Coy Was Easily Accessible
Before building my husband and I had heard horror stories from friends of ours that had built in the past. I have to said that none of the negative things they experienced happened to us. Yes, there are many, many decisions that you must make in the process, but Coy has assembled an unbelievable team of professionals to walk you through the process. We threw in a few special requests, ones that we found on Pinterest. Coy and his team were able to replicate exactly what we showed them. Coy was easily accessible and took time to explain any questions that we had along the way. We have very happy with our house. If you are thinking about building, I urge you to call and talk to Coy, you won't be disappointed.
Fantastic Custom Home Builder
I highly recommend CMI Construction. They are a fantastic custom home builder and Coy is the best project manager I've ever met. If he wasn't already running a highly successful construction business I'd hire him in a minute to run any of my projects. I can't stress enough that you will get what you pay for with CMI. Their attention to detail, insistence on using only the best subcontractors, and Coy's demand for nothing but high quality from his staff is extremely impressive. Coy and his team not only deliver what they say they will, but they do it well and on time. I'm a stickler for detail and quality, and this builder exceeded my expectations. Most people I talk to about building a home bring up their fear of the complexity and hassle of the process. Coy made this easy and eliminated our fears of building. CMI is 100% transparent on the costs and process involved, which was a requirement for me. We ended up right on budget with our house. We couldn't believe how easy it ended up being and couldn't be more pleased with the results. We receive endless compliments on our house from everyone, even complete strangers. Coy has our contact details. Feel free to call and I'll talk to you about our experience with the process.
We Chose CMI Based On Testimonials
We interviewed a handful of builders and toured many homes. We chose CMI based on testimonials, CMIs open book policy, and Coy’s availability to answer many of our questions prior to our final decision. Now that our home is finished and we worked with Coy and his team, we discovered an operation that held themselves to the highest work ethic, honesty, and ability to explain every aspect of the process in a language we could understand. We’d be hard pressed to find somebody that works harder than Coy. We love our home. CMI provided a level of service and commitment to quality that produced a result better than we imagined. We have, and will continue to, recommend Coy and CMI Builders to anyone looking to build a home.
Extremely Satisfied With CMI Construction
We recently completed a home renovation with CMI Construction. This included totally re-modeling our kitchen, 1/2 bath, full hall bath, master bath, and painting of our family room and foyer. Coy Mullenix was friendly, professional, honest, and organized. He did everything he said he was going to do and more. In the beginning, Coy explained the process, costs, and timeframes. Throughout the process he was always available to assist us in our selections and even spent some time with us at the flooring company picking out tile. Mostly we could reach him directly for assistance or he would respond quickly if we had to leave a message. Coy was very flexible as we made several changes during the renovation. His employees and sub-contractors were all top notch and professional. They were all responsive and went the extra mile to make sure we were satisfied. In particular, Jason was very friendly and an extremely hard worker. From start to finish it was obvious Coy's goal was for us to be satisfied customers. We couldn't be happier with the process and finished product. The renovations are beautiful and they exceed our expectations. We have already recommended CMI to friends and will continue to do so.
The Only Builder To Use Was Coy Mullenix
For many years, we looked for the right house to buy or the right lot to build on. In 2015, we decided to build in Millstadt and had three lots that we were interested in purchasing. We had several friends, that we trust, tell us that the only builder to use was Coy Mullenix, owner of CMI Construction. We contacted Coy and explained that we wanted to build our “dream” house and had 3 lots we were looking at.
First, Coy said, you need to have house plans for this “dream” house, as it is a mistake to buy a lot and then try to fit your “dream” house on it. So, he suggested someone to work with us to draw up the house plans for our new home. After a couple of visits, we had our house plans, and with a few “tweaks,” and we took those plans to Coy.
Coy then spent time with us at each lot, marking an outline of how the house we wanted to build would fit on those lots. Then we found a 4th lot, that he said would be perfect.
Coy, then sat down with us and asked what we specifics we wanted in our new house. He listened closely to everything we said and that was very important to us.
Coy spent all this time with us, prior to any commitment from us to select him as our builder.
We gave the plans to Coy and to another builder and both gave us their “bid,” as close to what we wanted as they could. Coy’s bid was very detailed, with vendors and amounts and within our price range.
We chose Coy because he was honest, caring and paid close attention to detail. He gave names and addresses of where to go for each detail in our new home. The vendors would tell us what Coy “usually” used, and if we wanted something different, there was no problem. We were included in every step of the way during the building process. Coy kept us informed and listened intently to any changes or concerns and made sure they were alleviated. Coy was also there every step of the way to make sure that the vendors built our home exactly as he thought it should be built. He supervised every detail to ensure our house was built to specifications and at the quality we wanted and expected. Coy set high and specific expectations for his vendors/subcontractors and it certainly shows in the quality of our home.
We have now been in our new home for a little over a year. We love everything about it and if there are any small problems, Coy always makes sure they are taken care of quickly and efficiently. He has continued to stay in touch with us periodically, which we greatly appreciate.
We would strongly recommend Coy Mullenix, owner of CMI Construction, to anyone who wants to build their “dream” home. He is an outstanding contractor and his vendors' respect and always honor him. He is honest, caring, efficient, and, most of all, he became our friend. We certainly made the right choice!

