The log home that I purchased a few years ago needed considerable repair, and of the few recommendations that I received from a respected vendor, Paxx and Cindy were the only ones who took my need seriously. At first, I was concerned that I was taking too great a leap of faith on one estimate, but the risk paid off. So much so that for the last three years, I’ve relied solely on the Burk team to address my log repair needs and for advice on any future decisions. If I summed up my experience with Burk Construction in a few words, they would be hard work, expertise, honesty, care, and respect.
Paxx Burk and his crew raised our barn frame in 2 amazing weeks! His skill and experience were readily apparent as we initially met at another client’s project. Since then we have even visited some of his other projects. If it is a barn, a house, or a shed, his craftsmanship is amazing! For our barn we only needed the frame raised, and he did so with great attention to detail. Equally important, Paxx and the crew were always very professional and kept our place nice and orderly. We are extremely grateful for the knowledge, trust, and friendship we gained along the way. I highly recommend Paxx for your timber frame project.
Dear Paxx and Cindy,
Thanks is not enough for all the outstanding innovative help you’ve given us over the last 2 years. Companies like yours, considerate and helpful, are just not plentiful enough in this day and age. When we decided to build 2 homes in Wears Valley, Tennessee, we did not hesitate to call upon Burk Construction. We met you at a Log Home show but you went out of your way to make us feel comfortable and confident in your abilities and honesty. You both have been so great to us and for us to work with. Your ability to listen, design, and build a quality home is unsurpassed. The workmanship, care, and dedication were evident from day one through completion. We can’t thank you enough.
As folks have visited and gone through our new homes, they have raved about the craftsmanship, woodwork, color palette, and positioning of the home to look out onto the Smoky Mountains. We are extremely proud of our homes and would be remiss if we did not let you know how satisfied we are.
I would highly recommend anyone to call upon Burk Construction for any of their construction needs. Thanks for stepping up and stepping out!
My husband and I recently relocated to Tennessee from Texas. We purchased an old dairy farm located on a tall hill with the dream of building a home that took advantage of the beautiful vista.
Paxx was the first and only builder we interviewed. We knew he was our guy from our initial meeting. We found Paxx to be knowledgeable, detailed, honest, fair, and personable. We also found him to be creative and imaginative throughout the entire building process. These last two attributes were very good for us when my husband and I didn’t quite have the same vision. Paxx was very inventive in coming up with solutions that made us both happy.
We learned very early in our relationship with Paxx that Burk Construction is indeed a family business. The entire Burk family is truly special. We feel blessed not only to have had them build us a beautiful home but to have become our forever friends.
We bought a 94 year old house that had fallen into deep disrepair. The contractors we interviewed confirmed a solid foundation and structure. Paxx Burk quickly caught our vision for complete renovation and adding an attached garage without removing the period look of the house. His crew was a good professional team, hardworking and reliable.
We are glad to have employed Paxx Burk and are extremely pleased with the results.
We knew that we wanted a barn, but did not know where or how to begin. Paxx listened to our ideas, and then designed a timber frame barn that is as beautiful as it is functional.
All of the wood for the timber frame and siding was milled on site by Paxx, using logs from our property. His understanding of the characteristics of the wood and his attention to detail resulted in a superb structure that has such character. We love to show it to friends. The whole process went very smoothly thanks to Paxx’s planning. His crew worked hard, carried out their activities without interfering with our daily routines and was very professional.
Since building our barn 6 years ago, we have had Burk Construction build two more out buildings. We have been very pleased with the results.
We view Burk Construction as an honest business and one that has provided the comfort of knowing that the work is very well done.
Not only is Paxx Burk a talented carpenter, builder, and designer, he is a trustworthy, honest, and a “become your friend” businessman.
Introduced by sheer accident while we were building our cabin, he turned it into something we could never have envisioned without his expertise. His attention to detail and knowledge of his craft are remarkable.
That chance meeting made our little cabin in the woods a place to be proud of. We still admire his work every day!
Not only did we get a beautiful place, we acquired some wonderful friends in him and his family!
We are the owners and occupants of one of the oldest log structures in Warren County known as the Potter house. Because of its age, built in 1807, we had serious deterioration and rotting of some of the logs; we were needing the expertise of someone who not only could “patch” the house, but someone who knew how to “fix” the house and what to do to properly maintain the structure. We contacted Burk Construction and were very pleased with the results. From start to finish, professionalism was exhibited. We give our stamp of approval!
Burk Construction and crew,
We want you to know how very pleased we are with the quality of service that your company provided recently on the replacement of damaged logs to our home. The new logs look great!
Paxx Burk, Derrick Anderson and crew were excellent to work with on our restoration from start to finish.
The new logs, new stain and new chinking look beautiful! Everyone involved with this project took the time to answer all of our questions and when the project began we were confident that we had found the right people for the job! We are so happy with the results! Our little cabin looks new again!
Paxx’s dedication and attention to detail establishes the standard of excellence that I have come to expect from Burk Construction Company. Their performances have significantly contributed to the success of my projects on which they have participated. I highly recommend them with no reservations.
My wife Cindy and I would like to commend Paxx and Cindy Burk on the excellent job they did on walking us through each step of the building of our log home. As you may be aware, the process of building a log home is more involved and requires much more specialized experience on behalf of the builder than a typical stick built home does. Since my wife and I had admired log homes for many years and had researched the different aspects of building a log home, we knew it would require building skills, abilities and knowledge way beyond the normal contractor’s scope. We knew to find someone with the experience and know how to be able to combine our ideas into the chinked log home design we wanted would be a challenge, and then we met Paxx and Cindy Burk.
Paxx and Cindy took the time to answer our questions and explained in detail the log home building process from foundation, log and roofing selection through log stacking, insulating and chinking. Paxx explained the special considerations log homes require related to window and door, electrical and plumbing location and installation. We hadn’t made our final decision to build yet, but this first meeting with Paxx and Cindy at the log show sure helped to answer many of our questions. A couple of weeks later we met again, and toured a cabin similar in design to what we were interested in that the Burks had built and discussed more details. We then sat down with Paxx and Cindy one last time to go over any final details and questions we had. At that point my wife and I felt very comfortable (both professionally and personally) with the Burk’s extensive log home knowledge and in their ability to build us the home we’d only dreamed of.
We can’t commend the Burk’s enough on how well they managed, scheduled and simplified the building of our home for us. From their resolving of drainage and permit issues to incorporating the specific ideas we had into our home and still keeping the overall authentic look, we were pleased. It was of special interest to us how Paxx kept the building process continually moving along with work being performed in as many as 4 areas (septic, subfloor, masonry, electrical) at the same time. This we feel can only be attributed to his vast hands on building and scheduling experience.
We look back on the experience now and realize that we’ve not only built the log home of our dreams but two very special friendships in Cindy and Paxx as well. We highly recommend that anyone contemplating the building of a log home contact the Burk’s for the straight forward answers you’re searching for and we feel confident you will be pleased in choosing Burk Construction for the construction of your dream home as we are.
My home is so beautiful. Derrick, Jason and crew have been such a blessing. They have done such a great job. I know that God showed me the way to go this time to get my home in great condition.
