We love our home and could not have asked anybody else to design and create an affordable home. They came up with the ideal house plan for our family, and we thank God for Buffum Builders. They built us the best lasting home that we could stay in for many years to come.

Moving here has been wonderful! We are so blessed to have such a beautiful place to call our own. I have cooked more this week in our BEAUTIFUL new kitchen than I have in the past year! A huge thank you to Josh and Norm at Buffum Homes for making the process as smooth as possible and incorporating everything we wanted. We couldn't be happier!

Words do not come close to telling you 'thanks' for all you have done for our family. Our home is beautiful. Our neighborhood is amazing. Thank you, thank you, thank you! We pray that God will continue to bless your business. You have done much for us and we are forever grateful.
Tim & Karen K.
We LOVE our house! We couldn't be more pleased! We wanted to let you know what an amazing group of people you have on your team. Everyone was so polite, friendly, and hard-working. We also loved the Christian attitude that was very evident. We can't say enough nice things about you all!!!

In a world where customer service is usually non-existent, we found the opposite to be true of Buffum Builders. Our family recently moved to the area from out of state and we instantly fell in love with our new home! After looking at multiple newly constructed homes in the same price range, none of them compared in quality to the one we found!

As an independent energy inspector I'm impressed with the attention to detail paid in every facet of construction; from air sealing to insulation installation quality. These folks care about the things that consumers typically cannot see.
