“I’ve worked with Lee Barker for the past several years. Both when he was working for other builders and now that he’s on his own. In our line of work, it’s rare to work with builders that fully understand and grasp the intricacies of building science in the way that Lee does. Lee is both an innovative builder and a thoughtful builder, always considering sustainability in how he builds his homes. In addition to his depth and breadth of knowledge, Lee is intensely committed to doing the right thing, both in life and in building. He’s a quality builder and if there were a world of Lee Barker’s out there building homes, we’d all be better off.”
