Mark & Hilary, Waterford

Amity Construction & Design completed two projects for us. The first project (1995) was a 550 square foot Great Room addition to my home, the second project (2003) was a 43square foot accessory apartment added to my home to house an elderly parent.

Amity Construction & Design worked with us from concept and design, through successful completion of both projects.  I acted as my own general contractor (not something I recommend for the weak of heart) on both projects. Due to cooperative subcontractors, the first project was done in less than 7 weeks. The second project took longer, as the subcontractors were busier than the time of the first project.

In both projects, Russ Smith acted as a source of information, and guidance.  Both additions are built much more energy efficient than the original home, which was built in 1992.  The use of half inch foam panels in the walls, and one inch foam panels in the ceilings added an unexpected level of sound proofing to the expected increase in R value.

Russ supervised the carpentry on both projects, and often arrived before his crew to complete task lists, ensure the previous days progress was appropriate, and answer any questions that I had.

We are completely satisfied with Amity Construction &Design, and have recommended them to our friends.
