When you own an old house, it’s extra tough to find a reliable, honest, trust-worthy contractor that “gets it” and will love and respect your old house, but I found one.
And now I’m worried about losing him.
Yesterday I got a call from David Strickland, who is *the* contractor that did most of the work on our home in Colonial Place. He truly is one of the most skilled craftsmen I’ve ever encountered. In addition to his 30 years of experience, he’s incredibly gifted and talented and just has a real “vision” for this work.
He’s not just a carpenter who can patch things together, but a true artisan in every sense of the word, and I don’t say that lightly.
As a nice bonus, he’s one of the most honest men I’ve ever known. If I had a single complaint about David, it would be this: He does not charge enough for his work.
Yesterday, David told me that his phone has stopped ringing and he’s going to have to make some hard choices soon if work doesn’t start up again.
Two years ago, he did a $100,000+ room addition for a friend of mine, and she was thrilled with the quality of the work. And it was a beautiful job. Whether it’s a room addition or a few shelves, he does it all. He’s licensed and insured, and it’d be a sin to lose him to another line of work. He’s too talented and too honest to lose.
If you’d like to see samples of his work, scroll on down. He’s done so much work for us, and I’ve never met another contractor who comes close to this level of quality.
His name is David Strickland and his number is 237-6492. I hope you’ll give him a call.
Give David a call at 237-6492.

You could do a review on Angie’/s list and maybe the better business bureau so when people check those resources, he’ll have glowing reviews!
Hi, I know how you feel. Fortunately business has picked up a bit for my team. Wish I had more work to go around. You might want to include his area code for those of us in the area. I hope things turn around for all their sakes.
Hi Rose. Do you happen to live in the Chicago area? I wanted to know if you might be interested in doing a program about Sears Homes for our organization. If not, do you know of any other experts in the area?
Rose- we are looking for someone to do some work on our Sears farmhouse- where is David located?
