"My Experience with Dave Rickett Construction was the best custom home building experience I have ever had. When looking for a builder it was paramount to me to find a person whom I could trust since the last experience I had was beyond terrible. Dave is honest, reliable, hard working and his attention to detail is superb. His customer service is unbelievable! I was always able to get in contact with him and he responded to my calls and requests almost immediately. I have a beautiful custom garage that I love and its appraised value right after finishing construction was significantly higher than its cost. "

"Dave Rickett spent a great deal of time educating me about building and the building process , all of which was done before he was even hired. Dave gave me a recommendation for an architect that I couldn't have been happier with and then they worked with me during the design process educating me about different building options and pricing. It was very important to me to maximize value and minimize price."


"Building Up North can be challenging some times and Dave was awesome at being able to navigate the project through the process. No matter how much planning and preparation is made prior to construction issues will arise during construction and Dave dealt with them efficiently and effectively. There were a couple of times that I was afraid that I had made some terrible selections (i.e. color, size, style, etc.) and Dave quickly alleviated my worries and we were able to work it through so that my end product matched my vision."

"I highly recommend Dave Rickett to anyone desiring to build a custom home in Northern Michigan. If you have any further questions about this builder I am available to discuss them with you, and do not hesitate to contact the builder for my phone or email.

"Dave is skilled, honest and reliable. He only hires guys that meet his standards. I would not think of going to anyone else  for my construction projects!"

John K.

"Dave contacted me on the phone very quickly after my request. I laid out the details of the job, and he was quite responsive and knowledgeable. A couple days later, he called back with a quote that was within our budget. After mulling over the other bids, Dave just seemed to be the best fit. We set a date, and the work was completed within 15 days of my original  request.  This  wasn't  a huge job, but it was very important to my wife and I that it be done correctly. Dave and his partner showed up on time, and really delivered. Excellent workmanship, great attitude, and the ability to


handle all the little  surprises make this decision a no- brainer.  He finished on time,  despite mother nature and some supply issues. Cleaned up the mess, and left us with a garage we can be proud of. Anyone in central/northern Michigan should check out this company. It's small, but the professionalism is way above average. Real deal, folks."

that had been storm damaged. He did that one day after he quoted his price. It also looks great."
