We went down the lane, by the body of the man in black, sodden now from the overnight hail, and broke into the woods at the foot of the hill.
“It was my pleasure to work with Tony Buff and Jeff Rettig. Tony’s insistence on quality and attention to detail, Jeff’s organizational abilities along with his intuition for style have produced my impeccable villa. When I bought my villa, the external walls were up, and the internal walls were framed out, all I had was a vision of what might become my home.
Tony walked me through the empty space and talked to me about the location of outlets, pocket doors and the finishing touches he envisioned for the space. Jeff lead me through the process of selecting flooring, tiles, counter tops, door knobs, faucets, and more. They guided me through the upgrades I was seeking for additional hardwood floors, tankless hot water heater and other energy efficiencies.
When I selected a faucet on my own, they thought it was overpriced so they suggested a similar model that was much more reasonable (which I really like). Jeff kept working with me until we found the perfect backsplash tile for my kitchen and he understood instantly my desire for the lack of stain color on the hardwood floors (which are beautiful). It felt like a partnership as they brought the space into the home of my dreams.
Their integrity, patience and senses of humor made it a delight to work with them to build my villa. I have a quality home that I truly love. I highly recommend Tony Buff Custom Homes.”
“We love our custom home! We didn’t understand much about the building process when we considered new construction. After meeting with Tony and Jeff we were convinced that not only did we want to build but that they were the only ones we wanted to build with. They were there every step of the way including explaining timelines, offering suggestions to help improve our floorplan and providing various options for finishes. The subcontractors they chose were top quality which makes a huge difference in the finished product. Throughout the process they kept the lines of communication open with prompt responses to our many questions. We had a few special requests including a pet door, a barn door and our flooring and they were able to accommodate us. Both Jeff and Tony provided information about upgrades available, photos of their previous work and allowed us to tour current homes they were building all of which helped us make good decisions for our home. We were able to stay on budget AND build the dream home we wanted. The end result was exactly how we pictured it. We highly recommend Tony Buff construction.”
“I loved working with Jeff and Tony! They are truly “custom” and worked with many different ideas we had. They always gave us plenty of time for the next decision, and they made our experience a blast! I was actually sad when it was all over and miss talking shop with both of them!”
How the adventure ended will be seen anon. Aouda was anxious, though she said nothing. As for Passepartout, he thought Mr. Fogg’s manoeuvre simply glorious.
During the first days, they went along smoothly enough. The sea was not very unpropitious, the wind seemed stationary in the north-east, the sails were hoisted.
