“Why We Chose Stillwater Dwellings”

Below is a letter recently received from Stillwater clients building their “forever” home this spring.

Dear Stillwater Team:

We were so excited when the time came to begin thinking about building a home for our blended family.

Nick has been a builder and fine craftsman for upwards of 40 years. His father was a builder, his grandfather too. When we began to plan our new home, the third home Nick will build for his family, we knew we needed to find a company that shared Nick’s sense of place and our desire for a clean and light-filled home. Nick believes strongly in selecting the best material, and never taking shortcuts that almost always compromise quality and longevity.

I found Stillwater Dwellings on the Internet and couldn’t wait to show Nick. I knew right away they would be a match and, upon seeing their designs, he was as excited as I to learn more about the company. Honestly, even at that point, we felt we had found a kindred spirit in terms of design, vision, and attention. Within days, we were in Stillwater’s offices. We were absolutely delighted.

Nick has worked with many fine architects over the years, and we knew what we were looking for in terms of design. We wanted long clean lines and a minimalist design with high ceilings and as much natural light as we could bring in. Stillwater created this for us, beautifully.

We have been working with Stillwater for approximately one year and remain as thrilled today as we were after our first meeting. Kaveh, Matthew and Jana are exceptional listeners and implementers, and continue to provide us with valuable feedback and ideas. Most importantly, they too believe in thoughtful design that is going to last.

We are building this house as our forever home, to someday leave to our children and their children.  We couldn’t be happier with our decision to use Stillwater Dwellings. The plans are complete, permitting is underway and we look forward to a spring groundbreaking.

Warm Regards,
Heather and Nicholas Paradis
