In their own homes, construction-company bosses will spend money on the best materials
and perks like seven ovens and a dog-grooming room. But some eschew complex homeautomation
Luxury-home builder Arnold Karp spent $175,000 on a geothermal heating and cooling system in his new $2.7 million contemporary home in Greenwich, Conn. Mr. Karp, 57, knows that even if his system slashes his utility bills dramatically, it may not pay for itself. But nonetheless, it’s still a great marketing tool for potential clients.

Working with Arnold and his team of professionals at Karp Associates is such a rewarding experience, and I think it's because they are all so passionate about what they do. Since the conclusion of our first project meeting, I knew we had found a special group of people that represent excellence; something we all strive for in business and in life.
They were a wonderful liaison with the architect and other subcontractors. When changes needed to be made they were on top of them and always one step ahead.
The quality of the workmanship, timeliness, and responsiveness to their clients' needs and specifications is beyond any other company I have worked with as a designer. They take huge pride in being the best, and making sure they each home owner is completely satisfied even after the project is completed.
Always professional, they actually listen to their clients needs and unlike many other builders, they keep the project on budget and finish on time. The end result is a beautifully appointed, high-quality build that is top-notch construction.
Karp Associates saved our renovation. Arnold Karp and team came in and were incredible. They are highly skilled builders, who work with complete transparency and the end result - a beautiful renovation.
I have worked with Karp Associates on many projects over the years—they are highly professional, organized and customer service oriented. From the smallest detail to the grand picture, Karp is paying attention. Our clients end up with beautiful spaces and a smile on their faces. They are terrific partners to have on your team.
It was wonderful to work with Karp Associates. We were new to the area and he helped us connect with the professionals we needed starting with the architect. We worked on a master plan that was implemented in 3 phases. All the employees were prompt, courteous, clean and professional. It was a good experience.
Over the course of four years, thorough several phases, Karp Associates gave us the house of our dreams. Arnold is incredibly talented at what he does. He knows all the right people and is incredibly easy to work with. He has given us countless recommendations for things other than on the present job. We have two rooms left to renovate and are waiting to begin any day. I know that they will be completed stress-free with the style and professionalism we have grown to admire in Arnold.
