After spinning our wheels working with an architectural firm who complained about our lot and focused on challenges rather than possibilities, we switched our home building project to Noble Knights Construction Services. We gave Alan, an architect by training, a few guidelines and the survey for our sloping view lot. He turned this into our dream home.
Alan presented us with a very realistic budget and we signed the contract to have him build his design. We had no trouble getting the construction loan due to Noble Knights reputation with the bank.
The process is much easier than we anticipated. Alan serves as a guide with design decisions and steers the process to stay within budget and deliver a superior product. The subcontractors have a great working relationship with Noble Knights and seemed to be organized in such a way that everyone was productive even when more than one trade was on site. More than one of the subcontractors has commented that they really like the design and the interior features of the house and enjoy working with Noble Knights.
Once building started, we met weekly with Alan to discuss progress and make decisions. During the entire building period Alan was accessible and very responsive.
We did not experience the surprises (unrealistic budget, bad communication, poor planning) that our friends have when they have used other contractors. Our new house has turned out better than we ever expected.
And we would not hesitate to recommend Noble Knights Construction Services.Dr. and Mrs. Andrew M. Singer, M.D.
We just wanted to let you know how happy we were with the service provided by Noble Knights Construction Services, Inc; in particular, with the president, Alan VanWhy.
The service from start to finish has always been exemplary on a professional, knowledgeable, yet friendly level that far exceeds all our expectations. Alan takes the time to listen to our needs and descriptions and builds and adds his expertise making the project pretty seamless. We have given him multiple projects such as built-ins, closing in our deck, and during each project he is always reachable, and involved. Anytime we come across a home renovation project, Alan is the first person we think about. We highly recommend Noble Knights Construction.Nilesh and Jalpa Patel
To whom it may concern;
We purchased a lot in Rhea County on Watts Bar Lake primarily for our retirement years, and not being from Tennessee or knowing anyone that could design a custom lake house on our lot was troubling to say the least. The developer of the property helped us and highly recommended Noble Knights Construction for the project. We did our due diligence and hired Alan for our project. Alan is a knowledgeable and very experienced individual in his trade and provided us a reasonable price and guided us flawlessly thru the process. We are very pleased with the work he completed for us and look forward to the construction phase of this project.
Thanks again Noble Knights Construction to a job well done.
Sincerely;Laurie and Tom Eckhout
We are overwhelmingly satisfied with the deck expansion project performed by Noble Knights. We arrived at a creative design concept working with Noble Knights c/o Alan VanWhy. When my wife and I unexpectedly purchased a hot tub for the deck, Noble Knights worked with us to rearrange their schedule to accelerate the start of construction. We placed our trust in Noble Knights and left for vacation. To our excitement and great satisfaction, the deck was done and done well upon our arrival home. Noble Knights was quick to return and touch up 2 minor, cosmetic, enhancements. Feedback from my neighbors has been very positive as to the professionalism and courteousness of the work crew. The work of Noble Knights has improved our property usability and resale value, and we appreciate it daily.Lar & Kris
We worked with Alan to build our home, and this was not just any home; we had dreamed of this home for many years, since it is on family land. Alan worked hard from the beginning to make sure we had realistic expectations and that only quality people were working on our home. The thing most appreciated, though, was Alan’s professionalism. When we had a question or concern, he was easy to contact and prompt with the answers or assurance we needed. We had heard from others that building a house can be extremely stressful, but we didn’t experience that and can only assume that having Alan as our builder made the difference.Jerry and Deidre Randalls
Alan and Noble Nights did a wonderful job in collaborating the design effort, putting together a solid set of plans, helping us with lot selection and the actual construction of the home. Due to the parade of homes deadline we were working with a tight timeline and everything was finished and up to par before the parade started. Since moving in we have realized that the overall livability of the home is outstanding. We honestly love our house and would recommend Alan, Walt and the rest of the Noble Nights group to friends and family without hesitation.Will and Deb
Last year, Jane and I wanted to build our retirement home in Grande Vista Bay located in Rockwood, TN. We were looking for an architect to design our home and a reputable builder. We observed and discussed with neighbors in GVB the issues with some of the builders. Alan Van Why with Noble Knights Construction Services offered the perfect solution providing both services. Alan provides an excellent business model and solution to home construction. We live in Ohio and worked with Alan remotely for the most part on this project meeting in person approximately once a month. During each visit, Alan would pre-schedule meetings with suppliers for selections, pricing, and resolve any issue. Alan attended all meetings with us and the suppliers and assisted in resolving issues and making decisions. If pricing was an issue, Alan would take the initiative for additional bids from other suppliers. Alan is present in the field performing oversight of the subcontractors and arranging for supplies as required. Alan utilizes a web-based application called Co-construct to manage this project. This tool is excellent for communications with us and suppliers for documents, selections, finance and photos. Overall, Noble Knights Construction Services, Inc was the right decision and has been a stupendously rewarding experience.Mike & Jane
Alan was the project manager for the construction of my home. He handled everything from the initial design and revisions to the selection and purchase of materials and fixtures. There were no flaws and only a few minor details that needed attention. My family has lived in the house for years and we are still thrilled with Alan’s ability to communicate with the client. He is excellent, so the end result is just what we requested and it was within our budget.Drew K.
