"We have recently had major remodeling done to our house in Clemmons West by DreamBuilt, Inc. Joe Thurmond completely remodeled 3 bath rooms & the kitchen.

We were very pleased with the final result of work done by Joe & his sub contractors. Overall cost was reasonable, with weekly bills supplied including detailed listing of labor and materials. Cost was a bargain when considering the high quality of workmanship & level of products used.

Joe's Christian work ethic is observable in his workmanship & final result. I would consider Joe to be a "perfectionist". We had no reservation about leaving him in charge of our house for several weeks while we were away.

Based on very high quality workmanship at a reasonable cost, we would highly recommend DreamBuilt for any job they would accept."

"Quality, attention to detail, perfection, and a fair price!
This is what you get from Joe Thurmond, owner of DreamBuilt, Inc.

We were planning to add a sunroom to our home
and had contacted several builders for estimates and plans.
We were most impressed with Joe,
and even though he did not offer the lowest price,
we knew from seeing his work elsewhere
that he would give us the finished product we were looking for.

From start to finish, Joe supervised his subcontractors, and in fact,performed many of the construction projects personally.

Joe is the "best", and you can't go wrong with him
if you're looking for quality construction by an honest, Christian builder.
We highly recommend DreamBuilt and Joe Thurmond."

"I've been doing this for over 20 years in this area,
and I come across very few builders
who put rebar in their concrete foundations like you do."

"Joe was our General Contractor when my wife and I built a new house on Lake Oconee (roughly 4500 square feet). I would highly recommend Joe to anyone for residential home construction.
I would have no reservations about hiring him again. I found Joe to be knowledgeable about all aspects of building
and his diligent pursuit of quality control was and is one of his most admirable assets."

Dear Joe,

Since we never dreamed that we would someday build a new home,
we were not prepared for the task. We approached the prospect of building
with reservations, having heard the building nightmares experienced by others.

You made it easy, thanks to your patience and guidance
in all phases of the building process, making suggestions
as to what would look nice based on your experience as a builder.

We knew that quality work was never in question, and our house certainly bears that out.
Your attention to detail is seen in every room.

We are enjoying our new home and would be pleased to have you show it
to any prospective client who would like to see your work.

I have built 2 custom built homes. My first experience was okay...the second custom experience was a nightmare and took almost 2 years.(The particular builder was misusing funds, etc) Our builder now, Joe Thurmond, "had us at 'hello' "...
Seriously, he's the most talented, thoughtful, honest, and organized builderwe have EVER met...he's truly awesome.

Our Dream Home

"In September and October of 2005, we decided to retire and move to North Carolina. We made several trips during that time to look for our future home. We saw many nice homes in Clemmons, Lewisville and Advance, but
when we saw 141 Laurens Court in Advance, built by DreamBuilt, Inc. (Joe Thurmond),we looked at each other and said, "THIS is what we have been looking for."

After we bought this home, we decided we wanted a screened in back porch,and who better to build it than Joe Thurmond, who has already made us very happy with our dream home. Joe built the porch we described.
Although it took longer than planned, we understood why. Joe sent the framing wood delivery back because it was less than perfect.He sent the door back because it was not perfect.

We have had nothing but great compliments on our home by family and friends who have visited us. Our son, who has a huge, expensive home in Maryland, continues to comment on how much nicer our home is because of the
first class fixtures, top of the line air conditioner, gas fireplace, and over all design of the house.

We even received compliments from the DirecTV installer, the telephone installer, the ADT installer, and our neighbor, who watched the house being built to perfection. All our neighbors have commented on what a wonderful job of landscaping -- plants and bushes around the house.

Yes, we are extremely happy with the quality of our home.Thank you, DreamBuilt, for our dream home."

"Joe contracted to build a home for a friend in the same community where my home is located.
Based on conversations I had with my friend and my own observation of his home, I can confidently say that Joe satisfied his obligation in an honorable, ethical, and compentent manner.

I have also observed other building projects in the surrounding area completed by Joe
and have been very impressed with his attention to detail in all that he does. I would recommend Joe as a building contractor to both stranger and friend alike without reservation."

It is just so gorgeous. You did a fabulous job on it, and on our other door too.

I just want you to know that we appreciate it, and we're just so thrilled with it. It's just wonderful.

If we need anything else again, we'll certainly call on you."

I was, and continue to be, completely satisfied with the quality of workmanship throughout the house.
I found Mr. Thurmond to be a highly competent and qualified contractor in addition to being a very honest and respectable individual. His high standard of ethics is always evident in his business relationships."
