“We had built or remodeled several homes previously and, while they had all been good experiences, working with Linwood Doble on our dream house at Sugarloaf was at a much higher level of both professionalism and fun. When we were looking for a builder, I distinctly remember Linwood telling us that he ended up being good friends with most of his customers and that has certainly turned out to be the case with us. I doubt many builders can say that.”

“Sugarloaf can be an extremely harsh environment and Linwood has the experience and knows all the tricks to make a home stand up to that kind of weather. The house is five years old now, but it still feels brand new even after surviving raging blizzards, frigid cold, and many a wind driven rainstorm. The quality of his workmanship was just outstanding and he constantly made creative suggestions to our architect or to us that ended up improving the finished result. His crew are real craftsman and take great pride in their work. It didn’t hurt that, with his strong reputation in the area, Linwood also seemed to have access to all the best subs.”

“I don’t think the process could have gone much more smoothly. Linwood was extremely organized, maintained a solid schedule, adjusted as necessary, and finished the house on time. During the project, we both came to look forward to our weekly scheduled telephone calls to touch base on the status of our project. He is also a stickler about having a neat, organized worksite, something we appreciated on our visits to the job site. His pricing was competitive, he offered a number of suggestions that saved us money, and we never felt “nickled and dimed” over any minor changes that needed to be made.”

“In short, we couldn’t be happier with our Linwood Doble built house. I have a reputation for being frugal and generally believe in getting competitive bids for a major project, so probably the best testament to Linwood is that if I were to build another home, I wouldn’t even bother talking to anyone else. I’d go straight back to Linwood.”

“Linwood has designed and built two homes for me and my family in Rome.  The first in 2001 was a log supported lake-side Adirondack inspired 3 bedroom, 3 bath two story radiant heated home.  This home was designed to expose all of the log beams both inside and out. With classic Stickley styling, the house became a showplace of this unique design.”

“I was so pleased with Linwood’s attention to quality, materials selected and supervision that in 2006 I returned to his firm to build a second larger new house.  This time he built a classic white Maine farmhouse attached to a large red barn. Five bedrooms, 4 baths including a building for a master suite with a marble bathroom. Four years later we find that everything is still perfect as to quality, design and most important our enjoyment.  To this day Linwood still drops by to see if there is anything that he can do for us.  There is!  Next year we are going to add a conservatory.”

“When we wanted to rebuild we were 120 miles away from our building site, concerned about finding a down-to-earth, honest contractor that could lead us through the process. Linwood came highly recommended and we weren’t disappointed. He was easy to communicate with and always accessible throughout the entire building process. He valued our ideas, our time and our budget and happily worked to solve any issues encountered with a reasonable solution, one that made sense both structurally and financially. His attention to detail in the initial design and planning, commitment to quality construction, relationships with subcontractors plus his own talented crew made the entire experience a positive and memorable one for us. The house was completed on time, on budget and is everything we asked for and more.”

“We recommend Linwood whole heartily and if we were to build again Linwood would be the one we would call for the job.”
