 I’ve been in the engineering and construction industry for over 40 years.  When Nelson Clayton Homes built our recently completed “forever” home they were the perfect example of the right way to do residential construction.  I was at my home’s jobsite every few days and was able to see progress  and get firsthand feedback from all the workers.  Trade sub-contractors in the commercial sector provide bids to, and work for, many general contractors.  Nelson’s subs work almost exclusively for him in a mutual admiration and trust relationship.  He even uses the same material suppliers and installers on each build.  He trusts they’ll do great work and to interact cooperatively with each other, and they all enjoy working with him.  It was this level of trust and admiration among the trades that led to a spectacular finished product at a fair and competitive price.  Nelson and his people are all willing to take the time to explain the ongoing process to the Homeowner and family, in either complex technical terms or plain, understandable language, as appropriate.  The quality of workmanship and attention to detail are second to none.  The installer of our shutters and blinds subsequent to completion of Nelson’s work mentioned that in his 20 years of this work he had never seen a house whose windows and frames measured so square and plumb.  In the end we feel as though Nelson and his entire team, both his direct staff and sub-contractors,  are part of our extended family.  If it were not for COVID we’d invite them all over for a celebration and probably have them back over and over in the future!

 Nelson, it's been 10 years since you built our home in 

 English Turn.  Lots has happened since that time and 

 I'm looking to buy/or build another home something

 not as large as I have now, but nice.  Of course,

 when I started thinking where to turn, you came to

 mind.  There is none that can beat your quality,

 attention and professionalism.  You truly care about

 your clients.        Best New Year, Yolanda

      Nelson built our home, then several years later when we needed more space, built our addition.

 Nelson and his staff are a pleasure to work with; honest, friendly, hardworking, and fair.
      When we decided to build our first home, we were young, nervous, and knew next to nothing 

 about the process, but they were patient and put up with our unending questions, concerns, etc.  

 during the design and construction phases. We felt comfortable working with them from the

 moment  we met and in the end they delivered a beautiful home within our budget, which we are

 thrilled to  live in to this day.
       Later, they would put the same effort and attention to detail into a small project -- our addition

 -- that they would to their larger projects, which to me is great proof of the respect they have for

 their  customers.  Jesse was onsite constantly on our little project even though I know they were j

 juggling a number of other massive jobs at the same time.
