"Our overall home-building experience was extremely positive thanks to the outstanding service and quality workmanship of A.D. Longwell. At first, we were a little apprehensive about building as we had heard horror stories about other builders and were concerned about being overwhelmed with choices.
Longwell quickly gave us a comfort level about the entire process and provided us with the appropriate balance of freedom, flexibility, and guidance. We set our expectations throughout the various stages of building and they consistently exceeded them.
We now enjoy ongoing compliments from friends and family about the quality of the craftsmanship of our home. We are proud to have worked with A.D. Longwell."

“We built a house with Todd Longwell, which was completed in June of 2004. We had a wonderful experience working with Todd. We spent many hours on the design of the house.
Todd was able to look at the house plan, listen to our ideas and then, using his architectural knowledge, was able to show us how it could be done (or sometimes explain why it couldn’t be done). Todd patiently listened to our ideas and we were able to come up with some innovative uses of space in our new home.
Todd was very comfortable with trying different products in our house. We used radiant floor heating under our tile and also to heat our finished basement. We used Ipe (hardwood) for our deck, which required an unusual method of installation. We were very particular about many features, materials, etc. and Todd worked with us to help achieve our dream house.
We would highly recommend working with A.D. Longwell. If we decided to build again, we would not consider anyone else.”

“Doreen and I want to thank you all for making our home-building experience such a pleasure. The property is overlooking the hills and landscape of southern Monroe County and it is breathtaking. Royal View certainly is a royal view.
The building experience was a joy without any issues or concerns from the start. Doreen and I were looking for a builder whom we could identify with; a builder whom we could speak directly to and was available at a moment’s notice. The Longwell family made us feel that our dream home was as special to them as it was for us.
The actual building process from selecting the plan, to selections, pricing, building bank closing and architecture all went without issues. When there was a question it was immediately resolved to our satisfaction.
We also love the quality of our home. It is by far the best we have lived in due to the attention to detail. Many things make the Longwell home unique including curved staircases, bookshelves, crown molding, wood floors, kitchen details, unique windows and unique architecture.
We were also very happy with the pricing allotted for selections. All of this put together made our experience wonderful and fun. Our house is unique and lovely. We enjoy our home tremendously as do our family and friends.”

"Our sincere thanks for all your help through the process of building our first house. It is more than we could have imagined when we started and could not be happier with everything you have done. Please pass along our thanks to all the contractors for a superior job and for all the hard work getting us in on time! We'll enjoy it all for many years!"
"We had heard all the horror stories about building a home, and as first-time home builders, our goal was to find a builder with whom this experience would be a memorable - but not nightmarish - one. In A.D. Longwell we found that builder.
Todd Longwell is the consummate professional who managed the building of our custom home from start to finish with competence and attention to detail. We developed a great deal of trust and confidence in him. Todd assured that the workmanship was of the highest quality.
We were especially pleased with the contractors' level of skill since our home had many unique challenges. He was insistent that the tradesmen and vendors adhere to the specified timeframes. Todd communicated with us consistently, frankly, and always in a timely manner.
He was not only able to respond to our questions but educated us as well, enabling us to better understand the building process. While we have been in our new home - and loving it - for nearly a year, Todd has remained available to help iron out those expected new house 'bugs'. Todd's responsiveness has made us feel that we are at the top of his list. He certainly is on top if ours!"
