Our building experience with James Clyde Custom Homes was exceptional from start to finish!

James and his team made the entire process effortless and stress free, with personal attention to our home from the first contact with the realtor through the completion of our home.

This is the second home we’ve built, but the first with James Clyde.

What a difference it was dealing with a true professional who believes in building a quality home!

James and his team of professional craftsmen kept us up to date and involved with the progression of our new home every step of the way.

We are so very happy with our new home, and recommend James Clyde Custom Homes to anyone looking for a quality home building experience.


Evan & Lauren Powell

During our search for a new home, we stumbled upon a few James Clyde Custom Homes. 

Evan-Lauren-Powell

We hadn’t heard of James Clyde before, but instantly liked what we saw. 

We still weren’t certain if we wanted to build, but after our initial meeting with James and his team, we were sold.  

From day one through the closing on our home, and continuing with the warranty process, we have been given incredible service. 

His entire team has been extremely helpful and very friendly. 

They made the building process seamless and a lot of fun to participate in.  

We recommend building with James Clyde to everyone and would not hesitate to build with James again in the future. 


Brian & Sylvia Nelson

We were in a unique buying situation when we started searching for a new home, as we were moving back to the states from living abroad. We began making a series of trips to Boise to research the housing market and potential builders. During our first trip, we visited several finished homes in the Boise, Meridian and Eagle area and were intrigued by a James Clyde Home. The house had just been sold, but was open for viewing. We found the layout to be quite livable and intelligently thought out. The build quality was high, with attention to details not seen in otherhomes.

A few months later we made a second trip to continue our search. After looking at literally every available house in our price-range, we ended up in another James Clyde Home. Again, the house had just been purchased, but was being shown by Rob Pearce. He mentioned another availableJames Clyde Home in the neighborhood that was in the early stages of framing. We looked at the lot and it fit our needs perfectly. The next morning we met with James Clyde and his team. The entire crew was knowledgeable, professional and very helpful. 

Brian-Sylvia-NelsonWe were met with a challenge when we had to leave again for 3 months, so we only had a few days to make our selections and walk through changes we wanted in the house. The Selections Coordinator made a potentially stressful process seem like a casual conversation. All the support, ideas and creativity were essential in making our choices for our home. In the end, we felt like we had designed “our home”, but we couldn’t have done it without all the help.

Before we left, James Clyde and his team met us at the house to walk through layout changes and additions.  We discussed adding a custom desk in the office space, and his cabinet contractor quickly drew up a plan that met our needs. We wanted a wine room initially, but after discussions with James and the Selections Coordinator we determined that a wine bar was a more useful addition. These are just two examples of the customizations we wanted in our home, and it was amazing how their vast experience and knowledge made the process so simple.

While we were out of the country, we were given photo updates of the house as it was being finished, which made us feel like we were still part of the building process. When we finally returned, we knew exactly what to expect.

During our final walk-through, Dianne was there to answer our questions, and even demonstratedthe features of every appliance in the home. The fact that she owns a James Clyde Home herself allowed her to provide rich recommendations on how to best set-up the home and use the features that are designed into it. The home-owners guidebook is top notch and another example of the care and attention that the James Clyde Custom Homes team demonstrates.

After nearly a year in our home, we appreciate the thoughtfulness in the layout that makes everyroom usable. We highly recommend a James Clyde Home, and based on the customer service alone, we wouldn’t buy a home from anyone else.


Ron & Patty Williams

Ron-Patty-Williams

Over the years, we’ve purchased several homes as a result of multiple career moves.

The Sierra Dawn model by James Clyde fits our “empty nest” lifestyle with everything on one level.

The open floor plan creates a warm and inviting space, perfect for entertaining.

We were impressed with the many custom features James Clyde includes in his models, compared to other comparably priced homes.

The service after the sale was great, which always makes a difference.

We recommend a James Clyde Custom Home to any prospective buyer interested in custom features and quality workmanship at a very competitive price.

 


Diane McLaughlin

The first time I saw a James Clyde home was at a Parade of Homes open house during my first visit to Boise.  I loved the layout, the special finishes, and the attention to detail like the crown moldings included in the price. I kept the James Clyde brochure for three years.  When my husband and I finally decided to make the move to Boise from Rhode Island, a James Clyde home was what we wanted.  We searched for re-sales, but nothing compared to what James offered in his homes.  So we found an available lot in a small custom subdivision, which James was kind enough to look at it with us, and we began the process.

Diane-McLaughlinWe met with James and Dianne to discuss the home design we wanted and potential modifications to his standard design.  Every idea we offered was met with a positive response. They said the home would be built in four months, even though it was winter, and they delivered.  Everyone from James and Dianne, to the Selections Coordinator who helped us choose all the finishes, to theSuperintendents and Subs were so professional and accommodating.  We love our home! And wehighly recommend James Clyde Custom Homes for the value, beauty, and ease in the building process.

My wife and I discussed our options and decided to go with James Clyde.  They had the complete package and the look and style we were wanted.  In discussion with the other builders, their price kept going up, while James never moved. 

During the construction, the service and value got even better.  Each step of the way, James was personally involved with the decisions and made every effort to ensure our satisfaction.  I was especially impressed when James saw something he did not like, he had his crews fix it immediately.  He treated our home like he was building it for his own family.

The service and quality starts at the top and flows through to everyone involved with the building process.  The project coordinator, Rose, was especially helpful.  She was with us every step of the way.  Rose helped us with finishes, appliances, cabinets, carpet, paint, and made the whole building process quite enjoyable.

I wouldn’t consider building with anyone other than James Clyde.  His product, his service, and his people are top notch and take personal pride in their end product. 


Aaron Mann

When my wife and I decided to build a home, we already had our builder’s list narrowed down to a list of three. 

We attended the parade of homes and the last stop was to visit a James Clyde home. 

James happened to be sitting in the kitchen of the model home talking with guests. 

We introduced ourselves and chatted about what we were looking for, toured the home, and thought that was going to be it.

Matt Rissell

When we decided to build a home, we were apprehensive to say the least. 

We had heard and read about numerous nightmares of those who had been taken advantage of during the building process, and knowing nothing about construction – and the huge investment that it was – we were scared to death.

I can count on one hand the number of people that actually do what they say they are going to – with or without it in writing. James Clyde did EXACTLY what he said he would. Period. From start to finish the building our home was fun, easy, and the James Clyde crew held our hand and worked on our behalf throughout the entire process. After we moved in, we were so thrilled with the level of service we received, and the end result with our home, we took our James Clyde management crew and their spouses out to dinner as one more way to express our thanks. Even now, we are out of our warranty period and his assistance and service has not decreased at all.

Not at all!

My wife and I had never met nor heard of James Clyde prior to our building engagement, have no vested interest in his success, and yet we recommend James Clyde to everyone. Should we ever decide to build again, we would, without question, call James Clyde.
