In the past three years working with Mr. Maheu, he has always had a very positive work ethic and has proven to be a capable builder providing quality workmanship. Mr. Maheu conducts himself very professionally and is knowledgeable of the construction processes and building codes.
As an inspector, he has always shown me respect and has been quick to answer any questions that I've asked. Mr. Maheu is a pleasure to work with.
01.27.14 Scott Wilson, Codes Official, City of Sweetwater
Very professional. He has been involved in 5 projects inside the city and all have been done professionally with great attention to detail and construction practices and codes. Very timely in his work and will do what he says in a timely manner. Great contractor, wish there were more like him. Robin has a vast knowledge of construction and the industry as a whole, a valuable asset to the field.
01.26.14 Michael K. Dozier
Robin's building of our house was very professional, had a high standard of quality, and fantastic communications. Robin Maheu goes above and beyond to build at a high standard to meet and exceed building codes. He's proud of his work and rightly so.

Building with Venture Builders has been extremely stress free; and, actually a very pleasant experience. Robin's experience, attention to detail, and extensive communication with us has meant that everything has gone smoothly and without drama.
Venture builders holds subcontractors to very high performance standards. Anything that isn't done to Venture's standards has to be redone. Poor work is not accepted.
Robin Maheu and his crew are extremely experienced at what they do. Each phase of construction is discussed among the crew, options are presented to us, suggestions on their part are made, and then we are allowed to decide how to proceed. Venture Builders engages us continuously in the construction of the house. They make us feel like we are part of the team that is building our dream home.
When you walk thru the construction site during all the phases of the building, there is one thing that really catches your eye. The attention to detail. The house is true! Everything is measured and re-measured. Doors are plumbed and balanced. Corners are correct. Joints are perfect. There is no rush. Everything is done in it's own time and done right.
Venture Builders builds with pride, old school craftsmanship, and modern technology. You will be extremely pleased with the end product and the experience.
05.09.12 Robert, Dianne, Aaron, and Preston Clark
You built our home in Farmington, Ct in 1992. We moved to Florida in 2005. Every time we think about purchasing land and building I think of what a wonderful builder you are. We wish we were still close so you could build our next house.
02.03.11 Jessica Morgan, City Recorder, City of Sweetwater
I hope I can adequately express my satisfaction with Robin Maheu and Venture Builders, LLC. They are professional, competent, and a pleasure to work with. Venture Builders far exceeded expectations in coordinating with the other contractors and meeting engineering standards to make the project successful and timely. Their finished work speaks for itself.
We are pleased with the relationship Robin took the time to form with our city employees and administrators. He is an excellent communicator, which was especially beneficial to me in dealing with the grant funding aspect. I would highly recommend Venture Builders, LLC for any potential projects, particularly those involving government regulations and/or grant funding components.
12.13.11 Vicki Barnes, Gerald Moore & James Fultz, Sweetwater Housing
Our renovations have a lot of paperwork and requirements per HUD regulations. Mr. Maheu worked very hard to get the best job for us. He was the most conscientious superintendent of the job we have every had on one of our renovations. Mr. Maheu is very easy to work with and he was always checking to make sure the job was being completed as we wanted. We were very pleased with the finished renovation. All work was finished within a timely manner and all paperwork completed as needed.
Gerald, James, and I highly recommend Robin Maheu and Venture Builders without reservations.
My husband and I chose Robin as our builder after interviewing a very strong field of candidates and we can't imagine having made a better choice. Robin is a very strong communicator and has kept both my husband, who is working in China, and me informed and in the loop every step fo the way. When choices need to be made, Robin clearly communicates the options, the pros and cons, and the possibilities based on his extensive background and knowledge. He is also very good at explaining everything and anything regarding the construction process. Robin so clearly takes great joy in what he does, that it is a joyful process for the client too.
I very much appreciate that Robin is also a "client advocate". By this, I mean that he works only with a roster of quality and proven suppliers and contractors and he is also able to keep them in budget range. He listens carefully and takes the client's point of view and budget concerns into account at all times. Robin is very dedicated to taking care of his clients.
