Every time we watch the TV series “Holmes on Homes”, we say thank goodness we had the foresight and good fortune to choose Jim Connolly and Bristol as our builder. Jim was not the cheapest quote (word of advice to homeowners… NEVER go with the cheapest quote because it includes a lot of shortcuts you’re not going to like); however, he impressed us with his vast knowledge, experience and samples of his other building projects.
Our renovation was probably the most complex and challenging project a builder could tackle. Our home was a barn built in the 1800’s and originally renovated in the mid 70’s. Nothing in the home was square or level. Jim had to put an addition on 3 sides, make them level and tie them in with the original structure. Jim also had to build an absolutely vertical elevator shaft on a wall that was 5” out from top to bottom. We cannot say enough about Jim and his crew…polite, neat, and nothing is ever a problem that can’t be solved. Our renovation passed every building inspection with flying colours and in the end, was completed on time and on budget. Choosing Jim will ensure you will never be featured on “Holmes on Homes “ construction disasters.
