We currently live in Evans, Georgia and are preparing to retire in the upcoming summer. We have known for several years that we wanted to retire in the Southwestern region of the United States-in a place with beautiful scenery, wonderful weather for outdoor activities, low crime, and great people. The St. George, Utah area continued to be a place we visited, and last year, we decided to move forward with our retirement plans. Having no contacts west of Georgia, we were faced with the task of finding someone to help us make our dream a reality. Our realtor, Laura Taylor, introduced us to Seth Foster and the wheels were set in motion. We knew Dixie Springs was the area in which we wanted to build our home, but more importantly, we quickly realized that Seth and Shem Foster were the builders we were willing to entrust. Bob Raybould helped us secure an ideal lot, and Design Consultant, Yvonne Christensen, discussed options with us. Over the next three months, we primarily dealt with the American Heritage Homes’ team from 2100 miles away. We were pleasantly surprised at the ease of this process. Seth and Shem were always available to us. Yvonne kept in constant contact through email and phone calls. Her keen ability to understand our interests was amazing, and her ideas and suggestions were perfectly suited for our tastes. During this time, we traveled to Utah twice for our pre and final walk-throughs. Both times, Shem spent time with us walking through our house and making sure that we were satisfied. Yvonne met with us and reviewed our selections. Bob offered his time and agreed to keep an eye on our house. We truly appreciate the workmanship, professionalism, and caring attitude that the American Heritage Homes’ team showed us during the construction process and beyond. We are very anxious to be permanent residents of Utah and reside in our beautiful new home. See Y’all Soon!
We love our new American Heritage home. We are looking forward to moving in in a few weeks. AHH is an amazing team to work with. All subcontractors have been professional and meticulous in their work. They captured our dream home vision and have worked hard to ensure it has a high standard of quality and beauty.
Quality home builder with excellent customer service.
The AHH team just completed our house in Hurricane in August, 2016 and they did an excellent job. We live in California and when we started the building process, we heard all the horror stories about trying to build a house ""long distance"" but AHH made sure that none of that happened.There were a few hiccups along the way but that's to be expected for this type of project. Communication is the key factor for a successful job like this and, even for the hiccups, they were on top of it all the way.
And one more sign of a professional organization is that, even now, after the job is done, they are just as responsive to our needs and questions as before. They really do care to do a good job!
We can't say enough good things about AHH and their professional staff and will recommend them to anyone who want to build a home in our area.
So far so good, we've only just begun the process. But Tracee has been very kind, patient and helpful. As we are still in paperwork I cannot attest to the build yet.
Want to thank American Heritage and their whole team on completion of our new home...Bill, Curtis, Chris, Brandy, Maggie, Emily and Suzy were all very kind and helpful and made this build nearly stress free...They welcomed us into the American Heritage family and let us know afterwards that if we needed anything to contact them anytime...thanks again Randy and Cathy !!!
I had heard many positive things about American Heritage homes through reliable sources but didn't know a home builder could meet let alone go above and beyond my expectations. I knew right after meeting with the owners Shem & Seth and their building team that I was in good hands for my very first custom home build. Everything from the beginning stages, they took time to drive me around to several of their existing homes and homes in production to give me ideas on floor plans and then took time to go over in great detail to customize my plan accordingly. Since then I've met in person to go over details for interior: (paint, finishes, cabinetry, flooring, fixtures, window treatments etc.) and exterior options and details (lighting, cement color and texture, landscaping etc.), they've been very thorough and have kept me in the loop of things on a weekly basis! My Mind is definitely at ease knowing I can trust such a reputable team. This has been such a positive experience for me and I'm looking forward to move in day, in my new American Heritage home. I totally recommend anyone building in Southern Utah to come visit the American Heritage team!
Really loved working with American Heritage Homes. They took right over with my clients and worked through everything. They were honest and had a lot of integrity. My clients were thrilled with their new home and are impressed with the quality and care that was given to them. They love it there.
For months, we had been looking for housing in the St George area. On one fateful trip we decided to take a spur of the moment drive that proved to be providence for us. We went to have a look at the Sand Hollow Reservoir as neither of us had seen it yet. Approaching Dixie Springs Road we saw all the for sale signs and so we turned east toward the beautiful houses. We were immediately struck with the beauty, the quiet of the area due to the lack of traffic, and the amount of friendly smiles and waves we got from folks there!We went to the first model home we saw and almost bought from another builder but missed out on the purchase of a ready built new house - sold as we were actually on the way to close the deal. Providence number two this was because with the news of having lost that deal we shrugged our shoulders and walked right into the model home of AHH where we met Seth.
