“Lipsey Home Builders recently finished building our cabin in the Smoky Mountains. We had a great experience, even though living over 500 miles away. Joe was easy to work with, especially during the planning stages. He eagerly helped us make changes to the floor plan and design of our cabin to meet our needs and desires. Project coordinator, Amber, was unbelievably efficient at keeping everyone scheduled and the job on track. She is an awesome communicator and kept us informed of all the details throughout the build. Head carpenter, Tommy, took great care in his work and even added extra touches that he knew we would appreciate. We are very happy with our cabin. We would highly recommend Lipsey Home Builders for your next Smoky Mountain build.”

“We were looking to buy a cabin and were fortunate to walk through one of Joe’s cabins and meet him. After seeing multiple cabins he and his team had designed and built we were certain he was the builder to build our dream cabin. We also were able to speak with another person who built with Joe Lipsey and this confirmed that he was the type of builder we wanted to work with. Joe was very easy and flexible to work with and always made himself available when needed during the build process. His project manager, Amber, was highly organized and her attention to detail was instrumental throughout the build. Lipsey Home Builders provides a high level of service even after the build to ensure all aspects of the construction meet and exceed expectations. We highly recommend, & would definitely build again with Lipsey Home Builders. We rate them a 10 out 10.”

“Wow! What a great dream cabin that Lipsey Home Builders built for us. We were initially looking to buy a cabin, but the market was way overpriced and properties were selling too fast. We were talking to Summit Cabin Rentals about property management questions and discovered LHB. We walked through several of Joe’s cabins and ended up selecting one and making a huge amount of changes to the main floor and lower level. Unlike most builders, Joe welcomed these changes and was happy to work with us to accommodate our desires. Amber’s attention to detail and attentiveness to our questions was unbelievable and very appreciated! There were all kinds of unplanned “bumps in the road” throughout the building process…covid-related issues with shortages (labor, concrete, etc.), lot swap due to the county not approving a 4-bedroom plan, as well as a fire that ravaged through the Shagbark community. Through it all, Joe and Amber were incredible and a pleasure to work with. We were kept up to date with conference calls, texts, and in-person meetings. Joe has a “quality without compromise” slogan on some of his signs. Entirely accurate! We could not be more pleased with the finished product. Joe, Amber, Tommy, and the whole LHB team were outstanding and we can’t wait to potentially build another. Highly recommended!”

“By far one of the best construction companies in the Pigeon Forge, TN area. My Cabin burned down during the Hatcher Mountain Fires and Lipsey Home Builders (LHB) came to my rescue! LHB Owner met me at the construction site, listened to my needs & within 60 days had approved architectural plans ready and 5 months later started construction, on budget & definitely ahead of time……Wow!……Double Wow! He and his staff (Mrs. Amber – Project Mgr & Mr. Tommy – Construction Supervisor) were very professional and amazing to work with, they kept me informed during the build process and always went above and beyond, definitely highly recommend this company…they are the “best”!!”

“We recently had a cabin built in Sevierville Tn. by Lipsey Home Builders. The construction was first class and at times above and beyond what I was expecting. With 6×6 deck posts instead of 4×4, 2×6 exterior walls instead of 2×4 and wood plank ceilings on the porches instead of plywood, it is obvious the folks at LHB take pride in what they build and want it to be both structurally strong AND attractive. Everyone on the LHB team was responsive, kept us informed, explained our options and were enjoyable to work with. Thanks to Joe, Tommy, Amber and the rest of the LHB team! If I should find myself looking to have another cabin built I only need to make one phone call….to Lipsey Home Builders.”

“The entire Lipsey Team is awesome! From the beginning, we felt super comfortable talking with Joe. We flew into town, toured some of Joe’s builds and were immediately impressed by the quality and basically made our decision on the spot! The whole team is responsive, honest and trustworthy – everything you want in a builder. We live out of state, and it was super easy to build with them remotely. They always kept us informed about the process and sent us pictures and updates through the CoConstruct App. We are very happy with the quality and they really know the short term rental market. They offer a “turn-key rental ready” package which is definitely worth it. We absolutely love our new cabin and are very appreciative to Joe and the rest of the team. The only problem is, now I want to build another!”

“We ran across Lipsey Home Builders by chance when exploring our favorite area of wears valley in 2021. From the moment we ran across another property they were building , we were impressed with the quality and the uniqueness of the homes they built. During our first initial conversation we could tell they were not like many of the other builders we had contacted. At the time we hadn’t even picked out or purchased our land yet, but they were still able to give us general pricing on the cost to build , as well as recommendations on the area. Joe even took a look at the land before we purchased it ,to make sure it was a good fit for what we wanted, before we even signed a contract with them. No other builder was willing to do that. From the minute we started the communication and service was top notch. Amber always took the time to answer any questions we had, help us with selections, and anything else we needed. They are all very friendly and made us feel like family. One thing we really liked was the ability to get an all inclusive price upfront . We found during our search that most builders don’t include allowances for well drilling, excavation, septic, etc. , they are completely separate, leaving you in the dark about how much the final price will be. Lipsey doesn’t operate that way. Of course overages can happen, as with any new build on the side of a mountain . But the team at Lipsey Home builders always contacted us in advance to give us options to help us stay on budget. They also have a cabin rental agency that will manage the cabin for you when it’s done if you like. However, we never felt like we were under any pressure to use them if we didn’t want to. But when we found out it was also family owned and we would be dealing with the same great people and customer service, it was an easy decision for us. We just finished our new cabin and couldn’t be happier with the way it turned out. If you are looking for a local company to help with your smoky mountain home, with great customer service and tons of experience, we would highly recommend Lipsey home builders!!”
