John Zerrer did a great job building my house. I interviewed a number of builders and it was clear John Zerrer has a good knowledge of techniques and materials. Most of them do. What separated him from the others was his craftsmanship, and his sense of proportion and balance. This was important to me as I was involved in the design and needed someone who understood my intentions. His whole crew was tuned-in to the project, and cared about doing it right. Without question, Zerrer was the right choice. During construction Zerrer always looked out for our interests. My wife and I could trust that he would do what was needed to satisfy our wishes and always tell us the truth. We had some unusual and unexpected complications (there always are) and they were taken care of competently and quickly. He understood what mattered to us. The house ended winning the American Institute of Architecture award. Considering all the design decisions that have to be made during construction, the contribution of Zerrer and his crew was crucial. But more important than that, the house is well built and gorgeous. Inevitably, a guest will admire the craftsmanship and design and say, “they don’t build them like that anymore.” Actually, John Zerrer does.
