Dear Les:

Please accept this letter of thanks for your fine work in the construction of our new home.  This project represents the greatest single investment of our lives, and finding a trustworthy, reliable contractor was a major priority.

From the development of our drawings to the finish and move-in phase of the project, you have provided us with the kind of service and performance that we needed.  We are extremely satisfied with the quality of the materials and the workmanship used in the project.  We are also extremely pleased with the personal service you were able to provide for us during construction.  Your availability and willingness to respond to questions and concerns about the project made this potentially stressful situation very easy to deal with.  Your actions and service are greatly appreciated.

Thank you for an outstanding job. Your work is your best advertisement! Best wishes for continued success in the home building industry. We would be happy to recommend you without reservation.

To Whom It May Concern:

Mr. McGrotty, from our business dealings, is an excellent general contractor. He has never incurred any liens or delays in the construction process. All bills are submitted as required and in a very timely fashion. All work is completed as per his contracts and to the best of my knowledge, within the price quoted.

On a personal side, Mr. McGrotty has done work on my personal residence which was done to my personal satisfaction on time and at the price quoted.

Mr. McGrotty is a contractor with whom First Federal has had nothing but an excellent business relationship with and we value him as a customer and a contractor.

Very truly yours,

Keith L. Elliott
Vice President

Dear Les,

Thanks for buildng our home at 13630 Braeburn Lane, Russell, Ohio. Our home took 6 months to complete. When building a home, there exists a marriage if you will, between the builder and the customer. You must be able to trust the builder and form a good relationship. It was a very exciting and wonderful event to build our new home, but at times, it became stressful. There were so many decisions to make. It was nice to have a builder that could guide us in the right direction. He used very qualified tradesmen. He showed a lot of patience and handled himself in a very professional manner.

In regard to Les McGrotty & Country Side Homes:

Great company. I would recommend this company to anyone building a home and in need of a general contractor!

I was in the midst of building my own home. I ran into a problem with my framing carpenter. The basement was built and the decking on the house was completed when my framer walked off the job. I happened to see Les and told him my dilemma. Les quickly arranged a meeting with my lumber company, his framing carpenter, and myself. In a short time, I had a great crew framing my house. Les also provided me with a great drywall hanger.

Even though I did not hire Les to be my building contractor, I respect and appreciate that he stepped in and helped in my situation.

To Whom It May Concern:

We used Country Side Homes to build our Chesterland home in 2001 and are very pleased with the results. Country Side Homes used quality tradesman and materials and completed our home within the projected timeframe. The overall value for the dollar was very good. We would definitely use Country Side Homes again to build our next home.

Dear Les,

Jean and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all you did to make our dream home a reality. We know that you went above and beyond to make this happen. At every step along the way you made us feel that you had our best interest at heart, and we know for a fact that at times this caused you added pressure. But, through it all, you stayed true to yourself and put your buyer first. It was a pleasure working with you, and if there is a time in the future we need additional work done, we will not hesitate to call on you. Please use us as a reference if needed.

Truly Satisfied,

Gil & Jean Aspinwall


Just a quick note of thanks and appreciation for the outstanding job that was done on my house here on Monterey Drive. I don’t think I’ve ever been as proud to call something my own as I am this house. Your personal dedication and perseverance at making sure everything was done “just right” is to be commended. I don’t believe I’ve ever dealt with any other businessman as honorable or as willing to help even after the deal is done! The compliments from family and friends are never ending as to the excellent planning and workmanship of my home.

I am quite sure you will have many more satisfied customers in the years to come. Best of luck and again, thank you for a job well done.


Dear Les,

Our family is really pleased with the beautiful room addition you built for us. We especially like, and have had many people praise, the appearance of the bay window. It makes the room!

The handicapped bath is excellent for our daughter in her wheel chair. It is well-designed, spacious, and attractive.

Workmanship on the room was excellent and it was finished when you projected. The outside ramp is wonderful too.

Best regards,

George Hodil
