My husband Ben and I met Darin in 2012 when he was building a home across the street from us. I was instantly struck by his calm demeanor and desire to be a courteous, well-organized builder among us as homeowners. The opportunity arose for us to do a small renovation project in an apartment building on campus. We chose to work with Darin, thereby testing our ability to work with each other from initial conception, estimates and product choices, all the way to final completion. This experience proved to be not only a positive one, but the foundation for a long-term relationship. In 2014, we started a townhouse development at the Club of Old Hawthorne. Darin has been involved from the beginning. He has been present with us when tossing ideas around with our architect, giving a practical perspective, as well as all the work naturally involved onsite with a new development. We were very inexperienced at bringing a new development to reality from raw land. Darin’s calm demeanor throughout our navigation within this process once again proved to be an asset to both of us. We are about to begin building our custom home and couldn’t be more excited to be working with Darin once again. Our confidence in Darin’s desire for exceptional quality from start to finish, while staying on track with a budget, will undoubtedly lead us through to a home full of good memories from the beginning. It has been a pleasure to work with a young professional who truly enjoys his mission in life.
Darin worked with us on finishing our basement and we couldn't be happier. Not only did he oversee the construction, but we loved that he also had a hands-on role in it. He was always there to answer questions or change plans if we had a new idea and, overall, he was very helpful. We would recommend Darin to anyone building a home or project.
It's a miracle that we finally did this! Edit as you like or tell us if you are looking for something different. Darin File built the home we moved into earlier this year. As a builder, one of our friends who had built his own home said it all when he indicated he had never seen a better foundation. This speaks to the quality of Darin's work in every phase of building our home. Darin also works with a highly skilled set of subcontractors who are in every sense craftsmen in their own trade. We relied on their expert judgment and they never let us down. Personally, Darin was an absolute delight to work with; he is conscientious, patient, understanding, and attentive, and we felt supported and part of the process the entire way. We couldn't recommend Darin more highly and with his help building a house was a much more pleasant project than we could have ever anticipated. Feel free to contact us with any questions.
