CLIENTS

“Barry did little things along the way that were so charming.  He kept his eyes peeled for grace notes that would make the design ring true.  We’re in love with it all.  It’s exactly what we anticipated down to the last detail.  Actually it’s even better.”
Whisper Rock Client

“From the first day of design, through out the selections process and all through construction we were treated as if we were their only client.”
Desert Mountain Client

“Each day I would look forward to visiting the site to see what special things the carpenters and other trades had built for us.  I would stand in each room, as the home took shape, and imagine what the final result would be.  If I was unsure Barry would draw separate sketches (he did a lot of that) so I could get a clear focus and make plans.”
Sonoran Highlands Client

“I wanted to thank you for the wonderful experience of building our guest house.  Working with all of you was a pleasure and the guest house is magnificent.”

“For the last ten years Barry & Christy Smith of Casas del Oso have demonstrated their skills in financial matters through the highs & lows of economic times.  I have watched their company grow into a fine custom building company.  I have enormous respect for what they have accomplished.  If you have seen one of their homes then you will understand the level of creativity, talent, and commitment they have.”
