Homeland Construction Specialists Inc transformed our Kirkland cottage, inside and out. With Ray and Lynn Brimhall at the helm, the process went much more smoothly than expected, and our home looks wonderful. It has been an amazing process to see our home reach its potential. Quality of Work – Workmanship is high-quality, with attention to structure/code, quality materials, and aesthetic detail. The updates blend well with the existing house for a cohesive and period-appropriate look. Communication Skills – Our needs and vision were taken into account throughout. The Brimhalls have a knack for judging when to let the customer make the call and when to guide or suggest. Ray’s recommendation on cabinet providers (Huntwood), for example, set the stage for an amazing yet affordable kitchen upgrade. Worksite Management – The process was well-orchestrated to enable steady progress. The worksite was kept swept and debris frequently hauled away, and everyone was considerate and respectful of our family. Clear, accurate billing – The bills were clear and detailed, and we felt prices were reasonable. Despite multiple primary and secondary projects, and a few changes, we were never surprised by an expense. Problem-solving – As little bumps or changes inevitably arose – as expected in the remodel of an older home - Ray and Lynn worked through them with patience and creativity. Quality of Professionals Involved – Everyone associated with the project seemed skilled, personable, and trustworthy, whether as part of the contract or specialists they recommended. We’re grateful to have worked with so many terrific people, including plumbing, cabinet installation, electric, framing, siding, dry wall, tile, HVAC, painting, door installation, hardwood, masonry, and more. We’re satisfied with our choice of Homeland Construction Specialists and wouldn't consider working with another general contractor in the Puget Sound. Our only regret is we are moving out of state, and this company is one of a kind.
