ardwick Construction has been designing and building custom homes in Traverse City, Grand Traverse County, Leelanau County, and Antrim County since 1986.
From the beginning Terry & Diane Hardwick decided that client satisfaction would be the prime directive, and key to success. They listen to individual wants and needs of clients and walk them carefully through the building process. Terry's home designs meet the hopes and dreams of clients and at the same time assure that the home will function well and that budget considerations are addressed.
Some clients bring architectural plans of their own, others, sketches on graph paper or magazine pictures. Some say, “Start from scratch.” In every case, clear, honest communication between clients and builder is vital. An easy to understand contract and specifications mean no surprise “extras” to worry about. Any changes are addressed in writing, before occurring, at an agreed upon cost. As a General Contractor and former "hands on" builder, Terry has worked with carefully selected subcontractors and suppliers for many years and is on site every day making sure that high expectations are met and that work proceeds in a timely manner. He treats workers and suppliers with dignity and respect. In return he expects only their best. There isn’t a person on a job site that he wouldn’t be proud to have the home owner meet.
Quality materials go into each home and all the “invisible” non glamour things are done right. Diane is your contact in the office and is there to lend a friendly ear listening to your dreams or concerns. As a returned Traverse City native, Diane is well aware of your hopes and dreams when you select the beautiful Northern Michigan region as your home. We want your new home to become part of the realization of that dream. Think of her as a “mother hen” when you need her. Diane will keep you informed throughout the process and will share her experience in selecting lighting, floor coverings, appliances, etc. For Diane, there is no such thing as a “dumb” question. Terry & Diane communicate so well and often with home owners during the building process that the professional relationship often evolves into ongoing friendships enduring long after the project is finished. They deeply appreciate the loyalty and support of their homeowners and are proud to be able to say:
