We did an extensive remodeling of our 1976 rambler in the spring of 2010. We chose Del as our general contractor as our daughter and neighbors had used him and were very pleased with his expertise. We needed upgrades to our electrical, windows, deck, light fixtures, flooring, wall coverings, kitchen counter and back splash. Del always made us feel as though we were his only customers. We know that wasn't true as he is very busy. Any of our concerns were important to him and were addressed quickly. We decided on the amount of money we would spend and he saw to it that it came in on budget. His crew was very professional and efficient as the whole project was completed in about 8 weeks. We would recommend Del to anyone needing a general contractor.

We contacted Delan after seeing some of the work he had done on previous projects.
From the start Delan was very easy to work with, taking the time to understand what we wanted in our addition/remodel. We expressed what we hoped to achieve with a budget in mind and he was able to present various plans for us to consider. He has a very good knowledge of what it takes to do a job including the cost and time required. He is open minded and willing to look at new ideas.
We found that not only Delan, but also his crew, to be very punctual and respectful of our home. They took the extra step to keep the construction site clean and as user friendly as possible during construction. He was able to schedule subcontractors in a manner that kept the project moving forward on a timely basis. Delan encountered several unforeseen situations during the project and was able to sit down and fully explain our options along with costs. He scheduled regular meetings with us to keep us up to date on the progress throughout the project. His honesty and integrity made our building experience a positive one.
We would certainly contact him again for any future construction projects and highly recommend him for any project large or small.

"We were very pleased with the work Delan and his crew from Dakota Carpentry completed on our home. Delan took the time to carefully assist us in our plan to add a porch, new windows, siding and doors to our home and build a second garage. The work was completed on time, within the allotted budget and was hassle-free. We would highly recommend Dakota Carpentry for your next home project."

We experienced the expertise of Delan Schmidts carpentry skills before he was known as Dakota Carpentry. We lived in a small rambler that at times felt suffocating. Delan helped us out with that by taking out a wall, removing an entrance door and stairway and moving the stairway to an area of the house that was more user friendly, which increased our floor space. He did an amazing job!!
Several years down the road when we made the decision to build a house, we brought our ideas to Delan and he spent as much time as we needed to make sure the floor plan was what we wanted and needed. During the building process he was willing to make changes if something didn't 'feel' right to us. He is a bit of a perfectionist and puts a lot of pride into the work he does. Oh, and he is honest too!! I have recommended Delan's work to friends in the past and will continue to recommend his work when I get the opportunity---like this one.
DELAN=high standard character=high standard work.
