We are pleased to write this testimonial of Phil Bowman’s work on our new home. New home construction can be a stressful experience that was made easier by Phil’s care and attention, not just to the project but to us. We felt we were in good hands and while the project progressed was impressed by his craftsmanship and expectaion of excellence. We now have a home we love to be in and am proud of. We’d like to express our thanks and appreciation for the very professional, quality work that he created for us and we are proud to show off our new home to all our friends and family. – Dana Golden

My husband, Don, and I had the pleasure of working with Steve Bowman and Cornerstone Developers this past year in the building of our new home.  Choosing Cornerstone was an easy choice for us. His reputation and integrity made this very exciting and stressful experience so enjoyable and first class. Steven communicated with us everyday and sometimes a few times a day on the progress of the home and what to expect in the near future.   His organization made it look easy, which helped us stay laid back and stress free.  Steven is such a genuine person that all the vendors respect him and want to work for him and give him the best possible product.  We can’t say enough about Steven and Cornerstone. He has built our Home that we will live in, grow in, and make memories in for many years. We highly recommend Steven and Cornerstone Developers in the building of your home. He will without a doubt treat your home like it is his own.

Phil was wonderful throughout the entire process of building our home. Phil’s commitment to quality, his attention to detail, and his positive attitude made the building process a very positive experience. In addition to his professionalism, knowledge, and guidance, we were impressed with Phil’s ongoing and open communication with us at every stage of the construction process. As first-time home builders, we appreciated his patience and responsiveness to our many questions. The transparency of the financial aspects of the project also helped us stay within budget. Phil’s construction timeline kept the project on schedule but still allowed us sufficient time to make selections on all of the specifications of our home. We couldn’t be happier with our house, and it is everything we had hoped for. Our home truly reflects our vision because he worked diligently with us and listened to our design ideas to make our home unique to us. It was a pleasure to work with Phil, and we would highly recommend him to anyone considering building a new home. – Rebecca & Kyle Puhl


We began the process of building a custom home with Phil about a year and a half ago and are over the moon with the results. I should start off by saying that my husband and I are first time home builders so we do not have much to compare the process with but I am confident that if we were to do it again we would gladly work with Phil.

Positives – Detail orientated, listened to my ideas and worked with me to achieve them no matter how out of the ordinary they were, I felt Phil was a great guide considering we were first timers, very responsive, I actually felt I learned a great deal throughout the process as I would ask for explanations of the build process often, he had many suggestions that I valued, he was very concerned with us being satisfied throughout the process, I genuinely felt very comfortable working with Phil. I am sure I could go on…

Negatives – I wish I sat down with Phil in the very beginning and asked for a detailed overview of the process, I think being a first time builder I did not completely understand the process and sometimes I became overwhelmed with the amount of decisions and vendors to visit. At one point I slowed the process of the build because I felt I could not keep up, Phil likes to stick to his schedule but he halted things so I could catch up.

I felt Phil was very responsive to my calls and emails (even on a few weekends), he also made it very clear we could meet anytime to discuss any concerns and held to that. For a period we met weekly to discuss progress and questions. I would say responsiveness was one of his strongest qualities.

I am incredibly happy with my house in every way. I feel the quality is sound. Our first year of living in the house is not yet over but Phil has been very attentive to my concerns post build, sometimes going above and beyond his scope of responsibility. He has made it very clear that he is proud of the product he produces and wants my family to be just as satisfied and proud. It is a nice feeling. – Jeff and Karen Hays


My husband and I couldn’t be happier with our decision to have Pinnacle Land Development build our new home. We found working with Phil Bowman to be an extremely rewarding experience. He offered quality construction at a fair and honest price.

We are very appreciative of his honest advice throughout the process and found him to be extremely accommodating to all of our needs and requests. His selection and direct management of his sub-contractors resulted in a very timely, well organized process and exceptional craftsmanship throughout our home. Phil carefully managed each phase of construction and strategically coordinated the many contractors as to avoid any delays during the building process.

Our experience has been positive and rewarding in many ways. It is because of Phil’s hard work, trustworthiness, and honest advice we are now settled in what is truly our dream home. We have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Pinnacle Land Development to others.- Tim and Heather Reinhard


We are so pleased with our new home. From the very beginning, Phil helped us through each aspect and detail of building our home. He was easy to talk to and answered questions promptly. He gave us professional advice and worked closely with us to build our dream home. We truly trusted Phil and believed he would do a wonderful job and he did. We feel the home was built with high quality materials and superior craftsmanship. We even had Phil return a year and a half later to finish our basement, which came out beautiful as well. We are so happy with the finished product and have recommended him to many friends and prospective buyers.

We moved into our new home in April 2012 and are pleased with the quality of the work and the accountability of the builder. We have always found Steven Bowman to be very forthright and honest. This trust is incredibly important when making a major investment like buying a home, especially in these financial times. We recommend Steven Bowman without reservation for both the quality of his work and the quality of his character.

It is a pleasure writing a testamonial for Phil Bowman. The decision for us to purchase a home from Phil was a simple one. His professionalism, attention to detail, and approachable manner, helped us achieve our goal of building our family home.

This was our first experience of building. We have and would again highly recommend Phil to anyone wishing to engage a builder in a project that requires excellent team work, quality craftsmanship, and above all effective communication. It is obvious that Phil takes pride in his work and genuinely enjoys building homes for his many satisfied clients.

If building in the future we would definitely want Phil to complete the project for us as our experience has been positive and rewarding in many ways.

Both Mary Ann and I really appreciated the detailed attention and thoroughness that you and your Team brought to the building of our new home. You were diligent throughout the construction process making certain that everything was done right. Any issues that arose during the building of our new home and the few that needed attention when the building was completed were handled promptly and to our complete satisfaction. We relied on you to do a first class job and you delivered in every way!

I have had the pleasure of working with Steven Bowman of Cornerstone Developers on two extensive renovation projects.  One was a reconfiguration and down-to-the-studs remodel of a master bedroom/bath/closet area.  We occupied the home during this entire remodel and were quite pleased at the minimization of disruption to the rest of our house.  All quotes were accurate, over-runs were discussed and agreed upon in advance and all subs performed on time and to the highest quality. The second project was much more extensive as it involved a whole house remodel, including kitchen and baths as well as an exterior second story stone patio and sidewalks.  Numerous subs had to be scheduled and coordinated, including special engineering and architectural concerns.  Again, all work was completed on time and with the highest quality craftsmanship.  There were no work stoppages or delays.  If people were scheduled they showed up.  It was an intricate dance of multiple specialties orchestrated beautifully by Steven. I would not hesitate to recommend Stephen for any construction project.  He was a delight to work with.
