Dixon Construction Inc. builds relationships, not just homes! 


With a major purchase like our home addition, we needed someone to guide us through the process. Foremost in all our needs, was someone with the experience to maximize our investment. They would have to be willing to go the extra mile for us. Their communication skill had to not only inform of us what would be needed but also educate us about construction. All those qualities would allow them to understand exactly what we wanted and be bold with money saving ideas.

When I interviewed Jason Cloninger from Dixon Construction, I had no idea he had already built 4 of the homes in my neighborhood. He was happy to give us a tour of the latest home that was still for sale during that interview. His craftsmanship was definitely what we were looking for. Our initial talk lasted more than two hours and he covered everything that would go into our addition. His thoroughness spoke volumes about his experience. In that short time, he was able to flesh out our ideas into a real world project.

We wanted to "get our feet wet" and design the addition ourselves. Over the next 2 to 3 weeks, we bounced one design idea after another off Jason. At this point we'd not formally contracted him but he patiently guided us through the process none the less. His input was invaluable and his extra effort left no doubt that we would hire him.

From working with Jason to get to the final design, we realized that we didn't speak "construction." I'm happy to say that this potential barrier was easily overcome. Jason has the skill to relay complex ideas and procedures in a way that we can understand. Not only can he communicate well but he kept us informed of each and every step once the building started. Because of his communication, we knew exactly what to expect throughout the entire project.

It would have been nice if we would have had an unlimited budget for this project. We didn't so we needed the biggest bang for our buck. Jason took all our needs, wants, and "nice to haves" and thought of ways to give them to us. His years of experience, dedication to his craft, and ability to share our vision added a huge value to our home. I believe he did everything in his power to make our investment count.

We really appreciate all the hard work of Jason Cloninger and Dixon Construction and are very happy with the final result.

Sincerely Mark and Dody Boggs


My family looked for a pre-existing home to purchase for a couple of years before we met Mr. Tom Dixon of Dixon Construction Company. Tom helped us design a floor plan, locate a desirable lot, and adjust the plan to accommodate our special-needs daughter, who is confined to a wheelchair.

All we had to do was to tell Dixon Construction what we wanted and they made the rest happen. Dixon Construction make my "American dream" a reality and even helped us find appliances that are energy star approved from a local supplier who installed and serviced them with no hassle involved. Not only did we see quality inside and out but we are living in the home of our dreams and saving money on energy costs due to extra measures taken to ensure energy efficiency in a time when every dollar counts. I am thrilled with the job that Dixon Construction did on our first home so much that if we ever build again they will be the first company we will call. Dixon Construction not only builds homes but it also helps build families while supporting our local businesses and community. Thank you, Dixon Construction Company, for building our home and enhancing our personal lives.


Candy and I have built eight houses in six states during our marriage. We have seen many building styles and various commitments to quality and service. This experience gave us a clear picture of the quality, price and location we wanted for our retirement home in Newton. We looked for over a year before discovering a new home being built by Dixon Construction. We met Tom and Jason, talked to a number of their sub-contractors, and watched the completion of a new home that was similar to the one we actually bought. After many conversations, we selected Tom and Jason, and we have not been disappointed yet. As one might expect, there were a few minor issues that were addressed to our satisfaction after we moved in. They have met our expectations for sure.

We have been our home for over a year now and we continue to be impressed with the workmanship of our new home. We gladly provide this independent recommendation for Dixon Construction as an excellent quality and customer focused builder.


We were pretty new to the home building experience when we started the process in January 2010. We talked with several builders and being the first born perfectionists that we are, we really weighed all the options and agonized over making the right choice for our builder. We chose a plan, worked out all the details, and made the decision we believed was right for our family. We were finally ready to begin with Dixon Construction. We appreciated the extra details, the focus on energy efficiency, and the fair, competitive price we received. Of course, no project is going to go perfectly but the minor details that were of concern were handled quickly and efficiently. We were especially pleased with the timeliness of our home completion. Everything was scheduled and completed right on time. We broke ground in June and were able to move in just before Thanksgiving. When you're living through the building process it's hard to appreciate the big picture. However, we can say that our home is beautiful and we are beyond pleased with the end result.


Moving from the beautiful Shenandoah Valley of Virginia to North Carolina was not an easy task, but grandchildren have a powerful influence on you, especially when they are 275 miles away in Newton, North Carolina.

Our task was made easier when we found our beautiful "energy star" home built by Tom Dixon and his grandson, Jason Cloninger. The design was just what we were looking for; the location perfect, and the quality of our new home was outstanding. Tom and Jason know how to build a first rate home. Life is good even if it isn't in the Shenandoah Valley.
