One of the most endearing elements of living on Whidbey Island is the small town community.

Professionals of all types call this beautiful place home. It is nice to know that reliable and quality services can be provided with the personal touches that island living provides.

We had a terrific experience with Joe, Adam, and the Sound Construction team. We appreciated their close collaboration throughout the building process. They both made and were receptive to suggestions. Their work not only resulted in a house we love but that guests always praise as warm and peaceful. Recently the house received a national award from Fine Home Building. However,  for us it was the close attention to details and amazing finish carpentry that makes us so grateful for having worked with them.

We have nothing but praise for Sound Construction. They worked with us to create a home for our retirement years, and their experience helped ensure that it was a home that met both our needs and our budget.

From start to finish, every team member and tradesman we interacted with treated us with professionalism, and respect for our concerns and opinions. We could not imagine building another home without Adam and Joe at the helm.We would wholeheartedly recommend Sound Construction to any prospective

Sound Construction not only met my building expectations...they greatly exceeded them. From the final design phase thru the actual construction, they offered helpful suggestions that added value and pizazz to the finished product! They took a beautiful architecturally designed home and turned it up a notch.

One of my neighbors brother, a structural engineer from California, walked thru the house during the framing phase. He told his sister (my neighbor) that it was one of the best designed and built homes he had ever seen. I give Sound Construction my highest 5 stars rating from start to finish. They were also outstanding in addressing any needed follow up after moving into the house.

Joe and Adam and their crew built our beach house on Mutiny Bay two years ago. It is a two-story 2,500 sq. ft. home right on the beach. We are very satisfied with the quality of the construction and we found Joe and Adam to be very good to work with.  They kept us informed of the progress of the project along the way and there were no big surprises. They have been also very responsive in taking care of the few minor details that have needed some attention after the project was completed.

In 2010, when we first moved to the Island and bought a cabin on the beach with the intention of adding a second story; we interviewed four Contractors, all who had been recommended to us. After a few phone calls, we quickly narrowed the list down to two. I called references on both and Sound without question, had the most glowing testimonials. My inner voice shouted at me to go with Sound. However, my friend and also our realtor convinced me to go with his relative, who had built many high-end homes on the Island. This turned out to be one of the biggest mistakes I’ve ever made. The final cost turned out to be almost 80% over what the Contractor’s estimate. Yep, you read it right. Suffice to say, it was a run-away disaster and this huge overage came right out of my retirement funds.

When two years later, we decided to add on a garage and apartment; there was no question who our Contractor was going to be – Sound Construction. No way would I make the same mistake again. Sound built our garage/apartment add-on in record time and right on budget.

A few years later, we decided to move and we bought an older house on a different part of the beach, knowing we would tear it down and build once again. Call us either stupid or courageous, but truth be told, this time we weren’t worried whatsoever. We knew we could count on Adam and Joe to build our new house.

The old house was torn down in late October of 2017 and we moved into our brand new 3500 square foot home on Mutiny Bay barely ten months later, in mid-August, 2018. Our house is absolutely beautiful and the final cost was very close to the original estimate and our budget.

Our punch list was surprisingly minimal and Sound completed this ambitious project right on time. Once again, we are extremely grateful to Adam and Joe and the great crew at Sound. If you are thinking of building or remodeling, hiring Sound as your Contractor is an absolute no-brainer. Adam and Joe, are gentlemen of the highest integrity – total straight-shooters, not to mention among the nicest guys around. They really care about building you the home of your dreams. And the Sound crew members as well as the Sound subs are all top-notch.

My advice is run, don’t walk to hire Sound Construction. It will be one of the best decisions you’ll ever make. I only wish we had hired them the first time around. If we can answer any questions or show you around our beautiful new home, it would be our great pleasure to do so.
