Chris Corey, president and creative eye behind Corey-Built, Inc., was recently featured in Bucks County Magazine, which highlights Bucks County’s events, art, culture, and lifestyle. In the article, Corey discussed his decades of design/build experience, his process, and why he loves restoring and remodeling local homes.
Chris Corey’s building projects in Bucks County and surrounding areas include home additions, custom homes, whole home renovations, home remodels, and more.
With over 35 years of experience, Corey started out doing roofing and siding in his New England hometown area. However, his creativity led to an interest in carpentry. After doing custom renovation work in South Carolina, Corey settled in Bucks County. He began Corey-Built, Inc. after years of working on multimillion-dollar properties in the Bucks County area.
He told Bucks County Magazine that his process always begins with a conversation. As many of his clients live in historic homes, he tries to understand what the client most wants to accomplish with their project. Often, the goal is integrating historic structure with modern functionality.
Corey described some of the challenges he’s encountered when working on projects. His current project for a 1700s stone farmhouse two-story addition and custom kitchen has involved enlarging the kitchen, fixing unsound infrastructure, and raising low ceilings.
Using 3D modeling, Corey explained he provides clients with a virtual tour of what the finished home will look like so they are comfortable before the project begins. His use of technology and constant communication are just a few of the ways he ensures client satisfaction for each project.
When describing what he loves about his work, Corey told the magazine, “I love doing custom homes; solving problems by blending what’s needed with existing architecture.”
