Building Homes for Families

We believe the  homeowners' opinion is the best gauge of our craftsmanship and service


    We recently retired to Muscle Shoals from Illinois.  After careful consideration we chose Ricky Veal to
    build our retirement home.  You might imagine the concern and anxiety we had living 500 miles away
    from the project.  Ricky understood our concerns and made it a point to be on site everyday to make
    sure the work progressed on schedule and within budget.
    Part of our project employed new “green” technology for heating, cooling, water supply, insulation,
    and backup generation systems.  Ricky wasn’t afraid to incorporate these new technologies and the
    whole project went smoothly.  We quickly learned that Ricky is a trustworthy, innovative, and versatile
    craftsman who insures high quality workmanship from his crew right down to the smallest detail.
    Needless to say, we are very pleased to have met and worked with Ricky and the whole staff at Veal’s
    Custom Homes.  Ricky and his staff kept us informed on all work site activities, provided frequent
    updates, made several excellent suggestions on changes to our building plans, and kept our costs as low
    as possible.  In the end, being 500 miles away was never a problem for us.
    We’ve already recommended Ricky to several people, and will continue to do so because we are
    impressed with his trustworthiness, integrity, attention to detail, and willingness to try new things.
    Thanks, Ricky – you made our dream come alive!

    always heard that house building is very stressful, but

      "Before we selected Veal’s Custom Homes as our builder, his reputation preceded him.
    We saw and heard from others in the profession that Veal’s Custom Homes exhibited a
    strong work ethic and quality workmanship on all jobs. We are very pleased with our home
    in Veal’s Custom Homes’ newest development, Stone Ridge. Mr. Ricky Veal was prompt in
    response to initial inquiries about the property and the plans for our home. He met with us
    on multiple occasions to customize the plans to fit our needs and to ensure the building
    process was executed smoothly. Throughout the building process, Mr. Ricky Veal was very
    thorough in his communication, planning, and execution. His knowledge and skill set were
    so valuable throughout the process. The whole process was enjoyable from start to finish.
    We will and have recommend Veal’s Custom Homes to anyone thinking of building."

     “It is with great pleasure that we recommend Veal’s Custom  Homes to
    build your home.  Ricky worked with us to create custom house plans from
    just a picture off the internet and a wooded lot to what is now our beautiful
    home.  Ricky and Mae kept us updated and informed during every phase
    of construction to ensure we had plenty of time during our busy schedules
    to pick out the perfect color, flooring, fixtures, etc.  Ricky ensured that
    work was done to the highest quality and exactly the way that we wanted
    it.  Everyone that worked on our house was extremely professional and
    masters in their trade.  We are truly blessed to have such a beautiful
    home and we could not have done it without Veal’s Custom Homes.  
    Thanks Ricky and Mae for a great home building experience.”
