Testimonials

"Lordan Development was recommended to us by friends who just had their custom home completed by Sam the year before.  They couldn’t say enough about Sam’s detail and knowledge when it came to building their dream home.  We asked Sam to consider building our dream home in a very unique and difficult environment, some ½ mile from any road and utilities.  Sam didn’t disappoint, he was with us from the start with the design, and was there for every aspect of the building process until we moved in and were comfortable with the final product, and he’s still involved making sure everything is the way we wanted it and working 100%.

We can’t say enough about Sam’s personal pride, experience, detail, and care when it comes to building your custom home.  His selection of contractors are the best in the business, and take the time to do the job right.  If you’re looking for a high quality, custom home, one you sure will be proud of in the end, Lordan Development is for you!"

"As I sit  in our new home overlooking the spectacular views of Cayuga lake, I hope  you can share our new home construction experience with your prospective clients.

I must first preface, upon entering the new construction process with you, both my wife and I, having built previous new homes of our own, we have gained a unique perspective of this process with fairly high expectations. We also entered this process with a budget for which we were willing to exceed if the outcome of those expenditures were practical, functional and  held long term value with increased curb appeal. Having said that, you and your team exceeded our expectations. As i sit here and look around me, the added 
features we opted above our budget were well worth it.  

Our initial concerns were; Can you build a quality home that would withstand the test of time, be low maintenance  and within our budget? You swiftly guided us thru the process of choosing a suitable floor plan with all the necessary features embodied within our square foot requirements that would look best on our land. We were  then able to move from these earlier plans to more customizable features in which you precisely added budget amounts so we could evaluate them appropriately. While we were disappointed at 
material costs which were standard throughout the industry, we had to come to grips with the varying cost and levels of upgrades available. It was overwhelming and concerning at times, but you always assigned hard numbers for everything we asked for which then  brought us into the reality of what we could afford. 

Thus far, we have enjoyed many good times in our new home with friends and family. Every visitor we have had, has been simply "blown away".  The more our guests have looked around the house the more impressed they became and if your prospective clients don't believe me, then they can come and see for themselves. So from our initial meetings with you, thru the construction processes, to the "punch list" and beyond, I would recommend you as a builder without reservation."
