Testimonials

What our clients say about us:

“With Malmquist, we were extremely appreciative and pleased with the quality of work, the timeliness, and the accuracy on the estimate.”

We underwent a 7000 square foot  house construction with Malmquist in 2017 on Whitefish Lake.  We have previously gone through home construction before and our experience with Malmquist far exceeded our first experience.  With Malmquist, we were extremely appreciative and pleased with the quality of work, the timeliness, and the accuracy on the estimate.

We worked most closely with Bear and Wilson and loved them both.  When we had an issue or a question, there was never a delay or a lack of attention to detail, to getting the problem solved.  Also, for us new to town, they really took extra effort to welcome us into the community. We also worked with their colleague, Barb Cooke, interior designer, who was wonderful and helped make the project flow well.

Lastly, we had to move out of our rental by a certain date and they got us into our new house, as promised, on time.  If we built another house, we would use them again, of course.  They are wonderful to work with and do what they say they are going to do.  Wonderful people, wonderful company.

“We would highly recommend Malmquist Construction not only for their construction knowledge, their network of high quality sub contractors, their dedication, or for what they can do for your project, but rather, for WHO they are as individuals and as a team.”

 

Snow Bear Chalets - Aerial 4 - Trevon Baker1

Malmquist Construction helped us bring our dream to life in the building of Snow Bear Chalets, our three, award-winning vacation rental chalets in Whitefish, Montana. As the World’s First Ski-in/Ski-out Luxury Treehouses, located slope side at Whitefish Mountain Resort, we needed a construction firm that matched our high-quality vision. We found that in Malmquist, and in our project manager, Bear.

Due to their experience and expertise, rather than just building our chalets, Malmquist helped us create a work of art that has garnered international acclaim from Architectural Digest to Travel and Leisure and hundreds of other international reviews as well. Bear’s vast construction knowledge helped us create a quality venture that we can be proud of for the next 50 years. But even more important, his kind spirit and constant smile helped us not only get  through the tough parts of the construction process, but made visiting the job site an enjoyable rather than stressful experience.

We would highly recommend Malmquist Construction not only for their construction knowledge, their network of high quality sub contractors, their dedication, or for what they can do for your project, but rather, for WHO they are as individuals and as a team. They brought success to a very challenging project, and did it with a smile. Who else could build Snow Bear Chalets, but a man named Bear?

Our new house is done and it totally surpassed even what we had dreamed of. We just wish we were up there right now enjoying the lake and the house.

We want to thank you for the amazing job your company did on building our house. Everyone in your organization was so helpful and a please to work with. We especially want to thank you for having Bear run our project. He is a wonderful person and an extremely important asset to your company. His attention to every detail was truly amazing and most importantly he made the “process” fun for us.

We also enjoyed working with you. It is the owner that always sets the tone for the entire company, and you’ve done a great job of that. Everyone is dedicated to excellence and is so pleasant to work with. We have had so many comments of how beautiful and cozy the house looks. It is the perfect size for us and for our property. We couldn’t love it more. Your people truly did an incredible job!

The Malmquist team was amazing to work with-we would do it again in a heartbeat! Everyone involved in our construction project was professional and easy to work with. We were most satisfied with the quality of our home-down to the smallest details and were very happy with the response to our punch list items. This project was our sixth home project and was by far the best experience. We would work with Malmquist anytime!

Our experience working with Malmquist Construction was “over the top”.  All aspects of the process from the initial planning thru the construction process along with all the great communication and decision making made our experience wonderful. Building a custom home is not an easy process and even though our home was fairly complicated, everyone at Malmquist worked very hard to make it an enjoyable process.   We have been in our home now for 10 years, have had great follow up and enjoy its beauty more and more each day.

 “I was thrilled with our home and would recommend them to anyone contemplating a significant building project.”

ALE_Simns1Ktcn

We built a $3+ million home on a lake in Kalispell over a two year period ending in 2005. Malmquist Construction was asked to take over the project from another builder who failed quickly and badly, and they literally saved the house.  But they also redesigned several key areas, working closely with me, adding a lot of character to the home. Their attention to detail was extraordinary.

Our permanent residence is over a thousand miles away.  Especially helpful to us were their strict adherence to the budget, submitting change orders promptly whenever we made decisions that would raise or lower the cost of the project, and also their meticulous and frequent detailed photographs. The photography really allowed us to follow construction each step of the way and minimize the number of trips needed to complete the house.

Lastly, they were fun to work with. Unlike many construction types, they’re able to speak in plain language and have fun on the job.  I was thrilled with our home and would recommend them to anyone contemplating a significant building project.

  “The process, from planning through completion was professional and most of all, fun!”

Malmquist Constructions | Bear Brook Whitefish Lake

Malmquist Construction built our home on Whitefish Lake home, and we highly recommend this building company. The process, from planning through completion was professional and most of all, fun! I met Casey on-site at one of his projects the day before the owners were moving in. Casey had several subs doing all the final touch ups when I just happened to walk onto the property with my dog. Instead of telling me I was trespassing, he welcomed me into the home and showed me the finished home filled with the latest technologies and craftsmanship. He did not know I was a potential customer. I was impressed with that home filled with logs and rocks and even more impressed with Casey’s congeniality.

A few years later we contacted Casey for a bid. He arranged a meeting with those that would be invested in the project: architect, site builder, interior designer, project manager, etc. Malmquist built our 4,000+ square foot home in 10 months. We live in California, so we flew up about every 6 weeks to meet and make decisions. Everything was on a time line. Bear told us when each decision had to be made. We never felt alone or long distance in making all the hundreds of decisions because Bear walked us through each. That included seeing our logs built and laid out in a meadow before installation.

Every sub was wonderful and a top craftsman. Communication between subs, foreman, builder and owners was exceptionally constant. Our property is heavily wooded, and they worked around every tree they could possibly save. It looks like a huge helicopter just dropped our home in the middle of our forest. We stayed almost within budget (upgraded a little along the way), and the main home was completed on time.

If we were adding another structure to our property, we would hire Malmquist again without a doubt. It was a pleasure and joy from start to finish. Bear was an exceptional detailed manager. Every detail we mentioned, he paid attention to and completed.
