I have only known Marcus Smith of “Modern Structures” since October of 2011 when we first met to discuss building our new home. I retired in January and my wife and I decided to sell our home of 10 years in Knoxville and move back to the Middle Tennessee area.

I’d built one house in the past myself but this time I wanted a contractor I felt I could trust to build my home in a timely manner and Marcus met my requirements. We had our house plans that we thought would be perfect, but thank goodness Marcus suggested changes that made our perfect house even better.

We started the building process in October and moved in March, 2012. Considering this was winter months and bad weather, the process went better than I expected. Marcus was on top of the building process at all times and kept his subcontractors on track. Something else I’ve been please with is warranty service after completion.

In summary, I highly recommend Modern Structures for any future building projects you may have.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
