The design and construction process of a new home is long and arduous. There are many decisions to be made and avenues to travel as that process unfolds. When, at the end of that process, our customer is still as excited and as happy as they were when we started that process, we feel we have accomplished our goal.
I am Warren Salihar Jr. President and founder of Cathedral Homes of AZ.
I have been a self-employed construction businessman since 1977 when I created my first construction company, Warren & Son, INC, which serviced the Chicago metro area and it’s surrounding suburbs. Warren & Son was a commercial general contracting business as well as a custom cabinet manufacturing company that constructed and installed architectural casework. Our clients include Northwestern Hospital, Elmhurst Hospital, Chicago Public School System, Olympia Fields Hospital, Lincoln Park Zoo, United States Surgical, and numerous restaurants, doctors offices, and upper-end offices and condominiums along Chicago’s Magnificent Mile, including Chicago’s premier shopping area, Water Tower Place.
In 1999 I sold Warren & Son, Inc. so that I could pursue my growing passion for designing, building and remodeling in the residential home market. Gen-One Construction, Inc. was created to do just that, serving the southwest suburbs of Chicago, NW Indiana and SW Michigan.
During this time I would travel west often and found myself gravitating to the beauty and climate of Arizona and in 2017 I made it goal to invest in Sedona and created Cathedral Homes of AZ so that I may have new custom home building adventures in Sedona.
I am proud to be an Arizona Licensed Contractor and continue to enjoy the challenges of custom home building and remodeling while I enjoy the beauty and hospitality of Sedona.
