Nearing retirement, we determined the need for a ranch style home and extensively searched for one that met our present and future needs. Finding none, we decided to design our own to replace our existing home of 35 years and developed our dream house plans. After interviewing and checking references for several builders, we selected Norway and have since realized that was one of the best decisions we made.
Working closely with Bob, we made several changes to the initial plans that saved costs and added functionality. Additionally, many changes were made during construction from excavation to final occupancy that improved our vision of what we wanted. Bob worked side by side with us to custom design many details to include the door and window trims, breakfast bar facade, fireplace and mantel, bathrooms, front foyer and skylights (to name a few) as construction progressed, always ensuring the use of quality materials and workmanship.
Best of all, there were no delays in the overall schedule, while maintaining costs within our budget, as a result of Maryanne’s efforts. In fact, work was completely in 7 months, a full month earlier than our original projections.
Norway far exceeded our expectations in making our dream house a reality to enjoy for many years to come as we develop it into our new home with new traditions and memories.