After interviewing several contractors, we chose Alan VanWhy (Noble Knights Construction Services Inc.) as our builder and we are so happy with the results! We had definite ideas of what we wanted and Alan’s design was exactly what we had in mind. He made suggestions which added to the custom look of our home. Alan was conscious of our budget and was diligent in finding the best quality of construction for our money. We actually stayed on budget! It was a pleasure to work with him preconstruction, during construction and post-construction. He really cares about the quality of the homes he builds and it shows!Betsy & Pete Janney
I had fired two builders without ever getting to construction and given up the idea of building my dream house when I met Alan VanWhy. He came out to my lot and actually listened to what I wanted. Then he emailed me a quick sketch that was the embodiment of those wants. Throughout the design process, he patiently listened to my suggestions and incorporated them into the plan. When it was time to build, he kept me apprised of the costs and choices during each step of construction and made still more changes for me as the house progressed. Yes, we ran a little over cost, mostly due to my last minute decisions, but the result was exactly what I’d dreamed. I don’t expect to leave my lovely home, but if I ever need to build again, Alan will be the first person I call.Kathleen and Brian Sales
My wife and I had the pleasure of initially working with Alan and Noble Knights Construction Services during the recent devastating hail storm that hit Knoxville. He and his team were very professional and courteous as they quickly expedited the completion of several hail damaged related projects. After our positive experience with Noble Knights, we then contracted Alan to design and build our dream deck and outdoor living space. This project was complete with multi-tiered level decking, granite counter-top buffet area, lighting, and the best part, a stack stoned fire place. We have truly enjoyed this area and have received numerous complements on the design and craftsmanship. Currently we are contracting Alan and his team to design and build custom bookcases for our family living area…great business as usual! We couldn’t be happier with Alan and his crew, they provide the utmost professionalism and we have given his name out to numerous friends in hopes they can have the same experience we have had. It is rare in today’s time to find someone that gives consistent quality service and professionalism, Alan and his team have this part covered…you will not be disappointed in choosing to work with Noble Knights Construction.Jeremy Burgess
Noble Knights Construction has done several jobs for us over the past two years, and we’ve been very satisfied with each one. Alan provides creative insight to every job, and his design solutions offer us more benefits and less cost than we ever expected!R. Terrell
We contacted many General Contractors in the Knoxville area for remodeling our master bathroom. One of the few return calls we received was from Noble Knights. After meeting with Alan, and ultimately choosing him for our remodel, he continues to stay in constant contact with us throughout the project, and he addresses every question and concern. We definitely recommend Noble Knights!Tim and Marsha H. – Knoxville, TN
We had a small project but that did not stop Alan from devoting considerable care and effort to our project. His thoughtfulness and listening skills were exactly the kind of qualities you expect from someone who is helping organize what can be a significant investment, something tangible that you and your family will live with for a very long time. Alan has the right contacts and subcontractors who are also as personable has he is and everyone of them was very helpful and approachable. We weren’t building a house but we were making some improvements on an undeveloped property and we are confident that when we do build Alan and his crew will do the job for us.Stephen & Sabrina Dowdy
