“Working with Pete Crandall on the construction of our house was definitely the right thing
to do. Our house is a glass and aluminum house — a very different type of project. His experience with a wide range of building materials and processes, as well as the familiarities with the county and town of Three Rivers, gave us complete confidence. Not only is he a great craftsman and an experienced professional, he is a really great person, and we thoroughly enjoyed getting to know him through the process of building our house. We will definitely look to him in the future for any and all building needs that come up.” Julie Burleigh
