A recommendation from two physicians in South Carolina

We were lucky enough to discover Randy Blake in the early 1990’s after having been turned away by several contractors who didn’t want to mess with a difficult and challenging job. Our house in Valle Crucis was built sometime in the 1800’s, probably initially as a barn, and then converted to a frame farmhouse at least a hundred years ago. When we bought the property, the back half had to be torn off because a stream was running under the kitchen. Working off of a sketch made by an architect friend of ours, Ken Huggins, AIA., Randy and his crew turned what was an unlivable old shell of a home into a energy efficient, beautiful gem of a house. We particularly love the wormy old chestnut wood throughout that he salvaged from the house original roof.

It was a laborious job, and we were far away in South Carolina. Randy Blake not only does beautiful work, but he is completely trustworthy and we were able to accomplish with great peace of mind and confidence what could have been a Old House money pit nightmare. Randy takes pride in what he does and will make sure it is right, and at a good price.
