Why does Greg Antonioli, our company President, love his job? Who wouldn’t love their job when they regularly receive notes, letters, emails, and voicemails like the ones sampled below?!

They just finished a major project for us. They are top notch in every way; responsive, thorough, easy to work with, and they have this wacky idea that a project in progress should be worked on until it is finished. They are not necessarily the low bidders, but I think you will be pleased with their work.

Dear Greg, Paul, Mike, Kim, et al.,

You are the most highly skilled and creative carpenters in the universe! Thank you!

As a little girl I can still remember my Dad yelling at contractors to get off his property – that their work was not up to his standard. So when it came time to do improvements on this house that has been in the family for four generations, only one company stood in my husband’s mind–Out of the Woods.

I trusted Out of the Woods because my husband has been in the construction business 16 years and has worked with many contractors – the only one he would allow to touch this house was Greg. My husband took me by to see the houses Greg worked on. I can tell you exactly where they are and even today the workmanship shines on them even though they were done 5 to 10 years ago.

I did not tell Greg what to do. I told him to use his own imagination and make it grand in memory of my father, and he did. When I saw how they did the front—I call it “tears of joy from heaven.” I highly recommend Out of the Woods if you want the highest quality workmanship achieved in a professional manner and service that continues long after the project is done.

Knowledgeable, constructive advice, attention to period architecture, and outstanding workmanship with great attention to detail by Out of the Woods Construction, has allowed us to display and enhance the beautiful features of our home, while maintaining a sound structure for years to come.

We were also greatly impressed by the fact the owner, Greg Antonioli, was always involved with the job, not just as a “front man”, there were long hours put in by a helpful and considerate crew, the company was considerate of the surrounding neighbors and the premises were always left neat at the end of each work day. Out of the Woods Construction does an outstanding job, taking pride in the integrity of their work, long after the project is completed.

Both as a subcontractor and a client of Out of the Woods, I've been very impressed with the workmanship and integrity of the company.

Out of the Woods did a great job on our addition, both in the quality of their work and in keeping to the agreed-upon timeframe and budget. The carpentry was excellent, including some very tricky joinery where the new and existing roof overhangs met. The subcontractors they supplied for roofing and laying floor tiles also did high quality work. When a problem did arise it was dealt with very quickly and effectively. We would happily work with Greg and his team again on any future projects.

Firstly, working with you and the crew was truly a collaborative experience. There was frequent and open exchange of ideas on many aspects of the design and ideas were offered by all parties involved. Once a design was agreed upon, the work commenced and finished pretty much on time. The fine craftsmanship involved is evident in the results.

Both jobs done were the closest to a pleasant experience one can have when undergoing rehab of an older home. It is evident that you approach you work with integrity and skill and that you look for the same qualities in your subcontractors and crew.

And I keep thinking about that first floor bathroom...maybe next year.

Hi Greg, it’s Wyn. I just wanted to thank you and your guys once again for the bookshelves. They look wonderful and I know that Dale is really going to like them. And you know once again it’s great working with you guys and you do wonderful things for our house and we really appreciate it. So thanks again. We are enjoying the new fireplace very much! Thanks again for your great work. You have been the artist of this house!

We are very pleased with the overall outcome and experience we had when working with Out of the Woods Construction. The entire crew was pleasant to work with from beginning to end, and it was always very easy to communicate with them. At no point were there any surprises or expenses that had not been agreed upon in advance. Our room addition was completed on time and budget and looks as if it were designed into the home from the beginning. We would definitely consider using Greg and his company again and would not hesitate recommending them to anyone else. In fact, we have already told some of our friends.

Out of the Woods did a fabulous job in terms of making the kitchen consistent with rest of house. They really read our needs in regards to the details and woodworking. When we have a dinner party, everyone gathers around the island and we can't get people out of the kitchen!

We finished a project with Out of the Woods in December, and couldn't be more pleased with the quality of work, the professionalism, and the regard for our space during the project. Make no mistake, you'll pay more for their work, but we felt it was worth every dime. They re-did a room, raised a roof in to a new bath.

We would love to get another quote on the existing bathroom. Yes, that's right, we just can't get enough of Paul.... Now that the new bath is so gorgeous we can't stand the original one!

When things go well, you know you’re dealing with a qualified professional. When things go well, but there’s a challenge which is handled professionally and honorably, you know you’re dealing with an exceptional professional. I just wanted you to know that David and I greatly respect and appreciate the way you’ve handled the episode of the too-small bathtub. We understand how things like this happen and value your approach to the solution. Know that we’ll continue to speak well of Out of the Woods.
