Orange Grove Home Builders Provider Name Locked
was referred to me from a friend. He's a super nice guy... couldn't have liked him more... at the time.
Still, I like him, I just wish that he was more professional.
1- His initial bid turned out to be SUBSTANTIALLY lower then the project ended up costing... by like, twice! I can understand some cost over-runs but... whoa... that was a big miscalculation!
2- I wish, in retrospect, that he would have steered me in a different design direction then we ended up going in. It appears to me now that a different design would have been more interesting to the eye, more cost effective and would lead to fewer maintenance issues.
3- He mentions the he has a guarantee on his work. That does not seem to be the case. There are some minor problems that developed ... he came and observed the problem... even offered a solution. I've been trying for months to have him execute those solution ideas.... I'd even pay him the labor costs to get it done but... that leads me to the next concern.
4- He just stopped responding to me. By email or phone. I'm really quite polite. I understand he is busy but... come on. Tell me you are really busy and that you'll follow up in X time.
Again,
Orange Grove Home Builders Provider Name Locked
is a good guy but just not professional enough to recommend.

was accomodating in every way that we could think of. They let us build where we wanted, and they even purchased the lot for us. They also made many changes to the design of the home plan we selected, which gave us the personal touch we were looking for. Not only did
Orange Grove Home Builders Provider Name Locked
allow us to have our dream home as our first home, they went above and beyond. Their standard of workmanship is already high, which was very nice. We didn't have to ask for any upgrades that a high end home should have, like nice carpet, tile entry way and kitchen, granite, and custom cabinets. They come standard. Because the nice workmanship is standard for them, they can offer it at a much lower price than other, who upcharge for all of those things.
We had
Orange Grove Home Builders Provider Name Locked
as our Sales Rep, and we would strongly recommend him! He is not only kind and fun to talk to, he gets things done- and makes sure those he's working with get what is needed done. If you're interested in working with
Orange Grove Home Builders Provider Name Locked
, talk to
Orange Grove Home Builders Provider Name Locked
first.
Now for unforseen problems. Quite a few things came up that no one could have known. For example, the spetic company wasn't able to get our septic tank up to our house due to weather- they tried three or four times but had to turn around. Due to that, the bill to
Orange Grove Home Builders Provider Name Locked
for the septic tank came in about $1500 more than was budgeted for.

ate it for us- we didn't have to incur those costs. Another unforseen issue was our driveway. It was a slick mud path at the start- because I wanted to do the driveway myself, so they gave me- for free- a full
Orange Grove Home Builders Provider Name Locked
of plywood as a temporary walk path to our front door (about 80 feet long up a steep slope!) And, one more item- we purchased an additional half acre next to our property to extend our property line. Long story short, I put our driveway out through that half acre to our home. The road inspector denied or certificate of occupancy due to that (Lame) so
Orange Grove Home Builders Provider Name Locked
(owner of
Orange Grove Home Builders Provider Name Locked
) came and personally talked to me about it. He offered his crew to come and cut the driveway through the other side of our property for free! So, their excavators came up and gave me a full horse-shoe driveway loop, for free! They also put in a drain culvert under the driveway (another $300) for free as well.
You can tell that
Orange Grove Home Builders Provider Name Locked
is very concerned with ensuring you are happy. We are! And, in fact, in a few years you might see our home on the
Orange Grove Home Builders Provider Name Locked
- so that
Orange Grove Home Builders Provider Name Locked
can build us another home.

I went with a different contractor due to the lack of response. My timeline is below. Over a month I was not able to get a final quote. My plan was to move forward and have

I understand being short staffed in August but I felt that I was pushing just to get some time for someone to answer my questions and to delivery what was promised at the time it was promised.

could have saved both our time if you just told me up front you were too overloaded to handle the work.

is very meticulous and professional. We have had no problems with our home. The issue came about because we were not happy about taking more than a year to build a house that should have taken 6-7 months (their words not ours). If you have all the time in the world...hire them. If you would like to move in to your house inside of a year...don't.

Unfortunately, the source of the leak continues to be a mystery. So now we are at Stage II and I have a call into

This was a fairly complex project with very difficult challenges that had to be assessed and surmounted.
Orange Grove Home Builders Provider Name Locked
is a very conscientious and careful person who has very good resources, both in terms of equipment and experience, to bring to bear on solving the problems. He was open to my concerns and ideas throughout the project and was willing to talk through options. He was flexible and adjusted his schedule as needed. The job was completed with quality and timeliness at a competitive cost.

(the owner) was great to deal with. He was responsive through the entire process and his work product was top notch. He showed up when he said he would and the finished driveway looks great. Totally professional and a pleasure to deal with
