First, let me just say that if you are reading this and you want someone with outstanding attention to detail, forward thinking, easy to work with, and simply does what he says he will do... well Bob Gordon is the building contractor for you.
Several years ago I came up with the idea of building a 1,200 square foot car "Showroom" on the back of our existing garage along with a guest house on the second floor. It sounds simple but when my wife and I got to talking and working with Bob we effectively created my "Man Cave". Bob worked with us to plan, design and build this wonderful addition to our home.
A few highlights of this addition:
- 1,200 sq.ft. Car Show Room with heat/air, stereo system, storage room, deep sink and cabinets.
- 300sq.ft. glass enclosed Bar and Patio adjacent to the Show Room; all equipped with a custom fifties style diner bar and all the appliances for an outdoor Kitchen; ceiling fans, lighting and stereo speakers.
- On the second floor Bob helped us come up with a wonderful 3-room, "home away from home". It started with a really cool stairway leading to a beautiful Great Room with a custom designed entertainment center and large screen TV; a nice size Bedroom and closet and a custom designed Bathroom dressed out in black and white.
Obviously we could not have been more pleased with Bob Gordon and the quality of his work. Without Bob we could not have envisioned how great this home addition would turn out.
Fast forward to 2009 and my wife has been researching and dreaming up how to remodel her Kitchen. She talked to a lot of folks on the ideal appliances, flooring, cabinets, lighting and the list goes on. This was a major project and we did not hesitate to call Bob Gordon for his expertise to manage this Kitchen transformation. Bob just has a wonderful network of dependable plumbers, electricians, cabinet makers, trim carpenters, painters, hardwood floor install and finishers, roofers and on and on.
Well you guessed it, another HUGE SUCCESS for us, thanks again to BOB GORDON.
We highly recommend Bob for any custom additions or remodeling!!!

My husband was turning 50 and had ambitions to become a champion tri-athlete. Only problem was he never did much swimming. So we called Bob after checking his references, and he designed and built us a 500 sq.ft. state-of-the-art fitness training room that included an Endless Pool. We had never even seen anything like it! (Still have not.) Bob thought of ways to design it we never would have. He has amazing foresight. Once we got started, we became even gladder we called him. The whole experience was a pleasant one, Bob never left us wondering about cost, time, competency, safety, security, or anything else. Working with him not only brought the room beyond our dreams, but total peace of mind. And by the way, my husband, "carried the crown" of the Male 50 and up NC Champion for a time during the year the room was completed. Now he is working on his next goal of becoming the national male 55 and up champion.
Several neglected parts of our home are now in proper working order, thanks to Bob and his expertise. Plus, he built a large screened-in-patio that was once an open patio which we rarely used. This outdoor area includes a fireplace and Viking grill with an exhaust hood. After our work-outs, we enjoy a mosquito and rain-free environment to grill and relax in front of the open fire, with views of the Carolina sky from the 3 skylights.
Since then, we called on Bob to install a new roof when we needed one. From experience, we knew we could count on Bob to back up his work without any hassle or worry. He is there when called, no matter if it is to start a new project or to fine-tune one he already completed. That and death and taxes we can be sure of!
Thanks So Much Bob,
Yvette and Rick Parsons
When we began the journey to renovate our Myers Park house built in 1939, we interviewed over seven very high profile builders. Bob was the most straight forward, quality conscience and value based of all the builders we met. Our project took approximately 9 months to complete from architectural plans to move in date. It was a pleasure working with Bob on this journey. Bob's leadership, consistent communication and expertise allowed for our project to complete on time and on budget.
We are thrilled with our renovated home and would hire Bob again for our next project.

We moved into our 1980's home 11 years ago with young children and a lot of activities. As the kids entered into high school and college, our home was beginning to feel tired with the need for some updating, changes and repairs. Bob helped us walk through our home, make a list of the things we would like to do and develop a plan. He was thorough and detailed as the projects often happened on a multi-level basis. I especially appreciated: how he communicated with me on what to expect each day, that his crews showed up on time and that they cleaned up after themselves. Bob is knowledgeable and experienced when it comes to building, repairs and the time management of large and small projects. He is flexible, honest and trustworthy. When I was out of town, I knew I could keep the work going and that my home was safe and secure under Bob's care. It was a "turn key" experience in everything we had him do.

WE LOVE OUR NEW ROOM! From our first meeting with you 'til the project was finished, there were no surprises.
Your estimate was so thorough there were no add-on costs. Your timetable was accurate and the worksite left clean each day. Every sub-contractor you sent was very skilled in their work.
WHAT A GREAT EXPERIENCE!

We would like to take the time to say thank you one more time. In spite of all the rumors you hear about how miserable it is to re-model it was not for us! The time went by fast. You could always see progress and you kept us well informed. We are most impressed with your attention to detail. All of our friends also talk about the "add-on" money for unexpected problems, and they can't believe we had no "add-ons". We are thoroughly enjoying our "new" house!
With Great Admiration,
Clare, Curt & Hannah
Thanks for everything!
We are very pleased by your great work! Thanks for being so thorough and treating the work on our home as if you were doing your own. You were wonderful to work with.
