Hammett Homes...Second to None!
Early into the “We are really going to build a home phase”, it became clear to my wife and me that we were not dealing with just an ordinary builder and his sales associate partner. Craig Hammett and Jay Ross were customer-focused and their service was extraordinary. We never heard the word ‘No’. We customized our Timber Wolf model and their response was always: “Let’s see how we can make it happen”. What a fortunate opportunity to say we now have two new friends for life.
Our collaboration led to the creation of a home reflective of our life style and taste along with the required accommodations we desired. Craig and Jay listened to our ideas and suggestions and were willing to think outside the box and communicated our changes to their subcontractors.
The Hammett Home subcontractors embraced our enthusiasm and became excited about our ideas. Our best ‘new concept’ was a four panel sliding glass door dividing the two car garage from the RV port. Our RV garage affectionately called the ‘Harley Museum’ is an awesome ‘themed’ entertainment center. We have added additional enhancements to affect a romantic dream home such as the ‘Harley Plaza’ outside the RV garage which has a stamped concrete patio with a Hot Tub and an adjacent shed which accents the yard living space nicely. The landscapers met with us and exceeded our design expectations to present us a yard worthy of a “Garden Tour”. They even dug a lap pool-sized hole for my pond and water feature.
The appointments through-out our home are stunning. The attention to detail on every nook and cranny is superb. The few minor “oops” were promptly addressed by Craig and Jay’s most excellent subcontractors who take tremendous pride in their art (i.e. work)
We wake up each morning wondering if this is really our “home”. Yes, our home is really that !SPECTACULAR! We are blessed to have found an exceptional builder in Craig and his sales associate partner, Jay Ross. They turned our ideas into reality!

Our daughter and son-in-law had been on the hunt for the perfect home for us in Idaho near them. They looked at many homes, but our son-in-law said he had found “the one” after touring a Hammett Home model. We found ourselves traveling the nearly 500 miles to see for ourselves. We were very impressed not only with the home, but with Jay Ross who was there to answer every question we thought of and give us the helpful information we needed. The Hammett Home team...

She cried. She didn't want to but she couldn't help it. The emotions that had resided within her during the weeks of construction finally overwhelmed her and rose to the surface. Make no mistake: These were not tears linked to any tragedy or sadness. Rather, the tears were more akin to a joyful homecoming. For that is what this day was.
Hammett Homes finally had, after many years of buying and selling other houses, delivered the home of her dreams. From the spa like master bath, open and airy kitchen with white cabinetry to the turret "princess room", complete with windows full of sunshine at no extra cost, she had arrived home.
And he was simply pleased that she was so happy. Well, perhaps that and the garage full of promising projects, upstairs bonus room with

Having retired from two careers, the first being a Navy Ship Captain and the second as a Senior V.P. of a major corporation, this past May 2014, my wife and I moved into what we felt would be our last earthly home. Having lived in 29 different residences and owned 13 of them, we felt it would be difficult to find a retirement home that we would be pleased with, particularly since our experience had found that builders put better quality in larger homes where their profit margins are greater. We were, however, surprised to find that our home here in Greenbriar was built by Craig Hammett, who was the 2014 winner in the Realtor's Parade of Homes, and has built a large number of quality homes in upscale neighborhoods like Eagle.
Our experiences to date have been most pleasing as we have looked carefully at all the finished details of the interior, extensive use of granite counter tops and oversized tiled shower, the quality of the cabinets and lighting and each of the appliances, etc. We were also most pleased with the assistance provided by the builder's Sales Representative, Jay Ross, who was very professional, thorough and helpful to us in ways well beyond those offered by most agents.

Hammett Homes has been wonderful in building a new home for us.
With all the talk of how stressful it is building a home, the experience with Hammett homes has been just the opposite.
To explain, it has been bitter sweet, sweet that the home was completed just in time for Christmas as promised with more than our expectations fulfilled. Bitter because the fun of working with Craig and Jay has come to an end.
We are left with one amazing home and very fond memories of working with these two Gentleman.
Thank you to Craig Hammett for putting us together with such incredible professionals. As well as securing our dream lot just in the nick of time from the next bidder. From the first concept working with the design team to the many contractors who we were able to work closely with to ensure our ideas were coming together.
Special thank you to Jay for coordinating and organizing nearly every phase of the build, as well as answering all of our five thousand questions. So many incredible people pulled together to make this happen.
If you want a builder displaying integrity and great character, meeting deadlines, hiring highly skilled professionals, listening to the clients needs,
leading, and organizing contractors (these are all important quality's to possess as a builder).
Than my belief is Hammett homes is Idaho's finest builder.
