Marnie knows her business well and she continues to learn from each of the new homes she builds. We had a great time building our home with her and we have been so happy to see her continued successes in Bethany.
We were Marnie's first home and hiring her was the best decision we could have made.
Our venture began in Septmber 2007 with the teardown of our beloved little cottage. We had rented it for years and then finally bought it in 1986, so we had a lot of memories with our kids and some of our first grandchildren. It was hard to see it go but Marnie's enthusiasm for the new home made it easier to accept. We knew it was the right move.
We had our plans ready and it wasn't long before the new foundation covered most of our lot. We live in Virginia so this limited us to working with Marnie on the weekends. This never caused a problem. As the house began to go up, Marnie was always there for us to discuss what was going on. While at home in Virginia, I would receive weekly reports of the work being done and the costs. This was how the entire construction process went until the home was finished.
We had a lot of changes as we went along and sometimes Marnie seemed to be more excited about them than we were. Ideas seemed to become reality overnight and each one made the new home so much more "ours". We built out all the window trim so our blinds would fit flush, Marnie designed our main hallway from a picture my wife had found and it turned out better than the picture, we made a small playroom under the steps which has become the grandkids favorite space, we put a little play area in a bedroom, we added a 1/2 bath for the kids, Marnie changed the angles and heights of the bedroom ceilings just for variety. We even changed out some upstairs windows for doors and decks. The reaction to almost every idea was "sure, we can do that", so we did.
We now have a home that feels like "us"and we walk around sometimes realizing just how fortunate we are. The memories of the old cottage remain and we already have great memories with our new one. After we had moved in, Marnie stopped by and presented us with a book that was a pictured story from the teardown of the old house to the finished new house. The book and the thoughtfulness are very special to us.
Through the entire process, she was an absolute pleasure to work with and we have developed a special friendship. In the off-season, we usually get together for an occasional dinner and catch up on what we've all been doing. It has been a great experience and we wish Marnie all the best in the future.
