Solid Rock Builder builds affordable custom homes throughout Lancaster County, PA. Founded by Elmer Beiler in 2012, Solid Rock Builder backs our passion for quality home building with over 20 years of experience in every aspect of construction. Solid Rock Builder can also handle additions and remodeling projects, large or small.
Raised on an Amish farm, Elmer Beiler learned the value of hard work early on and started framing and building houses at a very young age. In 2000, he struck out on his own to start his own framing business, where he grew his reputation as a quality framer. His hard work and commitment to great craftsmanship landed him work with many of the top builders in the Lancaster County area.
Though he enjoyed the framing business immensely, Elmer always dreamed of building his own houses. He wanted to work on projects from start to finish and see the look of joy on each homeowner's face as their dream became reality. So in 2012, Elmer phased out the work from his successful framing business and began building his own homes.
Since then, Elmer has also started working with customers on additions and remodeling projects, helping homeowners improve the homes they love with new features and functionality.
Elmer takes great pride in every job he undertakes from the simplest project to the most complex. He's onsite for every job and loves working with clients to bring their unique visions to life.
In his free time Elmer enjoys Hiking with his family, yard work, serving as a deacon at church and watching Eagles football.
