Customer ReviewsWhat Our Homeowners Are Saying About Us
Thank you, Evergreen Homes NW, for crafting our dream home! We have a beautiful custom home that meets our needs and lifestyle perfectly. We wanted a builder who really delivered outstanding design, quality, craftsmanship, attention to detail, and value. Evergreen has exceeded our expectations on each of our five criteria. The quality of the materials that went into our home matches the quality of the work. We found true craftsmanship and attention to detail in nearly every facet of our home. Most homeowners probably don’t give a second thought to the work done by the framers as their work gets covered up. During a visit, we inspected their work with a framing square, level, and tape measure – we were blown away with the accuracy of their work – floors that are truly level, plumb walls, and square corners! The finish work is equally impressive. We have natural wood doors, windows, and millwork so you cannot mask mistakes with caulk. From excavation to final finish – everything is amazing, and we greatly appreciate the hard work all the trades put into building our dream home. You can tell they care! Our custom design started as a sketch Chris made on a yellow pad while sitting with us on a log on our property. He incorporated everything we wanted and quite a few things we had not even thought about. We were living in Maryland throughout the entire design and build process, yet Chris, Sterling, Linda, Tama, and Lisa made it feel like we were just down the street. Through their outstanding communication, doing a long-distance build was not an issue. Sterling was wonderful in managing the team of craftsmen who built our home. He spent a good amount of time with us during an early visit to understand what was important to us. He then went out of his way to ensure every detail we wanted was simply perfect.
My husband and I consider ourselves very fortunate to have chosen Evergreen Homes as our builder. We lived in eastern Oregon but wanted to move closer to Portland and family, we checked out many builders but from the first contact with Evergreen they were superior. We were very specific in what we wanted in our home and had looked at many floor plans but couldn’t find the exact one we wanted. Working with Chris Sundstrom and his architect/designer, Tama, we were able to incorporate all the features we wanted in a design that perfectly fit our needs. During the entire construction process we received all the help, information and guidance we had hoped for. All of the crews that worked on our home were top quality; we had been very involved in our last home construction and my husband is a skilled handyman so we know a little more than average. Our foreman, Sterling, was absolutely top notch, he is dedicated, personable, a perfectionist and we felt that our home was truly important to him. Linda, who handled all the permits necessary for building on virgin land with a year-round creek, was so professional, calm and persistent, I can’t imagine trying to go through this process on our own. Lisa, who handled all the financial issues was also exemplary, as she navigated us through the process and was always available to take our calls or answer a text. When it came time to chose our finishes, Tama was better than I could have ever hoped for. She has wonderful taste, a great depth of knowledge and was able to take our style and preferences and guide us in choosing tile, flooring, counters, windows, doors, etc. in a way that I have seen on such shows as Property Brothers, but never thought I would have access to. Evergreen Homes was all we had hoped for and we absolutely love our new home!
We have been in our new house for a little over a month and couldn’t be happier. This was our first time building a house and Chris and Sterling made the whole process easy and as stress-free as possible. Chris helped us consider things in our house that we never would have thought about, but now are so happy to have. And now we have our perfect forever home. Thank you to the whole Evergreen team!
We Have been in our home for a year now and are so thankful that we found the perfect lot, great view and Quality Builder that we were looking for. From the design process, material selection and building of the home, Evergreen staff was a joy to work with.
Nick was our project manager and was always available and responsive to our questions and needs. We moved in just before the Covid issues shut down the building process. Having our new home during these trying times has made our life so enjoyable.
We would highly recommend Evergreen Homes NW to anyone looking at building a home in the future.
We are so happy with our home and are still pinching ourselves about how nice it is (and that it was built on time in the heart of the pandemic.) You and your entire family run a first class business and we couldn’t have had a better experience. Thank you!
Conscientious, reliable builder. Pays attention to detail, even makes sure two fit in the shower. Had our home for over a year now and LOVE it. It will be standing strong in generations to come.
We found Evergreen Homes by driving around and looking at all of the homes in our area. Our family wanted something more custom with an RV garage. There are not a lot of homes that have this option with other builders. When we met with Chris all of our needs in a home were met with what his team has to offer. We have now been in our home over a year, and we could not be happier. The quality of our home is amazing! With Evergreen homes your home is truly custom to the way you want it. Thank you Evergreen Homes Team!!”
Got a great home with everything we asked for and wanted. They were right there every step of the way and met every need or request we had with a professional and friendly manner. We got to participate in every design choice and were met with a “can do” attitude whenever we made a change or adjustment. It was the most fun and we’ll never forget it. Thanks again for our forever home.
