Testimonials

We love our new custom home!

We love our new custom home! We are a military family who is big on family and wanted our home to be built with family in mind. We selected our builder out of three other builders, which was based on friendly customer service and we chose Design South Homes! From the moment we first called, Mr. Philip Crotwell until now, we felt like he was family. I will never forget, I called for something really insignificant and he immediately showed interest in my concerns. Which at that point, we knew he was the right person, at the right time to be OUR builder.

Design South Homes was very professional and trustworthy in building our new home. Everything my family wanted in our new home was provided with a smile plus. We never worried about anything being so far away (Kentucky) during construction. What we requested was completed in a timely manner and there were even extras on the home. Something as simple as a design pattern on the outside of our home sent a tear running down my face; extreme passion, loyalty, and commitment to the customer. We cannot thank Philip and his team enough! We love our custom home that we created with the help from Design South Homes. This is history for our family! Our home will be enjoyed for years to come. Thanks a million!! ~ Luis & Teresa C., Howey-in-The Hills, Florida

Specializes in high-quality

Finding design services and building construction under one roof proved difficult for us in Central Florida. Growing up around residential construction, I was aware of the pitfalls of hiring someone to build someone else’s plan. Philip is the rare individual who is a true master of both design and construction, and on top of that he specializes in high quality construction and finishes. Our decision to hire Design South Homes was easy. There was not anyone who was even a close second. We feel fortunate to have found Design South Homes. If production quality just doesn’t cut it for you, then Design South Homes is for you! ~ John F., Winter Park, Florida

What a great ride this has been!

HOLY MOLY!  What a great ride this has been!  I never would have imagined that building a custom home would be this easy—and fun!  It was a great experience for our entire family and how we came together to make decisions regarding hardware, cabinetry, etc.  It was so exciting to see the changes and what had been done week-by-week.  I’m almost sorry that this process is over!  BUT – I think that what we miss most is seeing Philip throughout the week; however, we are SO grateful that we have become friends and we get to stay in contact with them.  We’re already to build again!! ~ Janet H., Apopka, Florida

100% satisfied

This was our first building experience and it was stress-free and a real joy.  From the moment we met with President, Philip Crotwell, to the final walk-through, we were completely satisfied and at peace with all aspects of building our custom home.  We were able to easily select beautiful hardware, cabinetry, doorways, and countertops at Design South Homes’ showroom, which saved us much time and energy, and Design South Homes had better quality materials than the average home design stores.

Design South Homes handled every step of the building with confidence and with the utmost highest quality materials.  We are 100% satisfied with Design South Homes and very happy with our new home.  We recommend Design South Homes to everyone—there’s no need to go elsewhere! ~ Dan H., Apopka, Florida

We enjoyed the process

Working with Design South Homes from the beginning of our project really made a difference for us.  They were able to match our wish list to our budget with many creative ideas.  We got more home than we hoped for – and enjoyed the process. ~ Bob & Lisa T., Sorrento, Florida

knowledgeable & experienced

Philip was very forthcoming with information and references at our first meeting.  It was clear we were working with a builder that was very knowledgeable and experienced.  He really listened to us and made it easy.  We are so pleased with our new home. ~ Tom & Gail M., Mount Dora, Florida

We are so delighted

I asked Philip to design a new Master Bath addition around my beautiful Italian statue.  He nailed it!  We are so delighted with the end result.  The finishes are perfect and we love our new luxurious Master suite.  Design South Homes’ attention to detail and customer care have made the process possible.  I have since recommended the company to my friends with pride. ~ Chris K., Mount Dora, Florida

Most Beautiful Kitchen

We knew our kitchen could be made over into something more functional.  We were at a loss with how to rearrange it to get the layout to work with new upgraded appliances, and drag our old house into today’s times.  We called Philip to the rescue and within a few days we had a new kitchen layout that not only worked well, but exceeded our imagination.

Design South Homes performed the work and we now have the most beautiful kitchen in the neighborhood.  Thank you guys for making it painless.  I’m enjoying the new kitchen so much I could almost give up going out to dinner – well, almost…All the best. ~ Doris and Jim L., Mount Dora, Florida
