The thought of building a home was overwhelming; until we found Pine Ridge Homes and met Melba Petroline!

After a weighing a variety of options, we purchased the Davis display home in Litchfield, Illinois from Melba. She was amazing! Every question or concern was personally addressed by her in a timely manner. We were guided through each step of the process with her professional and experienced hand.

Not only did Melba make herself readily available to us, but also the owner of Pine Ridge Homes, Kevin, was often on site and always a phone call away. They were always willing to share past success stories, make suggestions, and explore options with us, as we made decisions. Not to mention, they made sure each job was completed according to their top notch standards.

We were a bit nervous about what was ahead, as neither of us had built a home. Our fears were always put to ease. Melba and Kevin organized an amazing group of experienced workers to move and set our home. Then, an outstanding team of contractors, plumbers, and electricians were sent to see our project to the end and make our house the lovely home it is!

The Davis model was purchased at the end of April. Thanks to the precise planning, timing, professionalism, and organization of the team hired, my husband and I were living in our home by the middle of July (Earlier than the anticipated ending date)!

Melba and Kevin went above and beyond to ensure the quality of all work, and professionalism which resulted in the home of our dreams!

Hi Kevin,

Dean Weaver and his crew just left. They did a great job. They were very respectful of me and my new home. They did an excellent job of mending the few things that needed to be fixed. They even found a few things that needed adjusting while they were here.

They were very thorough and did an excellent job!

We had such a great experience and still after 6 years, we are very happy with our choice!† We have had absolutly no problems, our house and it's structure are buildt strong.

~ Jennifer Wesselmann

I don't think we ever thanked you for all you did for us and our home.† We love it and it has already expanded with our new daughter, Morgan, who was born in July.† Although we don't have everything done yet, you can see from the pictures that we've added some landscaping and a deck.† We hope you enjoy the pics.† Thanks again!

Everyone at Pine Ridge was just great.† From helping me design my plans, to finishing the little details.† They are a great group to work with.† I have gotten so many compliments on the home, and I really love it...
~ Chris Graumenz

Kevin and the staff at Pine Ridge exceeded any expectations we could have had of a homebuilder.† I was most impressed that Kevin contacted me when he heard we were wanting to build, and explained how he could build the custom home that we were wanting.† We had heard that all home building projects have their hiccups, but I can honestly say that we didnít have any.† I attribute that to the contact that Kevin, Mike, Connie, and Charlie kept with both my wife and I.† The excellent communication kept the whole process very smooth and stress free.† Thank you,

Kevin and all the Pine Ridge Group,

Just a " little" note to say a " Big" thanks for making our dream house become to reality.† I really don't think there is a one Single thing we love the best, but lets see...

"The Open Loft" - Beautiful, its almost my favorite spot in the house.† I love to set up there with a good book of course.† All the natural light from the wonderful windows on one whole end of the house makes it a great reading spot.† We just love the whole openess that the house exudes.

I could go on and on but I will stop.† Just know that we could not have done it with out everyone of you.† A little input and suggestion from everyone helped someone who couldn't visualize the final outcome until now... when all we can say is WOW!† More than we ever anticipated.

Thanks again,
~ Sandy and Ric Kitzmiller

After living in the house for about a year, enjoying it very much.† Getting lots of compliments and would do it all over again.

Thank you,
~ Wayne and Ermilie

I have been in my home for three years now and I love it more every day.† Our Duplex meets all of my home needs.† I would recommend Pine Ridge Homes to anyone considering building a new home and duplex living to anyone considering downsizing for a more convenient lifestyle.

~ Grace Etcheson

I am very happy with my new home. Thank you all for your help with the building and finishing construction on my house. And it's great to know that you are still close by and willing to help with anything that I would need in the future. The quality of the house is great. That is why I recommended you to my son when he decided to look for a home also.
