 Building doesn't have to be painful! Want proof? Ask our customers.

Our goal at MasterCraft Design & Build is to partner with you to build your new custom home, addition or remodeling dream.  We work hard to prevent the anxiety and uncertainty that is a part of so many housing projects.  We are in the home building business because that is what we love to do.

Building a home should be a fun and rewarding experience. We will walk with you throughout the entire process from design to move in.  We can bring our own architects into help with the design or work right along with your architect.  As we proceed with designs, we can update you with frequent budget estimates.  You can rest assured that you will have an accurate picture of your house budget as you go through the design process.  We will assist with all finish selections and will be glad to direct you to helpful suppliers that can answer any questions that you have.

You are able to question our quality at all stages of the construction process.   Feel free to walk the house at any time during the construction process.  We are glad to answer any questions that you have and discuss all options available.  We will proceed only when you are satisfied.

Our “Transparent Contracting” methods put the power of choice into your hands.  We will lay out all of the pricing options for you and let you make the final decisions.  You can rest assured that you are getting the maximum for your hard earned dollar.

As we complete your house, we will pay close attention to all of the final details.  Our select group of subcontractors will assemble all of the finishes for a polished and beautiful home.  Our “Extreme Quality Control” means that we will scrutinize all aspects of your home and make sure that the final product is something that you will be proud of for many years to come.

Green construction is rapidly becoming the “buzz” word in the construction industry.  We believe that you can use varying amounts or “shades “ of green in your home building project.  We are glad to help you sort through all of the options and make wise decisions that will benefit your home as well as the environment around it.  Look through our “Shades of Green” section for more information.

"I so appreciate how quickly you have responded to my numerous questions and issues. Now I know the value of a custom home builder. You truly stand by your word and your work."

Vicki H., Wildwood, MO


"Building with Mastercraft Design and Build especially with Steve and Mike was a smooth, rewarding experience from beginning to end. Working with them, the building process was very smooth throughout: from design, to build, to followup. The process as a whole can be overwhelming but they were with us every step of the way. Steve was pleasant, kind, patient and very accommodating. If he was frustrated with us, he never showed it. The quality of workmanship and materials is excellent as we feel that we received a well-built home. We are very happy with our new home."

Dan and Colleen P., Des Pres, MO


"After our home flooded due to a broken water line that ran a full night while we were not home, we hired MasterCraft Design & Build to manage the restoration.  This was a major effort as we completely lost our kitchen and most of our finished basement.  It was a significant amount of work that could have easily carried with it cost overruns and a lot of stress.  The process could not have gone better with MasterCraft.  Steve Horn and Mike Skidmore made the project truly painless, worked with us to keep their services within the budget provided by the insurance company, and kept us informed every step of the way.  I was so pleased my daughter and I then hired MasterCraft to manage the renovation of her home, with the same great results and experience."

George & Mary C., Oakville, MO


"Steve Horn of Mastercraft Design & Build is truly a professional in the field of custom home building. He uses reputable and highly qualified subcontractors who stand by their work. I wouldn’t say building a house is easy; but Steve made the process rewarding by keeping us involved in every step of the process from design to completion. Steve was easy to work with on all the upgrades and kept detailed records of the progress to stay on schedule. We have a beautiful home we can enjoy for years to come."

Len & Midge M., Mehlville, MO


"We have found Steve Horn to be not only an expert in building custom homes but also in building a custom "Green" home. We had ideas about building green that he not only put into action but helped in making sure we were doing it correctly. He has background in green design and building and used that expertise in doing our home. He is skilled in building custom homes and is a person that you can depend on. His personality is one that makes sure you are pleased with the way your home is being built and his integrity gives you the assurance that the cost of your home is what you would expect. No overcharging, no increases in building supplies, just honesty that you can depend on."

Stephen & Dawn K. - Crestwood, MO


“I have been in construction and maintenance for the past 30 years.  Over that time, I have worked with some good contractors as well as some who did not meet my expectations.  MasterCraft Design & Build is at the top of my list of outstanding contractors.  Steve helped us to create a custom design/build home and made the process very easy and enjoyable.  We love our new home and recommend MasterCraft Design & Build to anyone wanting to build their dream home.”

Joe and Jane S. - Mehlville, MO


"MasterCraft made sure that everything was done beyond our expectations!  The work was excellent, and the subcontractors were professional and polite as well.”
Rebecca P. -  Manchester


"My major remodeling project was completed on time and under budget.  Steve was always ready to answer questions and the end product was exactly what we envisioned."
Mark G. - Des Peres, MO


"Last May our luck turned very bad when a 15 ton oak fell on and crushed our carport/storage room (and cars inside).  However, we had the good luck of knowing Steve Horn, the owner of Mastercraft Design & Build. Steve directed the re-build project from debris removal through the construction of the replacement structures with outstanding personal attention to details.  The quality of the work and subcontractors, as well as the attention to costs, were excellent.  We highly recommend Steve and Mastercraft."

Warren & Susan L., Ladue, MO


"We were very happy with the work that MasterCraft Design & Build did for our foyer.  Steve and his team were professional, considerate, and detail-oriented, and they always showed up on time.  When it's time to renovate our kitchen, we know who we'll be calling."

Zach H. - University City, MO
