It is with delight and honor that we write this testimonial about our
home-building experience with David Zeff as our contractor.
Zeff, owner of Prana Construction, is a craftsman and a man of integrity. Never
in the several months that we worked together on the project did we have reason
to doubt a single thing he said to us.
Other contractors told us that for the money we were able to spend, we could
build only a rather simple house with no frills. David told us we could have our
wrap-around porch, have our tower with the winding staircase and the window seat
And it all happened. David was at the site virtually every day, overseeing
foundations, pounding nails, bending oak in the perfect curves for our millwork.
His attention to detail was astonishing. Together with his brother, Eric, and a
small crew, he made sure every cornice and every wall were up to his demanding
David let us know in plenty of time when we had to have, say, the appliances or
the cabinet knobs purchased. Each time we arrived unexpected, he was gracious,
seemed happy to see us and always had a few things to show us.
We would recommend David Zeff and Prana Construction to anyone who wants to
remove most of the headaches from a home-building or home-remodeling experience –
and to get it done within budget.
We would be happy to receive telephone calls from people who want further
amplification of our experience with David Zeff.

"Dave did a major addition to our home, including expanding the footprint and popping the top. As a trial lawyer specializing in construction litigation, I have seen innumerable home projects that have gone awry, and I was concerned that we might suffer problems similar to those I had seen others suffer. To our delight, Dave was absolutely on time and on budget, and the quality of his work was superb. We give him an unqualified recommendation."

"We can not say enough about the great work Prana Construction did in our home. From plan design to build, David Zeff, his brother Eric, Tyler and the other Dave arrived promptly every morning and cleaned up each evening before they left. Friends came though our home and were equally amazed at what a clean work site it was. The guys were friendly and Dave was exceptionally easy to work with. We are very satisfied with our new kitchen and mudroom. We thought the subs that worked with Prana were high quality and it was clear Dave had a good working relationship with them. We felt that we got a high quality job minus the hassle of working with an architect. Prana finished on-budget and ahead of schedule. We highly recommend them.

"I am Writing this letter as David Zeff and his Construction CO. complete a project for me that was kind of complex and mos likely a little tedious for them. But they took it on, with a smile and enthusiasm.
When a project is done in your home and you are living there, it can be nerve wracking to say the least. I must say that there was not a single complaint on the part of my husband or me. As the workers arrived each day sometimes the same sometimes different depending on the part of the job they were doing, they would say hello and go right to work. Another great thing is that they showed up every time they said they would.
Their work was excellent, always checked out with the inspector. I have seen a much bigger project that ours completed and thought it was nothing short of a miracle.
I know if you decide to use Prana, you will be thoroughly satisfied."

I want to thank you for all that you do for me as well as for our clients. Last week, Dennis Tharp told me that it was a pleasure to work with you. He specifically mentioned that you are always on time, always courteous and thoughtful, hardworking and that you are respectful of their home.
Nell and Bob Parnell were also highly complimentary of you and Eric. They complimented the quality of your workmanship and told me how pleasant it was to have you working in their home.
It is so essential to me to work with good people such as yourself and Eric. I appreciate the open and easy communications that we have. I also appreciate the way we work together to solve problems. Thank you for all that you do for me and my business.
