Environmentally Friendly Builders

ENERGY STAR certified new homes are designed and built to standards well above most other homes on the market today, delivering energy efficiency savings of up to 30 percent when compared to typical new homes. A new home that has earned the ENERGY STAR label has undergone a process of inspections, testing, and verification to meet strict requirements set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), delivering better quality, better comfort, and better durability. Carriage Manor Builders has worked to establish relationships with the highest skilled craftsmen and the most service oriented vendors which allows us to provide an energy efficient home along with an unmatched level of quality and customer service.

Jeff Watson (President & CEO):

Ever since he was young, Jeff has nurtured a passion for the building industry. He attributes that passion as a driving factor in the success of Carriage Manor.  He will be the first to tell you, ‘I love what I do!” Jeff started Carriage Manor Builders in 1991 and is still going strong! When Jeff is not building homes or renovations for our clients, he enjoys camping, RV’ing, boating, snowshoeing, biking, and pretty much anything else outdoors. Jeff has three daughters (Allison, Ashley, and Emily) and two dogs (Spanky and Ellie). He also raises chickens and donates most of the eggs. Jeff is a board member of the Columbia Montour Chamber of Commerce and is on the Montour County Task Force. Jeff is also involved in the Christ Wesleyan Church in Milton, and participates with the Men’s Ministry and Adult Bible Studies. You will get to know Jeff throughout the design and construction process as he is intimately involved in each stage and is routinely onsite.
