Building a home in any environment can be stressful, but Adobe Construction Company made the process pain free. They are very talented and creative, and along with that their construction knowledge is far superior to any of the other builders I interviewed in Costa Rica.
They know the importance of building a strong house, and will not compromise the integrity of the construction to save money.
I highly recommend Adobe Construction Company and am confident that they will always be there when questions about the house arise in the future.
I strongly recommend Adobe Construction Company for your project. After agreeing on the design and costs, construction began on time and we were sent bi-weekly e-mail photographs on progress. Payments were phased and each phase was completed one time.
Our experience with Adobe Construction Company was excellent, Mike restored my faith in contractors. I have a beautiful house in Altos del Cacique, Playas del Coco Guanacaste, Costa Rica.
They are truly professional and trustworthy in every way. Builders like this are very hard to find in Costa Rica. We highly recommend Adobe Construction Company to anyone that is interested in a custom built house in Costa Rica. They have the skills and expertise to do the job from the first shovel full of dirt to the final drinks in the fridge.
We finished our house in Playa Hermosa in December of 2009. Villa Paradiso del Mar. We contracted Adobe Construction Company for our project and we could not be happier with the results.
Adobe Construction Company did everything on time and on budget. I must say that I have never work with anybody that is more professional.
When we told our friends we were building a house in Costa Rica while living in New York they all said we were crazy. Adobe proved them wrong. From the moment Mike agreed to take over our project, we felt like we were in good hands. He allowed us to actually enjoy the process, mailing us pictures as they progressed, modifying the details as we went along and never once compromising on the quality.
After seeing what some of our friends and neighbors went through either building or trying to build using other contractors, I don’t think I would have been able to complete our house without Adobe Construction Company. If we were ever to take on another, whether its a home or condo project, it is without hesitation we would call Mike to handle the job. They were right on budget. Today we have a spectacular home in Costa Rica.
Recently, my wife and I completed the construction of a brand new, 3,000 square foot plus home in the Guanacaste area of Costa Rica. The house also had an outside terrace and infinity pool of another 1,500 square feet that was also part of the construction. The Contractor and builder of the house was Mr. Mike Brussock of Adobe Construction Company. I cannot begin to adequately describe how pleased we were not only with Mr. Brussock’s attitude, communication skills, and all around professionalism, not only of him, but his entire team of Architects, Planners, Engineers, and Work Crew.
The house we had built was an open floor plan, modern home which took full advantage of the incredible view we have of the ocean and surrounding hills. We have built in the United States other homes either from the ground up and/or modifying existing homes so we have had many experiences with other builder’s. I can without a doubt say that working with Mike and his team was by far the easiest and most pleasurable experience in home construction that we have ever experienced. Many people asked how we could build something of this magnitude while living so far from the project (our permanent residence is in the Los Angeles area) I had concerns and many fears myself at the beginning, but this was the easiest project due to Mike and his team.
The quality of workmanship was outstanding. Mike was very responsive to our numerous changes and never did we have any conflicts. His work was timely (even though we may have slowed things down) and he always remained positive, supportive, and fully explained everything he did that we had questions on. The issue of having a budget and our desire to stay close to that budget was never a problem. Any change orders would be presented and discussed in regards to the costs associated with budget line items. I never felt Mike tried to “pad” any numbers, and he always was patient with our sending funds as milestones were completed.
I can honestly say when my wife and I walked in to see the completed project we were blown away! It was even better than we had hoped for or imagined when we first started the project. The quality was great, the workers were responsive, and the timeliness and professionalism was outstanding.
We plan to live in the house for 3 – 4 months at a time for a few years and then hopefully make it more of or permanent residence. I look forward on each trip to staying there.
I would highly recommend Mike Brussock and Adobe Construction Company if you are considering building in Costa Rica and want a high quality, easy construction process, with a professional and trustworthy builder. They were the best!
