We had an outstanding experience with Cody and his team at True North Builders. Our lot provided a number of challenges requiring careful design to achieve our needs and to comply with strict guidelines in the historic district. Cody has an excellent design sense, and between the three of us we designed the house. Construction lasted about 15 months and Cody kept us informed every step of the way, especially in the time before we moved to Santa Fe. As construction progressed we both saw opportunities to enhance the project as the space got built out and Cody was open to making modest changes that didn't impact schedule or historic guidelines. After we moved in, Cody was diligent in taking care of any issues that emerged, and after nearly 2 years in the house we are delighted with the outcome.

True North Builders has recently build our new home. We highly recommend the company, having gone through the process over the last year. Cody North is a highly professional contractor. He has been responsive to our requests for changes, with a positive, can-do attitude. From the architect's design, the products used, the workers employed, and high quality construction, our new home has exceeded our expectations.

Received an estimate
We've lived in our home a little over a year now. It is extremely well built and energy efficient. The design is well thought out and very easy to live in. Cody North pays careful attention to even the smallest details and takes pride in his workmanship. The very few items that needed to be corrected were done swiftly and competently. I would highly recommend True North.

Purchased from this builder.
My wife and I purchased an adobe home in a 7 unit condo development built by True North. The workmanship is excellent, and all of the few small problems that have surfaced in the past year have been addressed promptly and personally by Cody. The house is beautiful, extremely efficient, comfortable and true to the historic East Side of Santa Fe. Great Job.

I purchased a home built by TrueNorth
I highly recommend True North Builders, having purchased a small home built by True North. The qualities that stand out from my experience are integrity, quality workmanship, and reliability. Integrity is the quality that underpins all business dealings I have had with True North. Negotiations are straight-forward with the goal being a win-win situation. Nothing hidden; no manipulation. Agreements about cost, timeliness, and workmanship are kept without question. Regarding workmanship, I consider BOTH design and execution of the agreed-upon product to be very important. With True North, before I moved into my home and subsequently these past 4 months that I have occupied it, whenever I have had questions or needed warranty support, True North and their skilled craftspersons have immediately responded. True North meets my high standards for fairness and cost effectiveness, elegance and efficiency of design, and reliabiity during all stages of the design, building, and warranty processes.

Cody and his True North Builders team were a pleasure to work with throughout our complete renovation of a beautiful old adobe casita in the historic east side of Santa Fe. Cody had his own vision for the property and, importantly, understood our vision as well. The workmanship was top-notch, the project was within budget, and on-schedule. The end result was a beautiful old casita that retained the historic charm but was updated for today's living. Cody understands how to deal with the historic district review process and he promises to follow through on specific items even after closing. Bottom line--the house is a gem!

It is without reservation I recommend Cody North and his workforce to design, build, and create whatever your building needs may be. I could not be more pleased. Thank you True North for a job well done.

We purchased a fully remodeled, historic adobe from True North Builders in 2014. The home had been torn down to the original adobe structure when we first looked at the property. We had, however, seen the quality of work that True North Builders had put into the historic adobes on Alma del Cañon and Palace Road. We trusted Cody North’s vision and “eye for detail” on our home. We were also drawn to TNB’s green, energy saving specifications and the fact that every available space was utilized for efficiency. We have been thoroughly satisfied with the finished product. We love our new “old” home and have had a very positive experience with TNB and living in Santa Fe. -The Smiths

Bought a renovated condo from True North.
We bought our home from True North Builders in 2013. We have been very pleased with all aspects of our home. The quality is exemplary and they have stood behind their work whenever we have had a problem. We would buy another home True North.

Nothing moves slowly with True North Builders. Cody is top rate when it comes to quality and results. Over the two years we worked closely together to design him ten custom homes that he then built, I found Cody steadfast, reliable, dedicated, extremely hard working, honest, principled and fair. He throws his heart into every detail, and his word is gold. I could rely on him to pick up the phone no matter how hectic. Cody has good taste and a great eye for design which compliments his vast construction experience. We rolled easily through design decisions, and our teamwork felt personally gratifying. I've had many clients and my custom projects with Cody are honestly the first where I could proudly splash finished photos from his Open Houses all over my webpage. That man is a 5 star builder/developer, and an upstanding human being who will continue to go far.
