1291 West Center Street, Lindon, UT 84042
When Paul Magleby founded Magleby Construction in 1974, it was with the goal of setting the standard for quality construction in Utah’s home building industry. And although the firm’s leadership is now in the hands of his son, Chad Magleby, its focus continues to be on building leading-edge, custom estate homes, and complex custom remodels for discerning clients in Utah and Sun Valley Idaho.
Pictured below is an example of the firm’s work on a residential project. This whole house remodel involved work on the entire exterior and interior of the home, as well as the addition of a new event barn. The living room, in particular, received quite a transformation. From dark and heavy materials the area was transformed into a fresh, colorful, and trendy space. The room now features white oak floors, accent beams, a classic plaster fireplace, a built-in wall bookcase, and wall-mounted shelves for family accessories. The white-painted walls also bring in some needed brightness, and the ceiling lights on the T&G ceiling detail twinkle above the room like its own field of stars.
Tiek Built Homes
74 W 1435 Street, Orem, UT 84058
After graduating with a construction management degree from BYU, Steve Tiek founded Tiek Built Homes to build better, not bigger, homes. This philosophy of going back to the basics is what guides the firm’s practice as it continues to build and remodel homes with an emphasis on what really matters.
Pictured below is an example of the firm’s stunning work on a remodel. “Old meets new” was the theme for this farmhouse-style home, where modern amenities and fixtures merged with old-style finishes and textures. Through a blend of white and rust-colored furniture, both rich and muted wooden tones, and splashes of green in between, the firm achieved the feel and atmosphere of a gracefully-aged home with a balanced touch of youth and newness in terms of modern amenities.
Steven Dailey Construction

Steve Dailey, founder of Steven Dailey Construction, is renowned throughout Salt Lake City for building the finest quality custom homes in the area.

An example of the firm’s work is this Brook Lane Remodel. Completed in 2017, the project was completed in collaboration with Meagan Rae Interiors and Salt Design Cabinet & Mill and turned the homeowners’ dream into reality. The home went through a complete transformation, and now features fresh bedrooms, muted bathrooms, and a neutrally-shaded dining area and kitchen. The home is a masterclass in using brown, neutral shades in an appealing manner, with its shading successfully setting a woodsy and natural atmosphere. Not surprisingly, the home gives off an open, inviting energy.

Pictured below is an example of the firm’s work on a residential project. The Mountain Modern Remodel project is a gorgeous earth-toned and textured remodel that highlights the natural materials in the home’s composition. Much of the house employs wooden paneling, high ceilings, and exposed beams to create a peaceful, relaxed space. A stone fireplace adds natural texture to the mix. The home beautifully blends outdoor living with the indoors.
2414 Bear Hills Drive, Draper, UT 84020
Quilter Construction is a family-owned and operated general contractor with almost four decades of experience in the construction industry. The firm is led by founder Ross Quilter. He works with his sons Ryan and Kasey, who learned the trade from their father, building and remodeling homes with artisan expertise.
Pictured below is an example of the firm’s work on a residential remodel. Completed in 2015, the Sunnyside Modern Remodel features modern tile finishes and classic wood paneling throughout the house. The home also features spaces that cohere into each other without necessarily being laid out in an open concept. One example is the living room and kitchen, which are divided by a floor-to-ceiling shelf of art and conversation pieces. This not-so-solid division allows the spaces of the kitchen and living room to be defined, yet flexible for socializing.
Hope Custom Building
933 W 1875 Street, Lehi, UT 84043
Based in Lehi, Hope Custom Building is a licensed general contractor with almost two decades of experience in the construction industry. Led by Nathan Hope, the firm offers new homes, basements, additions, and remodels to discerning clients in Utah. The firm maintains a solid work ethic and pays strict attention to detail in each of the projects it takes on.
Pictured below is an example of the firm’s work on a residential project. The Fain Basement in Lehi was transformed into the perfect mother-in-law living space. The basement features light blue walls with white trim, which provide a pretty base for the French countryside/beach-feel that the homeowners wanted to evoke. Meanwhile, the bathroom features modern porcelain tile floors, a garden-style tub, and a cultured marble shower and countertop. Laminate flooring was used for the craft room, which was built with a pony wall against the foundation and completed with an MDF shelf on top.
