We say every day how much we love our house.Read more
Our first year (in our new home) has been amazing and we say every day how much we love our house. Our neighbors in the Rose Creek neighborhood are all so friendly and inviting. We’re definitely here to stay and look forward to many years in our home.
You all are truly professional and I would not hesitate to recommend you…
Our experience with Timberlake was wonderful. You all are truly professional and I would not hesitate to recommend you to friends.
The Timberlake team worked miracles with both the house and timeline and we will always be very grateful.
After dealing with rain every day in September, Timberlake was still able to complete our home in time for us to move across the county and move in shortly before Christmas. The house is beautiful and my wife and I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out. It was refreshing to work with a team from across the country that I could tell very quickly was hardworking, honest, down to earth, and extremely competent. The Timberlake team worked miracles with both the house and timeline and we will always be very grateful. Timberlake knocked it out of the park.
I cannot say enough about this fabulous company or the team they provide.
Timberlake Design Build helped us renovate our house and turn it into the home of our dreams. My husband and I had some basic ideas of what we wanted but it was Timberlake Design that brought those to life. They brought the creativity, knowledge, and hard work that got the job done. They worked with us from start to finish, always keeping in mind our “must haves,” our taste and our budget. They were honest when something wouldn’t work, and were always able to provide several creative options. They also pointed out where we could cut costs, and what was worth the splurge. The ENTIRE team was available to us every day throughout the project. Dave Lunden and our Project Manager Mike were visible and available by email every day. They redesigned our entire main level including kitchen/family room/great room and remodeled two smaller bathrooms upstairs. They helped give us a newly-designed, family-friendly home that works for us and our four kids and dog. They were even able to help us figure a long-term plan to make it easier to do some down the road projects, but incorporating the idea of those projects into the current work. I cannot say enough about this fabulous company or the team they provide. We recommend them to EVERYONE we know and will have them back when we are ready for phase II. Thanks, Timberlake.
Timberlake Design did a fantastic job from start to finish.
Timberlake Design did a fantastic job from start to finish. Design through finishing details. Can’t say enough. They built a screened-in porch over an existing deck. Open to my idea during the design process. Was able to take what I liked the best and add it to the design and make it work. Listened to what we said and actually made it matter. The staff was great. On time, courteous, detail-oriented. The project timeline was spot on. Inspections, subcontractors, clean-up, etc. Would highly recommend them for your construction, renovation needs.
They were a pleasure to work with during every step of the process. Everyone at Timberlake was honest, very reliable and extremely organized.
We hired Timberlake to do an extensive renovation of our home in 2009. They were a pleasure to work with during every step of the process. Everyone at Timberlake was honest, very reliable, and extremely organized. The project was finished on time and on budget. It progressed exactly as he said that it would with no hidden costs or delays. The Project Manager and all of the subcontractors were a pleasure to deal with on a daily basis. They shared in our enthusiasm, were polite, highly skilled, hard working and responsive. I have spoken with several people who have had extensive renovations done to their home and frequently it was a stressful and unpleasant experience for them. I can honestly say that our experience with Timberlake was the opposite. Since the renovation, I have contacted them several times for questions about materials or warranties and they have always responded to my requests immediately. If we were ever to renovate another home we would definitely use Timberlake.
It is refreshing to know that there are still companies and people within companies that respect each other and are true working partners to get a job/whatever completed/done.
It is refreshing to know that there are still companies and people within companies that respect each other and are true working partners to get a job/whatever completed/done. Kevin and I are very happy and can’t wait to see how our home is going to be transformed. Thanks again!
Timberlake delivered a home that exceeded our expectations in every way.
My wife and I hired Timberlake Design & Build to build a home for us in June 2018. We actually hired them the day after we fired our first builder. We built a 4,600 square foot waterfront home on the Chesapeake Bay (subject to all the critical area laws and regulations). The most difficult part of our build was the land we had picked. It was a wetland that couldn’t even support the weight of a car without it sinking. Timberlake DB worked directly with our engineers and their own soil expert in an extremely detailed manner to determine the most effective and cost-efficient way to build on this lot. They addressed the soil-bearing capacity issues as well the high water table in a way that now you wouldn’t even know we built on a wetland. Our first builder told us we couldn’t even build on this lot and Timberlake took over and worked with us every step of the way and delivered a home that exceeded our expectations in every way.
