The formula works so don’t change it! It was the fortuitous personal referral of a friend that brought us to Gayler Design Build. Without reservation we will recommend them to our friends and associates. George Gayler deserves our special thanks for his patience as we choose from among his many imaginative ideas those that particularly suited us.
His talents as an architectural designer are equaled only by his eagerness to be forthright about the duration of construction and transparent about costs. Gayler Construction is a family business which includes his charming wife, Darlene, and astute son, Chris, who’s responsibility it is to keep close tabs on out additional work orders and to track expenses.
We thought Paul Panepinto was a terrific project manager. He was punctual, thoughtful and communicative. He anticipated problems so we could consider solutions together. He took careful notes at each weekly meeting and followed up on the issues. He was quick to involve others with talents or expertise that he respected.
Special note must be made to Jeff Harteau who is an alternate project manager and master carpenter. On top of all this, Paul was an engaging conversationalist with a refreshing sense of optimism. As construction dragged on he would say something like ‘…this is going to be really, really, good’ or remind us of the wisdom to be gained from one of his many aphorisms. A few things could not be completed before our planned Hawaii vacation. In our absence we felt confident in leaving Paul in charge of installation of the front door, completion of additional electrical work and resetting of the house alarm before he left.
