“Thank you for the thoughtful education all the way through the design and build. I daresay your standards were even higher than ours. We are so glad you were there to keep us on track, simplify everything and even bring joy into it all! This is probably unusual to say about a contractor – but we are thrilled to have taken this journey with you and to have made new friends as well as a new house.”
~ Wilmette New Home Design and Build
“I know I wrote you something after our final walk-through but seeing you here just now – offering your assistance a year and a half later – I just want to say thanks for making us feel like a priority even after our project was done. It’s the best “in” having picked you guys.”
