Build With Freedom

A few years ago, Eric and Michelle were kind enough to let us document their build. We’d like to thank them for letting us follow their progress and congratulate them on their brand new home.

Client Experiences

We could go on telling you why Freedom is a great company to work with, but don’t take our word for it. Here’s what a few of our customers have to say:

“As my wife and I reflect back on building our home with Freedom Homes, a couple of things always come to mind. Mike (Rice) ALWAYS answered the phone when we called and had questions. Secondly we were able to visit our homesite frequently which let us feel like we were part of the project. Mike truly was more than our builder; he was a friend throughout the entire process.” – Dale and Johanna Gooding


“When we were looking for a local builder to quote a garage we wanted built, I contacted Mike and two other “builders” in the area. Mike and one other called me back, both gave quotes. But after talking with customers of Freedom Homes I picked them to build my garage. They were meticulous with the project from start to finish! The project finished on time and on budget! Mike also dod an emergency Bathroom remodel for us which turned out great and assisted with the build out of our business too! Best part of the experience; he’s become a close friend too!” – Rick & Debby Le Beau


“I must thank you again for our beautiful kitchen. Some of the family are coming over for Xmas, and we’ll spread the goodies all over your granite counter top – it works like a charm” – Mr. & Mrs. Dick Rexroad


“What started out as a small kitchen makeover has become the heart of our home. We are absolutely amazed at what Mike has done with this space. With the addition of a beautiful 13 foot island, vaulted ceiling and open floor plan, this stunning kitchen has created a whole new opportunity for entertainment and memories.” – Mark and Stacy Manzo


“Mike Rice is an exceptional craftsman. He has the vision, know-how, ability and tools to do the job right. I have used Mike for a variety of projects and he has always exceeded my expectations.” – Mark Gaylor


“We love having him do work for us, as not only is he a perfectionist: he is even a better person. His ethics are above reproach and he will do whatever it takes to get the job done to your satisfaction. Nothing is too difficult for him to tackle; he knows how to make something you will love. We absolutely love every job he has done for us. We wholeheartedly recommend him, he is a true gem.” – Joyce and Jim Levine


“Thank you!  Everything looks great.  You and your team did an awesome job and we are thrilled with the end result.   It’s everything you promised us and more.  We will enjoy many, many years in our beautiful new space.”  – Jeff & Mary Beth Houlahan


“Thank you so much for the fabulous job on our basement.  You have a great crew!  The work was done professionally and quickly.  We will miss seeing you every day!”  – Paul & Jeri Serbinowski


“Your crew was great!  I was really surprise how everyone blended into my family.  Everyone was pleasant, and they went right to work.  Everyone was open for comments and didn’t make me feel dumb.  I would recommend your firm for any job.” – Pat Winemiller


“Just a note to say thank you for your excellent service.  You did all that you promised, fairly priced, expertly rendered, and in the amount of time that you stated.  You and your staff are very pleasant to deal with and I am recommending you to all.” – Edna Black


“I know (my clients) Bill and Sue Blind are very pleased with the craftsmanship your company provided for them in their revamping of the downstairs.  I was happy to recommend you to them because of your many great attributes – timeliness, efficiency, cleanliness, and knowledge.  Thanks again .. for doing such an exemplary construction job” -Debi Danals, Interior Designer, ASID, CQRID


“Thank you so much for the beautiful job that you did on our tile floors – we just love them.  Also, your clean-up was so much better than I would have done!  You certainly have our stamp of approval and we will not only use you again, but we will tell others of our experience.” ~Bill & Diane Holko


“Anthony and I wanted to thank you for the excellent work you did at our home. We could not be happier with not only the end product, but also your care and attention to detail the entire way through.” ~Katie Wojno-Lancianese


“We were so pleased that Freedom were so professional and easy to work with during our deck build. We were shocked that it only took 4 days from start to finish to build our 20×20 second story deck with built in benches and flower pots. The crew was friendly and respectful during the time they were at our home. It was such a good feeling to come home every night and see how much was done and they cleaned the area every night before they left, so I didn’t have to worry about my dog stepping on a nail outside or seeing cigarette butts and trash left outside around our home. We will always recommend Freedom to our family and friends. We have told Mike and Jeff to feel free to bring people by at anytime to see their workmanship first hand. Mike brought us to a house in the area that had a deck built with the same material we were looking into and that was a huge selling point to us.” – Kelly & Tod Benson


“Thank you for a wonderful job remodeling our basement. We are very pleased with the work and look forward to many years of enjoying the added space to our home.

You took a lot of time listening to our needs and ideas about the basement and helping us come up with the perfect use of space to suit our family’s needs. Your crew was courteous and respectful of our home, cleaning up each day before leaving. You kept us informed and involved in each step of the project.

We would highly recommend Freedom to any of our friends and neighbors and would welcome showing off our newly finished basement to any of your clients interested in seeing a finished product.

Thanks again for a job well done. It’s great to work with someone who has such integrity and concern for fine workmanship!” – Rob and Jeannine Reese


“I have worked in the building industry for many years; the last fifteen have been in contractor lumber sales. I have worked with Freedom for the last several years, and have witnessed first hand how they operate their business with a great deal of pride, concern, and customer empathy. I recommend Freedom to people that I meet in my industry, and recommend that you consider Freedom for your upcoming building projects.” ~Mr. Todd Locy, Graves Lumber


“Freedom was very thorough. They did things to a degree of excellence and professionalism that is rarely seen. They made sure everything was done right, and then even returned after completion to upgrade a few things they didn’t feel were quite good enough.” ~Dr. & Mrs. Pankuch


Our sunroom is the talk of the neighborhood. We are very proud of your work! ~Mary & Vassili Illitch


“We focus on quality people who offer honesty and integrity. Freedom communicated with us through the entire building process. They let us know who was coming, when they were coming… there were many different trades involved. They were able to coordinate schedules, and give us an update daily. They were always there for deliveries, inspections, etc. They were a real pleasure to work with.” ~Mr. & Mrs. Rich Iler


“We couldn’t be happier that we chose Freedom to build our dream home. They have been extremely easy to work through the entire process; from identifying a lot to choosing our floor plan, to facilitating the completion of the landscaping. We had so many choices that it began to be overwhelming. They were very patient and helpful all the time. We were told that building a new home would be very stressful, however Freedom minimized the stress for us!” – Eric & Lisa Jaber


“Freedom just finished some major remodeling for us and we couldn’t we happier with the results. Jeff and Mike were a dream to work with, in fact; we have never worked with such professional, accommodating, trustworthy and delightful builders. We would use them again in a heartbeat and will recommend them to everyone we know. They were extremely thorough, patient and so helpful in everything they did. We love our new kitchen and dining room – thank you so much!” – Jim and Joyce Levine


“We had our kitchen remodeled in the fall of 2007. We had a wonderful experience with Freedom . They were willing to answer questions and they had creative ideas. They were prompt, as they finished the project when they said they would finish. The work is that of high quality and there were no surprise charges. They were completely professional. We highly recommend Freedom to anyone. We appreciated them and will definitely use them again ourselves.” -Julie and Don Haines, Hudson, Ohio
