“We are grateful to Robert and Jennifer Sandoval of R Hines Construction for building our house in Picacho Mountain. Though Robert often contracts for classic Tuscan and Southwest style homes, his strong artistic abilities enabled him to integrate our many contemporary design elements into a truly outstanding home. Robert and Jennifer maintain strong working relationships with the best of the area’s subcontractors to produce outstanding quality and workmanship. Their various crews were a delight to work with, as we engaged with them through the construction process. We doubt that anyone else in this region could have executed our contemporary design ideas into a cohesive whole the way Robert Sandoval did. We absolutely love our home!”

“We are exceptionally pleased with our home and the builder, Robert Hines. Throughout the construction period, which was completed within the contracted number of months, Mr. Hines provided consistent and positive supervision of the sub-contractors, quickly corrected deviations from specifications, and held workers to his high standards. We were impressed by his attention to detail and his personal concern that our home would meet our expectations. Mr. Hines was sensitive to our preferences on the particulars of the home, yet offered his own suggestions that worked perfectly in the end result. Throughout the construction process, he added features, both to the home as well as the landscaping that enhanced the overall appearance and added safety and visually attractive supplements. Many of these added features were completed at minimal or no cost to us. After eight months of occupancy we have discovered no major deficiencies in construction or home furnishings. We were especially pleased with Mr. Hines and his staff’s cordial relationship with us throughout the construction process, and their responsiveness to our requests and occasional change orders. We highly recommend R. Hines Construction LLC for clients who desire a professional and exceptional builder for their “dream” home.”
“The house we built with R Hines Construction was our first custom home build. We were living in Minnesota at the time, and had only a few opportunities for on-site visits during the process. We are very happy with the result.
Before we started building, we needed to find a lot. Robert helped us find a great lot that might not have suited everyone but which was perfect for what we were looking to do. We started with a good design that Robert developed after discussing our goals for the house and the budget with us. There were a few rounds of modifications before we settled on a great final design which fit within our budget.
What made working with Robert exceptional was his design aesthetic and his desire to make the result better as he went along. He could have just built according to the plan and produced a really good product, but as the process unfolded he continually brought us great ideas to improve the home, both aesthetically and functionally, while still keeping an eye on the budget. He uses quality sub-contractors who produce a final product consistent with Robert’s high standards. Building this while living out-of-state was neither complicated nor burdensome for us; Robert was in contact with us and was responsive, being available for any questions or to consult on decisions that we made. He may be doing this as his business, but he loves making each project unique and something that his clients will love. We love what he built for us. Were we ever to build again (which we won’t), we would definitely use R Hines Construction.
