" We quickly discovered that building a house is a complex process including visionary and practical specialists like architects and engineers. And then there are the people who have to convert this vision into a real structure, which in itself requires its own type of problem solving as well as builder’s skills. We are very grateful to Vine House for delivering this for us with commitment, determination, consideration of our concerns and requirements, and skill. Their close team work with ourselves, our architects and the sub-contractors contributed to the success of our joint venture and the beautiful home we are fortunate to now live in. "
