Being very interested in green building and energy efficiency, over six years we had gotten to know Norm Schreifels of Sun Mountain Construction through the Albuquerque fall Homes of Enchantment. When we were ready to build a home, our interest was for the quality of construction Sun Mountain offers, from the extra care taken in the foundation, through the well-insulated walls and duct work, and beyond to the finishing details. Our home was rated gold-level, New Mexico Build Green, even before the addition of the photo-voltaic panels on the roof. Norm is a perfectionist and is very selective about his subcontractors. We always found the contacts he recommended for selecting lighting and plumbing fixtures, flooring, and landscaping, to be friendly, experienced, and helpful. We continue to marvel at how Sun Mountain brought our dream of an active solar home into beautiful reality. We thank them!

"In February of 2003 my wife Marilyn and I began a collaboration of some eighteen months with Norm Schreifels to design and build our home in Oxbow Bluff. During the design phase of construction, Norm offered many creative ideas and provided expert advice in bringing our wants and needs into the final rendering of our house plans.
     Construction started in February of 2004 and throughout the building of our home, Norm was a superlative 'superintendent of construction.' A perfectionist at heart, Norm supervised the entire project thus ensuring my wife and I an exceptionally well-built, energy efficient and functional home. Norm's attention to details in construction, use of quality construction materials, and having an excellent cadre of sub-contractors was reassuring to both of us as we observed the building process. Norm's expertise in construction and years of experience moved the project at a steady pace. There were not periods of inactivity, or delays in the construction process.
     Our home was completed in October 2004 and since taking residence, both Marilyn and I have relished living in the house. It is exactly what we wanted, and Norm Schreifels was the catalyst that helped us get it. We feel confident that anyone wanting to build a distinctive, well-designed, energy-efficient home would not be sorry that they collaborated with Norm and Sun Mountain Construction. He is that good!"


"When we first decided to purchase a piece of land in Corrales to build a new home on, we had no idea there were so many custom home builders to choose from. So our adventure began. We looked at several homes during the parade of homes, and it took us a few years of searching before we walked into Sun Mountain Construction's Parade entry in Las Brisas. We knew at that moment that we wanted them to build us our casa.
     We made contact with Norm about a year later when we were ready to begin the building process. We knew what we wanted in a home and with the help of Norm and designer Watermelon Mountain Design, our dreams were well under way of becoming a reality.
     We have now been in our home for three years, and we are still excited about living there and really enjoy our time at home. If we do ever decide to build again, Norm can be sure he will be getting a call from us."

"We have been customers of Sun Mountain Construction on several occasions. They replaced the entire roof over the bedroom and bathroom of our rental house. They completed the job in the required time frame and were accurate in their estimate ... we hired them to replace the carpet in the den of our rental house with ceramic tile ... the quality was outstanding. Sun Mountain recently built a home for us in Rio Rancho, NM. They went to great lengths to ensure that there were a minimum of inconveniences and worked in our best interest with all of the sub-contractors ... we would not be reticent to hire them again to build us another home. We highly recommend them to others for any kind of construction work."

"Sun Mountain not only does an exceptional job in building custom homes, they price their homes so that new homeowners have immediate equity. They concentrate on details and offer good, old-fashioned craftsmanship in their work. They don't cut corners and they stand behind their work. Sun Mountain offered us a two-year warranty and made good on that promise. They encouraged us to walk through the house with a critical eye and write down every little imperfection or problem ... I would definitely recommend Sun Mountain to anyone wishing to build a high quality custom home. My husband and I never doubted that we made the right decision ... it has truly been our dream house."


Jill and Carl 


"I first met Norm ... about two years ago at their award winning home in Corrales. At that time I was almost through the bid process with another builder whom I felt very confident with, however after seeing the craftsmanship and attention to detail that Norm ... displayed I knew that Sun Mountain Construction had to build my home. We have undertaken a huge project in Las Campanas. The fact that we are out of state and can only visit the project occasionally makes our reliance on our contractor even more critical. Sun Mountain Construction, Inc., has fulfilled all of our expectations and then some. We look forward to future projects with Norm whom we now consider a friend."

"A Sun Mountain home is an excellently crafted home with attention to detail. Mr. Norm Schreifels worked beyond reasonable expectations to meet our time deadlines and hired reliable and competent sub-contractors. They were sensitive to our needs and translated them into our home's design. I would not hesitate to recommend Sun Mountain Construction to anyone desiring to build their dream home."





"Being involved in the construction industry as a supplier, I could have chosen just about anyone to build my home. I chose Sun Mountain Construction because of their dedication to building a quality home at a fair price. Their knowledge and attention to detail is truly impressive. I've been very happy with my decision to use Norm. My expectations have been met and better yet "exceeded".