We looked at a home they were building but opted out and it was then we started talking about building our own home. We were delighted while going through the planning process because we were able to build a house to exactly the specifications we envisioned. Soon we were watching our dream retirement home being built. From the beginning stages of planning the home with Seth and Yvonne to bothering Shem and Nephi and everyone else through the construction process, everyone was very helpful.
Thank you all at AHH for all the patience, attention to the detail of planning and building our home, and for working so hard to make the timing of the closing happen as we needed for financing purposes. And thank you so very much for the beautiful house we now inhabit. It was an amazing process to behold and we look forward to many years of happiness in our new home.
We would absolutely recommend AHH to any of our friends and family looking for housing. Everyone there is very down to earth, thoughtful, helpful, considerate, and patient as they work with you throughout the entire process. We believe anyone would be happy as we are in a home that will exceed your expectations.
I sold an American Heritage Home to one of my clients and it was an almost perfect home. It was well built and the buyer loved the floor plan. The builder was great to work with.
My husband and I just finished building our first home together and we couldn't be more happier with the way it turned out! American Heritage nailed our ideas and made them come alive! From the moment we walked in to their office, till they left us with our keys we had an amazing adventure building our forever home! Thank you American Heritage for everything!!!!!
We had a custom home built with American Heritage last year and couldn’t be happier. We had a lot of needs and they met every one! The entire process went flawlessly, all of the contractors were professional and efficient. We used the Butler floor plan and they drew up an in law suite for us. I would highly recommend checking them out if your wanting to build a home.
The owners of American Heritage are great folks to work with. They are well organized, and are generally responsive. They worked with us on many issues and stood behind their work after we moved in. We feel they are honest and hard working. We had some issues and they worked hard to make us happy. We are pleased with the overall construction. We have issues with the flooring which was the result of the work by the subcontractor, but we would highly recommend this builder to others.
AHH recently built an AMAZING pool in our backyard! From start to finish they met deadlines on time. They communicated with us almost everyday, letting us know what to expect next. We would highly recommend them to our friends and family!
They build a home for my very elderly parents which sometimes can be difficult. This company worked very close with them and were very accommodating and respectful. They love their home !
I just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thanks again for a smooth transaction on the Dixie Springs home that Seth & Shem Foster built. As always, they delivered a quality home that was perfectly suited for my clients. We appreciated the timely response to our punch list from the final inspection and their willingness to meet with us even with everybody’s hectic schedules. I look forward to working with Seth & Shem on another transaction in the future! Thanks again!
After spending time in the model we felt that this particular style of home, coupled with cost, location and available features made American Heritage Homes an easy choice to build our Southern Utah home. We were most impressed by the ability for American Heritage Homes to adhere to the planned schedule and budget throughout the entire project. Our custom home was built in 14 weeks. The project came in on budget with absolutely NO surprises exceeding our expectations in every way. Lastly, it is quite apparent the American Heritage Homes' top priority is the quality of workmanship and materials used in the construction process, leading to your total satisfaction with your new home.
Very informative. Hopefully we get to build their home.
We love our American Heritage Home! After moving to St George we searched and searched for a home builder who built quality homes without charging ridiculous prices and American Heritage Homes fit the bill. Seth and Shem are awesome to work with. We had a vision about how we wanted our home to look and they helped that come to life." Their attentive nature to every detail helped us realize our dreams. It seems amazing to us that we own this gorgeous home in this amazing area. But, we know that we couldn't have done it without American Heritage Homes. We would recommend them to anyone!
When my wife and I qualified a builder for our most recent home, our primary considerations were quality of build and integrity. Seth & Shem came very highly recommended in both regards. No construction project will be perfect. A contractors' ability to foresee potential problems and eliminate them, along with how they respond when a problem arises - is what sets them apart. Shem and Seth are very detail oriented, and at the same time maintain schedules. When problems came up they presented us with the options, their recommendations and let us choose how to move forward. Very professional but with a personal touch. I have no problem recommending AHH!
American Heritage Homes built us a new home in Dixie Springs. It was built on time and service was extremely good. I would highly recommend. Note, everyone was great to work with; and special note, Todd is a great asset as corrections needed to be done as they always have to. I just called and it was taken care of.
Great builder!!! Made our first build an exceptional experience. They made the whole thing a lot easier than expected. Will use them again for my parents house and highly recommend them for Price, Customer Satisfaction, and more...
We had been looking in to building a home in southern Utah. We had been looking all around the St. George area. American Heritage Homes, came highly recommended by many people. So we called Seth Foster, and met with him. We explained what we were looking for. We took one of their plans, and made our own changes. It turned out beautiful!! We met with their recommended Mortgage Company. It is finally finished! We just received our keys yesterday. They were great to work with! Looked forward each week, for our call from Yvonne, their Design Consultant. She let us know what they were doing each week. She was GREAT! We would recommend them, to do any projects you may have. Still having things needed to be looked into, but that is expected with a new house.
