The Lake House


"Paul did a wonderful job building our lake house. He and his team were  efficient and provided the highest quality product across the board -  materials and especially workmanship. His attention to detail and the ideas he brought to the project were great. His custom cabinets were especially impressive.
In addition; his professional manner,  handling of everything and his service after the completion is exemplary. I have built 3 different houses. This was by far my best experience.
I give him my highest recommendation. He has since done work for friends and they had the same experience.
Cannot go wrong hiring Paul!"

Tom C.  

Coloma Home


"Caron Custom Homes built a beautiful home for me in Coloma. The  experience exceeded my expectations as the project was delivered on time  and on budget. In addition, the experience was actually enjoyable. Paul is well organized, responsive, and being local, involved daily and  available even on short notice. Paul's tradesmen are true professionals,  genuinely care about quality and offered suggestions throughout the  process which enhanced the home. As I frequently made changes to the  scope of work, I was notified of the overall impact relating to cost and  schedule; the costs were reasonable and the impact on the schedule was  minimal.  I lived out of state during construction and the weekly photos  and updates were appreciated. 

Thank you Paul, I wish you continued  success!"
