We did the usual inspections of John’s previous work and felt pretty happy that he could tackle the job. What I didn’t appreciate until later were the challenges associated with the very ﬁne tolerances of the house, and the locally difﬁcult conditions, by the ocean. John performed superbly.
John is a perfectionist and that translates into an owner’s attitude to the project. This resulted in only ‘light touch’ inputs from us, and absolutely no dramas. John teamed well with everyone on the project and was fastidious in selecting the best subcontractors. His tradesmen all worked to the same text and as a result we have a house that we still admire for its building quality.