Aside from the site work and the difficulty building on this lot Dave and the design team went above and beyond to accommodate some changes we wanted to their standard model. The pricing was known upfront and was fair for everything we changed. We added windows, moved doors and walls where we wanted and it all turned out exactly as planned. Even some of the smallest changes were available such as installing high-rise garage doors to make room for an automotive lift in the future.
During construction again the Timberlake team delivered. During construction, I was stopping by the house often and checking on progress. Once construction started it moved along very quickly and I was kept in the loop on any delays. There were no delays through the entire project as a result of Timberlake, they scheduled and worked as promised. I pointed out issues as we went through the construction process with minor things that arose and the team worked to fix them as they occurred so that during our final walk-through only minor touch-ups were needed.
The last thing that has stood out to my wife and me is the support we have gotten from the team after the completion of our house. Andy and Dave did a fantastic job explaining all of our homes systems to us, the warranties we have, and who to reach out to with any issues. We have had no issues aside from minor adjustments needed as the house settles. We reached out recently on two doors that were now not closing properly due to settlement and someone was out to fix the doors within 2 business days.
Great job Timberlake, Dave, and Andy we will be recommending you to anyone we know looking into building a home and we appreciate all of your hard work!
We were extremely impressed with Timberlake and would recommend them for any home improvement project.
We have a unique Southern California custom rancher which was designed and built in the early 1960s. The house sits on a concrete slab and had no basement. We wanted to add on an addition that would give us some additional room for the kids as well as a basement. We started working with Dave Lunden and the Timberlake team several years before we actually started the project. Once we began the project, Dave and his team worked meticulously to ensure that the new addition would match the existing house design to give the impression it was part of the original structure. Timberlake did a fabulous job throughout the building process to ensure every detail was met to complete satisfaction. I was especially impressed when one of the inspectors came in a said “Oh this is a Timberlake project, they always keep their job site clean and we rarely find any issues.”
I think the biggest part of a successful project and satisfied customer is tied to the project manager, who is the primary customer-facing individual. Ken did an awesome job in his role as project manager. His default answer for everything is “No problem we will take care of it.” That statement certainly put us at ease many times during the project when issues or concerns arose.
We were extremely impressed with Timberlake and would recommend them for any home improvement project.
The project was on budget and finished on time. We would have no hesitation working with Timberlake Design Build in the future.
We hired Timberlake Design Build for the second time to renovate a 1997 Colonial. The project involved whole house renovations of approximately 5,000 sf.
We were extremely pleased with Timberlake’s knowledge of industry practices, identification of great vendors and suppliers, management of the building process, and ability to accommodate changes. The management personnel of Timberlake are a pleasure to deal with. They offered creative solutions to design challenges and executed the design beautifully. The project was on budget and finished on time. We would have no hesitation working with Timberlake Design Build in the future.
I am still amazed at how easy it all was. I would recommend Timberlake Homes to anyone!
Their honesty and non-pressure sales approach made it very easy for me to relax and concentrate on whether or not the homes’ features and benefits and that of the community were truly what we were looking for. It was a great experience from beginning to end and we are so very happy to have found this community. Not only do we (and our entire family) love this home, we love our neighbors and our neighborhood!
Customer service is very important to us and the entire Timberlake Homes team delivered it. It’s been 2 months since our closing and we still receive calls and visits to ensure that everything is going well and that we are happy with the home. The buying process was pleasant, amazingly stress-free and so smooth that we were sure that there were going to be surprises during the closing. There weren’t and I am still amazed at how easy it all was. I would recommend Timberlake Homes to anyone! If you are looking for a beautiful house on a huge lot, a stress-free buying experience, and a great value you will find it here.
You have remained professional and courteous and always quick to respond and resolve.
Thanks again for all you do and your patience with me while I have been stressed out, confused, and let us not forget, ignorant when it comes to new construction. You have remained professional and courteous and always quick to respond and resolve. If you ever need a reference, please do not hesitate to call on me.
We feel grateful to have found the Timberlake Design team and are thrilled with our home.
We worked with Dave through virtually every aspect of the home planning, building, and settling. Timberlake was great throughout! While they don’t have a lot of building in Montgomery County Maryland, Dave and team was diligent, professional and informative throughout. We feel grateful to have found the Timberlake Design team and are thrilled with our home.
We won’t hesitate to tell our friends and neighbors about how wonderful Timberlake was to work with.
