Architect & Homeowner
I had the pleasure of working with Jon Walsh of J Walsh Construction Inc during the major renovation of my home in 2007 & 2008. I was also the Architect for the project which is my primary residence. The renovation project was essentially a teardown of an existing 1,100 square foot single story home and the rebuilding of a 2,600 square foot two story home with a rooftop deck. Jon was very accommodating and understanding of the process I wanted to follow for the construction of my home. He reviewed and understood the plans and made every effort to minimize my unnecessary involvement in construction-related issues. He was excellent at alerting me when decisions needed to be made concerning structural or aesthetic concerns with the project. He understands not only the foundation and structural rough framing of a project but also how finishes are applied and how they are affected by decisions made in those early stages. It was refreshing to know that Jon was at the project site thinking about tasks further down the road than the current week’s work. He was an honest, pleasant, and even-tempered person to work with which is rare in the custom home construction industry. It was easy to see the respect his employees had for him and his knowledge of construction, workflow and client maintenance. I have recommended Jon on several projects since my home was completed and will continue to do so.
