Michelle & I had a most enjoyable experience working with Orv & his crew at Chicaugon Lake Builders.  Our "quaint" little lake cottage exceeded all of our expectations.  During the building process the guys were always willing to assist Michelle & I with any additional changes we wanted to make along the way.  Not once did we every feel that our thoughts and ideas were not important to these guys.  We were greeted daily with a smile and a good morning by each and every member on that crew.  And I have to say... I was "highly impressed"  that not a day went by that Orv himself was not present and working along side his crew.  That's just something you don't always see now a days.... the boss working right alongside his staff!!  Needless to say... Michelle & I would highly recommend Orv & Chicaugon Lake Builders to anyone we know... or for that matter to anyone we don't know!!

Our first building experience was with Chicaugon Lake Builders.  My wife and I decided we would like to invest in a summer home in the Northwoods of Michigan.  This would allow us to enjoy weekends and holidays away from the city life.... which as we all know can become a little much to handle at times.  So upon that decision we purchased a beautiful piece of property in Iron County Michigan.  We then began the process of looking for a reputable general contractor, after meeting with and interviewing several contractors in Iron County area, we decided to go with Chicaugon Lake Builders and hoped we had made the right decision.  Orv's experience in building and straight forward approach resulted in a finished product that we are ABSOLUTELY thrilled with.  Now, we can't wait to come "North" to enjoy our beautiful home on the weekends.  It's everything we had wanted plus a whole lot more!  We have no hesitations in recommending Chicaugon Lake Builders, Orv and his staff to anyone looking to build in the Iron County area.  Thanks Orv for a job well done!!

Our building experience with Chicaugon Lake Builders was wonderful from beginning to end.  Orv and his crew are truly remarkable craftsmen, always professional, lots of fun and hardworking every step of the way.  Each crew member has his own special talent, and watching their creative process unfold as a team was really fascinating and enjoyable to watch and to participate in.  We were always kept informed of details and felt truly part of the team.  

We had never before built a house and entered into the project with some anxiety and trepidation based on other people’s less than happy building experiences with other construction companies.  We were delighted to discover that every idea, opinion and desire we had was met with respect, validation and a sincere commitment to bring our dreams to fruition.  Every detail, from the paperwork to the last nail hammered in was done with accuracy, timeliness, thoroughness, and perfection.  

We are very proud of our home.  It is everything and more than we dreamed of and our relationship with the entire team at Chicaugon Lake Builders continues today as one of great respect and friendship.  We can’t begin to express the depth of our gratitude and praise for the excellent work done by everyone on the team.
