“John built our house for us about six years ago. We had frequent contact with him and with Merja throughout the building process. Merja was of great help in planning the process and John was professional and approachable throughout the time it took to build the house. The site had its problems which delayed the building process and we appreciated John’s support during that time, John was professional, responsive and fair. We enjoyed working with John and Merja.
