Words cannot express how pleased we have been with our Step One custom designed home. Having spent many years in the military with the associated frequent moves, we were ready to settle down into what we hoped would be our dream house. It has turned out to be that and indeed a whole lot more. Working with Dan and Lori Degre was a joy throughout the entire building process.

From generating plans to arranging financing, to building the structure and finally putting on the finishing touches, all aspects of the project were well planned, fully documented and executed with focus and precision. The construction unfolded exactly as predicted β€” on cost and schedule with few if any unforeseen problems made possible largely by the professionalism and attention β€”to-detail of the entire Step One organization.

The finished product is beautiful - a home to be proud of and one which we'll enjoy owning and living in for many years to come. It was even selected as one of the Moore County Builders Association Homes of the Year for 2007 β€” an honor richly deserved by Dan, Lori and their entire team at Step One Design/Build.

We can honestly say that after four years of ownership, there is nothing we would change and in fact, would do it all over again exactly the same way as long as Dan, Lori and Step One were once again involved.

Thank you sincerely for a job very well and professionally done.
