Let me start by saying that it was a truly enjoyable as well a professional experience working with Southern Image Design Builders.
It was my wife’s and my desire to have a custom home built at Lake Anna and after meeting with both Jeff and Jean Martin, we selected them as our builder of choice because we got both “Mr. Outside” and “Mrs. Inside”.
Mr. Outside – Jeff Martin, was extremely knowledgeable regarding construction means and materials, and employed the use of experienced local subcontractors. Whenever a question of ‘extras’ came up the costs were discussed prior to the work being done and we either agreed to it or not. This in turn made the closing out of the project easy.
Additionally, Jeff was never adverse to make suggestions to us for items that he thought would improve on our home such as Renai hot water heaters, Superior wall precast foundations, etc.
While most builders are primarily concerned with getting the structure built while leaving the task of selecting the inside appurtinences (paint colors; light/bathroom fixtures; flooring; etc) to the homeowners, this was not the case with Southern Image.
Mrs. Inside – Jean Martin, in our opinion, is an accomplished interior designer. She was extremely helpful to us in making all of the interior selections by having: story boards showing various tile types; carpet color and type; paint colors for each of the rooms; cabinet selections; bathroom fixtures; lighting fixtures; and much more. She even did some outside work regarding selection of the roofing and siding materials. Additionally, she even accompanied us to some of the manufacturers’ shops to help us make selections. I hate to think of what would have happened without her expertise to assist us.
All in all, Southern Image Builders were excellent craftsman in every detail and completed the project to our satisfaction on time and within budget. We highly recommend them to anyone in the market for actrue custom built home.
