Colson Hosford | Director Of Real Estate And Development
I am writing this letter to thank Big Bend Builder, LLC, for the job well done on finishing the office renovations at our Champions Hall location. Within four weeks of the construction project, your company has shown diligence and dedication to finish work on time, which greatly benefited our athletic department and on-site property managers meet their deadlines during the busiest time of year. Again, I would like to express my gratitude in providing your 100% in completing this project. We would not hesitate to refer Big Bend Builders, LLC. to other organizations who are also in need of quality services from a contractor.
Tallahassee Housing Authority
Claudette Cromartie | Executive Director
The Tallahassee Housing Authority (THA) advertised for a contractor to build a three bedroom, two bathroom, two story duplex at its Springfield Apartment Community located at 1700 Joe Louis Street. Nine construction bids were submitted and Big Bend Builders, LLC. was selected based upon the Request for Proposal (RFP) qualifications. In a very professional manner, Mr. Skipper outlined his plan of action, set up site pre-construction requirements, reassessed the project and made assurance of no hidden cost over runs. His building recommendations saved the Tallahassee Housing Authority time and resources, the job was completed and a grand opening event occurred one month earlier than anticipated. THA’s Physical Grants Manager and I, without any hesitation recommend Mr. Skipper to any person or agency seeking a building partner with experience, professionalism and customer service attributes.
Coastal Vision, LLC.

Bryant Skipper, President of Big Bend Builders, LLC, acted as general contractor for the renovation of a 32-unit apartment complex located at the Tree House Apartments in Tallahassee, Fl. This was an intricate and intensive assignment and he did a superb job, finishing early. I can recommend both his competence and his honesty and would certainly use his services in the future.
Scott & Wallace LLP
Bryant came highly recommended from respected members of the community, and after our initial meeting, we trusted and hired him to renovate an existing 4,000 square foot office building in Tallahassee, Florida. As young professionals ourselves, we value honesty, productivity, and stick-to-itiveness. We found that Bryant exhibited these qualities throughout the project. He provided a detailed job estimate and schedule to follow in order for our project to be completed on time and within budget. He demonstrates consistent follow-through on all work-related tasks and is dedicated to provide an incomparable service to his clients. Bryant is conscientious and goal-oriented. He always goes above and beyond what is asked of him, and consistently demonstrated a superb quality of professionalism. Quite simply, he cares.
Colson Hosford | Director Of Real Estate And Development
Bryant has worked with us on several projects, both commercial and residential, in the past and has always demonstrated a high quality of professionalism. We recently hired him to lead a 2,800 sf commercial buildout in College Town. Prior to beginning construction, he provided a detailed job estimate and schedule to follow in order for our project to be completed on time and within budget. Bryant has exceptional interpersonal and communication skills with clients and subcontractors. He is very hands on with all work-related tasks and is dedicated to provide a superior service to his clients. Ultimately, Bryant takes real pride in his work…and it shows! The Seminole Boosters strongly recommends Big Bend Builders, LLC and Bryant Skipper for any commercial or residential project in or around the local area.
Renovations + Additions
David & Paula Fountain
Bryant presented us with a detailed budget itemizing each category and the estimated total cost. Some adjustments were made throughout the project, some unforeseen and some at our request; however, the final cost was within budget. One of Bryant’s major skills is his ability to schedule with qualified subcontractors and to have each of the phases run nonstop. He was there every day making sure the work was done to his high standards. Bryant is a very detailed oriented person who takes a lot of pride in his work, never, accepting anything but quality work. Thanks to Bryant’s hard work and dedication, the project was finished within the estimated time frame. We are very satisfied with his work and the finished project. We would not hesitate to recommend Bryant to anyone needing a skilled contractor.

It is with genuine pleasure and satisfaction that I recommend Big Bend Builders as your custom home builder and/or remodeler. We had a lengthy list of specific wants and desires. Bryant Skipper helped us from beginning to end and every step along the way to realize our dream through expert planning, craftsmanship and design. No request was too little or over the top – he respected us and our vision. Bryant and all of his subcontractors were always pleasant, courteous and willing to problem solve. I cannot say enough good things about Big Bend Builders and neither can our friends and family when they come over and see the beautiful whole house renovation that was completed to perfection. Thank you, Bryant for helping create our dream and making it reality!

