Karla is currently scheduling new construction custom builds. Karla’s commitment to quality and unique character to her homes is top notch and she will offer all of her resources to each project and each client. Cherry Bloom’s goal is to give you a one of kind experience and Karla gives her full attention to make the dream of building your home have the least amount of stress as possible and a moment in your life that you will always remember.

Her husband, Scotty Abercrombie, lends a helping hand when there are days that she calls on him to help her accomplish the overabundance of the day’s task and he can be seen helping to run the equipment while grading for the home sites. Her father, Karl Payne, which Karla has worked with on all her projects over the years is always there to offer a helping hand. Many years ago, he built furniture as a hobby and his craftsman skills were a great asset. Karl and Scotty build shutters, custom barn doors, and solid wood glass cabinet doors. All of Karla’s family at some point lend a helping hand to help Karla achieve her passion. Her mom, Lorraine, sister Regina, and her nephew Cameron are all there to help in any way they can. When you buy a Cherry Bloom Home, you are buying a home from families that worked on the project with great pride and excitement for the future homeowners.

Cherry Bloom Homes and Designs is proud to have what they feel are some of the best subs in the business working on their projects, whether it is the trim carpenters, the tile artist, rock and brick masons, or the mechanical subs. Karla feels that every one on her team takes their job seriously and she can trust that with or without her they all try to do their best and want a great outcome, taking great pride in their work.

The Design Process

Cherry Bloom Homes feels that every single aspect of building a home should all be considered from the beginning. We offer a true turn-key experience. The layout of the home will consider what your life will look like in the home; do you entertain? how do you use your kitchen? do you have children and need fun additions for them? is this the home you are retiring in and need a stairless entry and all one level? These are all choices and decisions that Karla will personally help you work thru. Our homes are already stunning when they are empty, but allow us to take it over the top with furnishings and décor. Then place the cherry on top with a stunning yet practical landscaping package. Karla views each home as a masterpiece and she enjoys being part of every aspect of completion.
