“It was difficult leaving the home where we raised our daughters, but thanks to Tom and his ever present smile, building our new home was exciting. We were never stressed because Tom proved himself to be a dependable, hands on builder.”
Testimonial to Pioneer Builders
After 34 years in a beautiful house that we lovingly molded into our dream home, we reluctantly came to the realization that a house with stairs was no longer practical for us. But where do you go when you love the area in which you have been living for its convenience to stores, gas stations, Buckland Mall, church, hospital, and your backyard abuts a golf course? We searched for a year, but none of the many houses we looked at compared favorably to our home. All that time we drove frequently by Middlefield Estates, a mile away from our home. When there was an Open House, we decided to check it out, not expecting it to meet the high standards of Paul, who is both a civil engineer and a carpenter.
To our delight we found an extremely well constructed house, and met Tom Savage, a builder who’s hallmark is quality construction. Several months later our new dream home was under construction, and daily we came to admire Tom for his integrity and work ethic. He understood what we wanted and needed in our retirement home and made sure that we got it.
Tom was always accommodating whether it was jump starting Paul’s car or allowing Paul to build bookcases during the construction. We found that his subcontractors respected him as much as we did, which contributed to a well built house.
It was difficult leaving the home where we raised our daughters, but thanks to Tom and his ever present smile, building our new home was exciting. We were never stressed because Tom proved himself to be a dependable, hands on builder.
In conclusion, we are delighted with our new home, and consider its construction a wonderful period in our lives. We recommend Pioneer Builders to anyone thinking of building a new home, and Middlefield Estates to anyone looking for a serene country setting near every amenity in the beautiful town of Ellington.
