Shortly after meeting Jackye, I knew Crane Builders was the one for our project.   Jackye understood my vision and I couldn’t be happier with the results. She and her amazing team turned our attic into a coastal chic second floor living space for our 3 boys. Every member of her team is very professional, very kind and truly skilled at what they do. I continue to use Crane for additional smaller projects too. They are fabulous!”

From the first meeting to the last-working with Crane Builders was a pleasure.  Everyone was very organized, knowledgeable and professional. Workmen were courteous and kept the job site orderly.  Our project was finished on budget and ahead of schedule!  Who could ask for more.”

Having used Crane Builders for various large and small projects in the past, we didn’t think twice about calling them to design and build our “forever home”.  It’s been almost a year since completion of our home and we love it more and more each day.  The experience we had building our “forever” home with Crane Builders was truly second to none. From inception of the project, multiple revisions including a complete rewrite, to finally moving in, it was an exciting and wonderful experience. The attention to detail was impeccable and the craftsmanship was flawless.  The “can do” attitude demonstrated a real commitment to customer service always going to great lengths to insure we were and remain completely satisfied.  In the early planning stages, they listened to what we wanted and made great suggestions along the way.  From the day the building permit was issued, we were always kept abreast of what’s was going to happen next in the building process.  There no unanswered questions.  Jackye communicates all the little details every step of the way and wants the customer to be educated on each decision.  There was great peace of mind knowing Crane Builders was only a phone call away.  Finally the most amazing thing happened-Our home was completed ahead of schedule and within budget!  We would not hesitate to recommend Crane Builders for any project-large or small.

“Let me begin by saying I have never wanted to build a house.  I have loved every used and abused old house I have ever lived in. However, when I decided it was time to rebuild on my property in Waveland, Mississippi seven long years after hurricane Katrina, I picked up the telephone and called my old friend Jimmy Crane.

I explained to Jimmy that one of my main requirements was that I did not want to be driving back and forth from Avery Island to Waveland . That we would have to do most of this via email and telephone. I then described to Jimmy basically what I wanted.  Within a week I received  the floor plans to a house that was absolutely what I had described.  Jimmy Crane truly listened to what I said; he did not overlook one detail.  He got it right right from the get-go!

Off-site construction of my house began in February. When the “pods” were delivered, the subs were on the job immediately.  By the end of June I was able to spend the night in my new house!  It was a miracle. It was also the easiest major project that I have ever undertaken.  I made exactly 2 trips to Mississippi in order to pick out flooring, carpet, cabinets, etc.  Also of importance was the fact that there were “no surprises” along the way and the final cost was to the penny as quoted.  How rare is that?

Team Crane (as I so fondly call Jimmy, Sharon, Jackye and their crew) are miracle workers. Never have I ever seen so many happy dedicated people that seem to absolutely love their job and respect the people that they work for and with. In fact, many of the men have been with Jimmy for years which speaks volumes as to Jimmy’s integrity. These workers were an integral part of this project being such a pleasure.

Bottom line:  I cannot imagine building a house any other way or without Team Crane.  OH!  I forgot to mention – I LOVE  MY HOUSE!!!”
