"I can honestly say that the home buying process and the purchase of a quality home was truly an all-around great experience and completely stress free with Sky Lake Construction."
I purchased my home from Skylake in Nov 2016. I was very pleased with the construction quality, and the way
they listened to my needs. They get a big 10 from me.
"Sky Lake made it very easy to communicate, definitely the best experience we have ever had buying a house.
We have, and would, recommend building with them to anyone."