Excellent builder with quality customer service and beautiful homes! Although building a home is always stressful, and even more so when you do it from a distance as we did, the American Heritage Homes staff went above and beyond to make our home building experience memorable and as easy on us as possible (not to mention exciting)! They built us an amazing, beautiful, high quality home with everything we asked for and then some! We have been in our dream home for nearly a year now, and they have continued to provide quality customer service. When a few of our windows got drafty and granite caulking split due to the natural settling of the house, AHH was out with their contractors within a week to make everything perfect again! They have also been extremely helpful answering our questions via phone or email from the beginning (Brandi and Curtis especially). They also have a very honest and down-to-earth approach to everything, which helped to put us at ease and keep us well-informed every step of the way. We absolutely love our American Heritage Home and all of their staff!
Great people especially Suzanne
We had been looking for a good builder to build our home. We are from up north and were a little cautious about choosing a builder. Our in-laws had just built a new home and when we went to see it, along with seeing the American Heritage model home and the costs involved, we were impressed and approached American Heritage to build our home. We initially worked with Seth to formulate the plans for our home. We also worked with their architect and Seth contributed ideas as we went along. When the building started, Shem took over. He mans the building part of the home. We found both Seth and Shem great to work with. When we had changes that needed to be addressed, they were amiable and worked with us on them. Our neighbor next door watched as the home was being built and said that it was very good workmanship and he was amazed at how fast the home went up. He had built two homes himself. Shem had contractors lined up and it went very smoothly. There wasn’t hardly a day that went by when someone wasn’t working on it. We have had many complements regarding our home. The home has a good warrantee and we have called if anything was not right or needed to be fixed according to the plans, they immediately took care of it. We are really enjoying our new home. We love it, thank you to Seth, Shem and all the folks at American Heritage here in St. George, Utah.
American Heritage homes has been a pleasure to work with. They are all about high quality in everything they do and put extra emphasis on keeping you informed on progress. Their willingness to be truly open to customization's is amazing and everyone on their team has been very friendly, honest and caring. Of all the different builders there are to choose from in Southern Utah you will be hard pressed to find one better than American Heritage homes!
We looked throughout the St George area to build a house. We did not want an HOA and wanted a little bit of a yard. But more than anything we wanted a good builder. We happened upon Dixie Springs and loved it. The views, the people, and the homes were all what we were looking for. And then we found Seth and Shem at American Heritage Homes. We were so impressed with their professionalism and upbeat attitudes. We loved their homes! They were more than willing to work with us on all of the "little" things that we wanted. We absolutely love our home and would highly recommend them to our friends and family. They proved to be fantastic builders and are great friends!
After shopping several home builders, I found the people at American Heritage to be very straight forward with pricing and features. I spoke with a couple of their references and they loved their new home. They were easy to work with and we got incredible value for our money. They were even willing to explain some finer points of home construction that interested me particularly. Highly recommended!.
Hi my name is Brion Egan and my wife is DeAnna. We are getting ready to retire and wanted to escape the cold Idaho winters that we experience here. We liked the St George area and it was close enough to home if we needed to come back for a day or two we could. We decided to build in Dixie Springs because it was close to a lot of different recreation and liked the neighborhood. We have a close family and when one plays all the kids and grandkids want to come and be apart of it too. We started our original home with American Heritage Homes in late spring of 2012. After interviewing several contractors I felt the most comfortable with Seth and Shem. They completed the home in excellent time and the workmanship and working relationship with them was excellent. Then, realizing after the first outing with our family we had under built and needed more bedrooms and room for the Grandkids, we needed to expand. I was able to buy the lot next to me and asked Seth and Shem to build me an addition onto the original home because we were so pleased with their work on the home. I was a general contractor in Idaho and have been involved in the construction industry for over 25 years. I new what I was looking for in a contractor. Most all contractors have the skills and ability to build and complete the project in a very acceptable manor. They might get to the finished product differently but they will get there never the less. It is the little things that separate Seth and Shem. The addition was very complicated because I did not want it to look like an addition. I wanted it to blend with the original home but yet I had certain ideas of what I needed. They walked with me from start to finish, starting with the design. Their input into the project was invaluable. There was constant communication with Shem during the construction process. He would always call me and ask if it was ok to proceed with a change if it became necessary, also I received several calls with him starting with, "Brion, I think we need to do this, or I really think it would look better if we did this, but always ending with I will do whatever you want. This and many other little things that go unnoticed is what made me so happy with them. Again, their ability to perform the work and their Honesty in their dealings is a fresh and unusual part of the construction industry. My wife Deanna summed it up in one sentence. "THEY ARE AWESOME." I would be glad to visit with anyone who has questions or is seriously considering American Heritage Homes for their next project, Seth or Shem have my number.
