Calusa Construction far exceeded our expectations in the construction of our new beach home. We were savvy consumers since we had built a custom home previously but this experience differed in that it was a second home and we were managing decisions from afar. Calusa provided prompt communication, attention to detail, a knowledgeable team, and value.
Communication: We received regular updates from the start, which increased in frequency during the 16 month construction period and became almost daily towards the final few months. Emails, phone calls, pictures, even videos were sent to demonstrate progress. Whenever we had a question the email replies were almost immediate, and consistently by the next day. We have running documentation of each decision and outcome. Despite being miles away, we felt at ease that we were on top of the process.
Knowledgeable team: With Aidan Weir in charge and Joel Mulder as site manager, we couldn’t have asked for a more experienced, qualified team. When we raised concerns about wind, water and weather resistance, the reply was “We are going to build you a submarine”. The team’s experience building on the beach meant that important selections were made to assure durability and storm resistance.
Attention to details: Things we would not have thought of to match up, line up or inspect were finished to perfection. Not a back of a door, under a counter, hinge of a shutter, or alignment of a panel was acceptable unless it was exact. Even after the CO, the team was available to assure that all aspects of the home were to our satisfaction.
Value: Calusa sought out value in bids to subs and selection of building materials. They provided documentation on each payment.. The builder’s fee was fair and reasonable and he kept his word on all aspects of the contract.
We trusted Calusa Construction with one of our most valuable investments for the future and they did not disappoint.Client,
Calusa Construction, headed by Aidan Weir, tore down my 1948 cottage in Old Naples and constructed a marvelous new two story cottage and pool. The Calusa team provided an extraordinary attention to detail, emailed daily reports, and were always available for discussion or meeting. We did this long distance, and yet it was seamless. The recommendations for examining marble, or appliances, or roof styles/materials, and landscaping were excellent , and always with several source and cost ranges. The on-site foreman was meticulous and the site was always clean and orderly. We have built six houses, and this was the best experience , with a special outcome. I strongly recommend Calusa Construction and Aidan Weir as your home builder. His follow-up after occupancy has been impressive on the little things.

I have worked with Calusa for more than a decade on numerous new construction and remodel projects. Aidan and John are all extremely knowledgeable and passionate about the building process. What sets them apart is their attention and care about the myriad of details that it takes to complete a custom home. They are excellent communicators, keeping all Team members in the loop with the homeowner at the forefront. I always enjoy working with them and feel confident recommending them to my clients.Colleague,
I used Calusa to do extensive remodeling work to my house. They are very skilled and experienced at what they do, made lots of very useful recommendations. The job turned out much better than I had expected, and that is in no small part to the advice and project management skills of the Calusa team. I would be more than happy to recommend them for any project either a remodel or new house build.Client,
The timetable was met, the entire staff was very accommodating, the contractors very satisfactory and the finished product is of high quality…We would wholeheartedly recommend Calusa.Client, Customer
Calusa Construction did a fabulous job on my recent beach home update. The company went above and beyond my expectations. They started the job when they said and actually finished the job when promised. Every question or concern I might have had was addressed and answered. I will definitely be using them again in the future.Client, Customer
My experience working with Calusa Construction on my home in Naples was first class. Their highly skilled management staff, carpenters, and subcontractors created the perfect home from the highest quality materials to not only match, but exceed my vision. That, coupled with the open book cost plus model made the entire experience second to none. This is my second project with Calusa Construction and I look forward to working with them for all of my construction needs in the years to come!Client, Customer
Integrity, creativity, and patience is what you get when you work with Calusa. We built a beach front home and have been extremely pleased with the whole process. Aidan was always available and willing to answer all of our questions. He was very thorough during the permitting and design process which made construction smooth. It is easy to get complacent during a 24 month project but he was steadfast in their desire to build a quality project. Despite being a few years old our house looks as good now as it did the day we moved in. This is a testament to the quality of construction and supervision which they provided.Client, Customer
I have used Calusa Construction to build my main house in Florida and I also used them to build and addition to that home. I felt the work was impeccable and dealing with them was very easy. They also paid a lot of attention to the many details that I had in my plans. All I can say is that I would use them again to build another home in Florida.Client, Customer
