"Hi Gary, As you can see we've been beyond pleased with the house and everything you've done for us. We'd be happy to recommend you to anyone. We had the pleasure of purchasing our first home from Gary of St John Craftsman. We were looking for a home built with quality materials and unique details. We were fortunate enough to find this and more with St John Craftsman from the high-end finishes to the intricate moldings and woodwork. Gary's eye for detail is unmatched. Gary takes great pride in his work and leaves no stone unturned. We hope to stay in this home for years to come, but would happily buy or build again with Gary."
