Thompson Home Construction will build Boyne City up with 26 years of experience.

Owners Shari and John Thompson have variety of skills to put to work on just about any construction job.

“We do general contracting, building, remodeling and repairs,” said co-owner Shari Thompson. “Also, we do carpentry work. John (husband) has been a carpenter for 26 years but he’s been doing it for 33.”

“We started out in residential rough framing, but over the last 5 years it (has) necessitated us to move into trim work and repairs.”

Over the course of 26 years Shari and John have built over sixty houses and feel that there is an essential key to unlocking their success.  “One thing that we’ve really prided ourselves on is keeping our customers happy and treating them like individuals,” Shari said.

Shari believes Thompson Home Construction will impact Boyne City more than a few ways.  “As we get busier we will have to hire people in the area,” she said. “And, the type of work we do, restoration, will help the area look better with keeping houses structurally sound.”  Thompson Home Construction has had many satisfied customers, according to Shari, including themselves after they remodeled their own building.

In the past, they also helped renovate some commercial buildings.  “A couple years ago we did a 28,000 square foot remodeling in the Palace of Auburn Hills,” Shari said. “Lately, it has been a lot of windows and door replacement and siding replacement.”  Customer commitment and getting the job done are a few of the draws Thompson Home Construction will have when customers come to deciding which construction company they will contact, Shari said.

She said people have told her about how they waited all day for a plumber or contractor, and that is one thing Thompson Home Construction will never do.  “We’ve never had one person who was unhappy about the building experience,” she said. “We’ve always done a lot of houses for people and we’ve done some work for the Village of Charlevoix.”

They are located at the former Knights of Columbus Hall at 1170 Highway M-75 South.