We built our home in 2001 # 271 Believe in the scheme of Americans Heritages numbering plan. On poured Walls set to the correct grade and an amazing home. We are 15 years in the home and do not even have a crack in the drywall, which is unheard of. All the hardwood trim is as tight as the day we moved in, 6 panel doors the same. All appliances (Furnace, Hot Water Heater) are still 100% - and best of all NO SQUEAKY FLOORS.If we would do it again - These are the guys !!!!
We have built several homes ourselves and have worked with numerous contractors during our careers, but none have been as professional or have paid attention to detail as American Heritage. What a pleasure to work with this team of building professionals. We have been in our home 1 year and love everything about it. Quality is #1 and during the building and after, they have always been willing to return and assist to our needs. Thanks to Seth, Shem and everyone for your professionalism.
Not only are they home builders they are dream builders. The quality , craftsmanship is truly awe inspiring. They make it very personal and it shows in everything they do! thank you American Heritage Homes for making dreams a reality.
Our experience with American Heritage was seamless and stress free. Seth, Shem and Yvonne were exceedingly helpful and accommodating to the many changes we made to the plans of our house and everything was done on schedule. They responded very quickly to any concerns we had and clearly answered all of our questions. I love our house. Thank you American Heritage.
Seth & Tamara, Thank you both for taking such good care of my clients. I wrote a blog touting American Heritage Homes and I hope it meets your standards! I look forward to doing business with you again.
When shopping for a house we couldn't find a favorite so decided to build and found American Heritage Homes in the neighborhood that we wanted to build. We talked to several residents in the neighborhood and they all claimed that AHH did a fantastic job. So we too had them build our favorite floor plan and we're a week away from closing. They have been great to work with and they communicate almost daily with updates and progress of the home. P.S the builder also lives in the neighborhood. That's been a plus.
We are very happy with the home that American Heritage Homes built for us! It's very high quality work; and they involved us through the entire building process helping us know what the possibilities were, but also letting us make all the decisions. We were excited with some of their suggestions, such as making the crawl space by the upstairs bedrooms a "secret tunnel." Our kids just love it! We thought the positioning of the house and windows was well thought out. These guys are true professionals, honest and easy to work with. We really appreciated the efforts of Seth and Shem in helping us get the enhancements we wanted, but allowing us to keep the entire project as economical as possible. Thanks so much for everything.
American Heritage built our home in Dixie Springs in 2013. I have built 6 homes in my life (3 custom and 3 cookie cutter) and this was by far the most personal and pleasant experience. Cost was fair, after the sale service and quality was excellent. Seth and Shem exceeded my expectations with the sale and build cycles, Yvonne was helpful with interior selections and Josh was excellent in follow up service - always taking care of items without question. What a pleasure that has been. As with all builders using subcontractors, their challenge is to make sure they receive quality workmanship in a timely manner from those subs and they have done a good job with this. Never before have I walked into a finished home and been surprised with extra features that I did not expect; and they provide value in their homes with excellent standards, which allowed us to focus on upgrades that added value instead of being nickel and dimed to death with upgrades like many other builders with low grade standards. These are genuinely good honest people that like and care about people and building homes. I would recommend them without hesitation.
A big shout out to American Heritage Homes for our beautiful new home! Seth and Shem and Yvonne and Todd did a great job for us!
Colin was super
American Heritage was awesome to work with. We were able to work with one project manager through the entire build. We were able to easily modify a standard plan to fit what we wanted. The owner was involved in the process from Pre construction to the final walk through. We had visited several other builders prior to selecting AHH. These other builders used heavy sales tactics, and/or dismissed us as we did all lot prep. American Hertiage Homes we’re down to earth, and transparent. Thank you for being an honest builder and for our beautiful home!
American Heritage Homes is a very professional home builder, they are honest and they build a beautiful home. They don't cut corners. They include their customers in every regard.
Lovely staff and beautiful homes.
We are very pleased with our decision to hire American Heritage Homes to build our dream home. I am one of those homeowners that spent a lot of time on site asking questions and taking photographs. They all have been good to us and accommodated our last minute changes. They are honest, reliable and knowledgeable in their building of quality homes. Not only do you get a great home but you end up adding good friends in your life. Thanks Yvonne and all the guys.
