My husband and I built our first custom home with Intrigue Custom Homes this year and we could not be more satisfied with the outcome. We are head over heels in love with our home. Paul went above and beyond our expectations from start to finish. He was timely, prompt, friendly and professional in all aspects of the process. Paul took the time to help us understand our options and guided us in decision making that he knew would result in the quality of home we desired. He educated us on all aspects of the construction process, he assisted with the PUD to bring power to our property, having the well drilled, and introduced us to an architect who helped create the plans to fit the needs of our family and our property. Paul held our hand in all aspects of this project.

Paul’s attention to detail is what sets him apart. The level of craftsmanship is top notch, he has an ability to look at colors and see the big picture which my husband I were not able to see. If something was out of place or not what was expected Paul picked up on it before my husband and I had a chance to say anything.  Paul helped our process go as smoothly as possible because he truly listened to our wants and had a clear understanding of what our dream home would be. Paul hired very competent sub-contractors who were friendly, timely and did great work.

From start to finish Paul was honest, knowledgeable, and fun to work with. He stands apart from other contractors because of his ability to see the final product and read what it was we wanted out of our home even when we could not verbalize our wants. We would do this entire process over again with Paul, he streamlined the process and left us with a home that we will love for a very long time.

Thank you we loved the process because of the work you put in.

When we decided to have a home built, we were given a list of Home Building Contractors from a Relator. The Relator recommended Paul Fansler of Intrigue Custom Homes indicating he had always had good experiences working with Paul and felt Paul was honest and fair. We also saw a flyer with pictures of homes he had built and were very impressed with the look of the homes. They were exactly what we were looking to have built.

After meeting Paul in person, and discussing our plans with him, we decided he was the Contractor for us. Being first time home builders, we had no experience with the process involved in building a custom home. Paul guided us through each step from obtaining the construction loan, the floor plans, the engineered drawings, permitting, etc.

Paul was excellent to work with. Although we had ideas and specific things we wanted in our new home, he was able to help us achieve our vision and make it even better than we had imagined.

It is obvious that Paul has a lot of experience in building high-quality, custom homes, just take a look at the homes he has built. He does beautiful work. He has the ability to take a rough idea and turn into reality, exceeding expectations by paying attention to every detail.

We recommend Paul Fansler of Intrigue Custom Homes to anyone considering having a custom home built.

Paul was recommended to us by a sub-contractor who was doing some work for us. He had said that Paul did very nice, high quality finish work and added several ‘nice touches’ that really makes a house stand out. We contacted Paul showed him the lot we had and a few sketches for layout and look of the house we wanted to build.

Paul helped us every step of the way from those rough sketches to the final drawings to the final house. Paul added significant value by making suggestions, when appropriate, to assure the final build would meet all our expectations. To be sure, Paul spent a lot of time guiding us through the maze of details required for building a quality home.

During the construction, Paul added the nice touches we wanted, coffered ceiling in the great room and tray-ceilings in the master bedrooms. Paul went with us to pick finishes and always carried a few pieces of flooring and wall coverings to make sure what we picked didn’t clash with existing finishes. Paul also made sure that he was following our wishes and adding those special extras that really add to the looks and feel of the house. The sub-contractors Paul uses are first rate and do quality work. Our kitchen is absolutely gorgeous.

In the end, we have a beautiful, comfortable, high quality dream home we love and enjoy. I highly recommend that you let Paul build one for you.

We recently had a custom home built by Intrigue Homes. The experience was a pleasant and rewarding one for us. The prospect of building a new home is a big and daunting task. Paul Fansler, the owner of Intrigue Homes, walked us through each step of the building process addressing all of our questions and concerns along the way. The construction was completed in a professional manner and on schedule. We were impressed with the attention to detail. We would not hesitate in recommending Paul to anyone considering building a custom home. He is a very honest person with the highest integrity. We feel fortunate that Paul built our home. We have a beautiful well-built home and found a friend in Paul.

Paul worked with our son to frame his first house (a first for both of them). He provided a cost estimate, helped our son with an efficient design process, and set up a detailed schedule for the completion of the work. He paid attention to our son's wishes and expectations and ensured that the work met very strict and quality standards. He accomplished the project on schedule within the original estimate.

When our son started the plans for his second house, he contacted Paul and asked him to handle the framing of that project. He didn't even request estimates from another subcontractor. Again, Paul did stellar work, meeting deadlines, estimates, and producing quality work. When the company that our son hired to build the trusses failed to meet the specifications Paul's response was, "I require only quality work." Then, he corrected the problem immediately by using his crew. My son appreciated Paul's honesty and professionalism.

Then, our son decided to build a shop that measured 40ft x 70ft. Again Paul was the only subcontractor he contacted. Paul helped with the design and proved that he was the only person that our son wanted to work with him.

Now our son has moved and plans to build another large shop and a new home. He will be contacting Paul again.