To all the folks at Timberlake – CONGRATULATIONS – and thank you, thank you, thank you on a very tough whole house renovation on an original, 1955 stacked 5-level stone house in Cape Arthur. Very well done and we won’t hesitate to tell our friends and neighbors about how wonderful Timberlake was to work with.
We still get many compliments from friends and neighbors alike about the project.
We were extremely happy with Timberlake. After interviewing three companies, we found Timberlake to be the most flexible and accommodating to our (changing) needs. Everyone we worked with was terrific and represented the company very well. We feel we got to know them quite well and I enthusiastically introduced friends and neighbors to them when they asked about our project. Our project included a three-story addition (including finished attic) multiple dormer windows, MD flagstone paved front porch, a completely redone and enlarged kitchen, and new exterior HardiePlank and stone siding throughout. Two years later, we are still very pleased with the quality and workmanship, having had not a single post-completion issue with the work. We still get many compliments from friends and neighbors alike about the project. We would not hesitate to recommend Timberlake.
…Flawless, timely, and affordable.
We demolished an old portion of the house and added an addition that included a new kitchen, bathroom, entryway, mudroom, double garage, and recreation room above the garage with a full bath. Timberlake is a superb contractor. Their work was flawless, timely, and affordable. Every employee they have, and subcontractor they used, was a true pleasure to deal with. They took all of the stress out of a very stressful process. They responded to every request we made, and then some, adding special touches to the project. I recommend them wholeheartedly.
We enjoyed every minute of working with the Timberlake team and won’t hesitate to recommend you to all of our friends.
Suzanne and I wanted to write and thank you for the wonderful job Timberlake did in completing our expansion and renovation project; the magic word all owners like to hear… way ahead of schedule and under budget. Timberlake’s attention to detail, quality craftsmanship, collaborative spirit, and knowledgeable advice on engineering and architectural expression were outstanding. Through your assistance in the permit acquisition process, scheduling of inspections, coordination of all the subcontractors, and working with our community design and construction regulations you made the process enjoyable. Our neighbors in the community were very appreciative of how neat and tidy you kept the site during construction and the courteous nature of your field superintendent. We enjoyed every minute of working with the Timberlake team and won’t hesitate to recommend you to all of our friends.
Timberlake went above and beyond to deliver.
Very happy with Dave & the entire team at Timberlake Design Build. They built our home in record time to a somewhat demanding list of requirements. Dave & crew went above and beyond to deliver.
Tremendous job and attention to detail. Exactly what we expected.
The Timberlake team built our custom home on the Severn River. Complicated site, on a hillside with waterfront restrictions. Further, our road is narrow and not easy for trucks to pass. Timberlake completed the home per our specific and detailed design, on budget, and within a tight schedule. Both of these were stated priorities for us from our earliest meetings with Dave Lunden and team. Most notably, if Dave and Andy tell you they will do something (proactively or re-actively) they do it. Post-move in communications have been excellent. They were just as reliable and helpful prior to getting our job as they were during and after construction. The team worked well with one of the most creative architects in the Mid Atlantic, Jonathan Rivera. Another critical point dynamic Timberlake handled great. Tremendous job and attention to detail. Exactly what we expected. Even our more “concerned” neighbors were impressed by the process at the end of construction. Highly recommended.
Their attention to detail ensured we had no surprises, and have unconditionally stood by their work.
Timberlake performed a significant and sizable renovation for our home in Annapolis. Timberlake did a fantastic job! Dave Lunden and his team were proactive on design and material options, finished on time and under budget!! Our community association also has very specific and arduous rules & requirements which Timberlake managed extremely well. The three best things about Timberlake are that each member of the team was nicer than the last, their attention to detail ensured we had no surprises, and have unconditionally stood by their work.
From the first time we met you, we knew what an upstanding, honorable company you were.
From the first time we met you, we knew what an upstanding, honorable company you were. That’s one of the many reasons we trusted our renovation project to Timberlake. Thank you for your patience and dedication – we love our ‘new’ home!
Every effort was made to ensure my satisfaction.
When you make a purchase as important and expensive as buying a home, you want to get it right. The fear of wading through unfamiliar territory (was) laid to rest by the crack team of Kathy, Jason, and Richard. The entire process is repetitive—the details were handled by Kathy. She holds your hand every step of the way. Every time it was reiterated over and over again for clarity and accuracy. Next, I was handed over to Jason and Richard…for the formal choosing of the features of the home. Every effort was made to ensure my satisfaction. Thanks guys for your availability and generosity of time.
