Get To Know Dream Home Construction
When we started the company, we set out with a simple goal: to be the best home remodeler in the Cleveland area. To achieve this goal, we knew that quality, creativity, and client care were keys to success. “Is there a better way to do this?” became our guiding principle. Even today, we are constantly seeking ways to improve our company level of quality from top to bottom.
We are “hands-on” owners, and our clients know that they will always be able to talk to one of us if a problem arises. We always tell our clients to get five bids, take the most expensive and least expensive and throw those away. With those that remain, check references, check with your city to see if they are registered contractors, and finally, always go with the company with whom you feel most comfortable.

What are your hobbies/interests?
One of our main hobbies is hot rod cars; we collect cars and (re)build them. Scott and our son built a 1955 Ford F100 truck from the ground up! We love going to car shows, spending time as a family, boating, and fishing at our cottage. Our family has been involved with Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts for the past 10 years. We enjoy spending the time with our son, Matthew, who became an Eagle Scout in December 2016. Working with the boys has given us satisfaction, knowing that we were helping to motivate them to become respectable young men, and develop positive values that will carry over into their adult careers. We are still involved with the Eagle Scout projects. We believe it takes a village to help one another and have been helping the Santa Hide Away (more information on this is available at the website).

What Our Customers Say
Scott, Yvonne and Matthew,
Once again, you’ve taken a rough stone and turned it into an absolute gem. The breezeway is stunning, and I’ll send you some photos of the lights at night. Your attention to detail is absolutely top-notch. You work beautifully as a team, and if you don’t always FEEL like a beautiful team, you sure do hide it well! 😉
Thank you so much for all of your attention to leaving your workspace and finished projects so clean. We notice and appreciate it. To walk into the breezeway this evening after a LONG day of driving through torrential rain, I felt like I was walking into a spa. Think back to the initial room, with the bright yellow, and teal, and vivid green…with a mustard-yellow floor…..(according to Jeff, that color scheme was inspired by a kitchen towel he and his partner had)….
We’ve come a long way!
Kate (and Rick)
Our new garage addition is perfect for our new car, all of our friends and family can’t believe that you were able to tie the new addition in and make it look like it’s always been there.
We never had a single worry or doubt about the quality of the work, timeless of the job, or professionalism of all concerned parties. One of the most amazing aspects of the work Scott Burton orchestrated was the time in which it was completed. From start to finish, Scott ran an honest, driven, through, professional and openly I recommend his expertise and company without reservation.
Beautiful job on our kitchen and bathroom. You have exceeded our expiation on a construction company. The staff has such a great knowledge and work detail and your integrity with regards to your work speak volumes about your character as a person. Our kitchen and bath are truly a dream come true! We have been showing it off to all our friends and family.
Scott, You’re the best!! My new in-law suite is perfect for my Mother in law. She is enjoying very much.
My Kitchen is a dream kitchen thanks to the Dream Home team!
Thank you for the glamorous bathroom, Your outstanding work has completed our home.
Thank you for the beautiful railing on my second-floor porch.
Thanks for a great job you did in our home. And Scott and Matt coming back to work on our crazy kitchen electrical. You are all great!
Clara and I would like to extend our gratitude for the way all the folks that we interacted with were not only professional, but kind and thoughtful as well. We are extremely happy with the way our third- floor remodel turned out and grateful that we found you to do the work.
Please pass along a “thank you” to all the folks that were a part of this process as we are thankful for all their efforts into making the bedroom and bathroom livable again. Clara really appreciated the small touches with the towels, and we both appreciated finding your note when we took the kids up to show them the renovations.
We will definitely call you with any other remodeling projects that we have in the future. Please feel free to send other folks our way if they want to see- firsthand- the kind of workmanship that you do.
Scott– Shaker Heights
We are very pleased with all the work! After many disappointing experiences, we can hardly believe we found a contractor that works within a stated time frame and truly cares about the quality of the work right from the most minute details! You really helped mitigate the stress of having the kitchen redone and your supervision of subcontractors was very much appreciated!
Thanks for all the great work you’ve done for us this summer and in years past. The craftsmanship is always top-notch, and we so appreciate the personal touch. We have had many people ask us about your services because of the sign in the front yard and we always give you a great recommendation!
I had to write you to thank you for yet another wonderful job, renovating and remodeling our 1922-era home. When we decided to remodel the basement this summer, we didn’t hesitate in calling you.
Thank you for a great job.
Thank you for the wonderful job you did on my cottage. It’s been such a pleasure working with you and your crew again. I love my fireplace, seeing my Great Grandfather’s Rifle gives me a lot of pride!
After remodeling was complete, the beautiful kitchen became the center of activity in my home. I proud to bring guests into my kitchen. Dream Home Construction exceeded my expectations in all areas of planning and execution.
Thanks so much! The roof looks fantastic. Your staff are a pleasure to have around..
It is always fun to enjoy the outcome. Almost makes us want to buy another home and work on another basement.
It’s been 5 months since our kitchen was completed. Dream Home Construction took us through every step of the way. Keeping us in the loop day after day. In our new kitchen with pride we beam. Thanks to Scott, Yvonne and the Dream Home Team.
I love my new bedroom! I cannot tell you how smart I was to ask you again to tackle “This Old House” for a renovation. It is my castle and I now love ALL OF IT!

Dream Home Construction did a fantastic job on my foyer I am thrilled with the new look and very pleased with Dream Home Construction. project.
Thanks again for such a wonderful job on my house. I truly appreciate your honesty with me and dedication.
I’ve never had a workman do for me what you did the other day – with regard to the garage door opener. Your integrity with regard to your work speaks volumes about your character as a person. You have my vote!
We love the work you have done with our attic renovation and outside projects. We could not be happier with the finished product – a library and home office that we can be proud of and enjoy for many years to come!
It has been a pleasure working with you both over the last 17 years. Thank you for your dedication to detail and your integrity to your craft. We both feel so blessed to have you in our lives and our home.
I’m so very pleased with everything and so grateful for your help (all the little things including the animal nest).
Thanks again for doing such great work on our lower level. The design of the new family room and all the detailed mill-work makes a real impact when people walk down stairs and the fireplace makes the room seem very warm and homey. Also once again we have a wine cellar that makes a statement. It is Both functional and interesting and the mill-work, stone wall, lighting and slate floor give it a sort of “old world” feel. It makes you want to.. well- drink some good wine! You and the crew were great to work with and it is always fun the enjoy the outcome.
My glamour bathroom is beautiful, thank you for making my dream come true! Your staff, especially Yvonne has made this remodel very easy for us..
Thank you for kindness and dedication is what makes you such wonderful people.
I can’t not believe that I have this gorgeous basement in my home. I gave you pictures from a magazine and you came up with all the ideas. My family and I could not be happier!