I’m writing this letter to recommend Bryant Skipper as a Construction Manager or General Contractor. I have personally known Bryant for over 20 years. I had the pleasure to work with him during the construction of my personal home. Throughout the construction process Bryant demonstrated the necessary skills needed to complete my project on time and under budget. Bryant is a very reliable person with problem solving skills that are capable of addressing and solving issues as they arise. He proved that he was able to provide the leadership and communication skills needed to complete a successful project. At the end of construction I was satisfied with my home and the level of detail he displayed to complete my project. Again, let me highly recommend Bryant Skipper for any project you may have.
Matt & Alexis Lambert
We hired Big Bend Builders to do a remodel and extensive renovation on a foreclosure. Although the house was in pretty bad shape when we bought it, Bryant helped us bring it back to life. Bryant made the process easy. He was clear with timelines, expectations and delivery. He was always easy to get a hold of and asked questions to ensure we were happy with the outcome. He offered good advice when we needed assistance making decisions. Bryant was extremely professional and demanded a high-quality work product out of his subs. He made sure our house was done ahead of schedule so we had an extra day to move in over a holiday weekend. We love our renovated home and thank Bryant for making it a great experience!
Bryant Skipper of Big Bend Builders recently renovated a 1950’s bungalow for me perfectly! From the beginning Bryant was always available for questions & any concerns. He kept me informed at every step where we were in the budget & completion. I really appreciated the respect he had for the integrity of my older home. He pays great attention to detail & was always thinking ahead! I love me new home & highly recommend Big Bend Builders.
John Chancy | Chancy Insurance
It is with great pleasure I personally recommend Bryant Skipper & Big Bend Builders, LLC. as my custom builder. Mr. Skipper has patiently walked me through both a custom home building process and another extensive, & very challenging, commercial remodeling project. The home turned out better than we imagined, we moved in on time, we added things here & there as we went, and somehow stayed within our planned budget. We got a lot more house than we ever thought possible. Bryant really made us feel like he wanted the house to be just as close to perfect as he would have his own house. Bryant sold me on the job, performed the job, and was the point of contact for every portion of the job. Communication & accountability were going to be important to me, there was never a go-between. If I ever build another house Bryant Skipper will build it.

It was a pleasure to work with Bryant and he proved himself to be a competent, honest, hardworking, and knowledgeable builder.

It is my pleasure to highly recommend Big Bend Builders, LLC and Bryant Skipper. Bryant was the lead on an addition on my home as well as for the contract on a new pool. I found the projects to be completed in a timely manner as well as within budget. His consistent presence on the work site ensured that our needs were met and the work reflected quality and attention to detail. I have worked with numerous contractors in the Tallahassee area and in my opinion, Bryant has delivered the most quality product with the best customer service possible. I would recommend him to anyone seeking a builder with experience, knowledge and professionalism.

It is with great pleasure that I write this letter of recommendation for Bryant Skipper of Big Bend Builders.

As he built our 3,500 square foot home Bryant’s eye for efficiency and useful space shone through amazingly at the end of the project. Bryant became a friend through the building process and every contractor Bryant chose to use on-site was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. We absolutely recommend Bryant for your future home building needs and would absolutely choose Bryant to build another home for us.

Dr. Michael & Elaine Ford | Elaine Ford Interior Design
I have remodeled homes and built new homes. I expect my contractor to be easy to work with, knowledgeable, innovative, available, honest and trustworthy. Bryant Skipper of Big Bend Builders went beyond my expectations. When my husband and I moved in after our recent large remodel, we did not even have a punch list. I have never met a perfectionist like Bryant. I hope to be able to work with Bryant again as I already know he will be the perfect choice.
Jamie & Katherine Boland | Boland Timber
My wife and I waited ten years to build our dream home and after all that time we still had gaping holes in what we wanted. The house needed to be perfect because we were building at our family farm with no intentions of moving. Bryant Skipper, Big Bend Builders, was key in turning our dream into a reality. Bryant had a unique perspective into what we wanted and used his knowledge as a builder to fill in our imaginative “holes” and create a wonderful house. Bryant was easy to work with and no matter how many questions and changes we came up with he guided us through to completion. I would recommend Big Bend Builders for any size home or any renovation you may be thinking about for your house.
