"I have worked with other contractors in the past. It was nice to work with Gary because he was the first one to show up when he said he would and did all he said he would do. He knew my time was valuable, too, and didn't waste it. I like that about him."
-Bill and Linda Callahan

"We started out needing a deck put on our house. We ended up with a deck, screened-in porch, and a remodeled kitchen! Gary and the guys were fantastic! Their suggestions and work made our house complete. Thanks, guys."
-Pat and Carol Fenelon

"Amazing job, Gary. I couldn't possibly be happier. You not only built me a house, you made me a home."
-Margie Breese

"We have some friends who were aware of Gary's quality work. They recommended... insisted, really... that we call him for a bid on our house's construction.  We sure are glad we called him. His bid was the most complete and well thought-out. Once he started building, things got interesting. While we had a great set of plans from which to work, we also had numerous changes along the way. Gary and his subs were all really accommodating to not only the plan modifications, but also understanding to the fact that we wanted our home to be "ours"  entirely. What began as a seemingly normal build turned-out to be anything but. We've incorporated a number of permanent-fixture antique and family heirloom items into our new construction.  We further used many uncommon materials, supplies, and suppliers. Gary did not bat an eye at our ideas and demand—and the result is absolutely beautiful. We love this home!"
-Randy and Patricia Judge
