The magic hidden in this home…
"A comment by one of Chris Carey’s contractors gave us our first indication of the type of person Chris is. When we were looking at a home under construction by Chris, a workman volunteered that he was one of the fairest builders he’d ever worked for – that Chris treats everyone well. After hearing similar remarks by others who know Chris, we were convinced that we wanted him as our builder. That was six years ago, and we think even more of him now that our home is finished than we did when we chose him to build for us. That probably can’t be said about every builder!
Our house is Southern in style, with lots of crown molding and mantels. Although Chris usually builds contemporary homes, he seemed to enjoy the challenge of creating a home in another style. He produced the home design that we wanted and used the same high standards of workmanship that are evident in all his projects.
Chris is a man of his word. If he says he will do something, you can be confident that he will follow through. He continued to give us help and advice long after our home was completed.
One of the keys to Chris’ success is the relationship he builds with his contractors. Because he treats them well and values their talents, they do their best for him and the homeowner. Our home could have been a cookie-cutter, but because of the creativity and attention to detail shown by Chris and his workers, every room is unique and beautiful.
When our home was nearing completion, the workmen asked us if they could create a testimonial to our home. They accomplished this by building a box to hold a picture of our home, a description of how it was built, and pictures of our grandchildren. The box is buried, along with a note and a favorite tool from each craftsman, under the stairs to the cellar, where it will remain for future generations. One reason our home is fun to live in is because of our wonderful memories of the people who created it."
