Elite Craft Homes
At Elite Craft Homes we realize that the homeowner is our number one priority. We truly believe that our main concern in building homes is creating a “satisfied” customer. We realize that any success we have year to year, will be from the number of jobs we obtain from referrals and repeat buyers.
So, our goal is to make your building experience the best possible. We attribute our success to this philosophy, and to our dedicated group of employees who understand this principle and take pride in creating the best possible building experience.
Founder, Managing Partner, President
Jerry has been building quality custom homes in Utah for over 25 years. Jerry is very respected in the building industry having served as President of the Northern Wasatch Home Builders Association and been a member of its executive board for more than a decade. He is known throughout the industry for his honesty and integrity, and believes that a homeowner should receive the highest quality and service rendered from the expertise of a contractor. Jerry’s number one focus has always been creating “satisfied” customers, which explains why some people have had Jerry build them multiple homes.
Trent has worked for or with his father (Jerry) since 1997, and has always had a passion for building homes. As a young boy he used to tell everyone that when he grew up he was going to be a “home maker”, and for the most part that came true. Trent has overseen the construction of many homes ranging from high end custom homes to entry level starter homes, and has an eye for helping people design and create exactly what they want in a home. Trent earned his bachelor degree in Business Administration/Marketing in 2008 from Weber State University.
Bill much like Jerry has been building homes for more than two decades. He is widely considered one of the best construction managers in the state, having spent his entire working career building everything from entry level starter home communities to high-end custom homes. Bill is an expert in nearly every phase of construction, making him an invaluable part of our company. Bill has often said that when all the dust settles, the best part of building homes is helping people make their dream home become a reality.

We build – What you want – Where you want!
At Elite Craft Homes we have unique approach to building homes. Unlike the majority or our competition, you are not limited to our plans and our communities – we will build what you want, where you want. In order to outline how this works we have provided a few steps.
The first step is to “Find a Lot” We understand that when it comes to buying a home, location truly is everything, and we are committed to helping you build your home where you want to live. So with that in mind these are your options:
- We will build on “Your Lot” – Many of you may have found the perfect place to live and have already purchased a building lot. Over the last few years the majority of our work has come from building homes for people who already have a building lot.
- We can build your home on “Our Lot” – If you don’t have a building lot, we may have one for you.
- We can help you “Find a Lot” – If we don’t have the right location and you haven’t purchased a building lot, we can help you find one.
Elite Craft Homes is a custom builder, meaning we can change, modify, or tweak any plan in order to build exactly what you are looking for. This gives you the freedom to add on or take out any feature – there by creating the perfect home. We can also help you design your dream home from scratch.
Can I make changes to a floor plan?
If I don’t love the selections you have for (carpet, tile, cabinets, etc.) can I go find my own?
Do I have to pick from the plans on your website?
I have a relative that is a plumber, can I have them do the plumbing in my home instead of your subcontractor?
Does the cost of the home include landscaping?
Do you have a fee that you charge just to bid my set of plans?
From start to finish how long will it take to build my home?
What is the warranty included with my new home?
Will you finish a basement? or are you just interested in new homes?
I already have a building lot, would you be willing to give me a price for a home on my lot?
How much money do I need to put down?
How do I know how much I qualify to borrow?
Who will I be dealing with from day to day during construction?
We had Jerry Preston with Elite Craft Homes build our home for the 2003 Northern Wasatch Parade of Homes. This was our 2nd home built by Jerry Preston. It was such a great experience the first time, there was no question who would build us our dream home. They have stood behind their product and have been exceptional with warranty items. Anyone looking for an experienced builder, I would highly recommend Elite Craft Homes.

Our home-buying experience was awesome! Elite Craft Homes not only honored the ‘expired’ free upgrades they had listed on their web page when we negotiated the terms of the home purchase, but they honored all commitments they made (bending over backwards to make sure we were completely satisfied). My wife and I were on a constricted time schedule in which to get our home built, and Elite Craft Homes came through at every turn. The home was finished on time, and was built to the highest quality!
We have been in the home for 18 months now, and the service after sell is just as stellar as the home building experience itself. They even contacted us to perform a ‘one-year inspection’ to make sure everything was as we hoped. The only drawback to having them build us such a wonderful house, which will be our home for many years to come, was that now we will not be able to have them build us a home again in the near future.

We had an excellent experience building our home with Elite Craft Homes. Right from the beginning we felt comfortable with them as they worked with us from the initial planning and design right up through the final inspection and beyond. They did what they said they would do and stayed within budget (no hidden surprises). They are honest, reliable, and fair and we would definitely build with them again. We love our home!

We have been in our home 2 months and love it. Elite Craft Homes made building a great experience.They listened to what we wanted and made it all come together at a price we could afford. After looking for months for a place to call home it was so great to find a builder that went above and beyond our expectations.
