In the spring of 2000 my wife (Dawn)
and I made the decision to embark on a long

Dawn and I on a Sunday afternoon in April and
surveyed the ‘progress’ on our project. By this time
the project was nine months into construction.
The chaos we walked over and through was beyond

project. I think more out of his human
compassion than business sense.
Gary Sorensen - General Contractors
began work in May of 2001. The project was
complete 90 days later. Gary brought
leadership to the project and restored the pride of
craftsmanship to the trades people and

and his team brought energy, innovation, creativity
and conviction to the project that Dawn and I had so

Sorensen as the builder of my house but also as my
