I would like to tell you, and anyone else that could use your services, how pleased we were with the work you performed on our rebuild after the complete loss of our original house.

From the very beginning until the last stone was laid, it has been a pleasure working with you and your family.

You have all the qualities a home owner hopes for and appreciates from a contractor.

Just to name a few:

  • Promptness. You started on the day we planned and were on site every day until each phase was completed. Not to mention you could set your watch by your arrival time each morning.
  • Accuracy. The layout and concrete pumping in the ICF forms is very  accurate and straight as the inside drywall was screwed directly to the ICF.
  • Workmanship. You would have to see the stone work to appreciate how good it looks. I would be glad to show anyone who would like to see it.
  • Pride in work. You strive to make everything as good as it can be. From subtle design changes to helping with picking colors, this all helped to make the end product great.

Chris Van Kessel Masonry put two fireplaces in our home.  There are no words to express my gratitude for their professionalism and expertise brought to this project.  When we started, we had no idea what was involved, the decisions we would need to make. Lori and Chris guided us through each step from picking out a stone to the most appropriate insert for our needs. They were always there to answer any questions we had.  Chris, Trevor and Justin took the time to find out what it was we wanted so they could bring it to life. There attention to detail and personal touch are clearly reflected in their work.   We truly learned through this process that masonry is an art.  To bring stone to life takes an exceptional eye and years of experience.  As a family owned and operated business, the pride of workmanship is easy to see. We absolutely love both fireplaces put in our home and we would recommend them to anyone.

We purchased our house 3 years ago from Chris and Lori Van Kessel and we couldn’t be happier. We have found the workmanship to be outstanding with incredible attention to detail. We also love how they designed the house to fit so perfectly on the lot making the most of the beautiful forest surrounding it. Even the bathroom and lighting fixtures were top quality so much so that we haven’t changed anything since we moved in. The attention to detail didn’t stop at the things you look at but extended to the mechanical systems as well. The furnace, electrical work and plumbing were all top notch and as a result the house is very energy efficient. All of this has made it our dream house and we are very grateful to Chris and Lori for being so professional and easy to work with!

Home Owners

The home that we bought from Lori (and Chris) Van Kessel has been such a wonderful decision for us. Lori and Chris have been terrific and the house suits us almost as if we designed it ourselves. Our family has been home builders through four generations and although not in the business any longer, we know quality – the Van Kessel’s have delivered that and more. From the location of the lot, architectural design, quality of work, choice of finishes and their friendship, we could not have chosen any better. We would highly recommend Lori and Chris Van Kessel to anyone looking for a new home by a quality builder and people.
