We're Not Happy Until It's Perfect Down to the Last Detail!

But don't take our word for it! See what some of our past customers have said about our work.

Rich, Thanks again for a good job on the barn. Whenever I get compliments on it I tell People about you. I hope this sends some business your way. I also hope things are going well for you this year. Wally H., Chelsea, MI

Richard and his crew did a outstanding job on a 36' x 64' x 14’ tall barn they built for me ( very meticulous ) . probably the most professional company I've every had do work for me. The crew was awesome people, very friendly. They were on time with the completion and the quality was second to none. I would highly recommend them. Terry K.

Rich and his crew did a fantastic job on my building. I now have a large workshop that is a joy to spend time in. Paul C., Dexter, MI

Rich and his crew exceeded my expectations constructing my new Pole Barn. His design ideas helped create a one of a kind, quality structure that fits beautifully into the surrounding landscape and I still receive many complements on the structure. Rich also allowed me to complete the initial site work and finish electrical myself at my request to help keep within my project budget. I would welcome anyone considering a B.O.B. project to look over what they have constructed on my property, I’m sure they would be thoroughly impressed. Mark R.

My experience with Richard and his company Burly Oak Builders for the completion of my barn was as good as it gets. From the outset, I had an idea of the look I was trying to achieve but did not have all of the specifics as I am no designer. Richard helped me to achieve my goal of a fully functional storage and work barn which blended in beautifully to the surrounding area and neighbors. Bottom line: they did exactly what they said they would do, and on time with no surprises. His crew was courteous and friendly and took great care to clean up after the project was complete. I now have a barn which I love and continue to receive compliments about its appearance. Mark N., Chelsea, MI

As an engineer, I’m am extremely picky about quality. Really, really picky. As a horse lover since I was a little girl, I’ve had 40+ years to dream up the perfect horse barn. Burly Oak Builders built that dream barn and with exceptional quality and attention to detail.

My barn has been through three Michigan winters and summers and nothing has shifted, settled, cracked or shrunk. Nothing has loosened. Nothing has broken. Truly, it’s an exceptionally well-constructed barn. Who takes the time to bevel the edge on every board that horse may rub against? Burly Oak did. Who puts baseboard molding in a tack room? Burly Oak. Who builds staircase railings that look like they should be in a home instead of a barn? Burly Oak. Who installed feed buckets, cut and laid rubber stall mats, installed grill work, french drains and built and installed steel framed dutch doors? That too, would be Burly Oak Builders.

Burly Oak was very accommodating of my desire to purchase particular items to make my barn that of my dreams and Rich was a dream to work with. He discussed every change order with me and gave me very fair quotes for each one so there were no surprises in the end. His crew is professional, courteous and kind. And, they clean up after themselves! Thoroughly!

My husband used to be a builder / woodworker and nobody can ever build anything to his standards. Except Burly Oak. He couldn’t find any issues with their workmanship or the materials used. When we build another barn in the near future, Burly Oak Builders will be the only business that will be quoting the job.

Honestly, if I had internet in my barn, I’d never leave it! Thanks Rich & Team!
Linda S., South Lyon, MI

My husband and myself had a good idea what we wanted in a garage type building. We wanted a three car garage with an additional side garage door for our lawn equipment and we wanted a structure that tied into the look of our home. Sounds easy, but we were very cautious and took our time with the process of figuring out how to achieve this goal. We have worked with contractors in the past with mixed results. In the end went with Burly Oak Builders and I’m glad we did.

Do to my husband’s busy work life, I worked directly with Rich from start to finish on the project. He took his time with me, always address my questions and concerns. He was able to apply his years of experience when it came to placement of window/doors, lighting and color choices. He also had the forethought to extend the concrete in our project to accommodate a design element that he and his crew had never worked with previously. The contract he presented was laid out with complete specifics of structure and materials that would be used.

We can’t say enough about the three men that constructed our building. They were very professional and courteous. They always cleaned the work area up at the end of the day and covered the building materials up to protect them from the weather.

We did have one unanticipated issue with our coach light fixtures that popped up after construction was complete. Rich, was prompt and found a solution to the problem.

We look at our new garage as a piece of craftsmanship, so much so, that we asked Rich and his team to sign a post in the interior of the building. They did a great job and they should take pride in their skills. I would highly recommend Rich and his team to anyone considering building a barn.
Laurie Pietras, Pickney, MI

I had a great experience working with Burly Oak Builders to build my barn (garage + workshop). Rich is very good at planning the layout and knows what will work best. His crew takes pride in their work and it shows in the results. They even leave a neat, organized job site during the construction project. I'm very happy with the final product. Everything is straight, square, plumb, and level, as you would expect from a professional builder! Lars Helgeson, Pickney, MI

The owner, Richard Parr, is very good with details and able to incorporate your ideas into a functional and well-built design. If you’re looking for a great build job and not just shopping price/square foot, call Burly Oak as they do it right.... Joseph Merkel, Building Owner, Merkel's Auction Specialists, Inc.

