Our first experience with Custom Family Homes was at the Winter Wonderland of Homes in February 2012. Their parade home was the first home we have ever seen that met all our wants and needs. And at the same time showed excellent quality and workmanship.

We have a very nice home, but lacked a couple things we really wanted - a sewing room and a bathroom in the basement. We got estimates from a couple others that seemed way out of line, they didn't show up when promise or didn't follow through. Then we called Mike at Custom Family Homes, knowing up front that if the finished product had the quality of his parade home, we would be very happy

We called Mike, who is the easiest person to work with, very prompt, courteous, and really listens to what you want. He took my little paper drawing and turned half of our basement into the sewing room of my dreams and gorgeous bathroom that our frequent guests have been requesting for a long time.

Mike worked with our budget and finished when promised. His whole team was polite and accomodating, with attention to detail. Mike also made it possible to put in an egress window in the future with the framing in place it will be an easy future addition with little mess.

Thanks Mike for giving me the sewing/quilting room of my dreams!!

After deciding to build and after interviewing several builders in the area, we made the wise decision to build with Mike Van Hoof and Custom Family Homes.

Mike listened to what we wanted and needed in our home while providing fresh ideas, high quality construction and was always accommodating. His attention to detail is obvious, and Mike's crew of subcontractors had excellent workmanship which is clearly evident throughout every inch of the house. If we had any questions or concerns, they were immediately taken care of.

Mike took us, step by step, through the entire building process, and it was a positive, enjoyable experience. We are truly enjoying and loving our brand new home! If we were to build again down the road, in the area, there would be no question who it would be with: Custom Family Homes, LLC.

We chose Custom Family Homes to construct a home that we can “build” our family around. Our decision to choose CFH was easy due to the hard work, long hours, fine-tuned attentiveness and dedication to quality given to us by Mike Van Hoof during the entire building process. Mike Van Hoof not only builds a great home, he's a great person.

His professionalism, compassion and dedication to building a quality home sets the bar high for all of the other builders in the Fox Valley. He hand-picked a great group of builders and laborers and made sure they followed through with our house plans. He also made sure we were happy during a highly stressful and nerve testing time for a married couple who were building their dream home. Controlling stress was the key to having an enjoyable building experience.

We believe Mike made sure our needs were met, our stress level was low and the end product was nothing less than excellent. Mike is our friend and now he is considered a part of our family too. We definitely would recommend Custom Family Homes because of what Mike has done for us and because we would want you to have the same great experience that we had.

We spent years going through parade homes trying to decide exactly what we wanted. Although we had a good idea of the general layout we desired, we had no idea what the building process was going to be like. We aslo didn't understand what actually made a home truly custom.

After spending 15 minutes with Mike discussing our generally ideas, we knew he would be our builder. His knowledge and expertise on every detail was every bit as impressive as the custom home he built for our family. He walked us through the building process, including picking out the perfect lot for our home. Mike was also on the job site every day, which made it easy for us to ask questions and follow the progress. We've been in our home for 5 years and still wouldn't change a thing.

We recommend Custom Family Homes to anyone looking for a quality builder!
