Dan Johnson, Echo Point Construction, built our home in the late winter and spring of 2005 on Seacrest Drive, Lummi Island, WA. We were still employed full time 180 miles away and thus could review progress only occasionally.
Dan is a conscientious contractor who pays close attention to detail. He insists on a clean worksite. He inspects subcontractor's work daily. He stays within budget and when the occasional cost overrun looms, he discusses the problem and possible solutions prior to action.
Dan also made very timely suggestions on design changes which enhanced the look and function ability of our home. The construction process proceeded at a most efficient pace.
We are very lucky to have had Dan as our builder and recommend him highly!

We selected Dan Johnson from Echo Point Construction as our general contractor for a complete house remodel. While Dan was not the lowest bidder on our job, we felt that he was the builder that had our best interest in mind and that he would work with us by making practical suggestions on design & materials. Dan's knowledge of our site and exposures to wind, rain, & salt air was evidenced by use of stainless steel flashings & nails - something the other builders didn't even think of.
I was also impressed with Dan's relationships with subcontractors/suppliers. The ability to finish a job (on time & budget) is dependent on the ability to manage the project with those subcontractors. We could tell that satisfying Dan was a priority to these subs.
As this was a complete gut/tear down remodel there were unforeseen challenges and each time Dan was there with a logical solution that held true to our design, likes and budget. In fact even with these challenges, Dan & his crew delivered our home on time & budget.
One suggestion Dan made was loft spaces above our kid's closets - it's funny, but this little idea was a huge hit with our kids and is a real conversation point with friends - it's these little ideas that without adding much cost made our home unique rather than just another home.
As with any project we had our bumps along the way, but we always found Dan honest and willing to work with us to make the situation right.
We've recommended Dan to a number of friends and would certainly use Echo Point Construction again.
We were pleased with Dan's overseeing the tear down and new construction of our new home. He understood the project thoroughly, was concerned with the details and made very appropriate and helpful on-the-site changes.
His subcontractors were all good and Dan was able to keep them appropriately scheduled so that construction moved along without delays.
We are happy with our new home and would certainly use Dan again if we were to ever build another house.
Our hearty endorsement!
