We cannot say enough positive things about our experience working with EDK Design-Build - specifically with Elmer and Allison. From our initial conversations with Elmer, we were impressed with his straightforward manner and attention to detail. He also did a great job listening and learning about what we wanted in our new house and bringing that to the home design. Elmer brought a level of experience to the table that was an invaluable asset throughout our home-building process. Both he and Allison, his assistant, have superb organizational and planning skills. Their attention to detail exceeded our admittedly high expectations. In the end, we could not be more pleased with our beautiful forever-home.

Eric and his team did a terrific job designing and implementing a major renovation to our home. Not only was the job completed with experienced skill, his consideration of our needs - along the way- was always gracious and accommodating. The standard of excellence was met and went way beyond!


Building a home can be a challenging journey. My wife and I are very thankful we chose EDK and Elmer Dixon to build our dream home. We had a pretty good plan before engaging Elmer. Our daughter who does architectural home design had spent many hours with us getting the layout just right. From there, Elmer picked up the ball and in just over 8 months made our dream home a reality.

There were challenges in building a home in the months following Covid. Many construction items were in short supply. Elmer was aware of the long lead times and strongly encouraged us to visit vendors and select items expeditiously. Thankfully Elmer’s push to nail down selections early resulted in timely arrival of critical path items to the job site. Elmer was also on top of his subcontractors insuring they came and completed their jobs in a timely manner. These were major factors in completing construction on a large home not on schedule, but three weeks ahead of the target date.

The result is a home that shows great craftsmanship in all areas. This is our sixth home and is the best in both construction and finish detail. Elmer is uncompromising in his pursuit of quality, and it shows throughout the home. We are very blessed to have had him lead this effort.

In the end we affirm this truth: We do not desire to go through construction of a new home anytime soon, but if we did, there is certainty we would select EDK and Elmer Dixon to lead the way. In all aspects they showed strong dedication to their clients and a pursuit of excellence in their craft.

I had an excellent experience with Eric on our home construction. He always knew the subs, which were excellent, and he was very good at keeping things lined up and moving in a timely manner. He is easy to get along with and very congenial.


Our experience with Eric was absolutely amazing. Him listening to what we wanted coupled with his keen attention to detail, resulted in our beautiful family home. We would build with Eric again.


Choosing EDK Design Build was one of the best decisions we ever made. From the first meeting with Elmer and through the whole process the communication was there. They listened to our vision and made suggestions when we needed it. The quality of work, communication, and professionalism is why we are telling everyone we know about them. We could not be more thrilled with our dream home!
