It’s been four years since we’ve had our home built in Autumn-wood by Ted Hvarre. He was easy to work with, as we made several changes in the house plans. Recently, we had Ted install a new window. We got three estimates, He was the only bidder who made a effort to match our existing windows. We are very happy with the work, his helper, and their clean-up. Autumn-wood is a good place to live. Our neighbors are close and caring. Ask us about our garbage party night!

We were initially impressed with the location of Overlook Gardens: a semi-rural setting with trees and rolling terrain, yet close to major stores, and highways including Interstate 88. A plus for us was the homeowners’ association which provides mowing with grass and landscape trimming, snow removal and gutter cleaning. For a purchaser such as us, it was important that we owned the property complete, not only the building, but the lot on which our duplex unit sits. This we get at Overlook Gardens. We were pleased with the quality of construction, not only the materials used, but the workmanship of the craftsmen: carpenters, plumbers, electricians, painters, masons, roofers, etc. Ted Hvarre, the developer, worked closely with us from initial contract signing through closing. He allowed us to custom design our interior: wall placement, flooring (wood, tile, carpet) and fixtures. He and his crew even designed and built a Roman Shower for us! After moving in we were immediately welcomed by the friendly Overlook Gardens community. It didn’t take long to feel at home.
