Stan Grisham

“They did a professional, timely, and beautiful job.”

Lori Begin

“They listened to what we wanted and collaborated with us rather than trying to tell us what they wanted to build. In addition, we also had a very tight time frame for completion and they made it happen! Although I do not practice, I have an architecture degree and spent my college years interning with custom home builders and I can honestly say that their quality and attention to detail is top notch. I would build with them again without hesitation!”

Brent & Kris Gilot

Creekstone Outdoors went above and beyond our expectations to make our dreams come true of an outdoor kitchen/ sitting area/ bar area where we can entertain our friends and family. While they weren’t the cheapest, once they set a budget and we agreed upon it, they complete stuck to it, and gave us very little surprises. Only changes made were ones we requested and even then he tried to keep costs as low as possible as he wanted to stick to the budget he was given. It’s been almost a year now and we have only had to call them out twice for minor repairs. Both times they came out immediately, no questions asked, and solved the problems quickly. I can’t say enough about this company. They are our outdoor contractors for life! Sam Hickey has been an absolute pleasure to work with!
