"We are writing to thank you for your services during our renovation. With your expert assistance during the planning and construction phases, you
were able to transform a structure that did not meet our needs into a home in which we can be comfortable and to which we are proud to invite our family and friends. In addition to the quality craftsmanship and attention to detail, we also want to thank you for listening so carefully to our goals and helping translate those into something that is beautiful and will give us pleasure for years to come. Throughout the process, we always felt like you had our best interests at heart, and it was clear that you both wanted us to be happy with the project. Your commitment to the project resulted in a home we enjoy and peace of mind knowing it was done right. Please let us know if we can recommend your services to others as we would be happy to discuss the project with your prospective clients, should they request a reference. And finally, we hope you’ll consider us as some of the “good friends” you have made over the years and wish you well as you serve the Brainerd Lakes Area"
