Mr. Powell lives by a code of integrity. He lives in his work and life what he believes. We hired Mr. Powell to do extensive work for us. He framed an unusual home; a 2 story farmhouse. The bottom level is 1950 square foot shop, and exercise room, and top is 1950 square foot residence. Codes are strict for a shop under a residence, which we were not aware of at the time. He worked to frame the entire house, built a 16 x 30 foot deck 14 feet high which has strict codes by itself due to wind load, and framed the inside of the house. He installed our windows and many doors.. In a project this size, we had made changes. He worked with us.. We worked with him. He built the shaft for the elevator. He worked with my husband to figure out design challenges, and when something didn't work or wasn't right, he stuck with it until we got it right. He roofed our house, put in skylights. And sided the house, and put siding under the eves on one side. I would say his expertise is in the building aspect more than finish work. These are two separate skillsets. Mr. Powell's wife was very ill. Even with all that going on in his personal life, he worked hard and it is the job of a customer to have compassion on others' too. He is professional, he supervises his crew, and his prices are most reasonable. If anyone is looking for perfection in a process this size, you will be disappointed. My measure of success is in how problems are handled, not that there will not be any problems. Sometimes things like weather push back everyone. And that did happen. Then crews get behind on other work, just like flying out of an airport after inclement weather, everyone is scrambling to make everyone happy. It is a difficult job. Because every customer wants to be first. Inevitably someone will become impatient. When I know I am a priority, I can have patience. If I feel I am not important to a contractor, I will not be a priority. I never felt this way with Powell Construction.. I would hire him and his crew in a minute again. I just passed final inspection, and am very relieved. Codes change and we had to comply with some new updates. Thank you Mr. Powell for building us a beautiful home!
