built our Bed & Breakfast in 1996. Ten
years later we are just as happy now as we were
then! Even not being here while most of
the building was going up was never a concern
with us, as Brian came highly recommended by
many people. Brian exceeded our
expectations in every way possible. We
were under a very specific time limit to get it
finished, and Brian completed it on time!
When we came up during the
building process we found Brian doing extras
above and beyond what we expected. If
there was a problem in the process, he took care
of it immediately. If you are considering
building a home, we highly recommend Brian, He
is conscientious, dependable and trustworthy."
Dean & Joan Douglas, Angel Fire
"I had two homes before
working with Brian. We heard good things about
him. So when we decided to build our retirement
home, he was the first person we talked to. We
went over our plans, set a price and he came
right in on the nose. We've been really happy.
He was always right there to help us out. It's
been a very nice relationship."

choice when we chose Brian for a contractor. He
did a fabulous job."

Brian's work, his follow through, his honesty.
He assured us the project would be on time and
on budget and that's what happened. I was told
by a property management company that they'd
never had a problem with one of Brian's homes.
That's a pretty powerful endorsement."
Dave McLaughlin, Oklahoma City
"We had an architect design our house. They
handed the plans to Brian, and I showed up to a
finished house 12 months later. It came
out just like we wanted it to look.
We have built several houses. I would rate
this our best experience. I would love for
him to build another!
We are very particular...we are not easy
going...everything came in on time.

"Brian Shuter built our home in Angel Fire in
1997, while we still lived in Albuquerque.
Since then, we have contracted with Brian and
his crew to add a deck, a garden shed, and more
recently a study, bathroom, storage area, 2-car
garage and a paved driveway. All of
Brian's construction has been carefully and
tastefully blended and integrated into the
original design. It is a great pleasure

crew. We are so pleased to own a very
maintenance-free home that is a joy to live in."
