" Throughout this whole process, you guys have been great. We could not have asked for better builders. The house has turned out to be better than we ever imagined!"

" After looking at new homes for about 5 years and trying to justify a new mortgage and the cost of building in 2009 compared to 1979, we accidentally found Janus Custom Homes. We had known her family since she was about 8 years old. We knew she built new custom homes but did not know she did renovations. Well it was easy to make the decision after learning that fact and a simple email to her website got the ball rolling. Janice, Daniel, Patrick and Kelly Potter took our home in French Creek purchased on 12-3-1979 and carefully walked us through an amazing renovation. We have a new home for about 25% of what a new home would be and still no mortgage. The home was under careful watch each day by Patrick Potter. The home was kept as clean as possible each day by the contractors. I know Janice has a high standard of construction and her subs follow her instructions. I highly recommend her company and would encourage anyone to visit with her in their decision making process. Janice brings the best to the table. She knows construction inside and out. She knows current codes and guidelines. She lets you make all your own decisions and has an enormous resource of vendors in all lines to choose from. I listened to Janice during this process and only made her promise me "do not let me make a mistake". She promised and we made no mistakes. I also told her anything new is better than old, wall color, carpet, floor tile, light fixtures, sheetrock, insulation, driveway, sidewalks, patio, wiring, appliances, countertops, bathtubs, windows, doors. New is better. "

" We have been very happy with our new home and have enjoyed sharing it with friends and family, especially on Christmas day. It was truly an enjoyable and exciting experience building our home with you and your family (Daniel & Patrick were great to work with!)."

" -Janice, Daniel, Kelly & Patrick- Chris, Emily and I would like to thank you so much for everything you did to make our dream of owning this beautiful home a reality. Each of you put in so much time, thought and energy into our home and we will be forever grateful. Our experience with Janus Custom Homes was a personal and professional pleasure. Thank you!"
- Chris, Denise & Emily Allen .
" Throughout the process of building the house, Janice and/or Daniel have been available at all times to us by phone call. They are personally on site every day – several times a day. They work at keeping the lines of communication open – so that there are no surprises. There are not enough words to describe the pride and integrity that Janice takes in building a home. She truly cares about every inch and every procedure. With Janice you do not have to be concerned that shortcuts are being taken – for they are not. She explains all that goes on in the construction of the home in language that is understandable. I can honestly say – that the time we have spent working with Janice and her employees has been very pleasurable. I highly recommend Janice and Janus Custom homes to anyone looking to build a custom dream home for themselves. "

" Janus Custom Homes is somewhat unique in that the owner is a female builder. Now don't let that make you uneasy because she has many years of experience. She does a fantastic job of blending the male and female points of view which ensures a home the husband and wife will be happy with. She is a very good listener and takes the time to answer all of your questions. She gives you that good feeling inside that you made the right decision in letting her build your home. Janus Custom Homes is diligent in seeing that the process of building a home goes as smoothly as possible. A lot of builders say that they pay close attention to details but oftentimes fall short of reaching that goal. You will find that one of Janus' trademarks is being detail-oriented. She will be on the jobsite every day, making you feel as if you have her undivided attention. I challenge you to visit a home she is in the process of building. Talk to the subs, you learn a 1ot about the builder by doing this. She handpicks her subs and the subs know the quality she demands, there are no second chances here. Your home will have more than the minimum requirements to make it energy-efficient and will be built to last a lifetime. Most people say building a custom home is stressful, and it can be, if you choose the wrong builder. This is our second home that Janice has built for us. She was not only our builder, but has become a good friend. How many people can say that about their builder? "

" Dear Janice, Thank You and the entire Janus Team (especially Daniel, Patrick and Kelly) for the high degree of professionalism and level of commitment in the construction of our gameroom and pool house. What could have been very difficult, harmonizing new structures with the existing home and pool, particularly given the landscape challenges, was a complete success due to the following: listening closely to what we wanted, but giving us honest suggestions and design ideas, instead of feeding-back what you thought we wanted to hear; using reliable labor, superior craftsmanship, and quality materials; strict attention to detail; responsiveness (before, during, & after construction); and, simply being a pleasure to deal with. What impressed us and what we really appreciated most, was getting Janus' highest level of concentration and making us feel special, despite the fact that our projects were a custom renovation & addition rather than a complete build. This dedication led to all goals being realized, along with achieving some unanticipated extras, like the eco-friendliness, maintenance efficiency, and vast entertainment value. One of life's fun adventures has turned out to be positively gorgeous! We will all get together soon to celebrate mission accomplished. Thanks again & Very best regards."

" Thank you and Patrick also the other workmen for the fine job in my bathroom. The new shower is great. It turned out just as I hoped it would. I know it was a small job for your company but I do so appreciate you doing the job for me. "

" One of the first things that became evident about Janus Homes was their attention to detail. From the first time we sat down to go over the initial set of plans their many years of experience was apparent through their design recommendations. Their recommendations were rooted in this experience and were backed-up by examples that further secured my confidence in them. Their attention to detail was consistent throughout the building process but in particular during the framing stage, which I now take a lot of comfort in. If during any of the multiple daily inspections they did not like how a particular section was being built, or in some cases already finished, they would have the framers correct or rebuild the section. Having had family members in the trades growing up back in Boston, I had the opportunity to see a number of houses during the framing stage of construction. Based on this, I was struck by the quality of the framing. Not only the quality of the work but the choice of materials and the added bracing and supports in the roof, staircase, and other areas of the home. I had not seen such steps taken in homes back in Boston. Knowing that we plan to live in this house for many years and raise our children here, the structural soundness of the home provides significant piece of mind. This attention to detail carried through to the final inspection. And along the way other stages of the process were reviewed with added scrutiny as in the case of the mechanical installs as well as the insulating of the home. These are elements of the home that deserve increased attention and knowing that they were designed and constructed expertly, provides me as the home owner with all that is important…piece of mind. I would highly recommend Janus Custom Homes. They turned a drawing into reality and built my wife and I the house we had been dreaming about and one that we will enjoy for many years. "
