Having a home built and don't want to pay extra $ for an extra few square feet of concrete for a "patio?"

Call QDC to build a deck:

He followed the layout of the previous design, per the client's request.
The wall is a bit higher with the 12" tile.
The glass shower surround will be installed this week

Default Independent Contractor for Hire

John does really nice work and is good to work with. He did a fire door from my garage to family room. The rough opening was off, so he had to take a lot more time fine tuning the door to make sure it closed properly and had an airtight seal.

This reminds me that I need to text him back about doing some crown molding and tile backsplash.

He sounds like a good guy to work with.

I emailed him about a new deck and replacing/relocating a sliding door.

John just finished up at my place last week, he took a bathroom from the studs, to being prepped and tiled (shower stall and floor), I'll get some pics up.

Super reasonably priced, was happy to answer my million questions, and has been generally very easy to get ahold of (which is normally rare for contractors)

All my pics are 'in progress' since I don't have light to take a finished one, but it came out amazing. Floor picture is being weird about uploading so I'll get that one up in a min.

My job was fairly small (less than a full week, and just John doing the work), had about a month wait, well worth it.

Shoot, I'll frame it for you so we can all leave John time to build out my deck this summer.
