I just moved to the area and would like to build a new home. Can anyone tell me anything about Jr. Fowler? Is he a good builder?

Your best bet would be Mike Smith. He is the BEST around!

If you are looking for a cabinet builder, SLY Woodworks out of Blossom comes highly recommended. The owners are Larry and Staci Young. They have pics of their work, tons of references and I think they might do work for Mike Smith that is listed above. They do free estimates and will take you to homes of clients to show you their work in person. I promise that you won't be disappointed.

I agree, Larry did our cabinets and I love them. He even gave me some little extras without asking for them. Very nice people!

Bobby Smallwood or Larry Slagle. They are both great contractors and stand behind what they build for you. You cannot go wrong with either of these two good men.

I like Randy Connot. He will do a good job at a fair price.

I like Randy Connot. He will do a good job at a fair price. I agree him or Darrell Berry and Ronnie Fendley. I would stay away from Jr Fowler When Darrell finds out Jr. is the one that caused the problems with TRCC That backstabbing little prick will not be able to walk!

I'd definately put Jerry Spangler at the top of any list when looking at building a new home.

He's not a bad person, he's just not a good painter. He did okay on the outside of the house, but not the inside. There are a lot of runs on doors, bad spots that were not sanded, nail holes that were not filled, and spots that were hard to get to that were not even painted. When he bid the job it included sanding, caulking, and filling nail holes. He came back for touch ups and when we started showing him everything we found he told us it was not his job. Hopefully he's improved since then and is doing a better job for other people. We all have to start somewhere.

When we asked about him at one of the local lumber yards, they did not have much to say. They had nice things to say about other builders we inquired about. I guess they were going by the old rule if you can't say something nice don't say anything! Hope this helps

You need to go up to Paris Lumber and talk to Steve Jackson. He will walk you through the entire process and give you all the recommendations you need. He is a good guy, and there is really nothing else to discuss on this thread. Case Closed.
