Sound! That is exactly how I would describe every aspect of the work and relationship with Kyle O’Neal and his staff at Sound Construction. When choosing a builder for our custom home in Brigands Bay, we did not take the process lightly. We narrowed our choices of builders down to 3 based on referrals and locality and interviewed each, contacted 3 to 5 references, requested a bid based on architectural drawings, and saw 3 of their projects consisting of construction that was: new; built within the last 10 years; and older than 15 years, to determine quality and craftsmanship. Although the other contractors had positive attributes, Kyle O’Neal stood out above the rest due to his strong reputation, the responsiveness of he and his office staff, the quality and durability of his construction and his straight forwardness.

Williamsburg, VA

I have been visiting the Outer Banks since I was a child and have stayed in many rental houses. The house that Kyle built for me is a one-of-a-kind home. The quality of the craftsmanship is remarkable and with each trip there I see something new that impresses me. Because of Kyle's quality work, I am confident that this house will be in fantastic shape 30 years from now when I retire in Avon. Read more...

You were someone we could trust. We could trust both your honesty and your judgment in all those little decisions that came up along the way. You had a great sense for what was important to both of us and for the rental market. We saw quality work throughout every phase of the construction of our home, and we felt we really got our money's worth. Read more...

Wes and Christine Hutchinson
Wallingford, PA

Kyle began construction of my home in October 1997 and it was completed in May 1998. I closely followed every step and every detail. We did some unusual finishing details and trim that all turned out wonderfully; I could not be happier. Kyle held true to his word and his reputation. He had done an incredible job of building the home I had dreamed of all those years. Read more...

Southern Pines, NC

We are left with the impression that this is not just a job to you, that you took on this project as if you were building your own home and your 'hands on' approach alleviated any concerns that we ever had about building a house on the Atlantic Coast and being our of state. Read more...
