About Us


"For several years we have participated in the Parade of Homes here in Berrien County. Our goal was to see the homes, the ideas in them, and to assess the quality of the structure. We were immediately impressed with the quality of construction we saw in homes built by Powell Construction. It was a special bonus to learn that they were also Certified Green Builders. When we decided to build a new home, it was an easy decision for us to select Powell Construction as our contractor/builder.

In 2008 we began to work with Powell Construction on the design of our home. We contracted an architect to do most of the design work but were not able to afford to build the house that resulted. Powell Construction helped us "redesign" our home to make it affordable yet maintain the original feel of the design. Building began in April of 2008. From the very beginning, the staff at Powell Construction were friendly, respectful of our emotions, helpful, and appreciative. It was remarkable to me how often we were thanked for selecting them. Our home was completed quickly, built well, and everything is as we envisioned. Along the way suggestions were made by the Powell staff that enhanced our home's construction and contributed to our satisfaction. We now have a beautiful, well-built, efficient home. It is our particular experience that Powell Construction is a company with a high level of integrity that will stand by their work.

It is without reservation that we recommend Powell Construction. It is our sincere belief that there is no better builder/designer in Southwest Michigan."
