We can’t say enough good things about Tim Reilly’s (and his crew’s) knowledge, skills, friendliness, problem-solving abilities, and hard work!  We contacted Tim to help us build the light-clay dream home that we had designed.  In particular, we needed his expertise and exacting labour to put in the foundation, build the double-stud walls, and install the roof.  The work was accomplished in a timely and cost-effective manner.  Tim is very knowledgeable about environmentally responsible building, and he frequently provided us with excellent advice about products and techniques.  He listened to our concerns and suggestions, and he added some lovely timber touches to the structure that make it even more special to us.  We loved how he up-cycled used materials and produced very little waste on the site, which he and his crew left spotlessly clean and ready for us to take over the rest of the construction on our own.  The end result is even better than we’d expected with Tim’s eye for detail and high quality workmanship.  We hope to be able to invite Tim and his crew back in the future to help with other building projects.  Thanks so much, Tim!
