Client Testimonials

Excellent Builder
“You are an excellent builder. We are both thrilled with the house you built for us. You created a house which reflects exactly what we wanted. It is ‘home’ to us. At the risk of being effusive, your professional experience, knowledge, and your creativity made our building process a delight. You always listened carefully, and worked hard to incorporate our ideas into the home. Never once did we feel overwhelmed. You were always there to guide and walk through-and explain in layman’s terms -what needed to be accomplished to create the look we wanted. Your skill in hiring excellent crews to build our home was reassuring. Every single person who worked on our home was experienced and worked at 100% effort. Thank you.”

Devoted Team
To Whom This May Concern:We all cared enough about each other to accomplish the dream of our lifetime. Kelly Cole, our builder, translated this dream with his insight, spirit, and his devoted team. With only one visit, it was all done long distance, and there is not one thing I would change.

Expertise and Attention to Details
“We love the house in fact I’m spending so much time nesting I don’t check my emails as often as I should. Most of the neighbors have come over for a tour. Your expertise and attention to details is so apparent. Gary has been such a help to us. It’s the little things like the handrail he put up in the garage after I broke my leg. Kelly you have made our only experience at building a house a joy and we will not be moving ever. Thanks for everything. We feel that we found the best builder for our log home and made special friends as a bonus.”

Love the way the home turned out
“I cannot adequately express what a pleasure it has been for us to work with someone of your talent, commitment and integrity. As you know, we relied heavily upon your judgment on so many of the decisions, and it served us very well. We truly love the way the home turned out, which is the ultimate reward ….”

Attention to the smallest details
Now that we have settled into our Deerwood constructed log home in Hawk Springs we want to pause and commend those persons who were responsible for designing, building, and finishing this beautiful house.

Clearly, your central administration in Centennial should be recognized for the clear, efficient, and accurate portrayal of the design and cost of the home as well as for the fiscal impact of changes which occurred throughout construction. Furthermore, great accolades should be given to those persons on the site who were responsible for constructing and finishing this log home. Chris Shannon, and his crew Eric Voight, Bryan Shoemaker, and Chad Koske deserve specific recognition for the individual craftsmanship which has made this home “the talk of Goshen County.” Attention to the smallest details of the interior finishing and wood crafting unique items such as the staircase, bookshelves, towel racks, cabinet doors, and toilet paper holders have carried the outstanding characteristics of the outside shell to the very interior of each room.

The ability of Chris Shannon to maintain rapport with us throughout the construction process eased the concerns which accompany the construction of every new home. The positive “can do” attitude that was expressed toward our request for changes made the construction process pleasant and enjoyable. We owe much to Chris and his crew for building a beautiful home and for creating a unique, valuable asset for this Wyoming community.

Best regards to you and the entire Deerwood family.

True Craftsman
Dear Everyone at Deerwood Homes,

Thank you so much for the lovely arrangement of silk flowers – they are sitting in the bookshelf in the living room and will always be pretty.

We absolutely adore the work you did on this house – it is 100% prettier and more appealing than when you started, and I love coming here as it is so comfortable. Not only are you true craftsmen, but you obviously enjoy what you do – making this a real home!!

Thanks again for the flowers & we hope to see you all again (not working on the house)!

The quality of craftsmanship and knowledge… is unsurpassed
To whom it may concern;

In the course of my twenty-five years in architectural practice, I have designed many log structures. I have looked for quality log crafters throughout this country and Canada, and have worked with many different companies.

For the last few years, I have worked with Kelly Cole of Deerwood Log Homes as often as possible. I find that the quality of craftsmanship and knowledge of structure from Deerwood Log Homes is unsurpassed.

I wholeheartedly recommend Deerwood Log Homes and Kelly Cole without hesitation.

If I can answer any questions, or if you would like to discuss this personally, do not hesitate to call me.
