Tate Locke and his crew at Cristee-Meade did a wonderful job on our house. The house timeline ran as scheduled and it was completed on time. The quality of the workmanship was excellent.

My experience with Locke Construction, now Cristee-Meade, was and continues to be exceptional. True professionals in every sense of the word, from the overall picture to the smallest detail. Design, innovation, communication, knowledge…they have it all. It was a pleasure to work with them.

They are very cordial “and” professional. The workmanship is superb. I am sure they could do tract homes, but they don’t need to. Their craftsmanship makes their custom homes real things of beauty. They keep up to date on new trends and new materials and techniques. I had them do a commercial remodel for me, but I am in the real estate business and have seen several of their large custom homes. They are all works of art.

Cristee-Meade provided a complete bid for the project. They have a good data base of what material and labor cost are and they draw from it to provide the bid. The finished project came in very close to the bid even though we made changes.

Cristee-Meade was always willing to explore different options at any point in the project. They were very accommodating and able to give good ideas for improvement and change. They always focused on our satisfaction. Locke Construction from Tate and Julie down to the new employee were very respectful to us and our property. The job site was clean and orderly. In our opinion Cristee-Meade is the best choice a home owner can make to create a dream home. This was done for us within the time frame promised.

Cristee-Meade helped us tweak the house plans we found online and then built our home, which turned out beautifully. We wanted a Craftsman-style home, both inside and out, and Tate understood and was enthusiastic about that style. We were nervous about having the house built while still living in a different state, and there were no other builders in Cedaredge we trusted to build our home “long-distance.” Cristee-Meade has taken care of any issues that arose, either during construction or since we moved in.

I have worked in a professional capacity with Cristee Meade for several years and was immediately inspired with their creativity, innovation, and vision. The fact that it is a family business with a proven track record is reflected in the pride and workmanship of their product. They take the time and utilize their expertise and experience in order to make each home or project reflect each client’s unique visions and needs. The quality of their work and attention to detail gave us great confidence in hiring them for a variety of projects in our personal home, The value and functionality of our home has increased with their input and involvement, and they will be our first choice for all future construction projects
