    In a competitive field of home builders it’s hard enough to find out who to trust and look far enough into the future to really understand who is capable of building the home you’ve always wanted, and it’s harder still to make it a reality — but throughout the building process, I’ve seen Ron do this for us.

    His ability to read our desires, identify barriers, and doggedly pursue getting the biggest bang for the buck set him apart, and he did it with practical analysis and decades-experience savvy which resulted in the house we’ve always wanted. If you’re looking for someone who cares deeply about being a master of his craft, takes the time to listen to his clients, and helps them realize the fine design that homes are capable of, look no further than Ron.

    Excellent to work with, listens to your ideas, and delivers a beautiful finished product.

    Working with Ron McGillem, we found that being involved in the process from the initial design through to completion was an exciting and enjoyable experience.  Ron always provided logical and appropriate advice as well as excellent monthly reports, from which we could monitor the cost aspect of the job.  If we ever have the opportunity to build again, Ron will be our choice in Builders!

    Ron built a beautiful home for us and his expertise was invaluable in helping us make the many decisions required during the building process.  We found him to be both available and attentive to our many questions and concerns.  We have since recommended him to friends who have used him to build their homes as well.

    Working with Ron during the construction of our new home was truly a professional and win-win experience.  His calm demeanor and get it done attitude was consistent throughout.  He showed us that old school honesty and exceptional quality standards do still exist.  Ron delivered exactly what we designed and even more than we expected!
