Contractor, Paul Spicer, of Spicer Construction, Live Oak, Florida came highly recommended from a variety of sources in our initial inquiry into the Suwannee County area when we were looking for a contractor to construct our residence in Sept 2011. He provided custom build floor plans for our approval based on our input in record time. We felt his pricing was competitive and decided to proceed with the build with his company. The high roof pitch house is a small 2Br, 2Bath cottage but with a very open airy feel. We decided to go with a Galvalume metal roof, added a screened back porch with ceiling fans, tray ceiling in the living room, a detached shed (matching the house in siding, roof and paint selection). It has ample storage and closet space including a utility room for a washer and dryer and pantry off the kitchen. We were offered optional add-ons at reasonable prices so we added a fireplace and arched doorways which we absolutely love as they really set off the house interior with some architectural detail and character. We were also given the opportunity to utilize and quot;allowancesand quot; for numerous interior options such as light fixtures, flooring selections, kitchen sink and faucet selection, bathroom vanities selection, mirror and bathroom hardware selection, kitchen cabinets and countertops, door hardware, etc. This was a wonderful option which really allowed personal taste to be included in the process. We were able to select interior and exterior paint colors, interior and exterior door design and window mullion placement. He was able to substitute a vintage claw foot tub with the bath fixtures in our guest bath which replaced the tub/shower fiberglass unit we originally had in the budget. We feel the house has a lot of character and truly felt like home when we moved in as a result of the extra personal touches and effort that was afforded to us. We proceeded with the building process in late fall 2011 and we received our Certificate of Occupancy on March 2 2012. Paul Spicer was a man of his word and very easy to work with. He responded to all phone calls promptly and courteously. He paid attention to detail and did quality work. All of our windows and doors are good quality and the house is well insulated. He painted the exterior and interior of the house himself and did excellent trim work. He also did the tile work in our utility room and bathrooms including the custom shower which turned out absolutely gorgeous. He installed laminate flooring throughout most of the house which also came out great. He is a very and quot;hands onand quot; contractor who involved himself in many aspects of the build personally. The custom shed is also a lovely addition to the home and its matching detail to the house ties everything together. He worked well with his sub-contractors (Electrician, Plumber, Heat and AC, Sheet Rock, Kitchen Cabinets and Countertops), and coordinated with them to ensure everything was completed in a timely fashion and in a professional, quality manner. We are very happy with our home and highly recommend Paul Spicer with Spicer Construction.