In walking through my future home, I can see Robin's hand everywhere. There are so many details that I can already tell are finely crafted and so many points I can see that have been very carefully thought through. I feel that I will not only get to live in a supremely build home, but one that is also a work of art.
05.18.09 R.E Layher, Pigeon Forge Productions, Inc.
Mr. Maheu contracted with Pigeon Forge Productions, Inc. for a renovation project at the Smoky Mountain Jubilee Theater during the spring of 2009. The job required a tremendous amount of coordination within a very short time frame and everyone associated with the project was extremely satisfied with Mr. Maheu's professionalism, communication skills, and ability to locate the appropriate subcontracting personnel to complete the project within the very difficult time frame required by our company to open the facility on schedule. I would highly recommend Mr. Maheu and his organization for any contracting needs of which Mr. Maheu would feel qualified.
06.10.09 William Andrews, Architect, AIA
As an architect specializing in the design of high end custom homes, I have had the opportunity to work with many quality builders during the past eighteen years. Over time a few superior contractors have distinquished themselves above the rest. Robin Maheu is definitely among them.
As a contractor, Robin Maheu is at the very top of his profession, and working with him gives me the utmost peace of mind. Even on the most complicated of projects Robin follows the plans with extreme attention to detail, and when quality is the greatest concern I would give him my highest recommendation. Working with Robin has been both a professional privilege and pleasure.
01.24.05 Frank A. March
I believe Robin Maheu has been the key factor in the relatively smooth progress we have seen to date. As I am sure you are aware, a job with "multiple masters" is one of the most difficult to do well. Robin has done an excellent job of satisfying our requirements while at the same time maintaining good relations with the employees, suppliers, and subcontractors on the job. He does an excellent job of communication with us, which is no small matter when we are 500 miles away.
We feel fortunate to have Robin and Hickory Construction for this project.
I have worked with Mr. Robin Maheu, project manager for Hickory Construction, for the past 18 months as he remodeled my home. During that time, I found Mr. Maheu to be organized, efficient, punctual and very trustworthy. In fact, I entrusted Mr. Maheu with a key to my home while he worked on the project.
On a personal level, I believe Mr. Maheu to be forward thinking and remarkably attuned to the big picture. I have no hesitation in asking him to do work that requires confidentiality. He is jovial and easy going and it's been a pleasure working with him.
I would highly recommend Mr. Maheu as a person and as a professional.
10.15.03 Beccie King
Robin Maheu was the project manager during the two year construction phase of our house built by Hickory Construction. Since I have absolutely nothing negative to say, may I just outline some of the positive attributes of Robin's work that I personally appreciated.
Robin set the tone at the work site. I never heard a foul, negative, or disrespectful work. I heard laughing, singing, and whistling instead.
Robin never criticized. Instead, he made sound rounds, complimented workers and asked what he could do to help or facilitate, or he made suggestions if something needed correcting.
EVERYONE who visited our house during the construction commented on the cleanliness of the work site. We never saw trash or construction debris lying around at the end of the work day.
Robin always showed the utmost respect to us the owners by referring to us by our titles, Mr. and Mrs., and by referring to the hours as "Mr. and Mrs. King's home." Robin was never too busy to give us his undivided attention, and yet he knew what every worker was doing while he was with us.
Robin instilled in all the workmen and women respect for the site itself as well as the house. There was never any litter left laying around and people were respectful to the beauty of the property.
Robin was outstanding in working all the angles to get the best work and product for the least cost.
Robin added a lot of extra conveniences overlooked by the architects: thermostats of the hot water heaters at the point of use locations; he excavated a larger area in the basement that has proved beyond value; many times he referred us to specialists he knew could solve problems architects didn't have a solution for (lighting of the lantern).
Robin accommodated any class visits by architectural students.
Even after we moved in, Robin continually asked what he could do for us until we got all the fine details completed.
When ordering a new batch of mortar for the brick, Robin realized the first order was the wrong color. He had a meeting with us, told us forthrightly a mistake had been made, and Hickory was willing to take down all the brick and put it back with the right color mortar.
During the entire construction process there was never any need to "check up" on the progress, because Robin caught every problem and corrected it.
