We have had the honor of working with the John Elpers Homes family through a huge home renovation and a build for an extra large garage to house our RV and other toys. We are now in the process of a bath remodel.

You will not find a better family to work with. They are personable, dedicated, hard working and the eye for detail is perfection. They are great to work with.

~Tim and Karen Walthall

John Elpers Homes was great to work with!  They helped us from start to finish and made the process of building a new home easy.  Before we started, other people who have built homes, warned us that it is really difficult and stressful.  With John Elpers and his team, it was actually a very enjoyable process. 

have to say, that John, himself, went the extra mile and even helped us with things outside the scope of work to make the home building experience more rewarding and in the end, we got a very beautiful home!!  We highly recommend John Elpers homes for anyone considering having a new home built.

~Joe & Jo Ann Kiefer

When we weren't finding the home we were imagining, we decided to explore building one. Gen 3 wasn't the first builder we met with, but when we did meet with Gen 3, we knew we had found the right people to build our home. They made the process as smooth as possible. Anytime we had questions about design or the finishings of the home, the Gen 3 crew was readily available and able to offer assistance.

Not only was our home completed timely, but we couldn't be more pleased with the finished product. We highly recommend meeting with Gen 3 to those looking at building a home.

~Brandon and Ashley

We selected John Elpers Homes because we wanted the job done right with attention to detail and high quality in every phase of the construction process.

That is exactly what we got.

If we were to build again, John Elpers would be our only option.

~Jim & Leslee Gribbins

The bottom-line result is the home of our dreams that we now live in, completed six months after construction started—on time and on budget. Overall, this home construction project was a very positive experience, made possible by what Jonathan and the entire Gen 3 Contracting organization stand for. Without hesitation, we would build again with Jon Elpers and Gen 3.

After meeting with John and his wife Annette for the first time, I knew they were the ones I wanted to build our home.  We sat down and started working through the details.  John’s daughter, Brittani was in charge of guiding us through the process of planning and designing our home to exactly what we had envisioned!

It wasn’t any easy task, as our son is disabled and uses a power wheelchair. 

John Elpers Homes designed our home to be fully accessible for my son while maintaining the beauty, which we desired.  Literally, people driving on our street or walking by will come to the front door and ask “We love your home, Who built it?”

~Wayne, Jill, Ben and Josh Trockman

"From the moment we sat down with John Elpers, we felt confident that we had found someone we could trust to build our home. As first-time builders we relied heavily on John's knowledge and experience, and throughout the process we found that he possessed a unique ability to provide strong guidance and advice while still making our goals and wishes the top priority.  

Beyond John's great partnership and quality workmanship, another huge benefit to working with him is his family.  Annette and Brittani were helpful and responsive any time we had questions, and Jonathan provided incredible finishing work and was another great resource when we needed advice.  We have already recommended John Elpers Homes to friends and family, and will continue to do so based on our great experience."

John Elpers and Gen 3 built our home in 2020. We have had no issues thus far. We LOVE our home. Great job and it was fairly done quick. Very customer oriented, attention to detail and not just professional but very nice people in general. Thank you! - William M.

This company is amazing! They will be there by your side from start to finish. The after care is even amazing. They genuinely care about their clients and go above and beyond the call of duty. Their attention to detail is immaculate and their friendliest is spot on every time. We are extremely happy with them and building a new home was stress free for my husband and myself thanks to them. I would use them again. Highly recommend. - Kim B.