Burly Oak Builders did an excellent job on my pole barn. Richard and his crew were very flexible and creative in the design and build of my project. Excellent craftsmanship! Joe and Cindy G., Milford, MI

We were very pleased with the quality of the work we had done. Bob and his staff were very knowledgeable and did an amazing job with our new barn doors. Jim P., Dexter, MI

We had Burly Oak build us an attached three car garage for our home in Dexter. Rich was very easy to work with and open to my custom requirements. Could not be happier with the finished product it is very well built and finished. I have recommended him to people I know. Gary R., Dexter, MI

My wife and I highly recommend Burley Oak Builders. We had spoken to a number of builders before meeting with Rich. Rich took the time to understand what we wanted and proposed the perfect building in the perfect spot on our property. He handled the complete job, and we were extremely impressed with the quality and workmanship throughout. Gary and Shery A.

Repeat jobs tell much about a company. I have had BURLY OAK BUILDERS build a pole barn as well as two smaller jobs. Should another need arise, they will be my first call. I have not even bothered with comparing bidders on the later work--too much confidence in BURLY OAK BUILDERS to spend the time. Dennis D., Lodi Township

Rich, I have a very happy husband so that makes me a very happy wife! Appreciate all you did to make this dream come true! Thank you for all your hard work. The barn looks great!!! Dawn & Mike L., Howell, MI

We asked Rich to give us quote for sun room addition to our house in 2015. He walked us through all process, he answered our many questions and best of all gave us idea for better design. This made us more conformable and we proceeded with project. Subcontractors he hired for individual steps were very good and did excellent job. Our beautiful addition was completed on time and within the original estimate it was quoted. We would recommend Burly-Oak builders to all my friend and family. David and Hana

Richard took the time to listen to what I had in mind and designed a pole barn that suits my needs exactly. The site preparation, building construction, concrete and electrical work were all handled very professionally and with excellent attention to detail. Even the county inspectors commented on the high quality of a Burly Oak building. Overall, it was a good experience and I am very pleased with my pole barn. David M.

Burly Oak Builders is the best construction company I have ever had dealings with. Richard is very detail oriented and extremely professional, and he listens to and works with you. His crew of builders are considerate, highly skilled and thorough. Every day the team arrived on a regular schedule and worked long hours. Never once did I have any concerns that my project was being pushed aside or neglected. Everything from grading to aesthetics were handled appropriately. The entire staff of Burly Oak Builders are not only tradesmen but true craftsmen. D.E. and P.J.  M., Pickney, MI

I highly recommend Burly Oak builders. From the beginning of the process, their competitive pricing and thorough outline of the work that was to be performed was amongst the best of the builders I met with. When the construction began, I was pleased to see the correct equipment doing the work as well as adequate hands in the field. This company does not cut corners and does things properly, leaving a stunning, well-constructed barn in the end. I am very pleased with their work and would have them build my next barn if I needed one.

Friendly tip: It’s never big enough. If you think you need 2000 sq. ft., build 3000.
Curtis H., Howell, MI

I highly recommend contacting Burly Oak Builders for building or remodeling needs. The people at Burly Oak Builders were professional and courteous every step of the process from the initial meeting through design and build. They kept us informed of scheduling and were always quick to address any questions or concerns. The crew that built our 40’ x 30’ custom barn worked like a well-oiled machine and paid amazing attention to detail and quality. I liked that Burly Oak handled the site prep as well as the build, that way there were no issues when construction began. The barn turned out great and I could not be more satisfied! Graig R., Milford, MI

Solid construction, thorough design details, competitive pricing coupled with both reliable and friendly service... I’ve been more than impressed with Burly Oak and Rich Parr, utilizing him for both my 3-story addition and most recently, for my full basement renovation. I highly recommend their work. Carolyn P., Dexter, MI

Wanted to tell you that working with you was a pleasure. We love our pole barn. Your workmen were wonderful. They worked through cold weather and kept smiling. Thanks for a great job. Brad and Barbara A.

Burly Oak Builders built my husband the perfect barn. From the design and proposal to the actual work we couldn’t be happier. The quality of the workmanship shows. We get a lot of compliments on it. We highly recommend this company. Al and Deb W., Pinckney, MI
