Constant Communication

Constant communication with you through the building process to keep things on track and updated on what is happening on your project.
John Long’s work, and that of his team, is of the highest quality. John was flexible and open to changes that we proposed and he brought creative options and solutions to the challenges that we encountered during the building process. Our building site was always clean and John’s team was very considerate of our neighbors. We love our new home built by Keuka Builders (QKA Builders)!

We believe you deserve a lakefront home where you can relax and enjoy the lake.


Ready to build your custom home but concerned about building it to make the most of the lot?


Do you love your lakefront, and want to put it to use with room to relax and enjoy the view?


Are you ready to have a home that is energy efficient?

Living in a custom built lake home that takes full advantage of the lot size and lakefront is unmatched! That is why we use our 30 years of building and remodeling cottages on Keuka Lake to create unique, efficient lakefront homes for our clients to live in.
It was a pleasure having our house built by Keuka Builders.  John Long has lived in this area his entire life and has countless connections with local subcontractors; he was able to hire the best.
This is the third house we built, and even though we were long distance, I have to say it was the best experience. John Long is a person of the highest integrity. Having complete trust in our builder meant so much to us.
