At an early age, Steve Cardamone discovered that to pursue his creative and professional vision, he needed to build homes his way. He brought design, workmanship and attention to detail, as well as the the homeowner’s point of view, to his profession. Today, as he works alongside his two sons Scott and Corey, this experience is the essence of Cardamone Home Builders in the Finger Lakes Region of Upstate New York.
He began by purchasing a fixer-upper with every dollar he could borrow. The house was transformed into a beautiful home, and sold quickly. With profit and hammer in hand Steve moved on, and then on again, always moving forward with the fine craftsmanship, professional service and die-hard work ethic for which his company is known. Cardamone Home Builders didn’t rise to the top of area home-builders overnight, but grew through persistence and hard work. CHB continues moving forward as Steve launches yet another development of finely-crafted townhomes in the Ithaca/Lansing area. He will leave the completion of his vision to his, who exemplify everything their father has taught them about dedication to work, community, and the family’s home-building legacy. Steve is proud of his sons and their outstanding contributions to the family business, and he trusts that they will follow in his footsteps as exceptional custom home-builders in the Finger Lakes Region.
Scott’s phone can be heard ringing across the construction site throughout the day as he seamlessly trades hats from carpentry to management. He directs ordering, billing, scheduling, deliveries, and client inquiries. Scott’s charm and success lay within his genuine enjoyment of meeting and working with others, and he represents CHB with good cheer and a well-calloused handshake. Scott describes himself as a “lifer” in the home construction business. He studied Computer Aided Drafting and Manufacturing. When he is not working, he enjoys time with his wife and two children speeding around on their various motorcycles, boats and cars. In addition to working twelve-hour days, six days a week, he owns, manages and maintains every aspect of a 72-unit apartment complex in Horseheads, New York. Like his father and brother, Scott brings relentless quality and customer service to every aspect of his professional life.
Corey has worked with Cardamone Home Builders since high school. He found his niche within the business and now takes on the duties of foreman, working twelve-hour days, often six days a week, alongside his father and brother, to ensure all deadlines and quality requirements are met. He is the father of three athletic children, and he coaches his daughter’s softball team. Corey and his wife can often be found cheering for their children from the sidelines, at playing fields all over the Southern Tier. He fondly remembers the more than one hundred homes he has built over the past twenty-three years in Ithaca and Southern Tier communities, and he continues to buy, fix and sell properties around the Finger Lakes region. Corey brings his meticulous eye for detail and perfection to the business, and his custom-trim work is unparalleled.
