“We sincerely appreciate Barber Construction’s high level of integrity, and we believe we received excellent value for our investment.”




“The cottage was stunning and the boathouse the same.  Thank you for the beautiful work.  It just blew me  away!  By the way, my friends were blown away as well.  We had a great time finding light switches, moving furniture, setting things up, and christening the kitchen. What a kitchen!  Best shower I’ve ever taken at the cottage.”

“Denise and I are really thrilled with our new Higgins Lake home.  Having known you for years, I knew your reputation of talent and integrity.  Still, it takes a leap of faith to build a house by remote control from 200 miles away.  We’re glad we did it, we’re very pleased with the results, and it was hassle free.  The job was smooth, and every request for a change, modification, or implementation of a new idea was met with a “can do” attitude and successful follow-through.”


Bill & Denise



“It has been a pleasure to have Barber Construction do our remodeling.  You have an excellent reputation in the area, and we know why.  Throughout our entire building project, changes and all, you conducted yourself always in a professional manner – knowledgeable, concerned on our behalf, added with a sense of humor!”


Wayne & Carol



“In addition to the quality, what impressed us were the creative ideas that Tom Barber suggested for our project.  Before each state of construction/renovation, we would meet with Tom and his crew chief and/or contractor to review the progress and review what was to be done and our options.  Barber Construction works with the customer to ensure that the customer gets exactly what he/she wants.”

“I have a cottage at Higgins Lake Michigan and I hired Tom Barber of Barber Construction to do some extensive remodeling on the cottage that also became somewhat of a summer home now that I have retired.  I can only give praise and my highest recommendation to Barber Construction and anyone who works with Tom Barber will find that he is a very genuine person, he tries to do the very best he can.  He came recommended to me; I of course interviewed him and talked to him to see if he understood what we wanted.  He went out of his way many times to help us.  In one case, we had real knotty pine paneling and we had to have a special blade made so that it could be routed to match where we added new paneling.  They did a tremendous job, never took a short cut, and always did the very best.  If there was ever a question on anything, which I don’t recall there was anything of any significance, he was always ready to listen, to understand and go from there.  If you need a recommendation, this is a person and business that you can trust, and Tom and Wilma together run an excellent shop.  I hope that this is helpful to you!

“It’s hard to know where to begin to be able to adequately express the overall positive experience of working with them.  First were our initial meetings.  Since Tom appreciates the challenge involved with a long distance project, since we live in Indiana, Tom arranged quickly for the opportunity for me to meet with a designer and I left that meeting confident that my vision was now a shared vision and we moved forward from there.  I always felt that I was a valued contributor to the design stage.  I grew quickly to trust what Tom presented and never felt that my ideas were disregarded. Most of our meetings were phone meetings and despite the challenge of a long-distance build, because I had this complete trust in Tom’s judgment, I was never disappointed.  By the end of the project, our expectations were exceeded.  Tom and his team have helped to make our dream a reality. And not only do we now have a new home that we just absolutely love on Higgins Lake, we also have new friends, the Barber’s that I wouldn’t hesitate to call upon again for another project or to recommend to someone for their building project.”





“We own a 30 year old chalet near Higgins Lake and want to have a roof porch put over our entire deck of our chalet.  We talked to numerous people in two subdivisions that have used Barber Construction in the past and they were all completely satisfied with their work.  Five years ago Barber Construction installed a new roof/porch enclosure over our deck and last year we had them completely vinyl sided our house and shed.  We are 200% satisfied with their workmanship, the product they used and all their workmen.  They did this job as if the building was their home.  We suggest you use Barber Construction for any of your construction needs.  And, probably the thing that impressed me most was that we received a follow up from them one year later and in the second year, a second letter asking for any defects that came up and they were going to stick to their two year warranty program.  Not too many people do that anymore.”
