Jeremy had 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 worked with us to solve problems and helped us stay within 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.

We chose Sterling Custom Construction, LLC 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. LLC and highly recommend them.

As a custom home designer, I had the opportunity to work with Jeremy and our client, the homeowner, on a modern beach house in Surf City, NC. Working with a builder who can understand design intent and successfully accomplish it was wonderful. The quality and finishes turned out great, and custom-designed features were not a problem for his team to execute. Highly recommended.

Absolute attention to detail in renovating our home! Jeremy thought of things we had not considered during the re-construction which saved us money and time in the long run. He re-used many materials we thought were not salvageable, which also saved us money. We feel that Jeremy took the same care with our home, as he would have with his own home. The quality of his work is excellent, and he chooses his subcontractors with care for the same level of excellence. We were absent during the construction, but Jeremy kept us up to date almost daily with photos and phone calls. His interior suggestions for lighting, flooring, cabinets, etc., made it seem as if he were our own interior designer!
We could not be more pleased with our new home and are enjoying it! We would not hesitate to recommend Sterling Custom Construction, LLC for new construction or a renovation.


One of the greatest challenges when building a custom home is finding a general contractor who can communicate with your design people. Jeremy Bishop’s design background eliminates the communication problem, making collaboration a pleasure. The Sterling Custom Construction, LLC “hands-on” approach means that every detail of a project gets the attention it needs for a seamless total project. We are privileged to be part of the Sterling Custom Construction, LLC team on these great projects.

The work went very well. We were impressed by each member of the remodeling team. We did have the painter repaint the room again, but that was because the paint color we had chosen didn’t coordinate as well with the glass tile as we thought it would (the painter was very good about the switch, by the way). The work itself spanned roughly four weeks due to some delays resulting from some illnesses among the workers or from shipment schedules. All in all, we thought that the work time was reasonable. Jeremy was accessible throughout the remodel and did some of the final touches himself.


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, LLC! First of all, he got us in our home in 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!

Jeremy Bishop of Sterling Custom Construction. LLC 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.

Creative Custom Woodworks

I requested the services of Sterling Custom Construction, LLC to design and build our primary residence. Jeremy provided a smooth process from start to finish. His ability in design and experience in remodeling brought a great deal of knowledge to the project. I wanted to build a home that is structurally superior and energy efficient, as well as accessible as we aged. I am a licensed general contractor. I had given a lot of thought over the years as to components and methods to use in our new home. Jeremy has a vast knowledge of the construction industry. I highly recommend his services. We are very pleased with the outcome. As with any project, there were a few follow-up items. These were taken care of in a very timely manner. Hats off to Sterling Custom Construction, LLC.

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 Custom Construction, LLC. 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 Custom Construction, LLC 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 liveability of the dwelling. Sterling Custom Construction, LLC 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 Custom Construction, LLC.

From the design of our one-of-a-kind, custom-built home by Sterling Custom Construction, LLC to the completion, we are so pleased and proud to be in our new home in The Bluffs at Cape Fear. A lot of creativity was shown from the initial floor plan adding an extra-sized master bedroom/bath, huge master closet, and an exceptionally large laundry room making my wife’s dream come true. Almost daily, we witnessed the progress of Jeremy and his great team building this beautiful well-constructed home. As the structure was being built, it was amazing to see how clean the property was maintained from one contractor to the next. Jeremy’s talent of keeping one abreast of the progress and workflow attributed to his ability of great planning and scheduling. It made the process of building a new home very exciting, knowing that this was going to be our final destination. We would highly recommend Jeremy and Sterling Custom Construction, LLC to build your ‘palace’ without any hesitation, for the final result will be the home that you dreamed of.

Jeremy designed a stunning, southern, low-country, waterfront home for my wife and me. His construction knowledge, experience, and understanding provides a beautiful ambiance every day that we love. He listened and carefully created a home that we cherish. We are very satisfied customers and would use him again and again and again.


I have worked with Jeremy as a fellow design professional for several years. Now, as a custom home builder, I have had the opportunity to collaborate with him on a few projects. Jeremy has shown that he can produce a high-quality, well-crafted home. He works well with design professionals and listens and responds to clients’ needs as they arise during the construction process. I would recommend Jeremy’s company, Sterling Custom Construction, LLC, for any of my design projects!
