After considering an extensive remodel of our home for many years, in 2022 we decided to start looking for a contractor.  We were familiar with home remodeling projects.  We completed 2-bathroom remodels, a kitchen remodel, and a basement remodel in another home we owned. We met Eric of Magnuson Build and Design in August 2022 after attending The Parade of Homes.  We knew right away from the quality of the construction that we wanted Eric and his crew to do the extensive remodel of our home.

Eric and his staff worked closely with us.  They helped us keep within our budget, and throughout the project they were highly communicative.  Eric’s office staff, Lauren and Stephanie, were amazing to work with and were quick to respond to our questions.  We always knew where we stood with the project budget and when the next phase of the project was going to start. Eric’s sub-contractors were friendly, excellent to work with, and did great workmanship.  Any small issue we found during our walk-throughs was rectified immediately.

We would recommend Magnuson Build and Design to our friends and family, and more importantly if another project presented itself, Magnuson Build and Design would be our first call.
