  We met several builders who were ready to go, but after spending time with Peter Schneider, we knew we found the builder for us. There was a thoroughness and a feeling of competence that surpassed any of the other builders we spoke with.

We all worked together, developing the plans, exchanging ideas and as Peter recommended, taking the time to make the changes on paper rather than later during construction.

It's nice to know there are still competent, "Old World" style craftsmen out there who care about quality work.  All of the sub-contractors were experienced, professional and it was a true pleasure to work with them.

The entire project more than exceeded our expectations and we could not have been happier with the final result.

  Dear Peter,

Thank you for putting our minds at ease when it came to hiring a contractor.

From the beginning of the design to the finished project, there were no surprises. Your ideas gave us many great options for our addition. We were completely satisfied with your workmanship and your attention to detail.

Thank you for your total commitment to our home addition.

Best regards,

Dear Peter,

Steven & I can not thank you enough for the beautiful job you have done on renovating our home.

We were very concerned and anxious at the beginning of this project because we had heard the horror stories from our friends that had previously gone through building renovations. From our initial meeting right through the completion of the project, we are still amazed at how smoothly and efficiently every detail was handled.

We are grateful at the way the project was left each evening. We could always tell that someone took the time to tidy up the jobsite - our neighbors were very appreciative. Also, we would like to commend all the men that were on the job, they were also very considerate and helpful with all of our concerns and questions.

Thank you again for making our house dreams a reality!

Dear Peter,

Just a note to tell you again how pleased we are with our new home.

From the early design sessions with you and John to the final completion, we felt that we were treated with honest respect complete professionalism. Our almost daily contact with the "woodchucks" (John & Frank), and all the other subs gave us a feeling of trust and caring to get the job done right.

As you know, we thought enough of the work to refer a family member and would not hesitate to refer the public.

Most sincerely,

Phyllis & Dave K.

Dear Peter,

I hope this note finds you well. We have now been spending as
much time year-round in our (now 2+ year-old) house as we can. It is
perfect. It is tight in the worst weather, and trouble-free. Our
children and grandchildren can't wait to spend time with us there. The
house is, by all accounts, a a real asset to our community.

Thank you for your innovative planning, your attention to detail,
and your singularly personal service.

Hi Peter:

A great experience from beginning to end. From planning and tear down, through construction and final finishing, every aspect of the project was outstanding. Peter was flexible and helpful throughout the entire process, always there when needed, and simply a great guy. Likewise, all of the contractors that worked on the different phases shared the same high quality work ethic and professionalism as Peter and were always friendly and courteous. It's been about three years and we are still enjoying the room like it was completed yesterday.

Best regards,

Dear Peter:

Mike and I wanted to thank you so much for building our dream house on the lake! Our vision became reality thanks to you and your talented crew. The attention to detail and care you took in each aspect of the project is displayed in the end result - a home that we will cherish and love for many years to come.

Your involvement in the early planning stages was extremely beneficial in designing a home that fit our needs and our budget. I sincerely appreciate your sense of organization, your focus on the details and your solutions to any and all issues that arose. You came up with many alternatives and recommended products that our architect overlooked and as a result, we have a home that fits our needs today, and will require less maintenance in the future.

This home required several unique solutions and you, Frank and John were able to craft some beautiful creations: from the decorative trusses, to the specialized fireplace mantles, to the custom made banister and stair railings, and don't forget the one-of-a kind deck and Jacuzzi surround. This is but a small list of the areas where you made an impact on the end result. You are a true craftsman and the pride and care you take in your art is evident by the top quality home you have built.

We will always be thankful to you for helping make our dream come true.

Very fondly,

Mike and Cindy Smith

Dear future Schneider Custom Home Owner,

We have had the pleasure of living in our beautiful Schneider custom built home for a couple of years now and wanted to share our building experience with you.

While working with Peter, we always found him to be reliable, trustworthy and honest. He is a man who is respected, liked, and enjoyed by his peers. We visited many building suppliers during our design phase; the suppliers not only knew Peter, but also went out of their way to comment on the pleasure of working with him.

In Peter's profession, many subcontractors are needed for different parts of the project. We found that Peter's contractors were hand chosen and equally reliable. The quality of workmanship remained consistent throughout the building process.

Peter is deadline oriented. He lives up to and by the contract. Well after our home was completed, Peter was and still is a valuable resource and friend.


Mr. & Mrs. Neil T. Van Valkenburgh















I interviewed a lot of contractors. My biggest concerns in choosing a contractor/designer were making sure I'd get high quality work at a fair price, finding someone trustworthy, and finding someone fun and easy to work with. Peter met all of these requirements. He worked closely with me throughout my home remodeling, providing friendly guidance every step of the way. His workmanship was excellent, the bill held no surprises, and my home is absolutely beautiful! I highly recommend Peter Schneider.

Dear Peter,

Just wanted to tell you how happy Nancy and I are with our new bathroom.

From all these years we've known each other, I know how you prefer larger jobs over the smaller complicated ones. We were really pleased with the way you took charge and made all those suggestions to allow us to come up with all our preferences in such a small space. Especially when our decorator was specifying all those design elements that didn't fit our budget.

Your recommendations for product selections were invaluable and the craftsmanship of yourself and that of your crew were also pleasant results.

Thanks again for being there for us. I've known many contractors, both large and small, and I know that none of them could have produced the job that you did.
