What our Clients Say!

We would recommend Jim and Matthews Construction to anyone contemplating building a new home. We are thrilled with our new home. Jim's attention to detail and meticulous craftsmanship is evident throughout our home. He was able to integrate our thoughts into a well-built, well-thought-out, high quality home with log detail. Perfect for our retirement plans (hopefully in the not too distant future!!).Jim earned our full trust by being very upfront as to cost and timing. He presented all alternatives all along the building process, introduced us to other high quality service providers in the area and looked after our interests when negotiating price. Building, like we did, from long distance can certainly be trying, but we were in constant communication and were rewarded with a superior building experience. We feel very fortunate to have been introduced to Jim and his work. We continue to use his company for other projects and count him as a reliable, honest and good friend!! - Mike & Jacque Harrington

What our Clients Say!

Not only was the experience of building our lake house quick, efficient, and with very few glitches, but most enjoyable. We highly recommend Matthews Construction to anyone who wants a quality house and workers who take pride in what they do. Oh, and we did this from 2000 miles away! - Bryce & Audrey Adolph

What our Clients Say!

We are totally in love with the home Matthews Construction built for us three years ago. The experience was a good one and fun from beginning to end. We were very pleased that Jim Matthews himself was on the sight 98% of the time, overseeing, checking, discussing, and, most importantly, solving problems that would, and always do, arise. Jim listened and followed through. He was able to get quality craftsmen from many sectors of construction. Even though we are three years plus in the home, Jim has remained concerned, dependable and a friend. - Deborah Kurd

What our Clients Say!

The thing we learned from having our house built by Matthews was that they work everyday, including the boss. The quality is first class along with all of their people. They leave no stone unturned until the job is complete. Their service after the job is complete is immediate. We would not have as happy using anyone else. - John & Nancy Banks

What our Clients Say!

We have had the pleasure of working with Jim Matthews and Matthews Construction on three significant projects over the past 15 years and each has been a very positive experience. I am in the commercial real estate development business, and have the opportunity to often interact with general contractors of all sizes and capabilities. Our projects with Jim have been far above and beyond anything in my experience base. He is a consummate professional, and experienced and knowledgeable in his craft. He provided value-added input into the design-build process, bringing a practical, yet ‘can-do’ element to the process. We achieved much better results from both an end product and overall cost standpoint with his input, than we would have just following the architect’s plans. He also is able to adjust ‘on the fly’ during construction as circumstances arise. His jobs got done on time, if not early.  His job sites are organized, safe and clean. - Steve & Molly Dutton

What our Clients Say!

I have had 5 homes built over the years including one other log home built by a big name builder near Petoskey. My dream home, built by Matthews Construction, was by far the best quality and most enjoyable experience. My home was built efficiently with the crews never pulled away to work at another site. The subcontractors were skilled craftsmen who cared about their work. Every detail was attended to even well after the job was completed. Jim made the experience of building, while I could only be on site every few months, easy. He helped me with my decisions on all aspects of my home, by giving plenty of options, helping me decide when I was uncertain. Saving money at every turn, Jim helped redirect my plans when they didn't seem to fit the project. He has an eye for what will work and what won't and strives to make his customers happy. I can honestly say I had no surprises. I would enthusiastically recommend Matthews Construction for any home construction job and would be happy to discuss my experience with anyone who wants more details. - Charlie Turk, Chicago, IL
