WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY ABOUT US!
“We rate ENERGY STAR homes and have a unique perspective since we see many homes from many good builders. The first time we were in one of Nelu’s homes we were impressed with his building skills and, as we work with him, we are also impressed with his commitment to quality. With every house he builds, he tries to make it more comfortable and energy efficient for his clients while always including special features and personal touches tailored to each client.
Nelu personally oversees the construction of each home and spends whatever time is necessary with each client to make sure the house is just what they want. Needless to say, his clients love him.
Nelu and Lisa are wonderful to work with both because of the quality of their homes and also because they make the process enjoyable and fun. Absolute Construction is always one of the builders we recommend.”

“We chose to work with Absolute because they came highly recommended. Our expectations have been exceeded at every turn. Nelu and Lisa Skumpija are a wonderful team who make a daunting project as stress-free as possible, and in the process you get to know them as friends. Absolute’s subcontractors are part of the team, and their competence and commitment are apparent when you first meet them. Everyone pulls together to overcome any challenge, no matter how large or small, to build a quality house and meet the clients’ needs. We could not be happier with the way this project has gone.”
Pat M. & Bev D. – Chapel Ridge
“Thank you for building us our dream home. Everyone who has seen our house has been in awe by the workmanship, care and professionalism exhibited. We have been wanting to build a home for a long time and we are so happy that we found Nelu and Lisa. They took the time to explain each process and made sure we were happy with the results along the way. They are truly caring people and wanted nothing more than to build our home exactly how we imagined. We love coming home and saying ‘This is our home’.
Thank you again Nelu and Lisa. This really is our dream home!!!”
Al and Shannon R. – Chatham County
“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-contractors gave 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.”
Rod & Susan H. – Chapel Ridge
“It was a pleasure to work with Absolute Construction. Their craftsmanship and attention to detail exceeded our expectations. Nelu and Lisa kept us actively involved in the entire process even though we were out of state. They were very amenable to answering any question and concern no matter how small.”
Jim & Laraine Sedlmeyer – Chapel Ridge
“Choosing Absolute Construction to build our new home was a great decision. Nelu and Lisa went above and beyond our expectations of making sure we’d stay in budget even before we signed the contract, and have been a pleasure to work with ever since. You’ll always see Nelu at the job site, and when an issue has come up, he’d resolve it quickly and to our satisfaction. And Lisa has been in constant communication with us to help make this process go as smoothly as possible.
We’ve been extremely happy with our choice of Absolute Construction.”
Troy and Charlene S., Pittsboro – Chapel Ridge
“We selected Absolute Construction as our builder for a variety of reasons, but after visiting the homes that Nelu built, we were sold! The craftsmanship, style and attention to detail were exactly what we were looking for and our new home can now be added to the list of beautiful homes in Chatham County.
Living out of state for the entire building process could have been a significant disadvantage and we were concerned about it at the beginning. However, Lisa and Nelu were diligent about keeping us informed of the construction progress and expenses. We received electronic photos regularly which thrilled us to no end. When we were able to visit, Nelu arranged meetings with contractors according to our schedules and they were generous with their time and attention to us.
Nelu and Lisa are a complete package and an effective team throughout the process. Lisa’s attention to detail in all things financial is something that cannot be overlooked. She acted as a liaison with the vendors, intervening on our behalf when necessary and settling any potential conflicts. They are both true to their word and honored all commitments to us.
Our new home is really a life–long dream come true and we are so happy with the end product. We believe that Lisa and Nelu were the main reason that we had an overall fantastic experience. Their flexibility, integrity and skill make them a solid and smart choice for anyone considering building a home.”
Debra and Eloisa, Pittsboro – Silk Hope
“Thank you for building me a beautifully constructed home. Everyone who has seen my house, both in its early stages and in its completed state, has been captivated by the workmanship, care and professionalism exhibited. The quantative evidence of this is the 72 Energy Star rating: energy efficiency must be below 86 to qualify for Energy Star status.
I am also grateful to you both for working with me from the beginning, when I was very much in doubt whether this project could be done, through the difficult financing process. You understood that I had a tight budget and worked with me so well that I had money left to cover the cost of permits and other such expenses I thought I would have to pay out-of-pocket (and which you graciously paid up front).
All in all it was a fun experience, at least for me. Thank you for helping my dream come true in such a wonderful and gorgeous fashion. I wish you both much happiness in the future.”
Carol P. – Siler City – Silk Hope
“I just want to thank you for making all the horror stories I’ve heard about contractors go away. Your vision of what should be in a home matched ours so closely that we no longer are looking for a custom builder.
Since we have moved in and are enjoying our new home, we especially appreciate you stopping by just to check on things to make sure all is well. I never thought that any builder, after the sale, would come looking for things to fix.
Thanks again for your old fashion work ethic, it is appreciated more than you can imagine.”
Scott and Cheryl B., Pittsboro – Chapel Ridge
“Finding a Builder is one thing….but finding an unbelievably talented, caring builder is an entirely different experience. If you choose Absolute Construction, Nelu Skumpija as your Builder you are truly Blessed!
My husband and I chose to purchase one of Nelu’s homes in Chapel Ridge. First of all, the home is gorgeous and well built down to the very last detail inside and out. Nelu is incredibly detailed and wanted to make sure our move-in punch list and a few last details were completed. Nelu’s team of workers arrived at our home and ready to work. It is rare you find a builder who fulfills their promises even after you move in.
It is obvious that Nelu Skumpija not only cares about his work, and his clients but his team of professionals working with him as well.
My husband and I love our new home. We are enjoying the new experience of living in a home where all work is completed and everything in the home actually works. You can’t go wrong with Absolute Construction and Nelu Skumpija.”
Tony and Anne-Marie D., Pittsboro – Chapel Ridge
“We have nothing but good things to say about Absolute Construction. We had pretty much only heard horror stories about building a house so we were very skeptical of each builder we interviewed. We chose Absolute Construction because, before a contract was ever signed, they were very willing to work with us to be sure we could get what we wanted while staying within our budget. Lisa also answered hundreds of questions via phone and e-mail, usually within minutes. Other prospective builders took days to get back to us.
The quality of work is fantastic, they don’t cut corners or buy the cheapest materials just to make an extra buck. Although Lisa and Nelu do a great job in general, it’s the almost constant communication that really separates them from anyone else. I fully recommend Absolute Construction as a builder.”
Michael and Brianne K. – Silk Hope
“Throughout the construction period, Nelu and Lisa and their team provided continuous support and assistance with desired design modifications and material selections. The outstanding workmanship in the construction of our home is clearly evident and warrants high praise. This testimonial summarizes well the very high quality of our home and our appreciation for the Absolute Construction team for working closely with us and patiently helping us with the many decisions and details of the home! We highly recommend them to build your home!”
