We approached Leo and Cherry Van Veen, owners of CL Van Veen Construction, with a rough idea and a description of our dream home and they transformed our dream into reality.
From the drafting process, to breaking ground, and all of the finishing touches, the entire process went smoothly. As first time home-builders, we were unsure of what to expect, but we were guided through that process. Tough decisions and all of our questions were answered quickly and professionally.
Our many meetings with Leo and Cherry kept everyone up to date and on the same page regarding decisions and progress. The attention to detail, organization and meeting deadlines by their crews and subcontractors was outstanding, as well as being very professional and friendly while completing our build. We would recommend CL Van Veen to anyone considering a custom build!

Leo and his crew did a fantastic job on our property in Clear Lake. Attention to detail, clean work sites and patience was very much noticed and appreciated!! We look forward to future builds with this company. Thanks for everything!

Unfortunately you hear a lot of horror stories about building. We were very fortunate to have found Leo and Cherry. After meeting with them we felt comfortable going forward. Our build was done quickly, efficiently and professionally. It was done on time. I was very happy with the upgrades we made (i.e. quartz countertops) and a few other small things. The builder grade choices were quite nice and overall extremely happy with our place. Leo and Cherry were both easy to work with. The crew and subcontractors were polite, friendly and job site kept clean. Only a couple very small issues at the end and they were dealt with directly through builder and quickly looked after. We are very thankful to them and enjoying our new place! :)

We highly recommend building with CL van Veen Construction. They built us a bungalow in 2020 and we couldn't be happier with the end result! Both Cherry & Leo are quick to reply to any emails or questions throughout the drafting and building process. They are upfront about pricing, with no unexpected expenses at the end of the project. The crew they have working for them are friendly & professional and the job site was kept clean throughout the building process. It is also nice that they employ a lot of locals & support local subcontractors.

Leo was the general contractor for the construction of our apartment block. With his expertise, he obtained two quotes for each aspect and reviewed each quote. He supervised the other contractors' work, was the liaison, and we met on a regular basis to review the progress and any concerns. The project was completed on time and Leo and Cherry continue to address issues when brought to their attention.

Leo and his crew were amazing! They’re work is very high quality. I hired him for two projects and Leo exceeded my expectations on both jobs. The jobs were both completed when he said they would.
Leo built our house 4 years ago. His workmanship and attention to detail were outstanding. His organization and communication skills were prompt and efficient. Leo and Cherry made building a house "fun and enjoyable". We could not have been happier! Their "follow up" over the years has also been excellent. We have no hesitation in recommending CLV Construction. It was a pleasure doing business with them.
