One of the main purposes in establishing MasterCraft Design & Build was to eliminate the lack of trust that exists in the homebuilding industry. One consistent theme stands out in all of my conversations with potential customers. They are hesitant to employ a general contractor because they are not allowed to see the “true” cost of construction. They would be more interested in upgrading their selections if they knew that the contractor wasn’t constantly inflating the costs of their products. Often, the “inflated” contractor cost makes the upgrades, out of the reach for many homebuyers.
At MasterCraft Design & Build, we are bold and upfront with our costs. We eliminate one of the major stresses of building by allowing you to see all aspects of our pricing, from our general conditions and subcontractor costs all the way to our overhead and profit. You can feel free to question our costs at anytime.
We will give you the opportunity to compare pricing from different manufacturers on the many products in your house. From windows to flooring and everything in between, you are free to shop the many different brands and see how the pricing will affect the final house cost. This puts the final decision making process in your hands instead of ours. You can feel comfortable that you are getting the maximum return for your hard earned dollars.
We also welcome you to visit with any of our suppliers on your own. Our suppliers will provide you with the same contractor cost that we pay, without any added markups or “hidden fees”. We know that your free time is valuable and this system allows you to visit the showroom one time and make on the spot decisions without making return trips to find out actual costs.
"To turn my childhood home into our family's dream home, we needed to find the right person for the job. We stopped looking after we met with Steve Horn. Steve, Mike, and the exceptionally qualified sub-contractors were able to take our ideas for the home and turn them into a reality. They always kept us informed, were there to always answer questions, guide us in making the right decisions and dealt with my never-ending changes. We loved working with everyone and highly recommend Mastercraft Design and Build."

"On April 22, 2011 at 8:05 P.M. a Category 4 tornado hit our neighborhood. I have a friend who owns Berkeley Lumber and asked him who he would recommend to rebuild our home. His answer was Steve Horn. From the First time we met with him he was concerned with our wishes to rebuild home. As you can see from the pictures we have a beautiful home we are proud of. Thanks Steve!"

"After interviewing five general contractors for the job. I felt very comfortable with Steve and the impressive resume he presented. Having done most of the work on our house myself and with the help of my friends, I was not about to let just anyone rebuild our dream home. With a list of excellent subcontractors, creative design, a good working knowledge of the residential industry and scheduling skills Steve was able to satisfy the insurance company and most important the homeowner. We were able to move in a week early. What a thrill."

"When we called you, you responded immediately. You knew exactly how to coordinate with the insurance company’s adjuster. The craftsmen which you brought to the job were excellent and knew how to restore a 1924 house to its original look using modern materials."
