“We have owned our property on Birch Island in Thompson Lake for more than 20 years and always dreamed that someday we would build a log cabin there. Rick Micklon is a large part of the reason that dream is now a reality.

There were many difficulties and challenges with building on an island and with working through all of the issues related to ensuring we received the appropriate approvals and complied with all the requirements of shoreland zoning.  Rick’s broad experience and deep relationships at the state and local level were essential in guiding us through the process and making sure that everything came off without a hitch.

Once construction began Rick and his son Kabe were tireless and extremely creative in overcoming every logistical issue and in efficiently managing and coordinating all of their sub-contractors. No detail was too small for them to be on top of.

Because the vast majority of the work was done while Niki and I were at our other home in Michigan we needed to be able to have absolute trust and confidence in our builder. Rick and Kabe have earned that and more. We were always kept fully informed as each step in project unfolded and we have been absolutely thrilled with the result.

Most importantly now that Rick and Kabe have helped us to realize our dream they have become our very good friends. They are great people and true professionals. When we decided this year to do some expansion work on our cabin we never even considered talking to someone else or putting the project out to bid. We simply wouldn’t want to work with anyone other than Rick and Kabe on our Birch Island home."

“It is our pleasure to write this letter of reference for Rick Micklon, owner of Maine Building and Development. When my wife and I decided to move to Cape Elizabeth, we were fortunate enough to find a lot on which to construct our new home. We then began our search for not only a quality builder, but someone who could grasp what we were trying to achieve in the design and construction of our ‘Maine Cottage.’

We came by Rick by way of recommendations and upon first meeting the chemistry was immediate. Ricks considerable intellect and experience in every facet of home construction and land development was almost secondary relative to the manner in which he strived to identify what our vision of the new home would be. This was truly a consultative process with many, many questions being asked by Rick in order to completely understand our vision.

From the site work on a challenging lot, to aiding us in the design to the final details of door knobs I can’t image a process being better managed and in such an amicable manner.

I think the proof is in the product, come visit our home anytime.”

"Maine Building and Development constructed our beautiful new home in Kennebunk, Maine. Rick Micklon is a highly skilled General Contractor who assembled a group of professional men and women to handle all aspects of the construction. Rick guided the process from start to finish with a level of professionalism that was remarkable. He spent time with us guiding us along through every aspect of the process. His level of expertise made it a joy to work with him as we were very much hands on in the building process and he was always available to answer every question we asked no matter how trivial. This is our dream house and Rick knew that and treated us with an unsurpassed level of caring and compassion.

We would recommend him and have recommended him to friends who are planning renovations or new construction. Over the years we saw the work of numerous other general contractors and there is no comparison to the high quality of our home to the others. Rick produces an exceptionally high quality product and we are happy to be included in his stable of satisfied customers."

"Our commercial renovation was almost a two-year process for our General Contractor, Rick Micklon. Rick’s expertise in building codes, both on a town and state level, proved invaluable in successfully navigating what needed to be accomplished and in specifying the right subcontractors/products to meet our budget and renovation needs. At one point, during the project, there was over 15 subcontractors involved, which in itself was extremely overwhelming and challenging. Rick and Kabe never once had issue with the amount of travel, meetings, and telephone conferences it took to complete the project. The project took longer and was more difficult, due to winter weather conditions; in the end, our building was transformed and the quality of workmanship was outstanding. If you have a building project need, Rick’s integrity alone will make you select him as your general contractor."
