Who We Are
After building our first house in 2005, we decided to create our own business. Things took off from there and by 2018 C&E was building between ten to fifteen houses a year.
Keeping our workload at that level means that we can personally oversee every worksite and ensure an attention to quality and detail that can get lost on larger projects. It also allows us to maintain a focus on a wide range of services.
Family Run Business
Like us, our grandparents were involved in development and we learned from their experience. Today, both of our parents support C&E through help with landscaping, cleaning and preparing homes to be shown.
When we’re hired on larger jobs, we maintain the same crew throughout the build, allowing our staff to forge a connection with the project superintendent. This minimizes the need for unnecessary repetition and maximizes effective communication among all parties.
A Streamlined Experience for Clients
Building and/or buying a home is often the largest investment people make in their entire lives and not surprisingly, it can be stressful. We do everything possible to alleviate that stress, by connecting buyers with local resources and making sure they understand what’s happening during each stage.
Reputation Built on Word of Mouth
Often, people share that they first heard about us in the grocery store, the bank, or both. Historically, all new business has been based on referrals, whether the potential client was living on a military base half-way across the country or was a local Yelm resident. The consistent flow of new customers is a testament to the reputation C&E maintains within the industry.
“I have seen a large majority of the homes that they have built. They can build anything from a pole building to large custom home. Eric and Casey are great to work with [and] all the subcontractors pay attention to the little details.”
