When I first conceived the idea for Water‘s Edge I wanted a project that would be as unique as the site on which it was to be built. I hired Don MacArthur with MMW Architects & Planners to help me develop the plan and to design the homes to be built at Waters Edge
When it came to selecting a builder, I was looking for someone that would give Water’s Edge the personal attention and care to detail that I felt it needed to truly become a one of a kind project. I considered most of Missoula’s premier builders and interviewed several of them, including Wade Hoyt. Wade and I had been friends for many years and I had worked with him on several projects that he had built for himself or other clients; however I had never had him build anything for me. After giving it a great deal of consideration I decided that Wade and Hoyt Homes would be the right fit for Water’s Edge, and now nearly two years into the planning and construction process it is patently clear that I made the right choice.
To say that I am pleased with the job that Hoyt Homes has done for Water’s Edge would be an enormous understatement. Wade and his professional staff have done everything I could have ever expected of them and so much more. Wade handled the construction of the homes that have been built to date at Waters Edge, which includes the exteriors of two duplex/style townhome buildings, finishing the interiors of two of these units for use as model homes (one side of each building), and installation of footings and utility connections for another two unit building.
Wade and his staff worked with the Architects, the interior designer and my wife and I to plan the homes, select materials and subcontractors that would meet our standards for quality and workmanship while at the same time getting the best prices possible for all of these services. During the construction process he provided daily, personal on/site attention to every detail that went into making the homes at Waters Edge truly a work of art. The attention to detail and the craftsmanship are as fine as you will find anywhere in Missoula. Both models at Waters Edge were on the Parade of Homes (one in 2008 and the other in 2009) and received rave reviews by all that attended. The Stoneybrook model won the “Craftsmanship” and “Memorable Decor” awards in 2009, a testament to the care and quality of workmanship Hoyt Homes, their staff and subcontractors put into these homes.
Wade also served as the general contractor for the site improvements which included all infrastructures for the first phase of Waters Edge, including streets, sewer, water, storm drainage and landscaping. He dealt with us the owners, the architect, the landscape architect, the engineer, two infrastructure contractors (one for the water main & services and another for the sewer services, streets, grading 65: storm drainage work) and the landscaping & irrigation contractors. All work was completed in a timely and professional manner without a hitch.
I am most pleased to say that Hoyt Homes are part of the Water’s Edge team and we look forward to an ongoing relationship with them as it continues to be built out over the next few years. I can highly recommend Wade and Hoyt Homes to anyone that is interested in getting a first class product at a fair price while working with a great group of honest, hardworking and truly caring people.