COY truly listened to our needs and wishes
Vern and I last year made one of the best decisions we could have made. That decision was to have CMI build our new home. We chose to build with CMI because for the first time when meeting with a builder we felt that "COY" truly listened to our needs and wishes and that never changed through out the entire process. You all made the entire process so easy and so much fun! Dear Coy, "Thank You" We just wanted to let you know how much we love our new home.

Our Home Is Beautiful!
In 2014 we built our dream home with Coy Mullenix and CMI Construction and we had an excellent experience. From the first question to the very last detail Coy is attentive, honest, passionate, and always present to help along the way. One of the big fears in building a house is the cost and where the money goes but from the first dollar Coy was open, honest and transparent with the expenses. We moved in last year and Coy is still as available and helpful today as our first meeting to discuss building our home. Our home is beautiful and we have Coy and the team at CMI to thank for their hard work and dedication to making sure our dreams came true.

Coy is a professional and is faithful to his home owners
We were looking for a new home in 2014 to purchase and met Coy in October of 2014 while we were looking at homes in Millstadt, IL. We were interested in a home being built by CMI Construction and were impressed with the exterior appearance and quality. Upon our first phone call to Coy about the home, he had no idea who we were and we had not met him yet as well. Coy gave us the code to the lock on the home and told us to go on in and look around and call him back if we liked what we saw. We did just that and were very impressed with the attention to detail of construction, design, appearance, colors, flooring and thought that went into the inside and outside of the home....

This is our forever home and CMI made it possible!
"We had an idea, came up with a plan, but CMI Construction made it a dream. Coy and his team were fantastic to work with during our planning and new home construction. CMI offered insights during the process to help us get the most out of our original designs and put our minds at ease by making every bid and change completely transparent. The finished product is nothing short of fantastic and quality is more than we were expecting. This is our forever home and CMI made it possible!"

We will definitely use CMI Construction for our next project!
We met with several builders with our plans in hand when deciding who we would trust to build us our dream home. When we met with Coy at his own home (for over two hours), we knew he was the one we wanted! Choosing CMI Construction was one of the best decisions we’ve ever made. Coy took us step by step through the whole building process, explained any bumps in the road during construction and how he overcome them. Oh, the “Golden Shovel” for the ground breaking was a nice touch too. The home constantly gets compliments from visitors/neighbors alike, and while it isn’t the smallest home in the area, it is one of the most energy efficient in the whole county. If we had a question after moving in, we always got a call back with an answer. We will definitely use CMI Construction for our next project!

I was most impressed with the attention to all details and the quality
We highly recommend CMI builders! They are very professional and honest. Coy had us moved in our new home when he said we should be in. He guided us all the way through the building process from beginning to end. From floors, brick, doors, sinks, granite, door jams etc. he told us where to go and who to see. Everyone has been so helpful and nice! Thank you Coy and CMI builders! We LOVE our new house! We had some anxiety and uncertainty when selecting a builder. From start to finish, we could not have been happier with Coy Mullenix and CMI construction! I was most impressed with the attention to all details and the quality of the work performed!

Best Experience Remodeling Our Dream Kitchen
We had the best experience remodeling our dream kitchen with CMI Builders. From beginning to end, they walked us through every step. Coy is a dedicated, hard working individual and will go out of his way to make things go smoothly and he coordinates well with his contractors. We were thrilled to have our project completed in a timely manner, even over two major holiday (Thanksgiving and Christmas). To say the least, we are loving our new kitchen and have had continuous compliments! We highly recommend CMI Builders for your next remodeling, or home building. They are 100% professional and take pride in their work!

Coy Met Or Exceeded Our Expectations
"Our homebuilding experience with Coy was somewhat atypical in that I too was working on the job daily. This presence allowed me the advantage to witness and/or adjust anything in real time. Several of my main prerequisites when looking at the builder/building included: strength of construction, integrity and efficiency, craftsmanship, material quality, time schedule, and attention to detail. Throughout the build Coy met or exceeded our expectations to the point where I told Coy he would one day walk away from the job where he and I would call it “finished…no punch list”. Coy left the job without a punch list.
My wife was so pleased with the planning, coordination and flow of the build that she is ready to build again. If and when we do that, Coy would again be our first contact for a contractor."
"From considerations of home placement on the lot through window choice, insulation package options, HVAC equipment choice and much attention to detail…Coy and I thoroughly analyzed energy demands throughout the design and construction of our new 2010 built home. The result of comparing energy use the final 27 months in our former 2400 square foot home to the past 27 months in our new 3800 square foot home reflects a modest 6% increase in KWH usage with a dynamic 53% decrease in gas therm usage.
Our new home increased our finished square footage by 50%.....we can live very well with those energy use numbers."