We moved into our new home built by Evergreen Homes in January. I wanted to wait a few months after moving in to write a review, because I wanted to make sure I was out of the initial “new home bliss” phase and could write a thoughtful review. Well – our new home still makes us feel blissful! We love coming home each day and continue to be impressed with the quality workmanship that is in our home. Tama designed our home’s floor plan especially to fit the particular lot we bought. Her design maximized the available space, and we have tons of windows and awesome views. We did a lot of customization and Chris helped us modify our garage so that our RV will fit inside it. It was a great decision to go with a true custom builder instead of one that only has a few floor plans to choose from. The quality of the home is evident each and every month when our utility bills arrive. They are lower than we expected or could have hoped for. As far as we are concerned – this is our forever home and we are very grateful to Evergreen Homes for building it for us!
I am so thankful that I found Evergreen Homes. Building a custom home is a complicated process, and you need everyone on your team to be extremely competent. From start to finish, the experience with Evergreen Homes was incredible. They designed a modern house for me that looks so original and beautiful, I find myself just staring at it – in awe. The construction process presented challenges at times, such as weather, but the team persisted and constantly managed my expectations. The attention to detail and quality is unmatched. Everyone you work with at Evergreen is very reasonable, transparent, and honest. You know exactly what you’re getting, and they can assist in areas you aren’t familiar with. I can’t imagine doing a project like this with a builder other than Evergreen Homes. Their reputation speaks for itself and once you walk into one of their custom homes, you will understand what makes them so special.
Outstanding company to work with! Chris was very patient and helpful during the entire process of trying to find the right home and layout for us. After multiple meetings with him, my wife and I finally decided on the home that fit our needs was already in the beginning stages of the building process, and we were able to make the changes we desired. Once we met with the foreman, Sterling, everything went like clockwork. He addressed every need, issue, question, and concern that we had. He understands how stressful building a new home can be, and he was absolutely wonderful to work with. Even after the build, any question or minor issue we had (new homes will always have something small that needs to be addressed) was immediately taken care of. Now that’s service after the sale! We still chat and text each other even though we’ve been in the house for over 4 months. Tama is truly gifted in the art of new home design! From speaking with other home owners in the neighborhood, she is also fantastic to work with when it comes to choosing colors and finishes. Ours turned out much better than we would have picked by ourselves. Everything from the exterior paint to the color of the floors flowed beautifully. If you’re trying to find a quality minded and honest builder for your home and are shopping around for one…take notice. Evergreen is a “little” more expensive (at first glance) than other builders that just “spit out” a house. But upon reviewing what actually goes into the house and how they’re built, the overall value of the build is far superior than a lot of other builders in the area. Quality and service are their two main priorities when building your home. Everything from the extra insulation, tankless water heater, built in shelves in the living room, carpets with extra padding, outstanding tile and granite work throughout the home, the attention to detail in everything they do is absolutely outstanding! They go the extra mile. One other selling point is they only build a few houses at a time instead of spreading themselves too thin building many of them at once. This allows each foreman to concentrate on your needs during the process. We’re happy homeowners. If/and/or when we decide to build another home, our decision is an easy one!
We have had Evergreen Homes build two homes for us...
They build an excellent home at a fair price. From the first meeting to the final walk thru we experienced excellent customer service and transparency, with responsiveness to warranty issues to addressing and resolving all concerns.
They worked hard to put together a home package that met our specific needs, desires, and budget. On both occasions we went into the building process knowing exactly what we were getting. Evergreen Homes NW delivered as promised and on time.
Our recommendation comes without any hesitation.
…always professional, prompt, and willing to find solutions to problems. Your integrity stands out among others.
We made the right choice working with Evergreen Homes
No construction project is ever completed without hiccups. We did have a couple of challenges that were resolved through positive collaboration and trust that worked out great in the end. From the beginning of the relationship, my husband and I promised to be their pickiest clients ever. We lived up to that every step of the way. Chris, Becky, Tama and Sterling all handled it quite well and we all kept our sense of humor throughout the project.
We love our custom Evergreen Home.
We would highly recommend Evergreen Homes to our friends.

We could not have asked for a better experience with a builder.
Heather and Rick
...we wanted to work with a company who genuinely cared about what we wanted and needed in our new family home.
We would recommend Evergreen Homes to anyone considering building a home.
Thank you for our beautiful new home.
Four years later: With Evergreen, we found a family owned custom home builder with the expertise and commitment we were looking for, at a price we could afford. Since Evergreen builds 20+ home developments they have the economy of scale and the relationships with quality contractors that saved us money. Before choosing Evergreen, we knocked on doors; their homeowners are satisfied customers. Since they are building dozens of homes in the area, you can look at them under construction; foundation, framing, drywall, etc., and see the quality for yourself. Once we were working with Evergreen we really appreciated the attention to detail and help with selection of fixtures, finishes and flooring. They took the time to listen us. Four years later we are very happy in our Evergreen home!
Lawrence & Deborah Studebaker
Their insight and advice was extremely valuable, but they were also great listeners which we really appreciated.
We could not be more pleased with our home and recommend them very highly.
We appreciate how hard you worked to give us exactly the home we want!
