Shout Out
"I just have to say that LZL Construction can do anything a remodel requires. I sold a house last year to some buyers who wanted to change a few things. They asked me if I knew of a "high end contractor" whom they could work with. I referred them to our very own LZL construction. Well, little did I know what my clients REALLY wanted to do to the house or what LZL is REALLY capable of. Oh, my word! The house has been torn down to the studs and exterior walls. The gas that I thought was impossible to bring into the kitchen because it's on a concrete slab, was indeed put into place. No problem! There is nothing they can't do if a person has a budget for anything they want. My clients are soooo happy with the whole LZL team because Dennis is overseeing everything and keeping people on task. I knew they were good, but wow, they have exceeded any expectation I ever had for their ability to make lemonade out of lemons. They even have a crew to redo landscaping. This house is going to be a show stopper when they are finished. It is an extreme makeover for sure! Submitted by Gerry Eagle, Re/Max Northwest Realtor
