When we first arrived in Bossier City, my wife, Michele, and I were planned to buy an existing home as we had always done. We went through dozens of houses and could not find one that was just right. About that time, we met the premier custom building team Duggan & Fine. This was the beginning of a great relationship. Throughout the process, Jim and Sam worked with us on every detail that went into our home. There were a lot of changes to the plans along the way. The most interesting one was about heating and air. Due to some ambitious planning, we forgot to leave room for heating and air mechanical. We were notified by the heating and air contractor that we had three choices: 1) No air, 2) window units, or 3) rework the floor plan of the house. Sam and Jim both had a creative and attractive solution. They used large architectural columns to carry the air downstairs. The relationship that developed has continued on. Since we have had to relocate to Lake Charles both Jim and Sam are looking out for our home until it sells. We wish we could bring them here to build us another home.
