“Don understood our vision for the house and helped us to realize it by working with us from concept through construction.  After hearing nightmarish tales from many friends who worked with other builders on much simpler projects, we actually thoroughly enjoyed the process of building our dream house with Don.  We still regularly get compliments from neighbors passing by about how stunning the house turned out.”     Katy & David Dirks, 8 57th St.  Plum Island

“We are extremely pleased with the work that was completed on our home.  We bought a home that over the last 120 years had been chopped up into little apartments and left in a very neglected state.  Don took us through the entire restoration from initial budget and design to a completely finished, beautiful Victorian that we are very proud of.  Don has a tremendous depth of knowledge, he’s very skilled at design and he understands old houses.  He has a fantastic team of craftsmen at his disposal — there were days when there were at least 20 individuals working on the house with something different happening on each floor. In just 4 months we had a budget that was intact and a house that had passed every inspection, had been completed wired, plumbed, rebuilt and beautifully re-finished from top to bottom. We wholeheartedly recommend Don and wouldn’t think twice about using him on our next project.”   Nancy and Dave Rees, 255 High St,  Newburyport

“Hughes Development built the home that my family and I have been living in for the past 11 years.  Though planned as a spec home, Don allowed us all kinds of flexibility in the interior layout and finishes as well as with many exterior features.  He also provided us with the expertise and guidance to help us make good decisions.  In the end, it really felt like we had designed our own custom home but we managed to stay within our original budget.  Since we originally moved in, we have hired Don to do several other improvements, all of which we have been very happy with.”   Ken Halkin, 17 Mechanics Row Amesbury MA
