Custom Building and Remodeling Testimonials
“I am gonna miss this great project! Let me try to thank you for the way you managed this project.
Chris, you treated this basement project like it was the biggest and only project you had going. Your attention to even the smallest of things was always very impressive.- for example, moving the drain for the furnace, the floor for the shower, and countless things that I missed entirely.
I have no idea how many times you moved the washer dryer that I left underfoot, and you never once complained. You had really healthy boundaries and it seemed to me you kept your family a priority- also impressive. Your good nature and dependability were evidenced by the highest caliber subs that you have working on your projects- Val, and Sharon and Co., the painters were just some of them.
You never flinched as I added and added to the wish list of things I wanted to have done at 1562. You are your own worst enemy when it comes to this, as you do such excellent work. That creates the desire to “get it done under Chris’ watch” You never abused your authority but you remained an invaluable resource of recommendations when I asked you what you thought I should do.
You taught me a lot about the value of listening- you heard me, even, at times you were able to decipher things in spite my own lack of clarity!! You remained a real champion of this dream- making things happen that I had not thought possible. ( could you make that oven fit into that space?!!)
Thank you for the respect and integrity with which you carried out this process!
I look forward to working with you again Chris.”
“Chris Brousseau’s CJ Development did a major addition and a major remodel on a home for me in the Montclair/Mayfair area of Denver. From the first contact to the last work performed Chris was always on it, always honest, and best of all, always competent to do what the job needed. He did it on time and on budget.
The job was done beautifully. The addition looks like part of the home originally constructed in 1941. He made special efforts on all the details to make sure it always worked for us. I thanked my lucky stars when I met him and I still do now looking back on the project.
There are still honorable, honest and competent people around in the construction trade, and Chris is living proof. Can’t say enough good about him or his work.”
“I am writing you today to let you know how pleased we are with our new home. We feel your company did a wonderful job as it relates to the attention to detail, costumer service and timeliness. We are very pleased that you took the time to design a new home and preserve the beautiful old tree in the front yard.
You have managed to capture just the right amount of ‘new’ to mix with the ‘old’. We have added a pave-stone patio in the spacious back yard and when we are not out back grilling or playing you’ll most likely find us enjoying the covered front porch and friendly neighborhood.
When we found ourselves with a question or two you were easily accessible and gracious with your time. We most certainly respect that and want you to know how much we appreciate this quality. Every time we have guests in our home it is an honor to hear them point out just one more item that ‘they really like’ — as a home owner I am not sure if you ever get tired of that!
The open and fluid design of the kitchen and family room are so nice. With small children and a love to entertain this floor plan is perfect. The formal dining room has been a huge hit, the cove ceiling and two entry ways make this one of my favorite rooms in the house; being able to have quick access to the kitchen and enough privacy to host a formal gathering is obtainable because of this design — Thank you!
I also love having the main floor laundry room — this doubles as a perfect changing area for a baby. Upstairs we enjoy the “bonus room” as our family computer room, this is an open area that splits the bedrooms and makes for a nice extra family room in our world.
Thanks again for making our home so special. We are looking forward to working with you in the future.”
“I did extensive remodeling on two homes. The first I tried to do myself by individually hiring the many trades involved. It took forever, cost way more than I had predicted, and I was never happy how it turned out.
For the second, I hired CJ Development to orchestrate the project. I couldn’t believe how quickly and smoothly everything went.
In the end, through his shrewd negotiating of costs with the trades, his thorough understanding of how projects such as mine should progress, and because everything was done right the first time, actually saved me money!
“I used CJ Development to remodel my home in 2002. I was very happy with the level of customer care. He was willing and available to meet with me any time to discuss and resolve any concerns that came up, and made absolutely sure everything was completed to my satisfaction. The work was completed in a timely manner, with minimal disruption to our day to day family life.”
“Chris, I wanted to thank you and your staff for making our basement remodel a reality. As you know we originally delt with contractors on a seperate basis, not going with a ‘General Contractor.’ I believed I could save money going direct. Not only could I not get contractors to show up, they always left a mess and the work performed was incorrect.
“After we hired you and your firm, we noticed a difference the first day. The contractors that you work with were always professional, showing up when scheduled, and taking the time after the completion of the work day to clean up. In additon your cost saving suggestions, not only helped us to stay on budget but improved our original design. Chris thank you again for everything.”
