To All Home Buyers Looking for a Builder

To all future home owners looking for a builder, I would like to tell you of my experiences using Carolina Diversified Builders.

My husband and I built a home and garage with Carolina Diversified Builders. We built the garage first and then the house. We built them using 8”x8” logs.

I did some homework, I called two previous customers and they gave high recommendations. But I was unable to see what was built and how it was done. We had absolutely no idea what to expect. This was a bit of a leap of faith.

When the first logs came for the garage, we had poured the slab ourselves. It was less than perfect. Daren and his crew rectified all our imperfections and got the first course down. We did not make it easy for them.

Watching the walls go up was just amazing. The quality of work was just amazing. And this was just our garage! Daren built us beautiful garage doors. They are massive! Each one weighs about 300 lbs. We love them.

After the garage was done we sat down with Daren and designed the future house. There were a couple of re-draws with the architect. We finally were ready for the house to be built. Once again our sensational crew came to make our dreams happen.

Our old home was on the market and just as the garage was finished the house sold. We lived in the garage as the house was being built. It was a nice experience to be involved in the entire construction, from beginning to end.

I cannot speak more highly of Daren, Joe, James and Philip (Chief). They work like a well-oiled machine.

Daren and James climb around hoisting the massive logs as if they weighed nothing. Joe and Philip keep them organized. They always have the next logs ready to go. James will call out measurements, Chief makes the cuts and NEVER makes a bad cut. Joe is a master with tiling and makes great suggestions. They work really hard all day, non-stop. They want to make it perfect.

As the house continued to be constructed, Daren and the guys got to know us. They always did things in our best interests. It was a wonderful working relationship. I always felt I could rely on their amazing level of competence. If I asked for a recommendation, they would give great ones. We would usually follow what they would recommend.

For example: We were going to use a local fellow for roofing. Daren, acting in our best interest, said he knew someone who could do it for less money and probably a better job. We took his recommendation. The roofing crew came, and had the roof on in four hours. It was thrilling!

I have learned that building a house is madness. It is like taking your entire life, and throwing it in a blender. When you volunteer to make things so topsy-turvy you need someone who can put the pieces together.  Daren and James, Joe and Philip are the best people to trust with putting those pieces together.

Our new house is beautiful. It is everything we hoped it would be and more. I highly recommend using them. I had a most satisfying experience. We LOVED Them. We miss them. It was as good a working relationship you can hope for. The final product is just terrific. We love our log home that was built by Carolina Diversified Builders.

Highly Recommend This Company

“”We contracted for a huge remodel. Bill was key in consulting, advising, suggesting ideas and keeping me sane. Daren, Missy and the whole family did such a great job, were (and a year later, still are) dependable.

“We rely on them to help with contractors and maintenance. We trusted them implicitly and as a result the contractors they hired to do the work.

“Their family became our friends through this process. We highly recommend this company for your home-building needs.” — Larry and Kathy Gardner

Not Stressful or Challenging

Building any home is stressful…even your dream home. Let’s face it. So many things have to line up and go right to even start the build (20 years of planning for us after honeymooning in a log cabin).

Working with Bill Seymour in putting together our Gable Log Homes package was fun and satisfying, not stressful and challenging. One of the biggest reasons I selected Gable and Carolina Diversified Builders was the fact that I was working with my builder to get my package right…the opposite of their competitors. That was a huge plus for me because I knew this builder would not compromise their reputation on a sub-standard or surprise-ridden package. In this respect Gable/Carolina Diversified was delightfully different than the rest. When it comes to such an important investment, that extra bit of security was comforting and the deciding factor.

My hunch proved completely right. The package was exactly what we were looking for. The substantial, all-log and large timber cypress look is exactly what Gable delivered…our dream.

Oh, but there is much more! I pile of logs is just that without the Carolina Diversified team. You can only imagine our excitement and relief when the Carolina Diversified Builders team rolled onto our property. Every team member (6) went separate directions yet worked in sync with each other, knowing exactly what to do and in a mere 3-1/2 weeks our home was dried in. Not just dried in, but every detail superbly done. Extra time was taken when needed. Every request was fulfilled. In short, our house looks as perfect as anyone could expect. Each member of the team seemed equally skilled and motivated. It was just fun to watch it all happen.

While we have a lot of finishing work to do from here, we are convinced that we made the right decision with our Gable log package and having Carolina Diversified Builders dry it in. They have my highest personal recommendation.

Attention to Detail is Unsurpassed

The Locascios family, in front of their new log home, says they recommend Carolina Diversified Builders.

The Locascios family, in front of their new log home, says they recommend Carolina Diversified Builders.

Hi, we’re the Locascios. We recently built a log home in Rumbling Bald Spa and Resort at Lake Lure, NC. We made the choice to contract Carolina Diversified Builders of Gilbert, SC, and are more than thrilled with the final product.

The home turned out more beautiful than we could have ever imagined. The attention to detail is amazing and they enhanced the plans along the way with any extra ideas and materials they could utilize in the design elements. Their eye for “uniqueness” set them apart – there are several handmade designs throughout the house that came from the land we built on.

Carolina Diversified Builders is Bill Seymour and his children, Daren, Billy and Tammy. This family is one of the most genuine you will ever meet, you feel like a friend from the moment you meet each of them. They kept us up-to-date with everything along the way, made tremendous suggestions and responded quickly to any requests we made.

The usual “bumps in the road” were handled with concern in our best interest. Their honesty and integrity makes the experience a true partnership. We would definitely do it all over again – who knows what the future holds? And certainly would strongly recommend Carolina Diversified Builders and the Seymour family, without hesitation, to anyone out there looking for a pleasant and thorough construction experience.

It Was an Awesome Experience!

My building experience with Carolina Diversified Builders, was awesome! From the moment I decided to build a cottage from HandCrafted Homes, Bill Seymour guided me each step of the way to the timely completion. They have a very knowledgeable crew. Bill has great design ideas, work was completed on time, the work site stayed clean, and he was always on-call if I had any questions. I give the highest possible recommendation to them!

Trustworthy & Technically Advanced

We turned to Bill Seymour and his family at Carolina Diversified Builders to build our retirement home in the Blue Ridge Mountains. It was a long distance project, since we were living in another state at the time. But Bill took care of everything, from infrastructure and foundation, to the final design of the home. It was exciting to watch a home be placed on a foundation in one day. A few weeks later, we moved in. The quality of construction is unsurpassed and we pay half of what our neighbors do for energy. I highly recommend Carolina Diversified Builders.”
