Custom Home Customer Reviews
Modern Farmhouse & Barn
We had a great experience with Stockell! The process was very transparent, which was reassuring for us. Don and the team were quick to respond and were reliable with follow up. Our new house and barn are beautiful!
We’ve lived in a lot of houses, all fairly new. This is the warmest, most comfortable home we have lived in, and the electric bill is the lowest. Whatever you’re doing through ZERH, it’s working.
The Best House We’ve Ever Lived in
This is the best house we’ve ever lived in. Stockell Custom Homes built a state-of-the-art, energy efficient house that is cost effective beyond our expectations. We have solar panels and geothermal HVAC. We built during covid which presented labor and production shortages along with wildcat pricing. Don and his team met each hurdle with patience and innovative solutions. Don joined our meeting with our architect, Ed Stevens, and had valuable input on creating a beautiful forever home. We have wheelchair accessibility with an elevator and no step up from the garage that has a double entry to the house. Everyone who walks in the front door says how beautiful our house is. Thank you Stockell!
Energy Star, ADA Compliant Home
My husband and I hired Stockell Homes to build our families custom energy efficient, wheelchair accessible home. Our 3470 square foot home has the latest Energy Star building techniques, is ADA compliant and on budget! Furthermore, our home achieved one of the lowest HERS Index scores that ASERusa has tested in the Saint Louis Region over the last ten years. We couldn’t be happier.
Bringing Our Dream Home to Life
Stockell Custom homes helped us bring our dream home to life and we don’t have enough good things to say about them. From Don’s (the owner) attention to detail and hands-on involvement, to Ken’s (our PM) constant valuable interactions and updates, the building process from start to finish went seamless and we felt that our intentions were always front and center and being addressed. We highly recommend them to anyone looking to build a custom home!
Homes Built to Last
Stockell Custom Homes & Construction builds homes that last. We have been in our home for 25 years. The craftsmanship and solid construction have held up beautifully over time.
Attention to Detail
We were very pleased with Don and Tom. If not one, then both Don and Tom were on the project daily. The whole planning of the house went very smoothly. The subcontractors were not only professional and friendly but their work was awesome! They approached their work as if they were working on their own home. They paid close attention to fine detail and made excellent suggestions. Our house was finished on schedule in spite of the rain delays we had!
We are thrilled with the results. Thanks for your good ideas, your attention to detail and for being so easy to work with. Also, the Stockell’s subcontractors are great. The entire process was quick, on schedule and created minimal inconvenience: all because of your professionalism. We hope we have the opportunity to refer others to you. Looking forward to a continued friendship.
After Stockell Custom Homes completed a Department of Energy – Zero Energy Ready Home, the client wanted to share his experience with others interested in pursuing the same certification. Now having lived in the home for over seven months, he shares the many benefits of his new super energy efficient, energy producing home with outstanding healthy indoor air quality.
A Notch Above the Rest
Stockell Custom Homes is a notch above the rest. We moved in our home in May 2021 and couldn’t be happier! The team there is very detailed….they are experts at figuring out the “best way” to lay the foundation and go from there. Ken was assigned as our project manager and he became part of our daily routine throughout the build. There is a lot of decisions with many vendors for a new home and we were supremely impressed with the group of folks that Stockell is associated with.
We know of others who used Stockell to build their home and they are happy as well! The “trust” factor was extremely important to us….you rely on their expertise to guide you to a finished product that you can’t wait to get home to. We feel that way about Stockell…sense of pride of ownership every time we walk in the door brought to us by the amazing Stockell Home Builders!

Integrity and Professionalism
I own and operate West County Heating & Cooling and have been a subcontractor for Stockell Homes for many years. Don, Tom, & everyone at Stockell believe in providing the best quality work with integrity and professionalism. We look forward to continuing our partnership!
Don and his team at Stockell Custom Homes designed and built our Carriage House. This external building looks like it was constructed at the same time as our home. The construction quality and workmanship are excellent, and the building is a perfect addition to our property.
There is a bonus room above the main floor which serves as an adorable playroom for our grandkids. We utilize the entire building all year for a variety of purposes. Like everything Don does, this building is exactly what we envisioned.
Like many construction projects, we asked for changes as we saw opportunities to fine-tune some features we had overlooked. Don accommodated our revisions to the original plan and made some suggestions that made our ideas even better.
If you want a great balance of quality, price, and flexibility there is no company better than Stockell Custom Homes.
Fabulous Work Ethic
Stockell Homes/Don Stockell has been the general contractor for us on 2 homes. Don completely renovated every square inch of our former home, a 1902 gem (after his renovations!) in an urban setting. We moved this past Summer to a suburban 1980’s home and undertook major renovations on it.
We have received nothing but the highest compliments from all that have entered either of our homes. Don’s attention to detail and craftsmanship are superb. He has a fabulous work ethic and his word is his bond.
With all the work he has done for us we feel like Don is one of the family and we recommend him without any reservation to anyone who is ever looking for a contractor.
