Dear John,
Twenty years ago I was looking through one of my home decorating magazines and I found a blue print for a house and fell in love.  I
tore the page out and kept it all these years.  Five years ago that dream house became a reality.  Joe and I bought a piece of land on
Lake Limestone.  In the process of clearing the land we met a couple of young men working a bull dozer.  We asked them if they knew
of a good builder and they both recommended someone new to the area who was building his own home.  After our initial visit with
you, we knew you were the builder for us.  Your attention to detail reminded us of my carpenter father and we were sold.  You came to
look at the property and with you, Joe & I sitting under a tree we went over the plans.  Within a few months we moved into our new
home and we grow fonder of the house day by day.

Even though we complimented you on the way you handled the building of the house at the time we moved in, we wanted to tell you
again how much we enjoyed working with you.  We were living and working in Houston when we bought the property.  We could only
come up on weekends to check on the construction.  We had heard such horror stories about building a house and we held our
breath the first time we visited the site.  But, you and your crew made the whole process “painless”.  Everything was completed in an
orderly and professional manner.  The quality of the products selected to build the house were above par.  We still marvel at how
efficiently the house runs.  

So John we just decided after five years you should know that we still think you are the best builder in Texas and when it comes time
for additional construction work we will be calling on you to complete another dream!

Sincerely,
Peggy & Joe Caldwell

Dear John and Pam,

I wanted to take the opportunity to thank you for the exceptional work done by you and
your team on our new cabin.  The expectations we had were exceeded by you and
those you hired to work on this project.  There was no need for us to interfere because
you have higher standards than we had, and your attention to detail was greater.

John, your ability to envision a design greater than the one we initially requested,
resulted in a higher quality home than we ever dreamed of.  I thank you for the photos
that were sent to us each day, allowing us to see the construction progress even though
we were miles away.  The commitment and constant communication on your part and
those of your team was a level of service we had not experienced before.

Your company is reliable, trustworthy, and talented.  I have already recommended you to
several people, and I am looking forward to telling many others about the quality of your
work.  You have built us a cabin that we will be proud to pass on to future generations.

In addition to both of you, we enjoyed meeting so many other nice people on this
project.  The contractors and teams you put in place were great.  Please pass our
personal thanks on to everyone that participated in this project.

Regards,


Lee and Leslie Doran
