Congratulations all around on a job well done!

SCDAC completed this Frank Lloyd Inspired home for Brian and Diane C., in Indian Hills, Colorado, August, 2016

Here is a referral paragraph from Brian on November 21st 2016:

Steve is a true professional, who cared as much about us getting the “house of our dreams” as we did. After years of touring Wright’s homes around the country, we decided to DO IT! We hired a Chicago-based architect who specialized in Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired designs, and who’s work we loved. While we also loved his initial design, the home was literally TWICE as big as we had asked for, or could afford! Frustrated, we were referred to Steve, who sat down with us, listened to our “vision,” and together, we modified the architect’s CAD designs to something that worked, and was financially possible. We even added some unique features to enhance the design in the process. All along, he provided ideas and pointed out pros and cons of different design, construction, and finish options. Even telling us when he thought we were making a mistake. All while keeping a close eye on the budget! I think the three of us worked together very well, to bring a complicated design from the drawing board to the landscape. Our home literally “has a soul,” because of his attention to detail. We consider Steve not only a great builder, but a true friend. Feel free to reach out to him for our contact info. if you’d like to discuss hiring him, the design / build process, or to see our home.

October, 2008 As a recent customer of Far Star, Inc., it is with great pleasure that we write this letter of reference. The scope of our project entailed engineered drawings, a new addition to our 35-year-old log home, building a garage and completely re-sculpting a steep hillside for a driveway. We were extremely satisfied in our entire experience with Far Star, Inc. owner Steve Crook, and his crew of specialists. Steve was professional in every aspect and detail of our business relationship. He personally took care of procuring the necessary permits and inspections; our contract and drawings were detailed and specific, leaving no questions throughout the project’s time frame; Steve was good to his word, cognizant of every budgetary detail, and kept a designer’s eye on the process in every way. Steve’s groups of specialists included roofers, framers, log builders, concrete crews, stone masons, plumbers, painters, and installers of tile, hardwood, carpet and vinyl. Every person involved was courteous and professional and often went out of their way to adjust to special circumstances. We are so pleased with how beautiful and renewed our log home became! We are certain that when you choose Far Star, Inc. for your building and construction needs, you can rest assured that your project is in the best of professional hands.

Sincerely,
Dennis Schmuker and Rita Garren
