I found the right Consutruction Company: Customer Testimonial

In April of 2006 I moved to Mills County to enjoy my retirement years.  I purchased a home built in approximately 1915, and shortly realized that it was in relatively poor condition; uninsulated, and susceptible to fire, insects, and wind.
During the next 7 years, I ran up two power bills of  bills of $500.00 each, once during a hot summer, and again in a cold winter.  I had  a window blown clear into the living room by a high wind, and almost lost my home twice to grass fires; being saved both times by my next door neighbor’s bulldozer cutting a fire line in front of the flames.
I began to search for a better home, and finally settled on a steel-framed home for it’s fire and wind resistance.  That company erected the steel framework, the roof, and the outer walls.
As the crew packed up, I began to search for local companies already familiar with steel-framed homes, but could find none who could complete my home with the features I desired, for a price I could afford.
I followed  up on local radio and newspaper ads, and interviewed several groups of people who professed to have experience and equipment necessary to complete my home.  I declined all offers for being too expensive or for not having the appropriate experience and the necessary equipment.
Eventually, my girlfriend told me of an area family she had come into contact with that consisted of very nice adults and children, and her co-workers said they were in the construction business!
I went to the Tunnell Construction office one day at about 5PM, and saw no less than eight, well-maintained trucks with the Tunnell Construction sign on the door.
Inside the office were friendly, helpful, and upbeat employees who promised to come out very soon to give me an estimate on turning my steel shell of a house, into a turn-key home.  We had a deal!
After laying dormant for two months my house began to suddenly come to life.  The Tunnel crews began arriving, and  I found they were skilled, well-equipped with appropriate equipment, and showed a remarkable degree of professionalism.
A supervisor many of you know; Josh Stevens, came by the site early in the morning, and again in the evening, carefully scrutinizing what the crew had done that day, and not leaving without my complete approval.
Any issues regarding appearance, quality control, and materials were addressed on the spot.  The few changes or improvements exceeded my expectations, and all work was completed by professional workmen and supervisors who were not satisfied until I was completely happy.
My home is looking better every day.
I would hire Tunnell again in a minute.
