better than anyone"

Key Team Members


It is an important distinction that the owners of the company are on-site and in charge of the project from start to finish. While Capital has additional support, we are basically a two person operation. Your initial meeting will be with Jeff and Dwight and Dwight. In addition, Jeff will be the on-site supervisors throughout the duration of the job. This approach minimizes communication problems and eliminates any "passing the torch" issues.

The following highlights are from recommendation letters written by our customers. We make it our goal to consistently deliver a quality product while making the process enjoyable and stress free for the homeowner; and these letters are a proud testament to our continued success in meeting this goal.

“They REALLY listened to us. As with most of us, I knew what I wanted and what was important to me. Jeff and Dwight did their best to make sure the house was what we wanted – not what was easy for them.”


Anne & David McLain

Savannah Lakes Village - Tara



“During the entire building process, we only made 3 or 4 trips to SLV. Dwight and Jeff always had all of our appointments set up so we could choose everything we needed for the house (roofing, siding, countertops, cabinets, carpet, tile, lighting, plumbing). They also took many pictures of our house in progress and sent them to us regularly.”


Bob and Diana Bricely

Savannah Lakes Village - Tara



“When we visited the house in progress, we were always treated courteously by you, your workers, and the  subcontractors. You were both always available to answer any questions we had during the entire process and most importantly you returned phone calls promptly”


Brian Wilson

Savannah Lakes Village - Monticello


“In a world where so many in the construction industry who seem to be interested only in making an extra dollar – no matter what the unethical methods it might take to get there – Dwight and Jeff both stand out as the all-too-rare builders people can trust.”


Wendy and Dave Linaberry

Savannah Lakes Village - Tara



“The last important piece of the puzzle in new construction concerns what happens after the job is done. We could not have asked for better punch-list service and, even when the issue was not something you were directly responsible for, you followed up with vendors to be sure things were done right.”


George and Jan Burttram

Savannah Lakes Village -
Savannah Point



“They also helped us work within our budget. When we exceeded allotted amounts, we were made aware of the increase. When we were below allotments, we knew we would have these funds to use in other areas. A very valuable asset you provided us was the expertise of a decorator. Meeting with her, sharing our preferences, and speaking of what we wanted our home to reflect allowed us to choose colors and materials that added our distinctive touch.”


Jack and Lana Snellgrove

Savannah Lakes Village - Shenandoah

"We were fortunate to find Capital Builders to work with us to fashion our idea of a high efficiency, low maintenance retirement home."


Pam and Stu Whipple

Savannah Lakes Village - Southwind



“Throughout all the construction Jeff Dinos and Dwight Fleming were professional, courteous and always willing to help in any way they could. We are completely satisfied with our home and sunroom addition and would highly recommend Capital Home Builders to any homebuyers.”


Bob & Darlene Kowtko

Savannah Lakes Village - Tara



“As we progressed in the building project, we were happy and sometimes somewhat surprised to see that Capital Builders chose to install top quality where a step down would have been acceptable. You’ll find the process more fun than frustrating and make some new friends along the way.”
