At Autumn Builders, we consistently exceed our customers' expectations. Here's an example:

"I am absolutely thrilled with my new home on Fairview Road. I moved in six weeks ago and I have managed to get settled and feel comfortable. I was assured that you would be available in the event I had problems, but I have had none. This was my first house building experience and given some of the horror stories I had heard, I was prepared for problems. Again, there were none. In fact, it was an extremely positive experience.

My initial meetings with Steve Cochran were pleasant and informative. As the initial planning process progressed, Doug Day got involved and was incredible. He made many helpful suggestions, always making sure my needs and wants were taken care of. He was easy to get in touch with and always responsive to my questions and concerns. During my many visits to the construction site, I always found the Autumn crew and sub-contractors to be congenial and helpful. I have had numerous compliments on the workmanship, and the house was completed two weeks ahead of schedule. It was the genuine interest displayed early on that convinced me to sign a contract with Autumn Builders. It is the resulting high quality, beautiful home that would prompt me to use them again, if the opportunity would arise.

Please accept my sincere thanks for the efforts that you all put into building my new home. I love it. I am very proud to call it my home and happy to let everyone know how great you all were."

About Us

Doug Day and Mike Chambers have been friends since grade school.

"We grew up here, attended Cecil County Public schools, went to college together, worked in the building trades and eventually started building homes ourselves in the early 1990s," says Doug.

Prior to starting Autumn Builders in 1993, both worked for other home-building contractors in Maryland and Delaware on every facet of home building, and take special pride in offering the highest quality workmanship available on the market today.

"When we first started building homes, we both worked 18-hour days doing just about everything ourselves," notes Mike, "but over the years we've been able to cultivate relationships with the best subcontractors around-who are just as passionate as we are about quality workmanship. That's the key to our success, and why our customers come back to us.

When they're not building custom homes, Doug and Mike enjoy spending time with their families. Both have been married more than 20 years and are raising active teenage children who attend Cecil County schools. Mike enjoys hunting and golfing, and Doug enjoys watching his kids play sports, riding his Harley, hunting, NASCAR, and relaxing with his family on slow days.

Autumn Builders specializes in building new homes in almost every price range, and concentrates on quality-not quantity.

"Autumn Builders is very professional and meticulous in their work. We lived out of state and we did not have to keep looking over their shoulders or checking on progress. Everything was done on or ahead of schedule. It went very smoothly and they are very solid in their construction work. We are very pleased with our home."

"We would like to express our sincere thanks for making the transition from New Jersey to Maryland so much easier than we thought it would be. Our new home is beautiful and the craftsmanship is the best we could have ever asked for. You have all been so helpful in the process of building a new home for us and answered our questions with such ease and efficiency. The area is so serene and beautiful and we feel thankful that we moved to Maryland. Everyone in Maryland has been so friendly it is such a pleasure living here. Thank You for everything!"
