The Martin Home

John and Susan brought the plans for their dream house to us. Upon review we found several errors in the structural design of the home. Fortunately, we were able to correct the mistakes and actually improve the design by making the kitchen a little larger and opening up the great room vaulted ceiling. The result is a home with an airy comfortable feel to it…Just what the Martin’s wanted.

We had never considered building a home. It seemed overwhelming to us – so many decisions to make!  But when we purchased a lot at Smith Mountain Lake,  we knew that we were going to need a builder who understood that we were novices and who was willing to be patient and flexible.  We found that builder in Eddie Fort.  When interviewing builders, he was the first to get back to us with ideas and estimates. It was this ability to communicate that won us over immediately.  Throughout our build, Eddie contacted us on the phone or through email, even sending us pictures of the progress.  When there were problems with the plans, Eddie made sure they were corrected.  His subs were pleasant and helpful.  Everyone contributed ideas to tweak the plans so that it fit our needs and our dreams.

Our home was finished on time and Eddie continues to be available as both a resource and a friend.  Each time we walk into our lake home, we are amazed that this beautiful place is ours!  We would absolutely recommend Eddie and PD&M to build your next home.
