Bay View

A few months later I met with our client for the Bay View project, and I knew John would be perfect for it. It was finally going to happen. This beautiful and unique home turned out to be one of John’s last designs. During construction of the home, John was diagnosed with terminal cancer and was unable to see the completion of the project. I will forever be grateful for the opportunity to work with John and get to know a man who I had admired his work for so long. 

Bay View

Project Duration: 14 Months

Bay View is a sentimental home for us. We finally had an opportunity to work with an architect who I considered a local legend. Jot Potvin’s designs were well known and recognized in our beautiful town. Having worked as a carpenter on a handful of them, it was my dream to one day build one of his designs. As my daughter entered the 3rd grade, I became aware of the fact that John’s wife was her teacher. Every Monday for that entire year, I sent my daughter in with the same message, “My daddy is a builder and wants to build one of your husband’s homes.” Fast forward a few years and I finally had a chance to meet with John. As I was walking him through our Little Sarasota Bay Coast Contemporary project, I told him about my plan with my daughter and he erupted with laughter, “You’re the guy!” he exclaimed.  We had a good laugh about it and we set out to find the right project.

We consulted with Trinity Construction because we were having problems with our new home builder not meeting electable on warranty repairs. Jay was able to give us some priceless insights, industry knowledge, and point out numerous problems going on during the construction. Thanks to his walk through, we were able to get our home builder warranty department to replace several things in our home that we could have missed without his expertise and knowledge. He also brought attention to some serious hazards that were going on during construction. He was straight forward and honest, which I greatly appreciated.
When I think of Mike and his team over at Trinity Construction and design the first things that come to mind are trust, honesty, and integrity. I met Mike when he was brought in on a new-build to take over for a contractor who lost those values. I refer him to friends and colleagues and have received calls back thanking me for introducing them to Mike and his team. As a licensed home inspector I’ve seen my share of sloppy workmanship but I’ve stood in some of Mike’s luxury builds and my parents and I both live in two of his remodels and his attention to detail is unmatched.
The professionalism I have experienced working with Jay, the VP of Operations, has been unequaled. He is detail oriented and never misses a thing. He is equitable, honest, and quick to respond.
Trinity Construction is undeniably impressive. Their craftsmanship and professionalism shows through their work. If you’re looking for an insightful and talented team who does it all, look no further.
