It’s James’ aesthetic integrity that puts him at the top of my list. An eye for details, a selection of superb recycled artifacts, and a mind that easily maneuvers how to make things work... ”

James Dawes is an honest, reliable, and creative person. He was the general contractor for our home addition and he was on-time, on-budget, and provided us with a quality finished product. Also, he hired quality subs who were courteous and reliable. We couldn't have been more pleased. We highly recommend him! ”

I knew what I wanted, but it took James to translate that vision with his collection of salvaged materials and a desire to really listen and think through details. His subcontractors and crew were always organized and driving hard. What I got was so much more than the sum of the parts. PlaceMakers exceeded my expectations in every way.”
