We are delighted with our new Custom Scandinavian home. Jake and his team took our vision of a fulltime residence that would be not too big, not too small, with specific functional areas and made it a reality. They were very patient in all phases of design and construction to ensure our ideas emerged. In addition, they were responsive, attentive to details and provided sound advice, all of which eased our concerns about building a home from 2,000 miles away. Our neighbors in Tuhaye commented on how the site was neat and well-supervised with work continuing every day. Our bank was very pleased with their accounting department and all aspects of financing the construction.
Kudos to Jake, Jouni, Pam, Angela, Charlie and the entire team!

The care and attention to detail you and your team gave to our house during the design and construction process has produced a magnificent house that we are proud to call our new "home!" We hope you are as proud of it as we are excited to own it. Thanks for making our dream a reality.

We worked with Scandinavian Designs on Architectural concept drawings for our new permanent residence at Victory Ranch Club in Kamas, Utah. From start to finish we had a very professional and enlightening experience. The members of the Scandinavian Team listened to our dreams, executed them into a drawing, and all modifications were addressed quickly into revisions. The lines of communication were open, easy and responsive. We visited two completed homes and a site in The Colony, in Park City, Utah that was under construction. The engineering, construction and jobsite were extremely organized, very impressive! We would highly recommend Scandinavian Design for home design and building.

"I have been very fortunate to work with Scandinavian building two beautiful homes at the Promontory Ranch Club. The Scandinavian team are true professionals in every sense of the word as their work ethic, attention to detail ,and most importantly their follow through once the homes were completed are second to none. Scandinavian brings a style and energy to the custom home market that is rare in today's world and I would not hesitate to use them again. We have recently purchased a lot at Walnut Cove outside of Ashville North Carolina (part of the Cliffs Communities in North Carolina) and as soon as our architectural plans are finished, we will definitely be calling Scandinavian to build our next mountain home.

"We have known Scandinavian Homes for about five years, as we purchased a custom home built by Scandinavian in 2004. The appeal to us has been the house's strong architectural lines, use of handsome logs, stone, and copper elements - all well suited to this Park City mountain setting. Both the exterior and interior architecture offer distinctive, eye-catching design. In this alpine setting, we have been especially pleased with the home's radiant heat features, multiple fireplaces, and the heat retention properties of the logs - we are able to keep our thermostats at 65-68 degrees Fahrenheit in the coldest winter months, and the house is toasty. As part-time residents, it has been especially reassuring to us that Scandinavian Homes stands by its work, giving us a comfort level with our investment."

"We've been thoroughly impressed with Scandinavian from the moment we met them. For us, the most significant difference between them and other builders that we have worked with is that they care about our satisfaction just as much two years after we moved in as they did when we first met."

I have known and done business with Jake since he moved to Utah from Colorado in 2003. I have dealt with a good deal of Jake’s clients in my business of finding financing for their homes. I can count on accurate information and a successful conclusion at the end of each project. Jake has a unique building style but more importantly, he has a unique business model that I have personally been involved in. He includes past clients in the process of making suggestions as to how he can improve his business. Not just any clients, but very successful people in different segments of business. I have seen him incorporate these suggestions and thereby improve his operation. Jake is a great person who I consider not just a very good business partner, but a trusted friend.

Honesty, quality and construction savvy are the reasons we chose to work with Scandinavian Homes. Based on our geography (Residence in Florida), Janet and I made the decision to go with a one stop design/build solution and we couldn’t be happier. We would absolutely recommend Scandinavian.”

What a relief to be living in a cozy wooden house after the damp concrete and terra cotta of typical Portuguese houses. Wood is a natural solution to the damp winters and hot summers of Portugal, and Custom Scandinavian an excellent choice for providing the help and guidance throughout my project : wood and Custom Scandinavian... a perfect combination!
