Our experience working with Zirbel Construction was positive from the beginning of our project to its completion.  Fritz listened to our plans for our cabin and without changing our vision he added so many great improvements.  He and his crew were very easy to work with and we are very happy with our cabin and would not change a thing.

When we met Fritz Zirbel, we didn’t know he was a contractor; and when we found out he was, we kept him in mind for building our future dream lake home.  He seemed very knowledgeable in the local lakes area industry and later proved that his many years of experience in the area is his greatest asset.  He was always able to find local talents to help build our home.  Fritz took genuine interest in our project and gave us lots of ideas along the way.  He incorporated plenty of local craftsmanship, materials, and even some pleasant surprises using his own talents.  He made our new home feel special and unique.

Fritz is also a good businessman.  He was good at sticking to a schedule, informing us of upcoming timelines that required our input, and keeping us informed about the progress or any delays in the project.  In addition, he met with our neighbors to inform them of any upcoming concerns or inconveniences that arise with construction.  Whether you are building a large home or have a smaller project in mind, we would recommend Fritz Zirbel Construction.
