"I have only good things to say about Mark's work, and more, about his people.
They do excellent work at a rapid pace. They always leave the site tidy. They are
always reliable, courteous and considerate. Mark's contracts are clear and simple,
and he sticks to them. Finally, having shared our living space with his crew for an
extended period, we appreciate that Mark has a knack for hiring people who are
invariably friendly and interesting."

Weakley residence - addition & remodeling
Designer: Mark Marcoplos
“When we planned a major addition to our
house, we decided to use Marcoplos
Construction for both design and construction.
We developed the design collaboratively with
Mark. He was very open to our ideas, and the
process was a positive one, with him bringing
his own design ideas as well as practical
understanding and experience with construction
techniques, green-building, and cost
management. During the construction process,
we had a 2 year old and were expecting our
second child, and the addition involved
alterations in every room as well as demolition
of the existing kitchen. Mark and his crew
were very professional and friendly, and went
out of their way to make the process as
efficient and as minimally obtrusive in our lives
as possible. The completed project has wowed
everyone who has seen it, and among the most
common comments are praise for the nearly
seamless integration of the new portions of the
house with the old and the overall wonderful
upgrade in the appearance and functionality of
