The house has
been featured in the Times Colonist and in a Japanese Architectural
Magazine. We are completely
satisfied in all respects with the services provided and
job done by Don,
and we enthusiastically recommend without reservation
Good Manors Construction and Don.
Don designed our house in a west coast tudor style
around the existing trees with a basement garage to take
full advantage of the lot. The design is practical and
yet spectacular, with beamed octagonal dining room, old
fashioned living room with piano windows and veranda, beamed
and open from the second floor kitchen, and upstairs library
with covered deck. Don with the help of his onsite assistant,
Mark Whitney - who became our son in law, have built a warm
and attractive house with many unique architectural features.
During the design and construction of our house, Don
was fully committed to giving us the house of our dreams.
He was more than fair in his dealings with us - and we enjoyed
greatly the experience of working with him on the house.
The house is well built, but equally importantly, the house
has a old fashion style and warm character that only Don
McCarthy can provide. Simply put, we could not be
more pleased with our house and the experience of working
with Don. In our view Don has a special talent for designing
traditional homes and is highly qualified to build a
quality house. Perhaps most importantly, Don is fair, trustworthy
and honest in his dealings with people, and Don has earned
our full respect.
