First we would like to thank Carley Montgomery, of CDMI Construction, for her total dedication in orchestrating the best team of contractors that anyone could ask for, also for her ability to keep the job running smoothly and within budget. Before we started we had only two requests. First, as our house had been a footprint in the American Valley for over 130 years, we wanted the house to look exactly as it was before it burnt down. With the extraordinary talent of designer Michael Kroeker, who spent countless hours going over pictures, surveying what was left of the old house, and researching at the museum, the exact design of the house was masterfully reproduced. And our second request, if possible, we wanted all those working and supplying materials for the rebuilding to come from Plumas County. We credit the fact that we used almost all local contractors and suppliers and that our house was completed in a year to the day the house burnt down. We were so fortunate to have manager and and his skills talents of so many wonderful people to have thi*s beautiful home Completed in a year. Oran also did most all of the finish work in the house in such a beautiful original farmhouse style, it almost feels as though you stepped back a hundred years. Working alongside Oran was another amazing contractor, JD Blesse. JD was responsible for the ground-up construction of the house. The work that JD our wonderful neighbor, Oran Morrison, as the project contractor of our rebuilding. With his incredible eye for detail, for making the unthinkable happen, he was able to coordinate the did was as much artistic as it was construction, especially in fabricating the design of the roof to the original linesi which was totally custom and very time-consuming. In the end, he was able to capture the exact lines of the house and roof (all four gables). JD and his crew were there every day, from sunrise to sunset, until his job was done. It would be next to impossible to thank each person individually in this letter, but listed below are all the magnificent contractors, suppliers, and businesses that made this project happen. Without their hard work and expertise, we could have never gotten this house done in the time and quality that we have. Every single person listed below did such an outstanding job, they are all undeniably a professional in their own specialty. We would also like to thank all our neighbors and friends in Quincy who have been so supportive over this difficult year, iust by letting us know how much they care. And again, we want to thank the Quincy and Meadow Valley Fire Departments for their skills that saved many of the antiques and pictures we will be bringing into our new home. THANK YOU!
