"We had been looking to buy new construction in Lexington for several years but never found anything that we liked or felt was well-built or had features that we wanted. We knew of Rich and Dick Perry because they built homes for two of our friends. We finally found our dream home which is right out of House Beautiful. We watched as it was built and know that the level of construction is top notch. It is absolutely stunning and everyone who comes to the house comments on how gorgeous it is as well as on the exceptional craftsmanship. Rich and Dick are a great team. They did not scrimp on anything. All of the appliances and finishes are high end. All cabinetry is custom made by their own cabinet maker and is unique, including curved cabinets in the bathroom. Rich and Dick are responsive and stand behind their work at all times. It has been a pleasure working with them and we are delighted with our new home. "

"We have used Shaker Glen Construction on two separate home renovation projects. In both instances, Rich and his team were reliable, courteous, and extremely professional. We couldn't be happier with the work Shaker Glen did, and working with Rich was a completely positive experience. Both projects were completed on-schedule and precisely within budget, which can be attributed to Rich's honesty, dedication to high-standards, attention to detail, and totally open communication with us. The quality of the final product was amazing and we wouldn't think of going to anyone else for any future renovation needs."

"Dick and Rich Perry are the best builders we have ever worked with. Their attention to detail, years of experience and responsiveness to clients separates them from the rest. I can trust them to provide the absolute best product - even if it is not in their best financial interest - because they always want to provide the highest quality work.”

Dick and Rich built a quality home, which many years on still looks like new. We love the open, easy-going feel, the wide windows to the garden at the back. The understated quality of the materials and workmanship goes beyond commonplace flashy finishes which others use to sell at a premium. Dick stands behind the quality of his work, and we have used many of his contractors for additions and improvements over the years. They take pride in their work and it shows.

Rich and his team exceeded all of our expectations. Not only did they provide the highest level of craftsmanship but did an excellent job navigating the challenges of renovating such an old home. The team accomplished every item on our wish list all while maintaining the integrity of a classically built mid twentieth century home. From initial meetings through permitting and construction they worked efficiently and made a normally stressful process headache free. We feel so fortunate to have worked with Rich and wholeheartedly endorse his company.

We have used the Shaker Glen team for several projects (small and large) over the years, and Rich and his team have always been incredible to work with. The team is always very responsive and professional, and delivers excellent results. We live in a very old home, and Rich is creative in his approach to the work, while keeping the character and charm of an old home in mind. Rich provides thoughtful guidance and advice, backed by his broad experience working on many similar projects. For all these reasons, Shaker Glen is our contractor of choice and we highly recommend them for any project.

We asked Dick and Rich to build our custom home, and they requested to be involved from the very start - participating in the sessions with our architect so they could understand our design principles and vision. When the build began, they didn't treat it as just a "construction project," they understand the emotional importance a home has, and kept us involved every step of the way - validating our needs and understanding any changes we requested. Their quality, attention to detail and workmanship is outstanding, and they were always accessible whenever we had questions. We are so happy they helped us with our beautiful home and recommend them highly.
