Basement Finishing Project

Basement finishing ContractorIf you want to ensure that you hire the correct contract, Please read a letter that Country Creek Builders received from a homeowner in Cottage Grove.  We had just finished her basement, and she was kind enough to let us know how happy she was with my company.  This review was placed on Angie’s List.


On the surface, this project was finishing a basement.  To us, though, it was much more than that.  My sister and I wanted to combine households – which meant that this basement project was to be my home – a complete apartment with a garden view.  And of course, we had a budget.

Dan was the only contractor we talked to who took our budget seriously.  He provided a line item cost analysis so that we could see where to trim or to enhance.  He listened, made adjustments, and helped us to see the final project before he even started.  He provided a calendar detailing when work would be completed and was available by email or phone whenever we had questions.

The finished apartment is everything we had hoped for and more.  Patty found a way to include a laundry room, where before we thought the washer/dryer would be tucked into the furnace room.  Dave handcrafted a cat door into the furnace room that is perfect for the feline friends to enter and exit for feeding and litter.  Steve was tireless and always upbeat.  Dan created an architectural element in the main living area and bathroom to disguise heating ducts.  And Brittany’s tile work is beautiful.

The crew and subcontractors were professional, personable, and approachable.  They made every effort to control the chaos that is a normal part of construction and Dan supervised the progress closely.  We would not hesitate to recommend Country Creek Builders to anyone looking for a remodel or new construction.  We couldn’t  be happier with how it all turned out!
