Choosing a custom home builder for our first custom home can be a daunting and mind-boggling experience from the start. You spend many days and weeks thinking whether to proceed and when you do finally decide, how you ensure that the partner (General Contractor) you have chosen is the right one for you?

Since this was our first truly custom home building experience we needed to be sure we chose the right company, but most importantly the right person for the custom home we and hopefully future family generations will live in for many years to come. So, we set out and interviewed six custom home builders that would fit our budget for a 3,400 sq ft home in the Hilton Head Island area.

After several weeks, we narrowed the list to four companies, large and small to choose from. The financial considerations were straight forward but the question was which general contractor would be the right fit for us and can we be assured that the end result would be rewarding and for us to say we made the right choice. After having additional discussions with the group of four highly experienced companies we decided that the selection decision will be determined on who would be the right fit based on personalities, flexibility regarding changes and finally the finishing details from homes built by these four builders.

Actually, it was a straightforward decision at the end to choose Reminiscent Homes which is owned and operated by Mr. Richard Creamer. This is a family business with Richard and his wife Elaine, plus a home designer Mr. Alex Lopez on the premises who will work with you designing your home and making changes along the way. They are truly all professionals. Elaine Creamer was a godsend helping us decide on finishes, appliances and best of all the color palette for the interior of the home. The attention to detail from all the people that I just mentioned was extremely rewarding. Mr Creamer is a hands-on contractor using only the most reputable sub-contractors. Pictures were sent to me almost on a daily basis from beginning to end. The materials that were used were first rate. Since we live in another state, we made several trips for meetings and observed the steady progress on the home. We relied heavily on Mr. Creamer and his team to abide by the community’s regulations and permitting processes which was done with no issues.

What we enjoyed the most was seeing the quality and attention to detail regarding the framing of the home. Mr. Creamer’s prior experience comes from the framing trade and for us living in South Florida for fifty five years, the strength of the home is in the materials, design and framing of the home and we could not be any happier with the results. We have now been living in the home for seven months and we still have a number of neighbors that have approached us and complimented us on our home design and the attention to detail that they have actually seen while our home was being built. It is with great pleasure that I am recommending Reminiscent Homes to build your next custom home.

“Richard Creamer and his team designed and built our 2,264 sq. ft. Home, in Hampton Lake. From Lot Clearing to completion, Richard orchestrated every aspect of the project with our best interest, not his bottom line, being the priority. He was virtually on site everyday, if not twice, overseeing each phase with unbridled enthusiasm, passion, and pride. His commitment to structural integrity, craftsmanship, and attention to detail is evident throughout the home and is his signature trademark. We feel extremely fortunate to have had Richard and Reminiscent Homes as our builder, but now even more so, since they have become friends.”

He keeps adding details that make it better and better. Each time I walk into our new home, I am in awe of it. Would we recommend Rick Creamer as a Builder? Yes we a heartbeat!”

“Reminiscent Homes recently built my 4,200 sq. ft. Home in Bluffton, SC. The home is in the Craftsman Lowcountry style and Reminiscent incorporated many details in the home to portray the style of the home we were trying to achieve. They were easy to work with and were on site each and every day of the project until it was finished to everyone’s satisfaction. I would highly recommend Reminiscent Homes.”
