Choosing Howell Custom Homes as our builder was the most important we made in our move to Indiana. Monte is professional, easy to work with and kept us updated which helped us to feel like we were onsite even though we were 350 miles away during the building process. Monte gave us some excellent suggestions yet implemented our individual preferences. The construction subcontractors were highly skilled in their specialty area. When we moved in, the house was clean and picture perfect. The house feels solid as a rock and we love it. The few issues that crept up were readily handled by Monte. Thank you!

A friend recommended Howell Custom Homes to us for our kitchen and bathroom remodel.  We were very impressed with the high quality work, time project completion, and friendly service.  Howell Custom Homes made the entire project go smoothly and made helpful recommendations along the way that saved us money.  We plan to use Howell Custom Homes for future remodel projects.

Monte has done multiple exterior repair and interior remodeling jobs on our home and the results have been excellent. Monte takes personal ownership in the work being done and treats the job like it was his own home. He offers creative options and cost effective solutions. Of great importance is Monte’s level of communication. He does a great job of ensuring that work plans are clear and concise, and that there are no big surprises along the way.

We have used Howell Custom Homes on numerous occasions at two different homes.  The scope of work was extensive home remodeling which involved multiple rooms in the homes.  Monte’s personal approach sets him apart from others – he simply cares about your satisfaction and doing things the right way.  He has excellent rapport with his trades and handles any questions diplomatically.  Complete trust with him and the team he assembles.  When friends and family approach me about potential home building or remodeling, we have confidence and pride in recommending Howell Custom Homes.

Monte Howell has been a customer of Edgewood Building Supply for a long time and has always been great to work with.  His understanding of the building industry is a huge asset to his ability to build a very nice, quality house.  He is as great a person as he is a builder!

Always Remained Conscious Of Our Budget

Monte was a wonderful partner all the way through the design, contracting and building of our home! He was flexible and knowledgeable enough to provide us as much autonomy or as much guidance as we desired! Since this was our first time building, we often sought his guidance and were always pleased with his responses! He worked with us on the design long before we ever signed a contract and always remained conscious of our budget. Monte was always available, responsive, and attentive to our requests and we are extremely pleased with the beautiful home he built for us!

It has been my extreme pleasure to have worked with Monte Howell in providing cabinetry for Howell Custom Homes.  Monte’s attention to details and attentiveness to his customers’ need is evident throughout the building process.  He is excellent with communicating budgets and realistic timelines.  In the building business, there are always unforeseen circumstances that arise.  Once, after new cabinets had been installed, the delivery of the refrigerator revealed unusual door hinges that required the appliance to sit way out from the cabinets in order to open.  Understandably, the result was not satisfactory to the client.  Monte met me at the home on a weekend to calmly and professionally solve this unique problem.  Through teamwork and his excellent installer, we worked through the issue.  Monte has the knowledge and the patience to make construction enjoyable.  If you are building, Monte Howell is the builder you want on your team!

I have done several projects with Howell Custom Homes.  They are hands down the most professional and honest contractor / builder I have ever worked with.  Their attention to detail is amazing.  They meet their timelines and give accurate expectations from beginning to end.
