Client Reviews of Our Work
I normally do not review businesses…but this one is long overdue because my husband and I have been so busy enjoying our beautiful new home for the last 6 months. We found a lot in Anne Arundel County and called Timberlake to help us design and build our home on the property and what I thought would have been a daunting experience was the opposite. Our biggest concern was that the market was making buying an existing home almost impossible so we felt we needed to be open to the idea of building and we are so relieved and grateful that we did- especially with Timberlake! From the first meeting (virtually due to the pandemic) to our design meetings, to weekly updates, their professional recommendations, and the overall communication and quality of what we received with Timberlake, you just cannot beat it. Their team is unmatched – Dave, Danny, Jason, and Lucy (the Golden Retriever) and we always felt like they cared about our input and had it all under control week by week. We love our new home and feel like we hit the jackpot when it came to their straightforward approach to the process. If you are ever considering building, you have to use Timberlake!!
My wife and I hired Timberlake Design & Build to build a home for us in June 2018. We actually hired them the day after we fired our first builder. We built a 4,600 square foot waterfront home on the Chesapeake Bay (subject to all the critical area laws and regulations). The most difficult part of our build was the land we had picked. It was a wetland which couldn’t even support the weight of a car without it sinking. Timberlake DB worked directly with our engineers and their own soil expert in an extremely detailed manner to determine the most effective and cost efficient way to build on this lot. They addressed the soil bearing capacity issues as well the high water table in a way that now you wouldn’t even know we built on a wetland. Our first builder told us we couldn’t even build on this lot and Timberlake took over worked with us every step of the way and delivered a home that exceeded our expectations in every way.
Aside from the site work and the difficulty building on this lot Dave and the design team went above and beyond to accommodate some changes we wanted to their standard model. The pricing was known upfront and was fair for everything we changed. We added windows, moved doors and walls where we wanted and it all turned out exactly as planned. Even some of the smallest changes were available such as installing a high rise garage doors to make room for a automotive lift in the future.
During construction again the Timberlake team delivered. During construction I was stopping by the house often and checking on progress. Once construction started it moved along very quickly and I was kept in the loop on any delays. There were no delays through the entire project as a result of Timberlake, they scheduled and worked as promised. I pointed out issues as we went through the construction process with minor things that arose and the team worked to fix them as they occurred so that during our final walk-through only minor touch ups were needed.
The last thing that has stood out to my wife and I is the support we have gotten from the team after the completion of our house. Andy and Dave did a fantastic job explaining all of our homes systems to us, the warranties we have and who to reach out to with any issues. We have had no issues aside from minor adjustments needed as the house settles. We reached out recently on two doors which were now not closing properly due to settlement and someone was out to fix the doors within 2 business days.
Great job Timberlake, Dave and Andy we will be recommending you to anyone we know looking into building a home and we appreciate all of your hard work!
Very happy with Dave & the entire team at Timberlake Design Build. They built our home in record time to a somewhat demanding list of requirements. Dave & crew went above and beyond to deliver.
We worked with Dave through virtually every aspect of the home planning, building and settling. Timberlake was great throughout! While they don’t have a lot of building in Montgomery County Maryland, Dave and team was diligent, professional and informative throughout. We feel grateful to have found the Timberlake Design team and are thrilled with our home.
