“My wife and I looked at condos in the Cedar Rapids area for several months and chose an Academy Homes built condo because it was clearly the best quality home that fit our needs and price range. Working with Shawn during the acquisition process was a pleasant experience. Not part of the original deal was my request to add extra cabinets to the laundry area and move the existing shelf to the garage which Shawn readily agreed to do without hesitation. We have been quite amazed at how small our heating and air conditioning bills have been because of the quality windows and plentiful insulation. The sound insulation from our neighbor through the common wall is also very good.” – Bruce and Marilynn Philipp

“We wanted to take the time to extend our appreciation to the wonderful job Academy Homes did in constructing our first new home. We are extremely pleased with the builder Shawn and his contractors. The organization, structure, and knowledge of all the different factors involved were great. From the earliest of days when he helped us choose the floor plan and layout that suited our family, as well as the help and support in all the decision making involved with building a home, to the final days and details of closing. Everything was first rate!” – Kyle & Molly Dotson

“We highly recommend Shawn Bodensteiner and Academy Homes. He works closely with his subcontractors and is at the job site frequently. He maintains open communication lines and does a great job of updating his clients throughout the building process. He also provides valuable insight that assists his clients in decision-making. Shawn is a very committed builder who works in a professional manner to build a quality home.” – Scott and Carolyn Nelson
