Golden Rule Builders provided outstanding service from start to finish! It was very helpful to have "one-stop shopping" with in-house design help, architectural work, and construction. GRB was truly custom in that they... took a floor plan we gave them and turned it into our home. They listened to our preferences, and tried to accommodate us in every way. We highly recommend GRB!read more

We had our kitchen remodeled from "builder grade" to Gourmet Kitchen. We contemplated it for 3 years working with GRB off and on until the plan came together perfectly. It included taking out an entire wall and putting... in a hidden beam to open up the gathering space. This was 2009. Today, 2019, 10 years later, we are STILL so happy we remodeled with Golden Rule Builders. They are fantastic. If you're gonna do it, go ahead. Don't wait. You'll miss years of enjoyment. We're so glad we did. I must say.We continue to enjoy the Kitchen and we entertain large groups ~40+ people with great joy being had by all. Thanks, GRB, for 10 years of joy made possible by people like you. Still going strong.read more

I love working with Bethanny Dye at Golden Rule Builders. I'm a designer and I've worked with her on several kitchen and bath projects. Her ideas for room function are invaluable and she is a joy to work with!

Golden Rule did a great job of refurbishing our main floor powder room. New tile flooring, custom vanity cabinet, vessel sink, Kohler plumbing fixture and Toto toilet along with a new exhaust fan! Great people, ethical,... clean, dependable - it's worth paying a little more to gain piece of mind and a job well done!read more
