Custom home build for Dee Dee Simmons, Blue Springs, Missouri.
Anything I really wanted to do, Nate found a way to do it.
I’ve always wanted to build my own house. I’m a very creative person, I love design, and I work in real estate. At the end of 2017, the time was finally right to do it. So I got to work researching what features I wanted and brainstormed with my architect to design the perfect home for me and my family’s needs.
The original builder I was going to work with was moving, and she highly recommended Nate to replace her. She told me he did a quality job, that he had lots of integrity, and that he was good with people and relationships. I found out she was right.

Custom home addition for the Paradise family, Mission, Kansas.
Nate was very flexible with the evolution of the project.
We had hired Nate to finish a rec room in our basement in late 2018. We had also been sitting on some plans we had for a kitchen addition, and the timing was finally right, so we rolled right from one project into the next. We started around March, and Nate got us into our kitchen right before Christmas that year!
Nate was a good fit for us. We had a lot of ideas, and during those first couple of meetings, we sometimes would weave on and off of our original plan. Nate was good at adapting and being able to do whatever we put down on paper.

Basement finish for the Ritter family, Lenexa, Kansas.
After meeting Nate, I decided to have Nate do it all.
When we first started talking about finishing our basement, I was 90 percent committed to doing the general contracting myself. I thought I’d save some money, and I had a list of trade guys from my neighbor, who works in construction. That was the plan: get quotes and do it all myself. But I’m friends with Nate’s younger brother, Matt, and he connected us. After meeting Nate, I decided to have Nate do it all.
It was that human connection. He gives you the facts and keeps it realistic. He didn’t do what other contractors sometimes do: slap a quote in front of you that’s way too high or unrealistic. Nate’s demeanor just made me comfortable with him right away.
