When Pam and I started planning to build our dream home we asked a well respected family friend for recommendation for a general contractor in the area. He didn’t hesitate and said Shawn Buchanan of Buchanan Construction.  

We were glad we took his advice and hired Shawn Buchanan as our builder and it was a wonderful experience.  Shawn is not only an impressively talented contractor, showing much attention to detail, staying efficient, timely and within budget.  He is also a stellar individual.  You could not find a more honest, ethical and conscientious person who truly cares about his finished product and his clients.

Our house is the best possible testimony to Shawn.  We would happily recommend Buchanan Construction to all those considering having a custom home built. They will appreciate his knowledge and expertise.

Shawn Buchanan, of Buchanan Construction had been recommended to me a couple of years ago, when I was in need of a General Contractor.

I really appreciated the recommendation to contact Shawn.  He is professional, knowledgeable, courteous, on time, and especially communicates well with his clients.  He has kept me apprised of how the jobs are coming along, and coordinates well with his sub-contractors.  I appreciate all of these qualities about him, as it is not always easy to find a good contractor who does his job.  Shawn cares about his clients and his reputation, and I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking for a good General Contractor.

​Shawn Buchanan of Buchanan Construction is by far the best contractor we have ever dealt with. We have had 2 custom homes and  a large commercial office building built and each time it was a difficult and frustrating process. When my Dad's house burnt down we dreaded the rebuilding process but with Shawn it was a completely different experience.

Shawn was amazing to work with and made the process go so much smoother than we ever imagined. He is a man of integrity and always kept his word on what he was going to do and when. He pays very close attention to detail and always kept a close eye on what his subcontractors were doing. He always dealt with us, my elderly father and the insurance company in a patient and courteous manner. We were pleased to see at the end of each day the job site was left immaculate. My dad's neighbors who observed the progress daily were extremely impressed with Shawn from start to finish.

We could not have chosen a better General Contractor for our project and highly recommend him for any size or type of construction project.
