Get a Realistic View of Your Project

You know exactly what you want – and it’s our job to translate that into a design you can easily view, consider, and approve. We do this by tapping into the power of technology – using 3D design to deliver services in the most visual way possible.When designing in 3D, you’ll notice seamless communication and reduced design times. Also, you’ll be able to experience improved design quality and interior design options. You’ll benefit from realistic renderings and easy future reference/editing. And most importantly, it helps you avoid costly mistakes.

Accurate, Informative Finish Schedules 

Breaking Down a Large Project into the Smallest Details 

A finish schedule specifies the interior finish material for each room and floor in your home. This picture-perfect, informative breakdown gives our construction team all the information they need to make sure the walls, floors, ceilings, baseboards, doors, and window trim look exactly the way you want them to. It’s a simple process we use to make sure your home is safe, secure, and strong – and most importantly, reflecting your ultimate vision for the project.

{“Some sixteen months ago when we first started thinking about building our third new home, we were a bit nervous about tackling a 6,000 square foot project. We had experienced less than favorable results with the two different contractors we had used in 1977 and 1990. We asked many couples who they would recommend, and the Bruckelmyer name came up several times. Realtors, lenders, and homeowners all urged us to meet with you. After our first meeting, Cheryl was convinced she wanted to hire your firm. Being the skeptical person I am, I felt I needed to get proposals. After obtaining proposals from other contractors, we asked to visit with former clients of each builder to get their feedback. Every Bruckelmyer homeowner sang your praises. This was very comforting and made us confident that we would be pleased with choosing your firm. Two of the three Bruckelmyer homeowners stated emphatically that we really didn’t need to get bids. We would be better off just hiring Bruckelmyer Brothers to do the work and not worry about price. (As it turned out your firm offered the best value of any of the firms we sought bids from.) Now that you have completed our new home, I just can’t tell you how thrilled we are with the superb job you did for us. The words that come to mind when describing your firm and your subcontractors are: talented, knowledgeable, honest, hard-working, reliable, and humble. The first thing that surprised me was that your crews showed up every day, all day, on time. The job site was far cleaner than any builder we’ve used in the past and your workers were pleasant, polite, and accommodating. The quality of work, from the masons, framers, electricians, plumbers, sheet rockers, painters, and finishing carpenters was uniformly great. No one ever cut corners, no one ever complained about the many change orders we requested, and everyone on the job-site was a pleasure to work with. As you know I decided along the way to hire out a very small portion of the work to certain sub-contractors. For each portion I decided to tackle on my own, I ended up with less than stellar results. In every case, I should have used the folks you recommended. Every sub-contractor that you used performed with the same high quality that we hoped for. I learned a valuable lesson, and that was to let the general contractor be responsible for the entire project. I must also mention that having your firm make all of our cabinetry was one of the smartest moves we made. The craftsmanship was awesome. Cheryl and I would be most pleased to show any prospective client our beautiful new home. Please call us at any time for a showing. We both want to thank you again for the terrific job you did for us. Should we ever decide to build again, we’ll make only one call, and that’s to Bruckelmyer Brothers!!”
{“Thank you so much for all the excellent work you, your crews, and your subcontractors provided. We love our home. The finished product far exceeds our hopes. It is beautifully finished, and the workmanship is superior to any we’ve seen before.” Thank you for everything!
