Client Referral – J & S Evans
Sheila and I wish to express our appreciation and thanks for the stupendous job you and your team have done in creating our new home.

As first-time builders we were very green behind the ears regarding the intricacies and complexities of building a house but your patience and expert knowledge made the process a painless one for us.

Your ability to solve design problems and come up with innovative ideas was great.

We especially appreciated the time you and the boys were happy to give us, going over in detail progress to date and keeping us informed of any problems encountered and rectification taken. That you kept us actively involved in the process made us feel a part of the team.

Your meticulous attention to detail at all times has produced a quality home we are truly proud of.

We will have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending you to anyone who is looking to build a home, be it small, medium or large, simple or complex because we know you will tackle it with the same enthusiasm and dedication that you have done for us. You are a perfectionist and as such take great pride in your work.

Thank you.

Yours sincerely,
Sheila and Jim Evans
