It went very well. Despite some weather delays, not in Jack’s control, he and his team designed and built our dream home. Jack and his team are very professional, courteous, detailed, and strive for customer satisfaction. We have lived in our new home for a month now and couldn’t be happier. We would highly recommend Jack Duncan Palmer builders to perform home renovations or new construction to the greater Lansing area.

The house construction went flawlessly! and while i expected it to, it is the fixing of the tiny issues that crop up after the money is paid and the contractor moves on to the next project that counts most. Mr. Davis was quick to send professionals out to fix the little issues, and didn't utter the awful words, " that wasn't included in our agreement" except when we changed the parameters (we did that quite a bit!). All in all, i would recommend Mr. Davis in a heart beat.

We are just very happy with their work. They keep the area clean, they pick up after themselves, and the quality of their work is of optimum value. The subcontractors they use are excellent as well. They are a little bit pricey, but they do really good work and use superior quality material.

I had not used them since they built our house for us. I would use them again but they're a little pricy. I would love to use them, I think they did a wonderful job in our house and I think they do a wonderful job in what they do, but they're a little bit pricy. It was 20 years ago but I've seen houses they've done since then. I had paid $206,000 in the past. I'd like to use them right now because I want my kitchen redone.

CVE builds a quality home for a good price. They also are willing to customize any of their existing floor plans to suit your requirements. The design phase was the worst. I designed the upstairs and even drew up the plans using google sketchup and gave them to CVE to translate to real plans and troubleshoot any building problems my design would cause. It took over 3 weeks to get a response. Finally, after much pushing, They just handed back what I gave them! They never designed anything. I ended up designing 2 different sets of upstairs configurations. I see one of my designs is posted on their web page as theirs. Design team, horrible for responsiveness. Building team, great work. Site build manager, great. No nonsense, matter of fact, very hard worker. I was an educated builder having built before so was pretty on top of things. Several of my neighbors had problems since they were not attentive during the build and a few things got past them.

ADollins Construction Inc
We called Kenny Dollins (Dollins Construction) after frost heave left our deck noticeably twisted and draining water toward the house. We discussed this situation and the various options for repair vs. replacement. There was no pressure to choose a certain path. We decided to remove the old deck and replace it, making it larger while we were at it. Kenny was very responsive to our concerns about proper drainage and ensured the area was regraded. We were able to see first hand how well the water drained away from the house during a heavy rain just after this regrading. He also discussed with us possible materials and design options for the deck, encouraging us to think these over before making a final decision. The Dollins crew was very nice and always professional. The work was high quality. They pay great attention to detail, e.g. only the best boards used, cuts clean and straight; and the final product is beautiful. The job site was left clean at the end of each day. Everyone was friendly and pleasant to us. I was also impressed with Kenny's interaction with his his crew, giving instructions, answering questions, and giving correction when necessary, with patience, clarity and respect. We would be happy to have Dollins Construction back for a future project and would recommend them to others.

ASTEVENS ASSOCIATES BUILDERS
They were able to take our vision and recreate it for us. They were willing to work with the builder and get on board with the vision. The home is gold level lead with recycled material and were able to work with us on that. We are incredibly pleased with them. They are very easy to get a hold of them. I can contact them morning, noon, and night. Mike Stevens is the CEO of the group and he comes from down south and he can build anytime of house. He lines up the right subcontractors and delivers to the full guarantee. He backs up his work. His partner is a great architect and details all the finishing work. Anythign who walks into this house walks in with his mouth open. Our house is remarkable, a huge tribute to them.

