again I was reluctant to relive the hassles I had experienced in the past. Gerald and the rest of the Sommer and Swartzentruber staff made the process painless and relatively simple. Their attention to detail and quality of the finished product made me glad I did."


"Dear LuAnn and Gerald,

We wanted to let you know how delighted we are with our new home now that we have lived here for more than a month. We are still marveling at the openness and subtle elegance of the house – the exact feeling we were hoping to achieve. We continue to be impressed with the numerous features and the quality of the craftsmanship evident throughout. 

Our Sommer and Swartzentruber experience was beyond our expectations. We started with a design we loved and had it customized to our needs. 

You and your team accommodated each of our requests for customization. During the whole process we received the attention as if we were your only clients. 

We would recommend Sommer and Swartzentruber, with pride, to anyone seeking a general contractor. We wish you continued success as you business grows in the future."
