What about some of our recently completed projects?
COMPLETED – Dr. Rob and Dr. Meryl wanted additional space for their family get togethers, so they decided to have their basement finished. Their beautiful farm is located off 169 in Woodford County.
COMPLETED – Ed with AAA Bypass Storage runs a very successful self storage facility in Georgetown, KY. The only problem was that he had the majority of his space rented. Solution? Let UBI/CMA construct a 27,000 sq ft addition to his facility. He’s now up and running with his expanded facilities.
COMPLETED – Dr. John and Susan priced their home with a number of builders but did not feel like they were getting enough home for their money. They came by our office and we talked about what they wanted and the reasonable costs to expect. UBI/CMA received the contract and the Greenes worked with us to create a beautiful functional home on their Jacks Creek property in Fayette County outside Lexington.
COMPLETED – Jerry and Jeanne Clotfelter decided to build their eventual retirement home and move from Lexington to a large wooded lot in Lawrenceburg. They were really concerned about getting the build right because their home is also the center for their business and a future home for their mother-in-law. Jerry sought some bids from local contractors but was not impressed with what he received. We had several meetings with Jerry and Jeanne before they selected us as their preferred contractor. Energy efficiency was a hot button for the Clotfelters. They designed a spacious home but did not want a large utility bill to go with it. We installed geothermal heat and hot water, radiant heat in the basement floors integrated with the geothermal system, icynene insulation on the rafters…changing the building envelope from the ceiling to the roof, energy efficient Low E windows, instant hot water and much much more.
COMPLETED – Mohammed and Donna wanted to build their dream home on their farm off Jacks Creek Pike outside of Lexington. They wanted the look of a cozy log cabin in the woods but did not want to pay the typical $140 per sq ft for a log home package. It is very energy efficient and cost effective solution, yet it gives you an exact log home look and feel for half the price. Add your fireplace, wood stove and interior log siding and you have that log cabin you always wanted!
COMPLETED – Addition to the Grace Baptist Church in Frankfort KY. Believe it or not I built the original church with Henning and Henning Construction over 25 years ago. How time flies!
Pastor Lonnie Bennett was the Pastor 25 years ago and is the Pastor today. He saw one of our television commercials and gave us a call when they wanted a new drive through and vestibule on their beautiful church. Pastor Bennett was very active in helping us during the construction.
COMPLETED – David and Jody contacted us after they saw one of our TV commercials. They own a beautiful farm off Bybee Road outside of Winchester. David owns a successful engineering firm located in Winchester and wanted to be actively involved with the construction of their own dream home. They lived on the farm and like many of our clients were not sure if they should renovate their existing home or build a new home. We worked on a number of options for renovation of the old home and also construction of a new 6,000 sq ft home. After reviewing the proposal and numbers they decided on the new home route.
COMPLETED – Paul and Leann’s family is growing. They wanted to finish out their basement into a new multi-purpose room. Paul likes to play in a band so a small sound stage would be nice, a theatre system with surround sound was a must, a wet bar, an additional bathroom, more shelving and storage space, a new salt water aquarium, a decorative waterfall and a nice place for the kids to play were all requirements for our designers.The Turley’s solicited proposals from three local general contractors and UBI/CMA was selected. This selection was based on the best proposal. Paul said we were not the cheapest… but that he felt our proposed package was the most professional and was the best fit for his needs.
COMPLETED – Mark and Jackie wanted to remove an old brick patio and replace it with a new screened in porch, as well as repair multiple problems with their basement foundation. After submitting the successful proposal… UBI/CMA began the new design and construction!
COMPLETED – Tim and Amy came to one of our UBuildIt seminar and liked what they heard. The wanted to have control of their project but also wanted to save money over going the conventional route with a builder. Tim is a Vice President at Central Bank here in Lexington and is no stranger to many of the local builders. However, both Tim and Amy liked what they heard at our seminar and contracted with us to complete the build.
COMPLETED – Jeff started his Kentucky RIver home renovation with some pretty disappointing contractors. When he approached us, he wanted an honest contractor that could cost effectively build a sturdy and functional handicap ramp. With his wife in a wheelchair, and the house sitting 15 feet in the air, this was a bit of a challenge but a success!
COMPLETED – Mark and Glistina had a friend tell them about UBuildIt and CMA. They wanted to have control of their project but also wanted to save money over a traditional builder. Their dream home is located off Wades Mill Road in Winchester, KY.
COMPLETED – Shane and Amy Poynter always wanted to build their own home. Like most young couples they wanted to be actively involved and had the many of the skills to build a home but they also knew they needed a helping hand. Since Shane worked for the local fire department, he could devote much of his time off duty to working on their dream home.
COMPLETED – Brian and Melissa really enjoyed their home outside Georgetown, KY but they never liked opening their front door directly into the weather. A nice front porch to sit and relax was a dream. They also wanted to rework the interior floor plan of their house a bit to make it flow better. After finding UBuildIt on the internet, they met with us and decided we were the company to help them achieve their dreams.
COMPLETED – Tim built a 2,250 sq ft ne-story ranch style with walk-out side garages and full unfinished basement situated on a one acre wooded lot off Green Sentinel Drive.
COMPLETED – James and Maxine wanted a quiet place to come home to and relax after a hard days work. They bought a beautiful 10 acre parcel out in the Harrison County countryside and built a 3,700 sq ft “Jim Barna” log home. James is very hands on but was hesitant to take on the General Contracting role in addition to his full time job. In came UBuildIt to help James and Maxine’s dream home come true.
COMPLETED – Dr. Eric and Melanie’s 5,400 sq fl home is located in the Lakes At Equestrian Estates subdivision outside Lexington.
COMPLETED – Lance and Allyson built their 2,800 sq ft home in Hickman Creek Pointe in Jessamine County KY. They built their custom home with UBuildIt a few years ago, decided to move closer to Lexington and with their 62K in Instant Equity…they sold it at a nice profit
COMPLETED – The 4,800 sq ft new home of Randy and Kim is located in the small community of Nonesuch in Woodford County, KY.
COMPLETED – Sat and Myra’s home located in Stirling Estates outside Lexington, has 5,410 sq ft of finished living space featuring a large master bedroom suite with a whirlpool, jacuzzi steam shower, carrousel TV between master bedroom and great room, hardwood floors throughout, 5 bedrooms, 3 1/2 baths, loft, fireplace, 2 1/2 car garage and full length walk out finished basement with media room.
