The process from the beginning to end was very organized and efficient...totally painless.

Wonderful, enjoyable experience. And we absolutely adore our new home!
Very positive. Would recommend to others construction appears very sound. Very happy the way our house looks and the way appliances/hvac works
I have forty plus years of experience in the Engineering/Construction Industry and have self performed residential remolding contracts so I'm not an easy customer. My wife and I designed and built our last home and contracted Brennan to build our retirement home. Brennan agreed to build one their Carriage home floor plans for us on a single family lot which was a first for this floor plan. I was impressed with the quality of the materials included in Brennan's base price. My wife and I are discerning buyers and tend to purchase at the high end of the scale. There were many of the base materials that we found suitable for our taste and don't feel a need to upgrade. I found Brennan agreeable to the many design changes I requested to customize the floor plan to our needs some without an upcharge. For instance I moved a bathroom from one end of the loft to the other at no cost. I wish Brennan was a little more progressive in their building practices such as using open web floor trusses instead of solid dimensional lumber for the floor system which makes later plumbing and electrical changes/additions easier. Few builders in our area frame floors with dimensional lumber. The design center was a huge help to my wife during the selection process. I'm the kind of person that can see things on paper not so my wife. Being able to see touch and feel the selections and place them side by side for total coordination was important for her. Not sure many local builders have this type of design center. We opted out of the bathroom mirrors included in the base price and contacted them separately. Brennan was offering store bought Home Depot type mirrors that were totally inappropriate for the home we built. This actually was the only selection disappoint we experienced. While we paid for labor and material for four store bought mirrors in the base price we were not offered a credit thou requested. Again a disappointment. Wish there was a drawing review between Brennan's Project Manager and myself prior to framing. There were a dozen or so construction errors I discovered during the pre-drywall walk thru that would have been covered during the review and not likely made in the framing. Every error was due to not following the drawings. I blame this on the PM who was new to Brennan and I'm told no longer an employee. I'm fairly confident the PM who took over our project toward the end would have done a better job. Luckily I caught the errors when they were still inexpensive to correct. Brennan limits the Owners on site participation in the building process to three walk-throughs, pre-drywall, cabinets installed and post build. That's too few for a half million dollar or more investment. The finished product presented us far exceeded my expectations. I expected to walk around placing green painters tape on wall imperfections and bad molding miter joints. Not a one. My wife and I are very pleased with our new Brennan Home and look forward to many happy retirement years living there. Believe me, if Brennan can please a customer with my knowledge base and attention to detail I can assure you they are not your ordinary builder.
The Brennan team has followed up timely with all issues after closing. Very courteous team.
It was very pleasant. Trustworthy.
I would definitely add more insulation between the units! I am disheartened by the amount of noise I can hear when I was told that I wouldn't hear anything.
I have said enough.
