Our Clients Say It Best

  • Steve & Denise Lutsky:
    "We have used this service from start to finish. Chance and Duane are honest and forthright. They deliver what they promise. I will use them again when I build my parent's home. Chance and Duane work hard to replace subcontractors who fail to perform or meet their obligations."
  • Alison & Robert Creech:
    "If you are looking to have control over your home-building experience with professionals to guide you, UBuildIt is for you! Kayla, Chance, and Duane were spot-on with their instruction and guidance. If they did not have the answer to your questions, they found it. We could not have built OUR custom-designed home on our land without them. It took ten months from start to finish."
