Designed by Kersting Architecture

Jeremy has the expertise and experience to help us build a modern house. The quality of the build is extremely high. It’s been a couple years since we moved in and so far not a single problem whatsoever. Jeremy is down to earth, responsible, and responsive. He works with us to solve problems and helps us stay with our budget without compromising on quality. It’s absolutely clear that he cares about the houses he builds as if they were his own and his customers (us for example) can depend on him for the long haul. If we had the chance to build another house, we would definitely choose Jeremy again.

When my husband and I decided to tear down our 60 year old beach cottage and rebuild a new home on the lot, we knew that deciding on a builder was going to be a very important component in the process. No pun intended but we “Nailed” it with Jeremy Bishop of Sterling Custom Construction! First of all he got us in our home on such a timely manner that we didn’t miss a summer on the beach. More importantly, he built a beautiful, top quality, well constructed home that we could not be happier with! Jeremy steered us in the right direction with every decision from top to bottom. It’s hard to believe we have been in our house over 2 years now, and still any time I have had a question or needed something Jeremy has responded right away. He’s just a wonderful person to work with and someone you can trust without a doubt. He truly cares about doing a good job for his clients and I can’t say enough in recommending him as a builder!

We extensively interviewed 4 builders for our very complicated, architect designed, major remodel. Jeremy was the one who always had the best ideas and solutions to problems during the bidding process and was fairly priced, so we chose Sterling.

The project involved pushing the entire back wall of the house out by 10 feet on all 3 floors, replacing most of the roof, adding 2 new bedrooms, removing 3 pilings in the great room and replacing them with a 40 foot steel beam. The work took about 9 months. This was very complicated and arduous work and the end result is nothing short of spectacular. Sterling has architectural as well as building expertise and so was able to make suggestions, even for revisions of the architect’s plan, that dramatically improved the livability of the dwelling. Sterling also faithfully kept after the punch list after completion, and after final payment, until all items were resolved properly. I can’t imagine a better builder or choice for our project. Being at the project every week to observe the work I can also say Jeremy and his crews were professional, very pleasant and accommodating to work with. This is our 6th house, several with major remodels, and it just doesn’t get any better. If you would like a personal reference I am happy to provide one through Sterling.

We chose Sterling Custom Construction to build our home on Figure 8 Island. Jeremy Bishop was excellent to work with. His background in design was invaluable as we made improvements to our plans as we went along. Jeremy worked with us, not for us. We were happy with his contractors and I was most happy with how we collaborated. Our home turned out perfect for us. Tim and I were very pleased with Sterling Custom Construction and highly recommend.

Jeremy Bishop of Sterling Custom Construction is an outstanding builder and an outstanding person. The workmanship on our home was first rate, whether done by Jeremy personally or by his subs. He is a master at getting quality subs to do their best quality work. But what really has made Jeremy unique has been his follow through. Even though we have been in our house for just over a year, he is always available to make right any issues we uncover.

“Authentic coastal charisma naturally exposes itself through the shiplap trim, sailcloth fans and a rope and cleat railing detail”
