The project started off well, but once Nathan had rebuilt the lakewall and his sub had rebuilt the pergola, the quality of work and the rate of work went continually bad. When I confronted Nathan about the lack of anything being complete, he stated that nothing was complete and that he might take ten years to complete what he had promised to do. There are more things I could say, but I would highly recommend not using Nathan Ellington or Ellington Design Group, Inc., without getting several references from other projects that he has worked on. Nathan will show you pictures that he has taken of his work. ASK for the phone numbers connected with these pictures, so that you can get first hand knowledge of the actual owner's opinion.
