My wife and I bought a very old house in Bay City, MI. in 1990 (The deed says 187?.) Over the years we have had the house redone one section at a time. When we came to the last section (living room, original kitchen-now not used, small pantry, our bedroom and the front entryway) we were experts on demolition. When finished we were down to studs and joists and sealed it off and moved upstairs with the kids for almost two years. In this time we contacted several contractors but were not pleased with the contact. Then we met Rich. We met him through his son at my boy scout troop and over about 6 months we discovered that he is a wealth of knowledge and skills (along with a tool for about any job). When I learned he was a handyman and had done just about everything you can think of in the building world, I asked him over to look at the house. He agreed to help me and my family put the house back together. Rich did just what he promised, he helped us put our home back together. On some items Rich did most the work while one of my family members helped. Other times he had us do the work under his guidance and for some jobs he showed us what needed to be done, and how, and we did it. The cost listed above is for both supplies and labor. As this was a very large job Rich picked up most of the supplies for us. This alone was worth hiring Rich since until you see how much material actually goes into remodeling a house it is hard to imagine. Rich had the experience and knowledge to know which brands and styles of just about anything imaginable works the best, talk about a time saver when reassembling a house. A specific example, that may seem small, but impressed me greatly, are his closet walls. When Rich builds a closet he first lines it with plywood and then drywall. This way no mater where you put a shelf or rod there is solid wood to hold it. This was the first time I had heard of this. I am very satisfied, Rich does not scrimp, and what he has built will last another 125 years. I would definitely hire Rich again.

From the estimate to finish they were great. 2000 sq ft complete with full bar custom built, 2 bedrooms, a beautiful bathroom, a vault, & media area and a gym complete with rubber floor & mirrored wall. They used the TBS wall system on part of the job, which I couldn't have been happier with & drywall on the rest. They were on time , courteous & friendly.

It went great! Bill did all the permits, everything! He even worked with the window company, getting the rough window sizes and also keeping them in the loop regarding his progress so they could schedule their work.

Received estimate on 8/1/11. I removed all non-bearing material and clutter to minimize contractor time. Workers arrived ahead of schedule and were working by the scheduled appointment time. Workers were courteous and professional at all times, completed work ahead of schedule, cleaned entire area.

We are so happy that we chose Jerry to do our remodeling project! Not only is he a great guy that is very friendly, but, he also really listened to exactly what we wanted and strived hard to make us completely satisfied. He even happily accommodated a few additions that we made... like residing another side of our house to match the remodeled part). He's a perfectionist and his work is quality. He's a professional that never left a mess at the end of the day and was very respectful to both our property and us. We will definitely hire him again and highly recommend anyone else to do the same!