Recent Review: Prices were cheap, but don't let that fool you! These are knowledgeable professionals who went above and beyond for every job we hired then for. From finishing our basement, to cleaning our gutters, to building a privacy fence, O'Neals have been there for us when we needed them! If something wasn't done to our expectations, they always came back out and made it right! I will always call them first.
Recent Review: We talked to them on the phone several times, and each time they promised to get back to us with design ideas, a schedule, a price, etc. At first we were able to leave messages and eventually get someone to respond - even if they delayed again and promised things "next week". The plan had been that they would likely be able to move forward in the fall. Finally, they wouldn't not return calls, either to the person we were dealing with, or to the main number. There was really no reason for this. Unprofessional, and they wasted our time, but this appears to be par for the course with contractors.
Recent Review: Tim Lea is an excellent builder. His vision of the garage and location was exactly what I was anticipating. The secondary garage was built to house yard equipment and a tool shop, while the upstairs is an art studio. The garage is stylized with a peak on each of the sides creating a unique look that matches well with our home. Tim made sure to build the garage a little off from the house and to the back so it would create an excellent patio area on the lower level outside of our walkout basement. He also built the first floor of the garage to be nearly level with the first level of our home, which allowed him to build the deck with a connecting walkway over to the second story of the garage. He then added the staircase from the entry point of the second story of the garage down to the patio area. It's a very nice, enclosed, and private area for entertaining friends and family. He quoted the work as a range, with low and high depending on what types of materials we used. He managed to find us a good deal on the trek material used for the deck, and he matched the siding and trim work of the garage to match our home. He completed the second floor with insulation, drywall, and finished it off. I had requested the first floor remain unfinished as it's a tool shop, but he did place insulation around the foundation to help keep the lower level warmer. Tim did contract out the electrical, which also turned out fine. The only issue we had was that the job started in October, but did not finish until Feb. or March of the following year. We weren't in a rush, but I had witnessed many times the guy Tim was using to build the majority of the garage was doing nothing. He would show up very late, take long lunches, leave early, and spend much of the time he was here either on his phone or sitting around the garage. It became apparent he was bilking Tim on hours. Whenever Tim came out on site and did work, we would always be amazed at how much got accomplished . Towards the end Tim started mentioning that the job was costing more than he anticipated. We had to tell him about his guy and how we didn't think he was working all the hours he might have been billing him. Tim said he suspected that and had already let him go. He didn't charge us any extra, which we were thankful for, but felt bad he wasn't watching his guy more closely to know what was happening. Tim also gave us a great deal on patio bricks, which we used when we had our landscaping done. We would definitely use him again in the future, and I'm sure he will watch his guys more closely moving forward. He's a great guy; Very friendly, and always looking for the extra wow he can give the customer. We do need to contact him as a couple of the siding pieces his guy installed are falling, and we have no way of getting them back into place.
Business Description: Northtown Construction is a full service remodeling and building company. The roots of our company started and grew from a variety of custom design projects.

Recent Review: Wow, this was a very amazing experience. It started with Kelly, who is a very good sales person to work with. She wants to address your issues and respects how you want to make the home your design. It looked like it may be a winter build on the foundation and I had concerns about the cement foundation setup. Kelly set up an appointment to meet with the Bob, the owner, to to talk and walk through the process and my questions were answered. We met with their interior design coordinator in their extensive showroom to pick out the flooring, cabinets, roofing, siding, etc. It was an amazing experience. We also picked out special items we liked at Lowes for a kitchen sink & faucet. Gave the information to Mayberry and they obtained them to install. The building process went great with the field superintendent. We did several change orders with him and it all worked very smooth (added more basement egress/lookout windows) When we did the walk through prior to closing, the field superintendent found more items than we noticed. They wanted them all fixed prior to closing and they were (nothing major, paint nicks and small touch ups). The inspector made a check of all the faucets, toilets, electric outlets, lights, etc in each room. Everything was touched to make sure it worked correctly. Closing was a snap at their office location. Mayberry sends out a home inspector about 1 month after living in the home, He was outstanding. He walked through and found issues to fix that we did not see (again small ones). The same person came out about the one year mark and did another amazing walk through. Again, we did not have any issues, but he found some were normal wood and dry wall has settled - dried out, and had the painters come back and touch up. Overall, this was a great building experience. We built a new home back in 1992 and we felt that builder did a fair job at a fair price. The home was solid and met our expectations. The Mayberry experience was way beyond that builder. Mayberry did a great job at a fair price. Kelly was outstanding to work with and great example of Mayberry's customer focus
