Allen and his team are a great group of people to work with. I’ve built 3 homes with Allen over the last 20 years and in each case, my experience was enjoyable, on budget and ultimately exactly what I wanted. Allen handled all aspects of the last home from obtaining permits, dealing with the subdivision of the land and made the entire process simple and easy. His team is honest and easy to work with. Bonnie was so patient with me, even when I changed my mind about the house plans 4-5 times during the process. I highly recommend Nicholls Construction and their team.

Mary & Justin:

Our parents owned a modular home and we were sold their quality and longevity. When it came time for us to build, we researched several companies. One (Foremost) was at a higher price than our budget would allow and their process seemed a little more involved than we wanted. Another (based in Harrisonburg) had a price within our budget, but ultimately when we walked through the model home for Nicholls Construction and met with Allen & his team, we were sold. We have never regretted that decision. Throughout the process, we felt like our home was the only one they were building; they became friends and we trusted them completely.

Bill & Bonnie:

Allen & I are old friends so when we decided to build our house, he was our first choice. We were already sold on the idea of a modular build because we didn’t want to go through the long, drawn out process associated with a stick built house. Dealing with Allen and his team was great; we looked at a few models, settled on what we wanted, handed them our list of changes & customizations and then moved in. It really was that simple and easy. The financial benefit was a bonus. Several years ago in our first home (also built by Nicholls Construction), we received a rather steep tax assessment bill. When we contested the amount, an assessor was sent to look at our home. He was amazed at the quality of our home and explained that they had arrived at the original tax amount not realizing the house was a modular home. We received a new, reduced bill. We’re very pleased that our home is as sturdy and solid as any house built from the ground up but with a lower cost, faster move-in time and the pleasure of working with Allen and his staff at Nicholls Construction.

Jim Coats - JA Home Services LLC:

Well it has now been 7 years since you built our house. We just wanted you and your entire crew to know how pleased we are with our house. Because of your quality workmanship and extraordinary customer relations our house has become our "HOME". The attention to detail like drains in our basement, oversized hvac and doors is so nice in the harsh winter extremes we get on the mountain. Our beefed up deck railings you had installed really came in handy when we had thousands of pounds of snow and ice. Our fireplace has been absolutely wonderful with wind chill in the negative 14's. All my neighbors envy our easy circular drive, especially the UPS man;)
