Bob is extremely thorough in both the work to be done and the planning process – both prior to the project and the inevitable decisions to be made throughout the course of the project. When decisions need to be made by the homeowners, he does extensive research to develop multiple alternatives. He understands the homeowner’s perspective offering tiered alternatives ranging from good enough to high end. He understands there are times to curb costs and go for good enough. There are other times when aesthetics are a priority. All of his alternatives are going to deliver a quality end result. Once all the preliminary planning is complete, Bob provides a very detail contract spelling out exactly what work is to be delivered with a payment schedule. This gives the homeowner a solid sense of exactly when the cash on hand will be required at each step along the way – no surprises.
He is very clear in his description about the level of disruption and makes every effort to keep it to a minimum. For every job he has done at our home, he creates a barrier between the construction zones and the rest of the house – at times requiring the construction of temporary walls with working doors. He is extremely conscientious about maintaining a clean site. This was very important both within our home and for our neighbors, too.
We are extremely pleased with the overall process and especially with the end result. When we do our next home remodeling project, Bob will be the one we call!

As we hope you know, we couldn’t be more pleased with the way the house turned out. We may never be able to completely express our gratitude for your willingness to take on all the revisions that we asked you to make, as well as your patience and support as we worked as we worked all the decisions that needed to be made. Your combination of work ethic, integrity and craftsmanship is a rare find and we consider ourselves so fortunate to have had you working with us on our home.
Thank you for a job well done!

What can I say. Three projects, three great results. It was a pleasure working with you again. The new “Lakeview” room is stunning and the new front porch changes the entire character of the house. It warms it up and invites people in. The perfect place to sit and just look out over the front garden. Your workmanship continues to impress everyone who stops by. I can’t wait for project number four. As always, you’ll be the person I call. I mean, why mess with a good thing?
Bob, I am writing this letter to express our appreciation for the high quality (and responsiveness) of your work.
Before we found you, we used two different contractors/carpenters for the first two additions to our house. Both of these experiences were painful. These contractors were examples of what consumers dread – they habitually complained about losing money, they frequently took short cuts and they were very late in completing the work (the second contractor actually took almost two years to complete his project).
Suffice it to say that Suzy and I were exasperated and angry and would never hire either of these two again. Next on the agenda was a smaller project – renovation of the old house basement and construction of a laundry room. Randomly, Suzy saw your add in the yellow pages and called. We hired you and the rest, as they say, is history. You excelled in the project and we’ve used you exclusively ever since.
I don’t think that I can remember all the work you’ve done for us, but let me list the major projects.
- Renovation of the living room and dining room
- Construction of a stand-alone 3-car garage (with a second floor)
- Construction of the backyard deck and reconstruction of the other outside porches
- Design and construction of the 3rd addition (basement, 1st floor, 2nd floor and attic)
- Renovation of the new house basement
- Renovation of the den, kitchen and family room
We enjoyed working with you on all of these projects – and you completed them on a timely basis. But, most importantly, we value the quality of your work. It is exceptional!
In fact, you’ve spoiled Suzy. When she has a new project, she doesn’t even bother to get other bids. She simply calls and asks when you can schedule the work.
Bob, I would recommend you to any prospective customer. Our experiences with our first two contractors and stories that I hear from friends have convinced me that contractors like you (who care very much) are hard to find.
You were truly a pleasure to deal with on our last project. We have complete confidence in your contracting skills. We feel you are a true craftsman who will not compromise and that is why we always recommend your company without hesitation. Your work habits were courteous and respectful of our family and the end result was above expectations. We look forward to working with you on our addition next year.
Curt and Tara Braun
We just wanted to say “Thanks” for all of your hard work and expertise with our addition. We love our “new” home! Stop by and see the finished project.
Linda and Joe Cherney
The room looks great and I appreciate your professionalism and excellent workmanship. I look forward to working with you again.
We can’t say enough about Bob Ohle and Brookhill Builders. Bob worked with us right from the start, helping us to understand and reach the desired goals for our new kitchen and bathroom projects. The projects were completed ahead of schedule, and we can’t say enough about the quality workmanship and attention to detail. Bonnie and I highly recommend Brookhill Builders.
Bonnie and Bill Moore
We wanted you to know that our experience with you has spoiled us – we now have the inevitably disappointed expectation that all contractors will be as conscientious and reliable as you were.
Joe & I both actively brag to colleagues and friends about what a great job you did and how well the house project went. As we’ve said, we’d readily provide a glowing reference for any prospective customers.
For anyone looking a true craftsman, Bob Ohle is fantastic. He plans, manages, and communicates about the project as well as he builds.
What first struck us about Bob when we met him 16 yrs ago is how thorough he is – from the beginning when he scopes the job to understand what he’s dealing with, to explaining the situation, to presenting alternatives. He was leagues beyond the other contractors who bid that job in the time he took to understand the situation and objectives, the level of questions he asked etc.
And he’s highly conscious and conscientious regarding just about every detail – these projects are a lot of work for you as well as him. With Bob, there’s no “I wish I would have known that…” – he informs you so you can determine how you want things handled. When he makes assumptions on choices, he calls them out, and explains alternatives.
Bob seeks out knowledge about new energy saving technology and products both to comply with new code requirements, but also to provide options for a given situation. Including the pros and cons of each. Bob takes care to produce high quality work – square corners, perfect alignment, careful painting, the works. It starts when he says it will, and gets done on-time too.
Thanks again, and best wishes!

Judy and I want to thank you for doing such a great job in building our screened porch. It was a pleasure dealing with you, with you doing all the things necessary to get the porch done on time, within budget, and with excellent workmanship. All without the aggravation one was told to expect when dealing with contractors.
I am happy to recommend you without reservation to those who want to build, or remodel.
Calvin A. Saravis
We are so pleased with our Kitchen. I recommend you to everyone. I have heard so many horror stories of remodeling and building that I think you are a rare gem!
Lisa and Scott Whalley
We have hired Brookhill Builders for two remodeling jobs on our house. The second job was the most extensive with Brookhill Builders replacing all our windows and doors, residing the house with fiber cement siding and rebuilding our deck with Trex decking. We were so impressed with Bob’s professionalism and honesty on the first job that we hired him for our second job without obtaining quotes from other contractors.
Bob is meticulous with his work and makes sure the job gets done right the first time. He has fixed many of our house’s deficiencies and tackled each problem encountered with great ideas on how to properly get the job done right. Our deck is so sturdy that it should last our lifetime.
I would highly recommend Brookhill Builders Inc. to my friends and family without hesitation. They do quality work at fair prices without cutting corners.
