At last we were ready to retire and move from California to Utah to build our dream home. After receiving referrals, vetting and ultimately hiring a builder, unfortunately, he turned out to be the most dishonest, unskilled, incompetent and unethical person to ever hold a Utah contractor's license. After 12 months of painfully slow progress, countless oversights and screw-ups, numerous excuses, and way too many disappointments and sleepless nights for us, we fired the builder. Now winter was fast approaching and we were left hanging with an unfinished house with an incomplete roof, no stucco, and no weathertight exterior. We were devastated, disillusioned and living our worst nightmare. Who would be willing to take on this job?

The next day, completely by chance, we were introduced to Steve Streeter, owner of Artisan Custom Homes. After carefully assessing our situation and explaining to us in detail his estimate and course of action, we agreed to hire Steve to complete the construction of our home. Steve and Kristeen Streeter immediately proved to be two of the hardest working people we've ever met. Steve was very professional and thorough as he determined all the remedial work that was required before he could move forward.

Over the next several weeks we saw more progress on our home than we had in the prior 6 months. We were impressed with Steve's orderliness, his strategy and his attention to every detail. More importantly, he was very resourceful and worked diligently to find the most reasonable prices for high quality materials and labor to keep costs down and on budget wherever possible. He showed up daily whether he was working himself or supervising subs. We received pictures and updates regularly and any bump in the road was resolved efficiently and competently. He was able to offer valuable and insightful advice and his knowledge in so many different facets of the job was priceless. We were impressed with his execution of the entire project. We would highly recommend Steve Streeter, Artisan Custom Homes, to anyone looking for a top-notch, professional builder--he was truly able to turn our worst nightmare into our dream home.

Steve Streeter, representing Artisan Custom Homes, has been very helpful in providing constructive suggestions to enable us to choose the best building lot in southern Utah.
As we are moving through the design phase of construction, Steve has provided a high knowledge of local building codes, home owner association requirements, building permit processes, building materials, suppliers, costs, and house design trends.
He also has an artful eye for current building design that is expressed in his recent building projects. Careful consideration is given to the customer’s questions and he works to thoroughly understand the owner’s expectations.
Steve also strives to identify and communicate building issues that might develop. I would recommend Steve to future customers for lot and house planning, design, and construction.

Dear Steve
I would like to thank you and Artisan Custom Homes for the construction of our dream home in Entrada.
My husband and I are both ecstatic with the workmanship and detail put in and have received many positive comments.
Honestly, the thought of ever having to look for or build a new home sounds unappealing because I know any other home would pale in comparison.
Again, we thank you for your craftsmanship and efforts on our behalf.
All the best

I hired Artisan for a major remodel and room addition.
Not only did the room addition come together well, but I am now glad to live in what feels like a completely new home on the same old piece of land.
What an amazing job!!!
