Leslie and I can't thank you enough for the wonderful collaboration and great work on the deck and pergola. Even as of yesterday, people are stopping to take a closer look and ask about the work and who did it. We'll continue to send them your way!

Bill & Leslie Clegg

In 2009, we wanted to build an outdoor living space and sought a general contractor that would have detail precision and high quality craftsmanship.  After speaking with several people from church, many spoke about the integrity and building capabilities of Dave Collin.  On our first consultation, Dave Collin was examining the landscape and immediately noticed the way water would flow towards the crawlspace.  He gave insight on maintenance, water erosion, and the types of materials that would be aligned with our low maintenance outdoor requirements.  He provided landscape layouts and even procured the best cost to seal our crawlspace and prevent any water corrosion.  Even the partners he used to perform the insulation or plumbing needed to pass his standards of quality.  More importantly, each Trex plank he laid were meticulously lined up to the point where the screws were perfectly placed to produce a cohesive pattern or design and not just random placements.  He also used colors to match the deck with the stone pillars and curved Trex materials to emulate the effect of simple lines and smooth tapering.  In terms of attention to detail, even the removal of rubbish or waste materials were done daily and always kept the principle of leaving the place better than when he first entered.  In summary, Custom Backyard Adventures was truly a remarkable journey of how you transform your outdoor yard to a place where living goes beyond your home.

Dave and his team did a great job working with us to design and construct our new Covered Porch and Deck. Our favorite feature is the custom designed privacy wall that they built for us.  We had them return later to complete our backyard oasis with a Stone patio & firepit.  We would highly recommend them for any backyard project you have in mind!

Dave & Charlene Collin are exactly the type of people that you hope to find whenever you are looking to hire a contractor. They are honest, hardworking, and do what they say that they are going to do. Collin Homes and Custom Backyard Adventures have helped us complete multiple projects on 2 different homes in the past 5 or 6 years. They have delivered a great result each time and we have become friends in the process. How often do you hear that said?

When it comes to working with the Custom Backyard Adventures team, we’ve had top notch customer service with amazing results for a variety of projects. In our first experience with David, we trusted him with a porch project. Our un-used, unsightly back deck was transformed into an outdoor dream space! The custom porch was designed with both functionality and visual appeal, and it completely changed the architecture of our former simple cookie cutter home. Highlighted by a gorgeous pergola with shaded screens, the porch has become more like an additional room added to our home than just an outdoor space. We started as just clients, but the Collins have made us feel more like family!
