In the spring of 2012, my wife Linda and I decided to move to the Bossier City area. Not knowing if we would buy an existing home or build one, we began our search. After a few months we decided that would buy a lot in Kingston Plantation and build a new house. We started talking to builders and looking at house plans. We went to the 2012 Parade of Homes and met Donny and Debbie Leatherwood at their home in the parade, built by Duggan and Fine. We had heard of Duggan and Fine, but after hearing the Leatherwood's comment and seeing the quality of work in their house, we decided to contact them. We also met Sam Duggan at another home on the parade in 2012. 

After our first visit with Jim Fine, well Jim just made us feel comfortable. He listened to what we had to say and answered all our questions. We felt we could trust them to build our dream home. We looked at some existing house plans that Jim had, but eventually Jim led us to Crawford and Associates to design our new house. On February 1,2013 we started construction of our dream home and it was finished by June 1, just in time for the 2013 Parade of Homes. We had almost 500 visitors to our house during the weekends of Parade of Homes. We were told by several visitors that our home was one of the top houses in this year's parade. Thanks to Jim and his contacts to get us in the Parade of Homes.

As with any construction, there were a few problems along the way. But Jim and Sam certainly took care of everything until we were completely satisfied. We developed relationships with Duggan and Fine and their subcontractors that will last forever.

During construction they were always just a phone call away. They even came out after the rains and shoveled mud off the streets. Jim was at our house the night before parade power washing our concrete driveway. A few times I heard Sam tell the subcontractors, not good enough, lets get it right it. It just shows their desire to get the job done and get it right. Almost four months after moving in, Jim called and asked if we would like to have our house featured in the forum, a local magazine. We said yes and we had a writer and photographer from the Forum at our house the next week. It was amazing to see our house in the magazine. They did a great job. The article is in the November 2013 issue and can be viewed at www.theforumnews.com. All thanks to Jim.

Duggan and Fine will build your dream home too. We built the house without a contract, just a handshake. They will take care of you.
