J.A. Hand Construction, Inc.
Home Builders in Lake Oswego, OR
"Jeff Hand has remodeled two bathrooms and a front porch for me, and supervised the construction of a concrete staircase. Jeff is a master craftsman, does immaculate carpentry, and he is a perfectionist. He is completely transparent about costs and timing, knowledgeable about all aspects of construction, and highly skilled in dealing with subcontractors and material suppliers. I've relied on Jeff for both design and execution. His solutions are practical and elegant. Examples: putting a washer and dryer under a long countertop in a narrow bathroom and making it work both visually and functionally; designing and building (from scratch, and in the pouring rain) a new front porch that gives character to an otherwise dull Victorian. In every case his eye for design is ruled by proper building technique. He pays equal attention to the overall scheme and the smallest detail. I give him the highest recommendation."

He stays current with new products, designs, and skills. He listened well and represented our interests to make sure we were happy with the outcome. We love our new home and enjoyed working with Mike through the entire process."

Legacy Built
Home Builders in Lake Oswego, OR
"We were first time home buyers and met Phillip when he had already framed the home. We were nervous committing so early in the project but Phillip arranged for us to tour homes he had recently built so we could see examples of the quality we could expect. After several meetings with him we took the plunge. There were no surprises along the way. During the final phases of construction it was apparent he had a great relationship with his subs and was well respected. Phillip and his team stood behind the build 100% during the warranty period. Would not hesitate to buy another home built by Phillip if we ever move."
- Jeff Duman
Skreen Construction, Inc.
Home Builders in Lake Oswego, OR
"Brad Skreen did renovations of three bathrooms and one laundry room for us. They weren't total tear-outs and rebuilds, and Brad was easy to work with in meeting our needs and budgets. What little work we weren't totally satisfied with was quickly corrected. In fact, Brad noticed some defects in work that we hadn't seen and had them corrected. He did a good job in ordering tile (not overbuying), guiding us to suppliers and hiring high quality workmen. He was onsite once or twice almost every day work was being done. When a tub was chipped during demolition, he took care of the repair out of his pocket. I wouldn't say his price was cheap, but it seemed entirely reasonable. Some months after the bathroom work, no problems have cropped up."
