“Having lived in my house for 34 years with no significant basement water issues, I was not prepared for the water which flooded my basement when there was significant rain and or snow melt this past year. I sought a resolution for this from various water solution experts. I felt frustrated with the conflicting opinions and lack of local resources to definitively define and deal with the problem. Fortunately I remembered Lakecountry Construction and Contour with whom I had worked with on another project. They responded quickly to my call, came and assessed the problem and presented a complete plan handling all facets of the work so that I did not have to engage in extensive preparation on my own. I now have a dry basement and the work solved other issued including a rusty faulty exhaust on the furnace which was probably leaking carbon monoxide. If you want a complete plan rather than the purchase and installation of a system which may or may not resolve the problem, try Lakecountry construction. They are competent, courteous and able to handle every aspect of the job. ”

“I had a house design that I wanted built on our land in the village of Marcellus. The neighbors told me that no one wanted the land because the site was so difficult to build on. A landscaping friend told me that in his opinion there was only one contractor in the area that could build on the site. I met with Jared Tracy & was impressed with his "can do" attitude. Jared did an amazing job of making our site into a great place to construct our new house. James Tracy managed the project & soon we had ICF's (insulated concrete forms) in place. Concrete was then pumped into the forms and radiant heat tubing installed in the cellar floor for the woodworking shop. The next portion was framing & Jim's carpenters were exceptional at their task. More radiant tubing & plumbing was installed on the living quarters floor. I did the electrical wiring except for the service entrance. Jim provided me with an electrical contractor for that phase of the project (the code inspector told me that one rarely sees such good quality service entrance work). This home is a "down sizing " for my wife & I so, we chose a gas fired boiler that provides hot water for heating as well as "on demand" domestic hot water. The architect told us that "we could heat our home with a candle". I'm sure that that is true because in february, after spraying foam insulation & installing the fiberglass batts & before the boiler was operational, we heated the whole house with a 4.8 KV electric space heater ! The house design was created by my wife & I, blessed by an architect & constructed to exceptionally high standards by James Tracy - LAKE COUNTRY CONSTRUCTION & CONTOUR. Our house is constructed on a hill side a long 9 Mile creek. It has a storage (sub-basement), a hobby floor (woodworking & sewing room floor), a living floor & an attic. The attic is made with with attic trusses consequently it could be useable for other than storage. We love our house & I would say that we had the Best contractor in central NY to build it”
