Building a house without tearing out your hair requires a real partnership between the owners, the builders, and the architects. Harrington Stanko Construction has made that easy every step of the way. It has been a pleasure working together.
Tim’s experience and commitment to quality and detail place Harrington Stanko Construction in the first tier of custom home builders in the Boulder area. Gail and I have enjoyed immensely our home in the mountains that Tim built for us fourteen years ago. And now, as we are transitioning to a smaller home closer to Boulder’s conveniences and after interviewing three other builders, we chose Harrington Builders again to build our new home.
Harrington Stanko recently completed construction of our mountain home. To say it is beautiful, even perfect, still doesn’t capture the depth of a very rewarding 18 month process. Their attention to detail, as well as their attention to the customer, is unsurpassed. Critical to the success of any contractor is the skill level and integrity of their subs. They need to feel that they are part of the team and they must enjoy their work in order to do good work. Every one of Harrington Stanko’s subs are people that had obviously been working with them for a long time, and the mutual trust was high. We got to know all of them, and there wasn’t one that we didn’t like and appreciate.
Married couples often refer to building a home as the ultimate test of their relationship. Harrington Stanko made this process so satisfying and fun, that we need to find something else to test our relationship!
The bottom line is that we have a spectacular home, and these guys will be friends for life.
We decided to work with Tim based on referrals from Tim’s prior clients. Our contemporary glass house, designed by the renowned New York firm, Thomas Phifer & Partners, required extraordinary attention to detail. In addition, the house’s steep site overlooking Boulder presented unique challenges for permitting, excavation and construction. Tim and his first-class team of sub-contractors have not disappointed. The quality of construction is exceptional and we’ve enjoyed working with Tim.
