  • Prominence – 2007 People’s Choice Award – 2nd Place Winner

    Our 2007 Parade of Home was a joy to build.  Located in Carmel Canyon, the most upscale subdivision in Iron County Utah, it has breath taking views of Shurtz Canyon.  It has a unique combination of both natural wood and stone.  It was a favorite of many who toured the home show.  This custom home was built in Cedar City, UT by SMJ Construction.  We are an award winning home builder and have been voted one of the best home builders in Southern Utah.

We have been attending the Cedar City and St. George home shows for the past ten years with the goal of finding a builder who could develop our unique vision into a reality. After interviewing many builders, we made the wise decision to entrust our dream to Shem Mackert of SMJ Construction and his team.  From the first drawings created on our kitchen table to the final raising of the flag, Shem, Justin, and their design team, brought to life a home that far exceeded our expectations.  –Burke & Marcene

Based on our positive experience, we can fully appreciate why SMJ Construction is thriving during this rough economy. If you ever need us to recommend or speak to anyone about your company, we will be more than happy to do so. Thank you again for a job well done!–Bruce & Denise
