The homeowners are extremely pleased with their new house and wrote this to thank Absolute Construction and Development:
“We can’t thank you enough for helping us to complete our dream home! Thank you for taking the time to listen and understand what we wanted to accomplish in building our new home. Your workmanship was done expertly and professionally. We would highly recommend you to anyone looking to build the perfect dream home. We can’t thank you enough!” The Pikes-Siler City
Signing the contract with the homeowners of this Chapel Ridge home happened in record time – 10 days from the day we met to the day the contract was signed. I had been working with the homeowners for a week trying to find the perfect home and after determining that too many sacrifices would be made with everything we looked at, Rod and Susan decided to design their own home and built it exactly the way they wanted. They found a floor plan that we had built before and made a couple modifications – 3-car garage, large bonus room and covered back deck for Rod and a large walk-in storage room and loft converted to craft room for Susan. Even with the changes we were able to finish the home in just about 5 months without going over budget.
“We never wanted to build a house, heard too many stories of problems with the process, but build we did and we are so happy with our decision. Absolute Construction, Nelu and Lisa Skumpija and their vendors and sub-contractorsgave us a beautiful and well constructed house. They involved us in each step of the process, gave us a list of vendors and a timetable for meeting deadlines for their product lines, and kept us apprised of costs so we stayed in
budget and within the parameters set for completion. Nelu listened to our suggestions for changes and accommodated as many of these ideas as was practical and suggested a few of his own. The end result is more than a quality, Energy Star efficient house; it is our home, unique to us and our needs. As we live in it we hope to take as good of care of it as Absolute Construction did in building it.
Thank you Nelu and Lisa and all your wonderful workers for making our dream come true.”
