We just completed our dream home with Christian’s help in August 2018. Although building can be a stressful process, having Christian as our Builder minimized our stress because we knew he had our best interest at heart. Christian communicated with us on a daily basis so we always knew what was going on. He answered all of our many questions promptly and honestly. The subcontractors he used were held to a high level of professionalism and he expects quality workmanship on every job. Our home was completed on time and under budget, even considering the curve balls that were thrown at us by Mother Nature. Needless to say, we love our new home and are very thankful for the relationship we have with Christian.

A little over a year ago my husband and I decided it was time to buy a new house since we had outgrown our current home. As we looked at listings online and walked through open houses, it became clear that we had differing visions of our ideal house- very frustrating. We did not consider building because I assumed it was much more expensive. Then it happened- we walked into one of Christian’s homes and we were both sold instantly. The only problem, it was above our budget and we weren’t prepared to make an offer right then. I contacted Christian and told him we really liked the house, but the timing wasn’t right to buy it… and asked if he was building another one with the same floor plan. He met with us in the house and let us know that we could build the exact floor plan on another lot, customized, for roughly the same price as the built house! Christian assisted us as we looked for a lot to make sure the plan fit well, he met with me and the designer as I made adjustments to the plan (added a 5th bedroom and large screened porch). He accurately estimated changes that would increase the budget or save us money. Christian stayed in communication with us months before we were ready to build. By the time we poured the foundation he knew our vision as well as we did! I cannot say enough about Christian’s excellent communication throughout this whole process. Any unresolved decisions were brought to my attention in advance. If anything was not done properly by the subs (a flickering shower light or a brick that dented the front door) Christian informed me of the issue and made it right. I am particular when it comes to craft and details. We have been in the house for 2 months now and we love it more each day.
We were warned by others about the stress of building your own home. Not true… they just didn’t have Christian.

When we started to think about building our new home we our first thought was to have Randy Berg build it, since he had built the home we were currently in. We spoke with Randy he advised us that he was about to retire, but he would turn us over to Christian Cowan, his very capable son-in-law.
Randy wasn’t lying. Christian is a very capable builder and more. We would recommended him to anyone in the market to build. He is very detailed oriented. He listens to what the client wants and then delivers. He also does his best to stay in budget. Love, love, love this guy. PLEASE use him to build your home.

Could not be any happier with our house. I think the master bath is still my favorite room in the house. I still catch myself walking and thinking “holy crap this is mine”. Christian is awesome. So many days during the building process I found him at our house filling in holes or scooping dirt off the road after a heavy rain. Even asked if he did anything in Madison for a friend of mine at work. Don’t know of anyone I would rather work with on a house. Christian is more of a friend than a builder and he is welcome at our house anytime. If you want a house and want to be sure it is the absolute best it can be, call Christian Cowan. I promise you will not be disappointed!!!!

We had lived in Columbus and were looking to relocate near Flowood to be closer to our grandchildren. We had been looking at new and older homes for over a year. The homes that we kept coming back to were homes that Christian Cowan had built. We liked the design, features and attention to detail that were used in his homes. We decided on the type home we liked and started the build process in the Cowan Creek Development. Christian worked with us during every step of the build, keeping us advised in advance when decisions on paint, flooring, etc. were needed. Christian never rushed us during this process and was very helpful to us when making these decisions. The contractors Christian used were friendly and experience in their craft and were never too busy to answer questions during the build. We enjoyed the whole experience and would highly recommend Christian and his team to anyone looking to build. A final note and one that I feel is very important was the few small items that needed attention after we moved in were handled in a timely manner and always to our satisfaction. Thank you Christian for a quality home and your continuing friendship after the sale.

David and I had lived In an apartment for five years and decided we wanted a home. Looked at a lot of homes new and old. Our home was already built by Christian but when I saw the home I feel in love with it and told David if we were going to get a home this is the one I wanted. Christian made everything easy for us. He was always available if we had questions prior to buying the home and even since. He even came over and changed a battery in one of my fire alarms in the kitchen due to the tall ceiling. What other builder would do that.
We have lived in the home for over nine months and I still come home and cannot believe this beautiful home belongs to us.

When we were searching for our new home, we knew we wanted a new construction. There were many homes to choose from, but one caught our eye more than the others. Nothing about this home was “ordinary”. Christian’s craftsmanship and attention to details make our home stand out from the others. Not only are his homes well-built, but he stands by his work, and is a pleasure to work with. Having a quality home with a builder we trust enables us to know we have invested well. If we ever move from this home, we will certainly ask Christian to build us a new one!

Christian made the process of buying a new home seamless. He was very straightforward and honest. I never second guessed any decision because I knew Christian was an respectable businessperson. The quality and craftsmanship of his homes are second to none.

We looked several years for the right house plan and builder. Once we walked through Christian Cowan’s Open House, we fell in love with his homes. Not only did Christian help us custom build a beautiful home within our budget, but he competed the home on the date he promised. Our family could not be happier with our new home! Jon and Stefanie Rogers October 2014
What a privilege it was to work with Christian in the building of our new home. He thoughtfully listened to our desires and made good suggestions along the way. We did the initial process from CA, and Christian went beyond what we would have thought a builder would do to make the process easy. Once we moved to MS, it was fun to be a part of the day-to-day building process and choose exactly what we wanted in our new home. We appreciated his integrity, his easy manner, and his suggestions. It was nice to meet his sub-contractors and work with them when needed.
We feel so blessed to have met Christian and have him build our new home which we are enjoying every day. Most definitely we would recommend him if you want to have a custom home built and met a great person at the same time!

When we started looking for a house, we were determined that we were not going build. However, after a year of searching for the “perfect” home, we realized we weren’t going to find what we wanted unless we did. We liked a design that Christian had built and asked him to build us a house based off of that plan with a few modifications. We were anxious at first because we had never experienced the process of building a home but Christian made the entire process easy and fun. We are extremely pleased and satisfied with the work that Christian did and would definitely recommend him to any home buyers.

Christian Cowan is one of the top custom home builders in the Jackson metro area and there is no doubt about it. His ability to organize the building process from the ground up and his desire to oversee all of the work required to build a custom home really pays off for the homeowner. He is on the job personally daily, often numerous times a day, staying on top of the work in progress. He hires the top crews and makes sure they do the job right. Christian is a real pleasure to work with. He has great ideas for both cost savings and improvements during home construction. He stays on top of scheduling, requested follow up visits, and gets with the homeowner regularly to get approvals and to let you know what to expect during each phase. He is very responsive if you have any issues during construction, making sure everything is handled appropriately.
Should we ever need to build another custom home, then Christian Cowan is the only builder we would consider. We have never met a professional who was more customer oriented than Christian. Outstanding individual, outstanding work ethic, and an outstanding builder.
Kerry and Gloria Ford June 2012
Building a home with Christian was a wonderful experience. At all times we felt informed and in control, and comfortable that we were getting exactly the house we wanted. He was extremely patient with our questions, and often anticipated our concerns with his thoughtful explanations. Good advice was always available and freely offered.
The finished house exceeded our expectations in every regard. The green building certification was important to us, and Christian was knowledgeable in this new area of construction. The results are exactly what we hoped they would be. We continue to be impressed with Christian’s professionalism and personal conduct well after our close date.
We love our home and look forward to many years of enjoying it.
