Over the years we have done a number of large remodeling projects and worked with many contractors. Ben Butler is simply the best. He is creatively brilliant and also really knows his stuff on the design, engineering and materials side. A true artist, he leads several great teams that are as skilled at high-end, fine finish work as they are at tackling major complex design challenges. He is as polite and friendly as the day is long, and mindful of his client’s budgets. His subs were always the best at what they did, were extremely trustworthy and always left our home clean and tidy. It was a delight working with Ben and Capler Homes and we strongly recommend them for whatever your next project is, big or small.

Ben and his crew have gone above and beyond all of our expectations. They are timely, efficient and their work is spectacular. Taking care of their customers is a number one priority for them and they are always quick to respond and they always aim to please. I would recommend them to absolutely anyone looking to build for personal homes or businesses. Their professionalism is outstanding and their quality of work, exceptional.

Project went very well; contractors were timely, professional and courteous; they were attentive to disruptions in the household to the extent possible (major renovation projects naturally results in a lot of dust and distractions!); their time was generally well coordinated and managed so that the project could stay on a fairly tight timeline We were pleased with their attention to detail and careful craftsmanship; Ben, the head of the company, provided extensive guidance and help in planning and decisions that needed to be made , while always keeping our wishes, lifestyle, and decorating schemes at the forefront. The crew was prompt and responsive for any questions that came up along the way, and dealt quickly and openly with problems and challenges. They pointed out things we weren't aware of, like a rotted-out door frame, and worked with us on best ways to address them. An error in paint color selection in a bathroom was resolved immediately by repainting. When it became evident that something in the plan wasn't going to work, they involved us in determining how to revise the plan; for example, during the wall tiling in one bathroom, it became evident that the planned design wouldn't work well with the window frame and the Capler Homes crew came up with an alternative pattern and reviewed it with us before proceeding. I will turn to Capler Homes first for any future remodeling or building work that we need

HEDS Architects has been working with Ben Butler of Capler Homes for the past 18 months on a modern and sustainable house in Nelson County. The concept for the house is a bridge over a ravine. This idea on a very sloped wooded hillside would have shaken many contractors but Ben's enthusiasm and can-do spirit has been key toward moving forward. The project is now under construction and Ben and his team have undertaken a number of building technologies that are anything but standard for home builders. An example: 30" deep steel beams had to be craned in sections and welded from a crane above the steeply sloped ravine. As a modern house, there are many design details that are unique and Ben has been enthusiastic in taking these on. We have been working with Ben and a supplier to source and detail a unique metal facade system, for example. The house incorporates sustainable technologies such as triple-pane windows and Ben has both contributed his own knowledge as well as researched the new proposed technologies. Finally, the quality of the workmanship is excellent. We expect a lot from our contractors and Ben is one of the top builders we've worked with in over thirty years in the profession. There are few builders who are as keen as Ben to take on new challenges. I look forward to completing this exciting project and working on new projects in future with Ben and his team

My wife & I had a self designed home that 2 years ago, thought would always be a dream. After talking to Ben, he and his crews built us a beautiful, well constructed home that we have been living in for nearly a year. Ben was attentive to our needs and changes as well as willing to work through the kinks to everyone's satisfaction. He attend to a couple of small warranty issues like a pro and after it all, not only are we very happy with our home, we are happy to call him a friend. We would recommend him to anyone looking for or wanting to build a house.
