We are truly grateful for the good people we've been able to work with over the years!


"I remember when I first started sketching a vision of our dream house on a napkin. I never dreamed of it being done. When I signed the last draw for Mary—I remember thinking—it can’t be done? Then, I got the first mortgage payments and I realized it was done! I truly enjoyed the process of “building a house.” Your attention to detail, ability to anticipate the next day and your polished interpersonal skills are what make you great! It feels good to be living here! Thank you Mike for making our home a home!"

Diane Mattens

"We want you to know how we feel about our new home. As Barry put it, ‘you’ve helped us realize a dream that will last the rest of our lives’. We know your gift to us has been an unrelenting commitment to excellence, to doing the worrying for us, and an incredible work ethic, spiced with humor. When people ask us who built our house and we tell them Mike Dettrich, they usually respond with something like: ‘He sure builds a fine house.’ Or ‘He is one of the best.’ We are thankful that we were able to have Mike Dettrich build our home. We know that he built it as if he were building it for himself."

Barry and Lisa Bjork Greenbank

"We have really enjoyed working with both of you the past year on building our dream home. We feel proud to tell everyone that Mike Dettrich is our contractor. Appreciate all of your support through the project."

Fred and Pat Strong

"Michael and Mary Dettrich constructed two structures for us-our 2300 square foot Craftsman style farmhouse and a 1000 square foot 'tankhouse"-guest cottage'. In both cases, the Dettrichs far exceeded our expectations. They lived up to their enviable reputation for attention to detail, cost effectiveness, outstanding workmanship and product knowledge. We recommend the Dettrichs as the very best Whidbey Island has to offer in the building profession."

John and Kathy Wilson

"Our experience with the building project was always very positive. We would recommend Mike Dettrich to anyone."

Joe and Sharon Beck

"Mike and Mary, We want you to know how much we appreciate all that you are doing for us to make our home building experience so special. The entire process has been fantastic because of your caring professionalism. You two are such a “class act”. We feel so fortunate to be working with you on this project that is so important to us. Thanks for making this so much fun!"
