Metro-Detroit (South Lyon, Michigan) Construction Sub-Contractors

Below are the names and info about sub-contractors I hired when building a house in 2007.  I acted as the general contractor.  The house was a 1456 square foot ranch, located in South Lyon, Michigan.

Lovelace Excavating
Jesse Lovelace
9325 N Rushton Rd
South Lyon, MI 48178
(248) 437-2040
Info: All that can be said about Jesse is: good work, on time, down to earth, fair price.  An  all around great guy to work with.  Highly  recommended.  Has experienced people working for him.  He did my driveway, dug basement, and filled in the basement, as well as some re-landscaping.
Cement walls and footings:
Con-Form, Inc
Jeff LaChance, owner
299 N. Mill St.
South Lyon, MI 48178
Contact Hornet Concrete to talk to Jeff at: 248-437-1383
Info: Con-Form did poured basement footings and walls for my 1456 sq. ft. ranch home.  He used aluminum forms, and did a very nice job of getting all the measurments right, per the drawing.  He ended up having to use a pump to  pour the walls, which was an extra charge, but I was aware of the extra charge up front.  Took him about 1.5 weeks from start to finish.  Overall, very nice job for a reasonable price.
Rough Framing:
John & Sharon Thompson
13066 Michalek's Lane
South Lyon, MI 48173
Ph: 248-437-0265
Info: framed my 1456 sq. ft. ranch using lumber I purchased from Iverson's Lumber in Milford, MI.  John and his crew were very efficient and quick.  They actually did not need any extra material, and used most of the material that was provided.  They did a very solid job of framing the house, even the building inspector was impressed.  It took them 4 days from start to finish.  Overall, very good job, excellent price.
