Case Studies

Whole House Renovation - Lake Home

We bought our cottage in 1987. The entire place was knotty pine and incredibly cozy. Everyone who visited knew that there was a lot of love in the walls; it was a very special place. As our family grew to include five children and eight grandchildren it became apparent that we needed more than one bathroom and space to stretch out.

We knew that it was going to take a unique company to handle the “rebuilding” of a place so near to our hearts; especially while we were living hours away. It was imperative that we work with a team that had a long track record of successful projects and satisfied clients. We chose to work with McBride Construction, Inc. because of the accolades they received from several of our neighbors, the quality of their workmanship, and their decades of experience.

We feel fortunate to have worked with McBride Construction. They made the entire process of rebuilding our cottage stress-free. We were told that we could hand over the keys and they would take care of the rest. Whenever we had a question it was answered promptly and every person who worked on our home was incredibly professional. We were able to trust them completely and ultimately they became like family. Even after the project was completed, members of the McBride team were stopping by to make sure that every detail was to our liking. The quality of their workmanship is outstanding and nothing was overlooked.

We are so pleased with the finished product. Even though our place is much larger, the cottage is still cozy, warm and relaxing thanks to the crew at McBride Construction. We have family and friends from all over the world that come back year after year because there is something about our cottage that is so special. We credit the McBride crew for accomplishing something even we weren’t sure was possible…our new cottage is just as near and dear to us as the original was.

We are so thankful to have worked with McBride Construction, Inc. to rebuild our cottage. The entire team was professional, consistently went above expectations and earned our trust completely. There wasn’t a detail that was skipped over and we know that the value of working with McBride Construction, Inc. was worth every cent. – Sue Ford, Burt Lake
