The Caskie Home

The Caskie’s were in the process of “escaping the rat race” in Atlanta and wanted to have a weekend home for a few years until they could retire. Unfortunately, (for their plans) they loved the final product so much that they moved up here immediately upon completion. You can now find Jim in his “train room” and Linda in the Kitchen or screened in porch.

We purchased our lot at Smith Mountain Lake over nine years ago, spending our summer vacations anchored in front of the lot dreaming of the home that we would one day build. During that time we talked to a lot of people about builders in the SML area and interviewed several well-known and well-respected builders. From the first moment we met Eddie, we knew he would not only be our builder, but would be someone who could make our vision a reality. We felt very comfortable with Eddie. His patience, advice, professional knowledge, and open and honest approach made him the perfect choice.

Living in Atlanta meant that we could not run up every day and check on progress or micro-manage the process. We depended on Eddie to coordinate everything and make sure the quality of workmanship would meet our expectations. From the selection of where the house would be placed on the lot, to the curved driveway, to the stone fireplace, to the design of the kitchen – it all exceeded our expectations. We thoroughly enjoyed working with Eddie and all of his sub-contractors. It was easy to tell that his team took great pride in their work and in our home. You still may find us anchored out in front of our home…but now it is a dream come true.