Robin's standard was "perfect" and he accepted no less from the people he employed.
Robin saved us more money than his services cost us.
It is my pleasure to recommend Robin with 100% confidence.
11.25.03 Rufus King
Robin, although, Beccie has written you a note, I wanted to personally thank you and the Hickory team for an outstanding accomplishment. Although there were a large number of people involved, you were the person that made it happen. We appreciated the professionalism and your dedication to the day-to-day discipline to insure it was built within all the constraints of pleasing both the Kings and in this case the architects. Given the complexity of the house design, we really appreciated the way you were able to oversee the construction in building the ultimate product, a house that we are really proud of and one in which we could not be happier to live in.
Beccie and I were both impressed in the way you treated the house site and project site with such respect. I have never been around a construction site that was as clean as this one. You set the standard and expectations with the work crews that resulted in superior results.
01.24.00 Clyde C. Blalock, President, C&B Construction, Inc.
I have been an acquaintance of Mr. Maheu for approximately 8 years. I have had the opportunity to work with him in the construction business as well as knowing him personally. Mr. Maheu in my opinion is a very outstanding person with very high moral and ethical standards.
01.25.00 David F. Fardon
We have known Robin Maheu, since the fall of 1997. For nearly one year, Mr. Maheu supervised extensive renovations of our home and grounds. For several months, we had almost daily contact with him. We trusted in him with entry to and the care of our home and its contents. We found him, always, to be entirely honest and reliable. We have recommended his work and his character to others and have no hesitancy in doing so now.
01.31.00 Chuck Alexander, Co-Owner, Hickory Construction
Robin Maheu has worked with out company for 2-1/2 years as site superintendent. During that time he has managed 4 different projects with a cumulative value over 5 million dollars.
Robin consistently receives exceptional scores on our company evaluation and is liked and respected by his peers. His technical knowledge, management skills and love of his work make him a valuable part of our company, and always a candidate to lead our most important and difficult jobs.
Our customers have high praise for him as do our vendors and subcontractors. This praise arises from his ability to treat everyone honestly, fairly and consistently.
Most important, Robin takes extra time to train and encourage our less experienced employees, both on the job and personally.
We are delighted to have Robin as part of our company and look forward to years of happy customers and successful projects together.
11.06.92 Robert J. and Dianne C. Clark
The thought of constructing our first home stirred a range of emotions, anticipation, excitement, fear and uncertainty. How could two people with little or no experience in any of the building trades successfully complete such a massive project?
Enter Robin Maheu, builder extraordinaire. You radiated confidence from our initial meeting. This was complemented by a warm conversational personality which you and your employees displayed throughout the building project. We especially appreciated the way our questions were thoroughly answered. We knew exactly how our home would be constructed and at what cost. Every detail was spelled out clearly and accurately. You took the work out of our hands and the worry off of our minds.
We are very pleased with out new home. As we look back we have only fond memories of working together with you. We thank you and your associates for making the building of our first home such a memorable one. We have no hesitancy in recommending you to others who may inquire. As promised you delivered a quality home at a great price and oh what added joy we had in moving in on time, exactly as scheduled!
Yes it was a business relationship, but we felt as though we had a friend on the job working with us and for us. You won our trust, you earned our respect. Thanks again Robin, for a job well done!
01.02.91 Roger Poulin
My wife Nancy and I contracted with Maheu Builders, Inc. on September, 1991 for the construction of a 2300 s.f. Colonial house in Bristol Ct. At the time, our intention was to purchase a modular home from the builder, but through consultation with Robin and his intelligent floor plan revisions, we decide to go "stick built" for less cost than a modular.
On September 19th, our lot was cleared (the day after closing) and construction began. Two houses in our neighborhood had at least a two month head start on construction. Within 75 days, we not only were further along than the two other houses under construction, but were within two weeks of total project completion and occupancy.
Thoroughly pleased with the accruracy of Robin's construction schedule, quality of construction and his ability to keep the project within our financial guidelines. I would gladly serve as a reference for anyone contemplating the construction of a single family home. Robin's years of experience as a builder were evident at every phase of planning and construction
