Customer Testimonials



Dear Hunter:

I am writing to both thank you and commend you for the outstanding job you did building our new home.

In the fall of 2004, when we first began the process, you were there for us with suggestions and answers to many questions. Your patience was tested with our many questions and we appreciated the way you took the time to respond to us.

I listened to many friends who told me what a nightmare building a new home and dealing with contractors was. We found the process completely different than that and we can attribute it all to you. You did everything you promised, on time and on budget. We are extremely pleased with the quality of workmanship and the effort you and your subcontractors put into the details.

Please feel free to show this letter to potential customers and if they wish to speak to Jody and I, we will be happy to tell them the wonderful experience we had with Briard Construction.

Hanson Custom Built HomeWe hired Briard Construction to build our first home. We had such a positive experience with Hunter and his crew, that we hired them back again to finish the basement in our current home.

We were pleased with the quality of craftsmanship and the attention to detail on each project. We were also impressed with the working relationship we established with Hunter. He is personable, talented in his craft, and readily available to discuss concerns/changes on the project. We will definitely hire Briard Construction for any and all future projects!

Our home construction experience with Briard Construction was enjoyable from start to finish. We believe that Briard Construction helped bring our dream home to life. Along with Hunter's design team, Hunter's input and suggestions were invaluable.

Hunter's work ethic and craftsmanship met and even exceeded our expectations. He made himself readily available to answer questions throughout the entire process and long after completion. We would and have highly recommended Briard Construction for building and remodeling needs.

Why We Would Have Hunter Briard Build Our Next Home...
Anstett custom built home
That statement is true, except, we so love the lake home he built for us that we will probably not build again. Our experience working with Hunter was most likely the best professional relationship we have ever experienced. From our first conversations about the possibility of tearing down our old cabin and replacing it with a new structure, Hunter was a joy to work with. He was always on time for meetings, always had great ideas and always followed through on whatever was the next step.

He was able to time our project so that the old structure was removed in late October and our new home was ready the following spring, so we never missed any time at the lake. We had total confidence in Hunter and his crew and with the high quality suppliers and subs he works with.

We would be happy to discuss our experiences in greater detail and we would be proud to give you a tour of the place he built for us, so you can see his workmanship.

Stall custom built home

Working with Briard Construction has been a new and challenging experience.  Challenging on his part not ours.  He quoted 4 different plans for us until we were comfortable with both the plan and the budget before we went ahead.  Hunter also chose sub-contractors that were ex tremely great to work with.  My husband was overseas for 90% of the project so I needed questions answered and was never afraid to ask him a dumb one. 

Briard stated timelines of when things would be done and they were right on track.  He  listed when certain decisions needed to be made by to keep the project going on schedule as well.  Took payments only when agreed upon stages were completed and was happy with them.  Hunter's a great person to work with and really enjoyed the process.

P.S.   Don't ever be afraid to ask questions and also be open to suggestions because he has the experience of different floor plans and materials that can extend the life of your home.

To whom it may concern,Current Custom Built Home

In the summer of 2008, we were looking for a contractor to build a home for us. We saw a sign off Hi way 22 for Briard Construction. We gave him a call and Hunter was over later that afternoon to visit with us and look over our plans. By the time he left, after he answered our unending questions, we had found our contractor.

Hunter is a very capable young man and a great home builder, as well as his crew. He kept us informed and stayed on schedule. We came down every day to see how things were coming and we were greeted with smiles every time. We never heard a foul word in all the time they were here.

Hunter is very pleasant and easy to work with and does a wonderful job from beginning to end. We would recommend him to anyone. We love our new home.
