Cedar Pointe Story

Our story started years ago in a land a bit distant away. The Gulbransons were a family of loggers in British Columbia, harvesting timber, farming, building roads–and building character. Today, those same hard-earned traits are being put to good use in Southern Utah, specifically the St. George area, constructing comfortable, beautiful places where you can be…home at last. We love what we do—and it shows!

This Isn’t Just A Job—It’s Our Passion

We’re perfectionists–call us picky. We don’t mind. We employ the best architects, work within the guidelines of our various communities, and then take it to the next level by employing the best craftsmen in the trades to execute our plans. Long after you’ve moved in, we can still drive by and get a real sense of accomplishment. And, years from now, if you spot an older gentleman stopping his well-used pick-up, getting out and staring at your house and looking a little nostalgic, maybe pointing at some feature on your home, don’t worry. He’s grateful he had the chance to build something that has stood the test of time.
It’s his passion–always will be!

What Our Partners Say

Working with Cedar Pointe Homes is one of the most consistent and pleasant construction experiences we have. We have been working with them for several years now and to us here at Prestige Woodworks, we recognize the following traits of Cedar Pointe Homes that we do not get with most of the construction industry: they are realistic with their timelines, they are communicative and understanding about deadlines, they work in tandem with us to have the homes ready for install in such a way that ensures a quality home, they treat their subs and customers well, they are prompt with payments. Overall Cedar Pointe Homes does not play the pushy, ornery, taskmaster construction game that is so prevalent in the industry. They aim for upscale quality homes with a pleasant construction experience and are always making changes for the better. We thoroughly enjoy working with Cedar Pointe Homes and hope to maintain our working relationship till death do us part.

More Of Our Story

When we think of the hardy folks who first came down to “Dixie” to settle in this sometimes unforgiving land, we tend to think of the 19th-century. But, other pioneers have come more recently, for example, the Gulbranson family who are shareholders in Cedar Pointe Homes. Historians tell us that the overland migration to Utah Territory via horse- or ox-drawn wagon, accompanied by herds of farm animals, ended with the completion of the transcontinental railroad in 1869 at Promontory Point, Utah. But, that’s not exactly accurate. In the early 1960’s, a family of Norwegian-Americans from Minnesota immigrated to Utah in pioneer fashion since they had no other affordable means of bringing their household and farm animals West and join with others of their faith. The family eventually pioneered in central British Columbia and began farming, doing construction work and logging. That was the Gulbranson family. And, they put that pioneering ethic of hard work and attention to detail in everything they do, and that is reflected in the workmanship in the homes they build at Cedar Pointe.

Come in and see for yourself!

 

One son, Melville, continued that tradition, and with his six sons and three daughters tamed farmland and timbered areas in BC until just recently. And, after selling much of his land, the rest of the family joined a couple of sons who had settled in the warm, dry land of Utah’s Dixie. Today, they have headquartered their family businesses, Cedar Pointe Homes, in the St. George area, doing what they’ve always done: pioneering.

Their commitment to hard work, quality construction, and innovative methods to find new solutions to sticky problems is the driving force behind the excellent craftsmanship and value that is evident in every Cedar Pointe home.

When you’re home, at last, it’s comforting to know that it is built on a strong tradition. At Cedar Pointe Homes, we’re still pioneering! And it shows.
