“Lake State Building has done many extensive projects for me.  The owner, Tim May has been creative and innovative in solving some really difficult issues. The end product is always beautifully done.  Tim will not settle for anything less than perfection. His crew is skilled and professional. Lake State Building will always be my “go to” team for all my projects. “

Cindy DeGalan

 “I have contracted with Lake State Building on several projects that varied from easy fixes to OMG how do I repair this? Tim has always given excellent advice as well as great quality work with a budget conscious eye. I trust Tim and his hard-working crew with my home and my time. I don’t want to hire anyone else”



We highly recommend Lake State Building. We needed more living space and Tim walked us through our options. With his knowledge, ethical building practices, and professional experience, Tim gave us a unique vision in remodeling our basement. 

We’re more than happy with the results and with the workmanship of Tim and his crew. All were highly skilled and professional. As an added bonus, they were a joy to welcome into our home for the duration of the job!  We also appreciated the updates and quick communication response with Ashley in the Lake State office. 

We’ve recommended Lake State to our neighbors and friends who are also very pleased with their work. We would definitely hire them again.
