Our Story

Cedar Ridge comes from three generations of family craftsmanship and a dream to leave a positive impact. Andrew and Samuel were introduced to the industry by their father Andy. From him, we learned the ins and outs of what makes a builder excellent at his craft. We learned to appreciate quality over anything and that cutting corners is not an option. Eventually, we joined Andy in commercial and restaurant construction, working with some of the largest names in the industry. This field gave us the opportunity to hone our skills in an environment that required the constant management of various moving parts. After finding our passion for new homes in Deep Creek Lake, we decided to set our sights on a new path. One that would allow us to explore new expressions of creativity and craft and leave a positive impact directly on people’s lives.

The Founding of Cedar Ridge

On a family trip, we fell in love with the Deep Creek region and all it has to offer. Initially, we planned to construct a log home for our own personal family gatherings and vacations. As the building process progressed, we decided this joy was something we could share with the world. Together, we founded Cedar Ridge. This experience delivered the ideal balance of challenge and beauty, being able to embrace the details that make each home a unique expression of mountain living. 

Our Mission

We built this business from the ground up, driven by a desire to reimagine what the Luxury Log Home process can offer. Our foundation of in-house design and build services allows us to provide an excellent alternative for buyers looking for a more efficient and effective process. We’ve predicated our rapid growth on care for our team, with a strong appreciation for timely quality and benefits to ensure we draw in and retain the industry’s best. At its core, our mission is to channel our passion into creating homes where you’ll be proud to make memories for generations to come.
