“You took a small cabin, built to be only a weekend place, and turned it into a good size house that meets all our needs for full-time living. We had a good plan, but you made it better with your suggestions. Your sub-contractors were all experts at their craft, your project manager, Lee, was very attentive to our needs and flexible when it came to the all the little stuff that ends up making a big difference.”
