I live in an older, very unique home in downtown Auburn and was originally looking to just renovate the kitchen. After a few failed attempts to renovate, I was given Michael’s information. He and Cody were literally my saving grace on this project when I was ready to throw in the towel. What was first a dreaded renovation became one I truly enjoyed. I enjoyed it so much that we ended up gutting and renovating almost the entire downstairs. They were able to keep my budget and still give me the flexibility to make some last minute changes and decisions. Everyone that works with Michael is honest and professional. Since we were still living there during the renovation, we spent so much time with the crew that they became like our honorary family. I know that they usually do new builds but am so blessed they were able to take on my project. They made my vision a reality and I couldn’t be happier. If I ever build or buy another house in the Auburn area, Michael will be my first call. He and his team are true talents!
``It has been my great pleasure to work with Michael on five projects over the last several years. I cannot imagine a better contractor, he is unfailing honest, maintains budgets in a very business-like manner, has very high standards of construction and craft and possesses a wonderful demeanor. I look forward to future projects together.``
``Working with Michael was a grand experience from start to finish. He told us what was going to be done and when. His sub-contractors were excellent. He always kept us involved for each phase of the project and made suggestions when problems with the original plans arose. Michael stayed within our original budget. He had his crew keep the work site uncluttered and always cleaned up prior to weekends.
We are pleased to recommend Michael Schumacher to anyone.``
``I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you again for the excellent job you did on our recently completed home construction project. You are a genuine craftsman and builder ....way more than just a normal contractor. The finished product that you provided us as well as the value that we received are both outstanding. Your planning, attention to detail and management of subcontractors were all top notch. The subs universally commented to me how much they enjoyed working for you because, like you, they took great pride in the finished product and you were on-site multiple times each day (or more) to assist them. Seldom have I seen such a congenial group of dedicated craftsmen. We will be enjoying the beautiful finishing touches and sturdy construction for many years. I especially appreciated your detailed and transparent cost tracking procedures. You truly spent our construction budget as if it were your own and you went that extra mile to keep Shawna and I abreast (well ahead of time) of the sequence of decisions that we would need to be making.
As you know, we hired one of the best and most experienced architects in the Auburn area to help us with our plans. He confided in me many times during the construction phase how much you impressed him with your intimate knowledge of construction details and your uncanny ability to achieve that special touch and look that he sought without having to spend a fortune. He regards you as one of the best, if not the best, builders in Auburn. Because of your excellent organization, strong work habits, personal integrity and pleasant personality you made our project a very enjoyable experience. Indeed, a dream come true.....on time and on budget.``
