Hiring a General Contractor with a working knowledge of the various trades is critical to ensure that the end product is of a quality and standard that will endure the test of time. Since remodeling his first home (a mid-nineteenth century carriage house in Stouchsburg, PA) in 1993, Steve Streeter developed an interest in learning the various construction trades. Today, Steve has demonstrated a well-rounded working knowledge of every aspect of custom home new construction and renovation, from architectural design to the finishing details. With a background in the fine arts, Steve has also developed a keen eye for creating efficient living spaces and finishes that are both functional and aesthetic.

But in today's uncertain real estate market, it is also essential to hire a General Contractor with an established track record of building homes at budget and on schedule. During the peak days of easy credit and speculation, Steve maintained a very conservative, disciplined approach to home building that resulted in consistent project success. In a word, the success of a custom home project today is largely about value engineering: delivering the highest quality at the best possible price. Building with Artisan Custom Homes ensures the success and value of your project.

Living in Southern Utah

After researching and visiting Sedona, AZ, Durango, CO, Santa Fe, NM, and several other notable locations around the Southwest in 2003, Steve and his wife Kristeen decided that there was no place quite as diverse and rich in natural beauty as Southern Utah. If you like the jaw dropping red rock scenery of Sedona, then St. George and nearby Snow Canyon State Park or Zion National Park are minutes away. Or if you prefer a higher elevation with pinion and cedar trees and the crisp mountain air similar to Santa Fe, Dammeron Valley and Pinion Hills are just a 15 minute drive North.

Outdoor recreation is abundant with hundreds of miles of easily accessible hiking, biking and ATV trails. St. George is home to the annual St. George Marathon, the Huntsman Senior Games, the Ironman Triathlon, as well as several other sporting events.

There are two four year college campuses in Southern Utah: Dixie College in St. George (with a current annual resident tuition of approximately $2700) and Southern Utah University in Cedar City.
