A BRIEF HISTORY
Vernon has lived in Pagosa Springs for over 30 years and calls this his hometown. He began his career in the building industry over 20 years ago as an apprentice in interior woodworking. He learned this trade well and began his own trim company a few years later. His trim company was known as VL Trim which was very successful. While he was running VL Trim he was posed an opportunity to become more involved with the Custom Home business and he became the superintendent for a well known builder. He took advantage of this opportunity and was able to learn the custom homes building process from customer input to the handling of professional subs. All this experience was what gave him the desire to put this into practice and to perfect what he had learned and to open Custom Homes by Vernon Leslie.
A WORD FROM VERNON
Since 2008, when Custom Homes by Vernon Leslie officially took flight, my work has provided much satisfaction. Not just for myself, but for our clients as well. Working alongside my clients to help make their dreams of a beautiful custom home a reality is truly fulfilling. I also appreciate having the privilege of working with all of my very talented subcontractors. It's my honor to work with you and your family and to provide the custom home you deserve.
We know that building any home can be quite the nerve-racking experience. Contrary to that thinking, we here at CHVL believe that it can be quite fulfilling. We don't want you to just take our word for it, we want you to hear from customers just like yourself. Take a moment to read about their experience, and hopefully we can add your story here sometime soon!
Vernon's ability to visualize and conceptualize a design is huge. He has foresight and was able to bring all of our thoughts together. We utilized this attribute often. There were many instances where we could not "see" a design. You always brought the overall concept together and made it work.
Rob & Diana Leroy
Over a two year period we embarked a series of renovations that redefined our overall investment in our property. Vernon’s creativeness, initiative and delivery of comprehensive services (that were largely handled remotely and on a handshake) made the effort a complete success and painless experience.
David & Terri Mendez
After our house fire we very uncertain which direction to go with our rebuild. We had a unique situation and Vern stepped in and helped us with many decisions we were unable to make on our own. His attention to detail not only focused on the cosmetic side of our home but to the energy efficiency as well.
Ross & Stacey Lewis
Vernon and his staff have also done an outstanding job of staying on top of costs so we can make good decisions on whether we want to stay on budget or splurge on an extra. Unlike some of the building horror stories we've heard of, our project has been alot of fun. If we were to build another house, we would use CHVL again without hesitation.
Custom Homes by Vernon Leslie is a very professional company. I have worked for them in the capacity of a sub contractor, and recommend them highly. Their attention to detail and their determination to do the best job possible for their clients, places them a cut above other construction companies I have worked with.
CHVL kept the construction site clean, kept me informed of what and when they were doing each portion of the construction, and handled the changes I made in an excellent manner. I would recommend them to anyone building a home. While my building was a relatively small job for Mr. Leslie, he treated me as well as the 6000 sq. ft. homes he was building.
