After interviewing several builders, we chose Mindful Designs to build our custom, high-end dream home— and we could not be more pleased! The style of home we wanted to build was definitely “outside the box”, with clean, contemporary lines, lots of architectural detail, unique finishes, and seamless integration of the indoor and outdoor living spaces. From the beginning, we were impressed with Marty’s enthusiasm and his desire to understand and deliver on our vision. He quickly grasped the aesthetic we were seeking, and he collaborated with us and offered great suggestions to make sure that our desired result was achieved.
We were living out of state during much of the building process, but Marty was always accessible, promptly returning phone calls and keeping us regularly informed. Early on, Mindful Designs produced a very detailed budget, and their online budgeting and billing tools, together with prompt processing of change orders, allowed us to keep track of costs and make informed decisions from afar. The final cost of our home (excluding change orders for upgrades and additions that we elected to make) was less than 1% over the original budget, which is quite remarkable for a high-end, 15-month project!
On a personal level, Marty was also a great guy to work with. His “can do” attitude, passion for his work and high energy level are infectious, and he fosters a wonderful team atmosphere on the job site. We were very impressed with all of the subcontractors we met. They were professional, courteous and caring.
Being from Texas, we did not realize how much goes into building a home in the mountains. In this regard, we greatly appreciated Marty’s experienced guidance, his remarkable knowledge of all facets of home construction, and his strong commitment to building us a tight, energy-efficient home that can withstand the elements and that we will enjoy for many years to come.
In short, we cannot recommend Mindful Designs more highly. If you are looking for a builder that is truly committed to building a quality home, that delivers on time and on budget, and that is a pleasure to work with, you need look no further than Mindful Designs.
