“You know the proverbial horror stories — how hard it is to work with those unreliable contractors/builders, so many decisions to make when designing a home, divorce rates, etc. Now that our custom home is complete and we’re happily residing within, I cannot think of any horrifying, stressful or unpleasant memories associated with the building of the house itself. Melody and Russ Hurd were incredibly easy to work with (“user-friendly” I like to say) and made the custom home-building experience one of the best phases in our married lives. I can say with complete honesty, that if we move in the future, there is no other builder we will use … only Hurd Builders.
The unique feature about the company, Hurd Builders, is that it’s a husband and wife team. Both partners serve an indispensable role in the building process and the two personalities and talents meld together for the ideal builder-partnership. Melody Hurd has excellent organizational skills and leads the homeowner through the selection process with finesse and efficiency. Her method of helping us pick out the endless list of things: appliances, faucets, light fixtures, flooring, etc., was done in a structured way so that we ended up with our selections chosen weeks and sometimes months before the product needed to be installed. There was no last-minute rushing and stressing over selections. Complementing Melody’s attributes are Russ Hurd’s decades of building experience, excellent people skills, and high energy & enthusiasm for his profession. The two make an amazing team.
We had the unique situation that we built our home one block from our previous home and we were able to stop in almost daily and watch the process unfold from beginning to end. We were able to meet every person involved along the way and watch him/her working. The trades people, such as the custom-shelves builder, flooring people, painters, plumbers, framers, etc. were stellar in their skills and professionalism.
We recommend Hurd Builders if you wish for a smooth, orderly, satisfying home-building experience and ultimately if you desire a quality home with professional builders assisting you every step of the way. It was a joy watching our beautiful home emerge and a joy to have had the privilege to work with Russ and Melody, who we are proud to say have become our dear friends.”
