To Whom It May Concern

We have just moved into our dream home and a magnificent home it is!

Joel & Jennifer Plouffe of Capital Hills Development made our dream come true. The whole experience was a pleasure; from the initial planning, throughout the build, to the completed product. Joel and Jennifer were dedicated to making our home one that we would be proud of. We have received rave reviews and lavish compliments from everyone who has seen our beautiful home.

The standards set by Joel exceeded our expectations and were executed by his contractors in a professional and timely manner. There were a number of items included in our home that we did not ask for nor expect AND our home came in
on time and under budget. My wife and I were allowed to exercise our creative touches and always received appropriate advice and guidance. Joel made our desires a priority. It was evident from the start Joel understood this was our dream home and it was clear how important it was to him that we were happy and satisfied.

We have built before with a "national" builder. There is no comparison to what we received with Capital Hills and what we never received with the other guys. Joel started as my builder and now we consider him a friend. No one could ask
for more from a home builder in the Austin area. I have referred friends and colleagues to him for their building needs.
I highly recommend Joel Plouffe and Capital Hills Development for all your building or remodeling needs without reservation.

Dear Joel and Jennifer,

We want to thank you for our beautiful home.

We had never a built a home before and were a bit nervous about such a big project, but Joel was so easy to work
with and walked us though the process.

We appreciated Joel always working to get the best price he could for us with the subcontractors and making sure there work was high quality. All of his subs did excellent work and were very timely.

When we did have any concerns Joel was always willing to listen to us and made sure all issues were addressed to our satisfaction.

I was so anxious to get into our new home and was so happy when the house was completed ahead of schedule so we could move in and enjoy the holidays in our beautiful new home. We have been our house for 6 months and have loved it.

Thanks again,
Tracy & Calum McCasland

Dear Joel,

We wanted to write and thank you for the excellent work that you and your employees did on our house. We appreciate the quality of the materials you used and painting the exterior of the house by brush and not using a sprayer. We also were very pleased with the plumbing replacements you all did in the kitchen and guest bath. Thank you for being prompt and completing the jobs in a timely manner.

We have kept your business card and will strongly recommend your company to friends and family. A great contractor is not easy to find these days. We are glad that after an extensive search we have finally found one.

Mike and Laure Stroh

We found Joel, Ramón and their colleague to be highly professional, courteous and very competent. They completed the work at our home on time and went out of their way to buy the matching paint themselves. They even did a few extra touch ups around the house for free.

We would gladly recommend them and will be calling them in the future if we need them.

Dear Joel and to all the folks who worked on our home at 5410 Shoalwood, Austin,

I have been remiss in not sending you our thanks for changing our house from the rundown place it was
in the neighborhood, to a beautifuladdition to the neighborhood. We have gotten so many
compliments about the house.

We had never had any work done to the exterior of the house except painting it ourselves, several years
ago. We bought the house in 1981. lt was built in 1937, so now it is the oldest in the neighborhood.
And before Capital Hills Dev. Corporation got hold of it, it truly looked like the oldest home in the

Our experience with Capital Hills, and most especially Joel, made a couple of very nervous homeowners,
believers in hiring a company that takes care of its' clients, and does beautiful work.
lf we ever had a question, we got an almost immediate response or someone would come over to see
what we needed.

We would highly recom mend Joel Plouffe, and his crews, to do any work you might have. You will end
up as satisfied and happy as we are with the work.
We would highly recommend them to anyone considering work to be done on their home.
I am enclosing before and after shots of our house.

Dear Joel,

Rodney and I want to express our congratulations on the outstanding results we are now
enjoying from your installation of our beautiful new hardwood flooring, and our sincere
thanks for a job well done!

The renovation project was clearly quite an undertaking - removing the damaged wooden
flooring and the residual adhesive from the living, dining and hallway areas of our home,
cleaning and prepping the foundation surface, then laying the new hardwood, and
finishing with painting of the new trim and our existing baseboards.

We appreciate the attention to detail and quality workmanship that Andreas and
Kiss performed every day during the week-long project. They are true craftsmen and we
greatly admire their talent, obvious experience level and strong work ethic.
We would like to place on record our sincere appreciation of the way you have conducted
business with us; it is very rare to find such high standards of sincerity and trustworthiness
in the world of business today. We look forward to contracting with Capital
Hills Development for our next home improvement project, and will gladly recommend
your services to friends, co-workers and family. It will be our pleasure to work you in
the future.

Wishing you the very best for your continued success, we remain,

Sincerely yours,

Connie and Rodney Viator
Joel and Steve,

Would like to thank you for a job well done on our floors and both bathrooms. The floors
look great and the bathrooms are work of art.

Thanks again for all the hardwork and cooperation, and your patience in getting this job done
and please give our best to all the workers who worked on this project. They were always courteous and respectful.
