"Lori and I built our Walnut Cove home in Arden,NC with Butch Heatherly in 2009-2010. Because we were still living in PA we had reservations about building the home long-distance but are pleased to report that our reservations were quickly diminished by the professionalism and helpfulness displayed by Butch. He provided us with weekly details, often included photos, and provided a checklist with dates for decisions we needed to make to keep the project on track. Butch would send us helpful reminders and offer options of suppliers. He even got involved with suppliers to help us get the best possible price on the items we selected. Because of Butch’s vast background in construction he was very helpful in making sure the work was done properly and on schedule. We have built several houses in the past and know that no project of this size comes without problems. Amazingly, we can honestly say that unlike all the other projects we were able to resolve matters with Butch without the extra attitude we experienced with others. If you want a builder who is knowledgeable, capable, honest, and looking out for your best interest then Butch Heatherly is who you should choose."

"After a thorough interview process we chose Heatherly Construction because of the open, fair and full cost detailing and the reputation that Mr Heatherly enjoys in our community in Hendersonville, NC. During the construction period, Mr Heatherly adapted to the requirement of dealing with our NYC based architect. Our home has many unusual features. We can say that the workmanship of his sub-contractors was of the highest quality. The adherence to our plans and intent was consistent. The inevitable change orders were discussed fully and costs detailed before any work commenced. When, during the construction phase, an issue of drainage from our proerty to the homes below us arose, he jumped on his Bobcat and promptly solved the issue. He is a hands-on manager and is not averse to adding his own skill set to the job at hand. Further, the punch list was addressed systematically and carefully over the ensuing months after we took occupancy. Lastly, Mr. Heatherly stands behind his work and is available when and if an issue has to be addressed. We can also say that we count him and his wife as friends, which after an 18 month construction period says a lot!"

"We first became acquainted with Butch about 5 years ago when we purchased a spec home he was beginning in the Cliffs at Walnut Cove. As it was early in construction, just after the foundation was poured, we wanted to make some changes to more suit our lifestyle. To our pleasant surprise the changes were incorporated and plans completed by 9:00 am the next morning. We returned home to Calif. leaving everything in Butch's hands. With just one more visit part way through to finalize finishes, paint, granite and such, the house was completed just ahead of schedule and everything was done right. When we finally sold our home in So. Calif., and were able to make the move east, we once again called on Butch. Needless to say his experience and knowledge coupled with his honesty has made this second time just as easy. We are looking forward to moving into our new home this fall."

"Building a custom home on a challenging lot could have been a stressful situation, but utilizing your services made the process enjoyable and rewarding. Your ability to assemble the best artisans and subcontractors in the region, along with your superior building knowledge, produced a quality house that stands out in Champion Hills. From our initial meeting to the completion of the project you were a true professional that handled building our house with the care, attention to detail and integrity that we were seeking in a builder. The finished product was crafted to ensure our satisfaction and truly reflected the vision we had for a mountain home. We highly recommend your services and would not hesitate to have you build another home for us. Thank you for making this home a reality."

“After meeting with Butch Heatherly and visiting a number of his recent projects, Rhonda and I decided to select him as our builder. We liked many of the design features that Butch incorporates into his homes and could see examples of workmanship and materials that we liked. We found Butch to be enjoyable and easy to work with throughout the project. We often relied on his judgment and experience and many of the final material and design decisions were made collaboratively with him. The final result is a home we really like and enjoy. After three years our home is still like new and we welcome others to view our home as an example of his good work.”
"It is now a year since you completed the make over of our screened in porch to an all-seasons room. The bottom line; we could not be happier with your excellent work and the projects outcome. We moved into our house about five years ago to find the porch of limited use with the frequent rains and spring pollen counts that limited its year round use. Eventually, after several conversations with an architect, an interior designer and some of your earlier customers, we contracted with you for a price and start date. During the design planning, the demolition and finished construction, you were regularly on site and available for consults when we wanted to refine certain aspects of the project. Linda and I appreciated your input and participation with our interior designer to find some cost savings and design improvements. ...... view full letter "

"It was our good fortune when our friend and architect recommended Heatherly Construction for the rebuilding and additions to our home. Their approach was novel to us at the time; beginning with reinforcement of the foundations, they removed the 105-year-old siding and diagonal sheathing on the core house, inspected plumbing and wiring in the exterior walls, then insulated, sheathed, wrapped and sided the house with modern Hardi-plank sding. New energy efficient windows and the two new, attached rooms completed the exterior.....view full letter "

"Mary Ann and I have been living in our new home since the day after Christmas. We are extremely happy with the way you and your sub-contractors have worked with us during all the phases of the construction. You have listened to our ideas and concerns as well as giving us your ideas that made this home a real home......view full letter "
