We are loving our home. Kudos to your company for a job well done. It was a pleasure to know the people who worked for you who had such pride in doing their jobs. Thanks so much!

Maggie & Rob R.

It has been a real pleasure working closely with you during the construction of our new home. The experience was surprisingly enjoyable and the results were outstanding. We are truly enjoying our new home. We constantly receive compliments on the workmanship and uniqueness of it. We were so impressed with the way you accommodated our needs through the building stages. You made the building process easy to deal with and “hassle-free”. We also would like to commend you and your staff on the efficiency and organization that was displayed throughout the construction. Special mention should be given to all your contractors for the professionalism and expertise that they have shown. Another very important factor was the follow-up by you and your staff which occurred after the completion of our new home. It is reassuring to know that the follow-up you’ve shown is a sign of your pride and professionalism. It was truly a pleasure to have the opportunity to work together on our house. Many thanks to you and your staff.

Mike & Lori S.

Our thanks for a job well done. Throughout the project, We were pleased with the professional work done by all the tradesmen who were involved. The quality of the total job is outstanding, and we appreciate the fine construction that was done for us.

The experience of Kellett shows in how beautifully our kitchen looks considering the indecisiveness I displayed whenever a critical decision was required. Everyone was very good at walking me through it. This skill born of experience was also apparent when problems arose. They were handled immediately and effectively, if possible, by the persons on site, without waiting. The result is a wonderfully functional kitchen that is lovely to look at. (All managed while working around our determination to change as little as possible.) So….thank you all for everything …it is greatly appreciated.

Mr. and Mrs. R.

We haven’t been home long enough to “bond” to our new space, but we are both very pleased with the result. We’ve had lots of company too and all are amazed at the transformation, especially our children. Your attention to detail is much appreciated particularly in the wrapping up of all the loose ends that are inevitable with any project. In talking to friends the other day we mentioned that Kellett had just finished remodeling our home. They said “Kellett? They’re the best!” I have to agree. I ought to have the window treatments & pictures hung by Christmas. You’re welcome to take photos any time.

Virginia B.

Thanks once again for the great ideas and work your wonderful guys did to update our family room. And yes, Heidi has helped me to make everything look beautiful.


I wanted to take a moment to express our pleasure with the lower level project you executed for us this past summer. From start to finish, your firm and all your subcontractors couldn’t have been more professional or enjoyable to work with. We are very happy with the finished product and thoroughly enjoyed working and all of the people at Kellett Construction Company.

George and Susan M.

Just a note to thank you for our gorgeous new home. – Thanks to you. Your personal attention and constant communication helped to keep the past months as stress-free as possible.

Mr. and Mrs. M.

I wouldn’t even consider another builder, each and every time has been a positive experience. Thanks again.

Suzanne & Averill T.

I think you know how pleased we are with the gathering room and front facade. Can't begin to tell you how many compliments we have received on the new look. Strangers stop to take pictures! We have enjoyed working with Kellett Construction Company. Eddie was always responsive to concerns and requests. His work is exceptional. Thanks to all of you for making a very disruptive project tolerable throughout the process.


I am writing to extend our appreciation for the fine job on our sun porch renovation. We are absolutely thrilled with the way it turned out. I know it was on the small scale for your company, so we are thankful that you were able to do it. I also want to tell you that we were very impressed with each and every contract trade that was involved. Each trade was really a class act. People really are impressed with how it no longer looks like an add-on porch but an integral part of the main house. Anyway, we want to extend our appreciation to you for a job well done.
Thanks again.

Mr. and Mrs. R.

We would like to thank you for building our new home. We have been extremely happy with all aspects of the home and certainly want to thank you for the high-quality workmanship which is evident throughout. It was a pleasure working with you, and I know the great pride and concern which you showed in all aspects of the construction. Perhaps best of all, the home was built on time and on budget, and that is certainly a lot to say in this day! Again, thank you for your outstanding work.
Very truly yours,

Thomas R.

We adore your house! We have admired it for some time. We are presently considering purchasing an older home in a nearby suburb which would require considerable renovation.
Before we buy however, we must factor in the cost of the renovation. Therefore we wondered if you would be kind enough to give us the name of the company that renovated your home.
Would you please leave the name in the attached envelope. Thank you so much!

Mark & Karen N.

Your team is extremely capable and has earned our trust; truly an unbeatable combination.

Carolyn and Mike M.

We feel so fortunate to have such a beautiful home thanks to the patience, professionalism and dedication of all people involved in 6072.

Mr. and Mrs. B.

Thanks for the nice compliment. We’re crazy about our home, too.
Redesigning and rebuilding a house that was our home since 1972, for me, was one of the most creative and rewarding experiences of a lifetime. Decorating the finished product has been equally pleasurable for Sue. The entire project, which is almost 100% finished, but not quite, has been a lot of fun. Although we never intended to create a show place, I think we have. The Kellett Construction Company of Bloomfield Hills was our general contractor. The Kellett people are simply the very best and most honest folks around. They specialize in makeovers. When you do a deal with Kellett, you don’t need a contract. You can do it on a hand shake.

Mr. S.

I would like to take this opportunity to let you know how much we are enjoying our home and how pleased we are with the overall quality. I am also pleased that you have promptly and efficiently handled any warranty issues that have arisen, which shows that you stand firmly behind your end product.

Edward M.

I wanted to let you know what a pleasure it has been to work with your crews on the M house this year. I found each person that I came in contact with to be competent, friendly, respectful and flexible.

Heidi P.

Just wanted to take this opportunity to thank each of you for the great job that was done at our home. The job seemed to take on a life of its own, but certainly has turned out to be worth the effort. I’m sure that working on a home that is occupied is more difficult than building a new one with no one around during the construction, but your people were great about it and very considerate of my wife who for the most part didn’t have any place to go most of the time. At least I could escape!
Again, many thanks. I’m sure we will be talking.


To the staff of Kellett Construction
A huge "thank you" to everyone at Kellett and to all their subcontractors who worked on the renovation of our house. Everyone did an excellent job. An extra-special thank you to Chris and to Eddie – they are the best! We will be recommending all of you to family, friends and neighbors who may be interested in either remodeling or new construction.
