The best decision we made about building our home on Lake Keowee was our first decision, choosing Larry Hoeben. Every step of the way, from placing the house on the lot and through every phase of construction, we were impressed. He was as focused about the details in the last month as he was the first. His house designs are impressive and the quality of his work exceeded our expectations. From the foundation to the paint, no detail was missed. He liberally used laminated beams for support. He uses the Zip System for making the house air and water tight.  He is steady and timely. A mere 7 months from start to finish.

When we stand in our dream home we are stunned, elated and somewhat in disbelief at the product he delivered.  Larry was the best choice we made. - RL Loving, the Juniper III plan

CORE General Contracting exceeded our expectations, an exemplary professional construction company. CORE General Contracting provided us with a quality built custom home and outstanding craftsmanship. Larry’s company was always responsive to any and all of our construction issues. We would rate CORE General Contracting one of the best builders in South Carolina. - Mike and Denice Fisher, the Magnolia plan

Our satisfied customers

We entrusted the building of our Lake Keowee home to Larry Hoeben after visiting other homes he had built.  We lived out of state in Florida during the entire construction, and Larry kept us regularly informed of the progress.  We were impressed by his professionalism and willingness to accommodate our personal style. - Robyn and Bob Courtright, a custom built plan

I bought property on Lake Keowee while living in Nevada. When I decided to build a home, I researched several local builders in the area. I met with Larry Hoeben and he explained my options and even took me to a construction site to show me the quality of his work. Being a former engineer, I was impressed with the quality of materials, workmanship, and attention to detail that most people would not notice. Being out of state, trust was very important to me and I was continually informed of the build process. After the build, Larry continued to make sure that I was satisfied. I highly recommend Larry Hoeben and CORE General Contracting for a quality home build. - Aksel Pedersen

We had a terrific experience with Larry Hoeben and the CORE General Contracting crew during the design and construction of our custom built lake home.  The workmanship and professionalism demonstrated throughout the process exceeded our expectations. We were especially pleased that Larry continued to respond promptly to our questions after construction was complete, generously sharing his expertise and wisdom with us.  The result is what we envisioned: a beautiful, comfortable, well-built home.  We are glad we chose to work with Larry and recommend his company to anyone that inquires. - Carolyn & Warren Newton, a custom plan

CORE General Contracting

When we decided to relocate to South Carolina from Indiana, we were concerned how the building process would work with us living 600 miles away. Larry Hoeben of CORE General Contracting, Inc. was easy to work with from the start. He kept us well informed of the progress on our house with timely pictures, texts, and emails. If we had questions, Larry was easy to contact and always prompt in getting back with us. We felt confident with Larry Hoeben/CORE and are glad we chose them to build our house! - Kurt and Lisa Ristow, the Juniper II plan
