“Honest and trustworthy – the best words I know to describe James Eidson – and our main reason for choosing him to build our house.  Our communications with James in person, via telephone or email ensured we had timely responses when questions arose or decisions were needed.  He provided quality materials,  skilled sub contractors, and kept within our budget!This is the fourth house we have built; the process was by far the best we have experienced.  We would choose him again without hesitation.”

“About a year ago we took a permit for a new house on our land on Lopez Island.  We signed a contract with James Eidson, owner of Skagit Design.  James prepared the plans and the application for the permit and built the house on the site that we had cleared and leveled.  The entire process stayed on budget and on schedule.  My wife and I are pleased with the results.  James was always easy to contact, quick to answer questions and fair in his dealings with us.  We recommend Skagit Design for quality, price and fairness.”

I stopped by Skagit Design a few years ago on a whim. We were in the planning stages with another company nearby that was pushy and took advantage of our inexperience. I immediately realized that Skagit Design is a company that values its clients and strives to please them. I always felt as if I mattered and was more than a paycheck to them. James was so patient with my unending questions and helped me modify the floor plan a million times until I was satisfied. The building process itself was smooth, on budget, and well-communicated throughout. Even now, 3 years later, I can turn to them with questions and receive prompt, courteous responses. I couldn’t be happier with our home, and I highly recommend Skagit Design!


“Thank you for building the house I had pictured in my dreams.  I’m so glad I spent the extra $ on the jacuzzi tub ~ what an oasis. This has been a tremendous learning experience.  Thanks to all the subs too.  My family will create lasting and fun memories in this house for years to come.”

James, Brian and Angel;

Having built 5 homes as new construction over the years, I want to thank you and please use my letter as a recommendation to other potential customers.

My experience with Skagit Design Homes was exemplary. In retrospect, I had minimal issues. You did all as was promised. With only a very few mis-understandings…it was as promised and a “clean and quick” building process. I highly recommend your business to anyone considering working with you.

Thank you and Kind Regards,

“Building a home with Skagit Design of Burlington has truly been a pleasure. The quality of the construction is OUTSTANDING! James has been with us every step of the way. I feel that I have been helped with decisions above and beyond. With their help I have a beautiful new house. I feel that I was kept informed on everything that was happening and what needed to be done next. The experience has been great and I would definitely recommend building a home with them. I love my new house.”

Incredibly knowledgeable and infinitely patient, they really do know all there is to know about building your dream home! While we unfortunately were unable to get our home for reasons outside Skagit’s control, I still highly suggest them.