Timberlake Homes provided us with a home that we love.
Timberlake Homes provided us with a home that we love. Their quality work and commitment to customers during the building process as well as after completion are admirable. We highly recommend Timberlake Homes to anyone looking to build or buy a quality home.
We want to thank you for this amazing home. We are so happy to be here!
We want to thank you so very much for such a beautiful home! We have heard so many horror stories from people about having their home built, but thanks to Jeff, Danny, and Jim, this was stress-free! Jeff was wonderful from the first time we met him back in September. We explained how we needed to sell in Florida before we did anything here and he was understanding. There was no pressure from him. When we went back in January he remembered us and once again he was kind and did not pressure us. He was ever so patient with all our questions even before we decided to have a home built. Once the decision was made Jeff kept us informed every step of the way. He is a really nice guy and although we know he has sold a lot more homes and that is good, we just wish he would slow down so we can have him here longer. Maybe you can buy some more property here and have him stay.
Again, we want to thank you for this amazing home. We are so happy to be here!
Timberlake…welcomed us in and made us feel like family.
Timberlake…welcomed us in and made us feel like family. The entire staff and all the support personnel were definitely primary factors in choosing our home. Kathy was very open and honest with us and made us feel like she had our best interests at heart. She explained every step of the process to us and quite literally held our hands…throughout the entire affair. I never felt pressured, rushed, or manipulated, and having been through (buying a home) twice before, I would have recognized it quickly. Our loan officer was very professional and almost a year later I feel we got the best deal possible.
We were very satisfied with the entire process, level of service, and the product provided by Timberlake.
I have been the Architect on several projects working with Dave Lunden and Timberlake. Dave’s hands-on approach starts during the design phase. This upfront input is critical to the project’s success.
When it came time to renovate our new home, we acquired multiple prices. While Timberlake’s estimate was not the lowest, they were very competitive. When we considered the added value their experience and approach brought to the table they were the obvious choice.
Our renovations included reorganizing the existing space layout and repurposing other spaces. We opened up walls to create a large open plan and expand the kitchen. The project also included improvements to the master suite.
Timberlake took special care to isolate the construction area from the remaining home and protect the finishes to remain. This was critical to keep the budget in line and allow us to stage in the areas of the home not being renovated.
During construction, we came across some significant structural issues due to the unusual framing configuration employed by the original builder. Timberlake called in a structural engineer and had a solution developed in 1 day. They did the remedial framing over the weekend and were able to put us back on schedule in no time. This is just one example of the type of attention and dedication Timberlake brought to our project and the reason they were selected to perform the work in the first place.
We were very satisfied with the entire process, level of service, and the product provided by Timberlake, and highly recommend them to anyone looking to make improvements to their home.
We are very pleased with the manner in which the whole process was done from the beginning to the end.
We are very pleased with the manner in which the whole process was done from the beginning to the end. We would recommend the Timberlake team to anyone looking to purchase a good custom-built home with a smooth process. Thanks again for everything you have done for us.
We couldn't be happier with the quality, service, and attention to detail.
We recently purchased a Timberlake Home at Timber Village. When we first decided to build a new home, we started to do our homework and were overwhelmed with the number of different home builders to choose from, which made the idea of building a home a daunting task. But once we visited Timber Village, we were instantly impressed with the quality of their work and the one-on-one attention they gave to us as potential clients. But, what most impressed us were the things that came standard in their homes…things that other home builders charged an arm and leg for as upgrades! Plus, they were willing to work with us to customize a few things in our home to make it personal and exactly what we wanted. We walked away that day with a contract to build our dream home!
From that day forward, our home building process was very exciting and the Timberlake staff did everything possible to make it stress-free. From the day we signed our contract to the day we closed on our home, the entire staff did everything in their power to let us know that their number one goal was our 100% satisfaction. And, it didn’t stop there. Once we were in our home, the staff was always available to answer our questions and even stopped by to see how we were settling into our new home. It was very clear to us from the beginning that Timberlake Homes is a family-owned business that cares about families.
We love everything about our new home! We couldn’t be happier with the quality, service, and attention to detail and would recommend Timberlake Homes to anyone who is looking to build the home of their dreams…they certainly made ours come true!
You have the best employees that a builder could have.
You have the best employees that a builder could have. Jeff was honest and made a difficult purchase painless. Your construction team was very helpful and patient with us since we were first-time homeowners and were always asking them for advice.
