Waterfront Living
Considering a waterfront build? DeShano Companies has extensive experience in building water facing homes. We will help you design the perfect house to take advantage of your lot's unique views and elevation. Since most waterfront homes have two fronts, it is important to design the house to have appeal from both sides. Our drafting and design team will take each of these factors into consideration to help design your perfect home, cottage, or cabin.

More about Commercial Construction
"DeShano Construction has been the most professional team that I have worked with. I have tried other contractors, but no one else measures up to these guys. They handled the remodel of my house while I was a thousand miles away in Georgia and didn't miss a beat. They did such a good job I trusted them with the work on my parents home and our deer camp as well. They assign a professional supervisor for each job. It's nice to have one contact that handles all aspects of the work. And due to their size and leverage, they are usually cheaper than most of the local contractors in town. I highly recommend them and will use them again myself."

"We had DeShano Companies replace a wraparound porch and add a deck to our cottage in Northern Michigan last summer. I did a lot of shopping around to find a contractor. I am a trial attorney who has litigated more than a hundred construction disputes and know the questions to ask and the things to watch out for. With that background, I cannot say enough good words about DeShano -- Jeff Zettel worked with us through several plan iterations until we finally settled on the scope of work. The specs were complete; the price reasonable and fair; its workers showed up on the day DeShano said they would; it completed the job within the original schedule; when the job was done, the Job Superintendent, Scott Hillier, pointed out some things that should be redone that we did not even notice; DeShano did those things quickly and without complaint; and the quality is exceptional. Chad DeShano, Jeff Zettel, Scott Hillier, and everyone at the company were always friendly and accessible. I give them an A+++++++++++++ rating! Bill S., Attorney"

"We are very please to have had DeShano's construct the addition to my home. The overall experience was great. With the flooding of my Mom's home in May we needed assistance building her a living space at my home. Chad DeShano came to my home and discussed our plans with us personally. We appreciated that. DeShano's helped us get to a point where Mom now has a space of her own again. As a family we really appreciated that extra effort on DeShano's part. Thank You. "
