My wife and I were new to Traverse City and looking for a builder to finish the basement of the house we just bought. Blake came to us as a referral and although we were talking to several builders at the time, it was clear we were going to work with Blake after the first meeting. It started with his professional demeanor, picked up confidence with is ability to see our vision quickly, and sealed the deal when he committed to work with us on our somewhat complicate timeline. Every interaction thereafter reinforced our great decision to work with Blake and his crew. Professional, detail oriented, always available, and friendly as they come are but a few of the ways to describe Blake. The job was done on time and under budget and we’re already talking to Blake about the next project.

In taking our rustic cabin from an occasional summer cottage to a place we would call home, we were looking for a relationship, not a builder.  Whether it was the design, estimating, or construction phase, Blake was with us every step of the way with both a professional and personal touch, exceeding expectations on all fronts!
