Here’s what others are saying:

Margie D.

New Home

Dennis Ployhar is the general contractor and owner of this business. He recently com-pleted the building of my new home in Northern Idaho. Dennis was asked to build this home while I lived in Massachusetts. No easy feat building a retirement home with the owner at such a great distance. The home is 3700 2-story home that was designed largely by myself however the contributions of Dennis cannot be overlooked. He was a significant contributor to the overall design and construction elements of the home that has made it exceptional! Throughout the process Dennis remained involved, on site, in contact twice a week to review progress and issues and was a master at choosing his sub-contractors and everyone's adherence to detail. Dennis was on budget, on time and there was never a single incidence where his integrity could be questioned. I simply can't say enough good things about this man and his business. You will be well served if you were to hire him for your new home or remodeling project.

We would like to thank you for everything you did to turn our plans into reality. We never expected to own a house we would love as much as this one. We are truly proud and happy to show it off. Thank you so much for turning our dream into a reality in such a painless way.

Coeur d Alene

One of the biggest challenges with our particular addition was making the roof lines “tie in”, but Dennis did an excellent job of designing and constructing a roof line that matched so good that it actually improved on the original looks of the home… His bid was very reasonable ( and there were no “unexpected” or “hidden” additional costs) but the quality of work and materials were excellent… It’s one thing to build a home from blueprint, but it takes creativity and extra effort to incorporate an addition to an existing house and make it not look like an addition… Dennis did not ask me to write this letter of recommendation, but he did such a good job with our project that I took it upon myself to draft this letter.
