“Mark designed and installed clerestory windows in my living room in early 2020.
I told Mark about an idea I had for windows to bring light into my dark living room, and then he came up with several design options and worked to make it happen. He was professional and courteous every step of the way, from explaining complications that might occur during construction, to keeping me informed of the schedule, to installation and final clean up. His subcontractors and employees were well supervised and professional. The final product is just what I hoped for; the finish work is excellent and matches the rest of the room, the windows look like they have always been there, and the windows lighten up the whole room. I highly recommend Mark Barber Construction for quality, professional work.“
“We employed Mark Barber to demolish our old cabin on Payette Lake, in McCall, Idaho and build us a new one 13 years ago. The building process was so enjoyable and we absolutely love the results! Mark was easy to work with, kept us informed all through the building process, gave us enough lead time to make decisions, stayed on budget (!), and managed his sub contractors so they did not interfere with each other. Our cabin is very well built and we have had absolutely no issues. Mark was very meticulous with billing and I knew exactly what I was paying for with each check. Mind you, we lived two hours away and we still felt well in tuned to the whole process. Our grand daughter, who was three while we were building, had an apt comment when we were talking about needing something done that was not even related to building. Not being able to pronounce her R’s she said. ” Mauk can do it!” My only regret is Mark no longer lives and builds in Idaho and he “can’t do” a storage room under the deck for us! He is top notch and Arizona is lucky to have him!!“

“Our first experience with Mark as our general contractor was in 2011 when we hired him for a major addition to our existing house. Mark came highly recommended by family and friends and although he wasn’t the lowest bid we received, we were confident in his level of expertise, professionalism and attention to detail. Home renovations can be a stressful experience (especially when you have your existing roof taken off and a second story added!), yet Mark made the process as seamless as possible. From the first day on the job until the final clean up, Mark was on site, supervising sub-contractors and often completing much of the work himself. Mark is extremely detail oriented and meticulously went over each job with sub contractors to make sure the final results met our expectations. He treated our home as if it were his own.
In 2016 we decided it was time to update our 1990’s master bathroom. It had become outdated and we desired a more modern look. This time around we didn’t bother to get multiple bids, as we knew Mark was the superior choice for our home renovations. Again, we were so pleased with his attention to detail and involvement in the process from start until finish. I am home much of the time with our kids, and I so appreciated Mark’s consideration when he scheduled sub contractors to come throughout the day. I always received adequate notice and Mark would meet the subcontractors at the house to introduce him/her to me. This small step always made me feel safe.
Our bathroom remodel exceeded our expectations. He easily integrated a very modern bathroom into our more traditional existing home. Mark also came up with great ideas to help tie the project together. He even patiently taught me how to do some of the work myself, since I really enjoy painting, and always let our kids watch or “help.” At the end of the day, we were within budget and on-time.
Mark’s attention to detail, work quality, honesty, and integrity set him apart. It is without exception we recommend him as a contractor.”

“We chose Mark Barber to build a master bedroom/bathroom and office addition to our McCall home, from our architect’s recommendation. The finish product speaks volumes for Marks integrity and outstanding building expertise. Mark was great to work with in all areas. He is punctual, ethical, remains on-site during construction hours, is detail oriented, and maintains a clean worksite. We appreciated Mark’s honesty, friendly manner and talent so much that we also had him totally renovate an existing bathroom and expand and reconfigure our kitchen. The transformation was amazing. Mark also diagnosed, and was able to repair structural issues created by the original builders. When our family and friends looked for a contractor, they too chose Mark, and were more than satisfied with his exceptional workmanship. Whatever our next construction project might be, you can be sure Mark will be building it!”

“We worked with Mark building a new cabin in McCall and it was a great experience. His professionalism and attention to detail was truly amazing. My wife and myself would give him the highest grade possible and if we ever build again he will be our contractor. We have referred several people to Mark over the years and their experiences have been equally as positive.”

“Mark Barber built a beautiful house for us – and the cost even came in below his original bid. We would highly recommend Mark for any job. He is conscientious, hard-working and honest.”

“My wife and I just completed the construction of a house in McCall that we’ve talked about building for more than 16 years. I’m a builder in Hawaii and know the problems, delays and cost overruns associated with building a home and we braced for the worst and hoped for the best.
What we got in the end was a beautiful home that exceeded our imaginations. The team that built our house was lead by Mark Barber of Mark Barber Custom Homes. Mark is a general contractor with the most professional contracting skills that I have ever encountered. He built our home as if it was his own and watched every penny. His accounting is impeccable, his integrity irreproachable and he is highly respected by his peers.
Mark built our home in less than five months. 10 percent under budget with more improvements and finishes than we planned. I thank Mark every chance I get and want others to know how grateful we are to him.
Thank you for your time and energy that went into our home. Aloha!”
