The house is exactly as we first designed it. We are very appreciative of the fine quality of both wood and craftsmanship that went into the materials delivered.
Our experience working with Normerica … was wonderful and the coordination with our builders was seamless. It couldn’t have worked out better.
The tech rep from Normerica quickly got our crew organized and we had the structure up in three days as planned. The entire experience has been everything I envisioned and, of course the cottage itself is stunning.
Normerica is the most professional, personal and accommodating company I have worked with. Their attention to detail at every level was by far a “10” on any scale.
We had a great experience with the designers and are thrilled with our spectacular house on the water.
The Normerica product was exactly as ordered, constructed quickly and great value for money.
Building from a distance was a daunting process but with Normerica’s unstinting advice guidance and patience it was a privilege to have them build our cottage.
We love our home on Lake Huron and so does everyone who sees it. I have built thousands of units over 30+ years in the housing business and as an “insider”, I was very impressed with the Normerica product and process.
