Client Comments

Carversville Creek House

 I have employed John Franklin over the last year and have had knowledge of his past business endeavors. I utilized John for a complete restoration of a very unique stone residence built in the early 1700’s. This building had been vacant for over 75 years and required a complete ground up overhaul including everything but the stone walls. It included all the site work, landscape, masonry and hardscapes. 

The original interior was salvaged and incorporated in to the overall design. He then added all the modern amenities that ultimately turned the “home” into a one of a kind estate. 

John executed this task with mastery and a skill set that is unparalleled. Hard working and tenacious, John was able to do the impossible by turning this stone building into a pre revolutionary masterpiece. He handled all aspects of planning, design trade oversight with a very hands on approach. Construction was completed on time and on budget. His attention to the very small details really shows in the overall impactful finished project. 

I would gladly use John again for another project and will make myself available for any questions at 561-281-9399.
