“James Schouten and Mill Creek Construction did a wonderful job on our first custom-built home. New to the area, we went to him after several excellent recommendations and after looking at quite a few of his previous homes. All of his clients were very pleased with both his work and their relationship with him.
We had only a general idea of the house we wanted, and a lot of pictures and plans, but James took us though a careful, professional process that allowed the three of us to both design the home we were dreaming about, and adjust the plans as the building progressed. The result is a true combination of his design and building expertise, and our fully-realized hopes—all on a limited budget. James is honest, conscientious, upfront and realistic, and absolutely meticulous. Importantly, he listens to you, and works hard to understand what exactly it is that you are imagining, but perhaps articulating vaguely. In short, he is the sort of professional and person you always hope to work with, but too often are not fortunate enough to find.
We highly recommend him without hesitation, without qualification.”

“We had the pleasure of having Mill Creek Construction build our custom home in SunLand. We first met James Schouten in late October 2008 and within a few hours had toured three homes that he designed and built. We were impressed with the quality of his product and with his personality. We had interviewed other potential builders but from the onset we were certain we would select Mill Creek. It turned out to be the perfect choice as everything progressed smoothly and timely from the planning and design phases through move-in day. James is professional and personable and it was evident that his demand for excellence is well respected by his subcontractors and the material suppliers. James and the various tradespeople he hired maintained close contact with us and we enjoyed all the discussions we had with them. We love living in this beautiful new home that is custom designed to accommodate our activities and taste. We celebrated Thanksgiving 2009 here, thankful that Mill Creek built it to our satisfaction. Many neighbors and friends tell us that we have the most beautiful home in SunLand. We think so, too!”

“We want to thank you for the wonderful home you built! People continually warned us that building can be such a stressful experience. We are so happy that was not the case for us. This was the most perfect building experience we could have asked for. Your style along with your personality were a perfect match for us. We have, and will continue to recommend you to anyone we know wanting to build a new home.
We truly appreciate the quality of work, as well as how well you stayed within budget and schedule.”

“The secret to a successful building process is to surround yourself with the right professionals in the industry. I sure did this in choosing James as the designer and contractor. One of the things that impressed me the most his ability to cope with the changes that requested. There was never a problem. It was always doable and there was always an option. The end results were my new home was on budget, it was complete on time and I have a quality home that I am most proud of.”
