Why did you choose Pickard Construction to build your home?

Charlie is well recognized in the area for building well built homes. We didn’t know many people in the area at the time but numerous people recommended him to us.

What is your favourite feature in the home?

The back deck with the timber frame. We love to sit out on the deck during the day and enjoying the landscape.

Which part of the house do you receive the most comments on?

Hard to say: the laundry room, the kitchen, the great room. I think though the most comment come from the back deck and the workmanship of the timber frame.
