” I believe that building a home should be a pleasant experience for the customer. We achieve that by having a close working relationship with our clients. Success is measured by having a happy homeowner when the job is complete. I do not take on more work than I can do correctly. If a customer selects us to build their new home, I will guarantee them a great quality job with one on one personal attention.”

Quality Homes

Building a quality house is the result of careful planning, knowledge of construction and understanding what the customer really wants in their new home. In my many years of construction experience, I have learned a great deal about what is important and what is very important, such as understanding the transfer of loads to the ground. This helps me to be able to draw complete sets of plans and make changes to existing plans correctly.

Another important factor is proper placement and elevation of the house on the site. These details help improve proper water runoff and curb appeal.

In short, as your builder I will dot the I’s and cross the T’s throughout the entire project.
If a customer wants something that I have never experienced, I take all the time needed to research the item and find out the best way to get it complete. I enjoy my work and take pride in my houses

Quality People

Quality workers make quality jobs. In the past years of building, I have learned that having quality people can make a large difference in the outcome of the house. I like to work with people whom I feel always give their best effort and take pride in their work.

In over 30 years of construction I have acquired the best of the best as my team mates. It has taken many years to seek out people who want to do the job right, such as people who carry the old tradition of “a day’s work for a day’s pay” and are proud of the job we do.

I can keep those quality people by treating them with respect, giving them plenty of notice of start dates, providing a clean working environment and paying on time. My subcontractors know the quality I expect, and they take pride in giving it.

Satisfaction Guaranteed

If a person can be made happy, we can do it. We like to give you all the details up front before starting your new home.

I believe that a house should be built on paper before ever breaking ground. This helps keep errors to a minimum. If a builder error does occur on an item as it sometimes does, we will guarantee to make it as good, or better than it was originally intended to be.

We will do everything possible to have a happy homeowner when the job is complete. I believe that positive word of mouth is by far the best advertising.
