We were fortunate to find Aaron Dunn (Big Twig Homes) as the primary contractor to coordinate the construction. [...] This decision would become the backbone of the successful construction of our home. Not only was the construction timely but the contractors selected were of the highest quality. [...] All of the finish work performed by the carpenters in the interior of the house was nothing less than cabinetmakers quality. All of the joints and fits on the interior walls with no exaggeration were precision fits showing the attention to detail and high standard that they invested into their entire project."
