Which Contractor Would You Prefer In East Tennessee?


There are two different scenarios that can be seen at a home build site.

In one scenario the contractor is brought supplies for creating a home of a couple’s dreams. In order to save on cost the project manager listens to the couple and goes with a few substandard choices. The manager also chooses to use materials that were don’t meet his standard on other parts of the home to save on time.

In the other scenario the project manager listens to the couple’s concerns about cost. The manager refuses to choose substandard materials but shows the couple other ways in which they can save money on the project. When the manager is brought materials that don’t meet his approval, he demands that new materials be delivered in an expedited manner.

At the end of the day do you want a substandard home or do you want a Cook Bros. home?; (865) 851-7373

A Custom Home That Is Unique For You


Have you ever stayed in a condo or cabin on vacation away from home? It can be fun to be surrounded by a new atmosphere with various decor. However, there are those times when you stay in a cabin that you think, “This is fun for a visit but I couldn’t live here.”

Why do people think this though? For some people the traditional and rustic decor while being amidst peaceful scenery just does not suit their personality. While some people love sitting in a comfy couch in front of warm fire in a lodge style living room, others would prefer to have fireplace that was surrounded by modern art.

The truth is that no personality of any two people is exactly the same. Thus, one man’s living space will not suit another man’s fancy. Cook Bros. Construction has a whole team of designers and builders with one goal in mind. They want to create YOUR dream home.; (865) 851-7373

A Contractor That Meets Their Deadlines

When we finish a home build project there is a strange occurrence that takes place when we tell our clients about their home. Their faces show signs of shock. Many of our clients simply cannot believe that we have completed all of our tasks within the completed deadline.

We believe that contractors should not only hold themselves up to a certain level of high quality but we also believe that timeliness should be the normal standard. However, I think you will agree that many people in East Tennessee and all over the United States have come to expect that a contractor will miss deadlines.
