We bring a unique relationship-based approach to that puts the focus on you, the client. Hallomoon is a licensed construction company with an architectural background. We are not as large as some, but our education, experience, and community involvement distinguishes us.
When I set out to begin this construction company it was about putting a belt back on to feed my family. I was an over-educated contractor taking a chance. What came of it was line upon line—a simple business gradually grew not just in complexity, but also in personal fulfillment for everyone involved. As we grew from simple fence building to large-scale remodels and custom homes, we learned and continue to learn new things and to refine our craft. As you can see, Hallomoon Construction has grown into an accomplished, refined, and distinctive business focused on doing the highest quality work. I’m proud to say we can make just about anything happen for you in your home and at your site.
We believe that a home connects deeply to the individuals and family who live there. In renovation and building, a significant amount of time, resources, and personal decisions will come into play to make that a successful connection.
Listening, comprehending and being transparently honest—when we set out to know each other, the strength of the results will reflect teamwork and trust, and what might have been simply a project becomes and enjoyable remodeling or building process that improves the client’s well-being.
Everyone is integral to our process, from our principal Jon McLoughlin as lead on all projects, to you, the client, leading the way with your vision. We believe every room in each project should feel like it was conceived for you and your family, not simply for the sake of art or the budget. For example, if historic preservation plays a role in your homes existing condition or design, we can ensure that it becomes an integral part of your living space.
From Jon McLoughlin
In my studies, I came across this quote from John Ruskin, an English writer, lecturer and art critic, who lived from 1819 to 1900. Hallomoon Construction aims to do the finest work possible, and Ruskin’s thoughts go a long way towards describing our business philosophy.
“It’s unwise to pay too much, but it’s worse to pay too little. When you pay too much, you lose a little money. When you pay too little, you sometimes lose everything, because the thing you bought was incapable of doing the thing it was bought to do.
The common law of business balance prohibits paying a little and getting a lot—it can’t be done. If you deal with the lowest bidder, it is well to add something for the risk you run. And if you do that, you will have enough to pay for something better.”
– John Ruskin
I look forward to working with you!
