“We saw him every day during the construction period.” – Mark Walike

See All of Our Walk Through Videos

Our project has been completed for months and we are fully utilizing the wonderful space you created for us. If you recall, we met with you back in 2015 and then life, work, and kids got in the way and distracted us from following through with our project. During that down-time we fine-tuned what we had envisioned for our outdoor space. We met up again in the fall of 2016 to discuss our options. Before too long we had a design drawn up and after a couple revisions, we were good to get started in November of 2016. What had been planned as an 8-week project turned into many more months with all the rain we experienced. We were ok with it but Geoff kept apologizing even after we told him there wasn’t any rush. After all, it was winter.

I can’t say enough about how Geoff Thomas runs his worksite. I have never dealt with a contractor who pays so much attention to how the worksite is left after a day’s work. The jobsite was left clean and hosed down and everything tucked away after each day of work. That shows you how much Geoff cares about his site and how he treats his clients. This attention to detail translates to his concrete work, brick work, seat wall build, pizza oven design, and concrete counters. His work is very impressive. I have worked with many contractors over the past 35 years- owning several homes and an owner of several rental properties, and Geoff treats his business like a business. If he says he will meet you on a certain day at a certain time, you can rest assured he will be there.

Geoff checked in constantly with me regarding the progress of the build. He does this to make sure his clients are happy and to discuss any changes we may want to make along the way. He gives recommendations and isn’t afraid to try something new with a design. This communication was so appreciated. Geoff sticks to the build schedule, other than unexpected rain downpours when he can’t work at the site, like no one I have ever met. When he says he works one job at a time, that is the truth. We saw him every day during the construction period.

Our outdoor BBQ, seat island, pizza oven, seat wall and seat bench will be enjoyed for many years to come. We had 25+ people over a couple of weeks ago for my daughter’s graduation party and could have accommodated many more. The site flows so perfectly and that is because the layout was so well thought out with the initial drawings.

Lastly, if any potential clients need to see the type of work you do, send them over and I would be happy to show them our completed project. There will always be a cold beer waiting for them.

You guys ROCKED IT!!! – Marty & Miranda

  See A Video Of This Backyard

This letter is to thank all of you for the great job you did in building our outdoor kitchen. It is truly a masterpiece. You and your staff’s attention to detail were unbelievable as you made every effort to bring our dream outdoor kitchen to life. Your insight and knowledge in this field is evident in how the final product looks and feels.

Additionally, over the last 14 months we have had to rebuild our house and deal with way too many contractors. Geoff, you by far have been the most personable and patient of any of them. You and your staff were there timely and ready to answer the many questions I had along the way. The lines of communication with the GPT Team were superior and showed their dedication to providing excellence in customer service. This is not your run of the mill contractor; GPT Construction sets the bar high for all other to strive for.

I highly recommend the GPT Team as I have never dealt with a better, well organized and customer oriented contractor.

Thanks again for making our outdoor dream kitchen come to life, you guys ROCKED IT!!!

This is a letter of recommendation for Geoff Thomas, of GPT Construction Masonry & Design.

See A Video Of This Backyard

Our project involved a major backyard renovation requiring a complete tear out of our existing yard, planning, design and construction of the new yard. This includes a spa, pool, raised concrete deck with a stone veneer face and a grand brick entry, a decorative brick and stone fireplace mantle, beautiful brick and stone outdoor shower with two shelves for soap and shampoo, a large masonry bench with acid stained concrete top located across the shower, a two level yard with beautiful accent brick and 3-Rivers stone edges, a fire pit and another masonry bench for a sitting around the fire pit, all new landscaping, plants, watering system, and a drainage system throughout the backyard, lighting, wood and iron fence & rails. As you can see, this was a massive renovation for us.

We contracted with Geoff in April 2010 to help design, coordinate, and build this major backyard renovation. This job entailed creating a backyard Oasis which we now fully enjoy. We were given Geoff’s name as a recommendation from our neighbor who was also very happy with his work ethic. In addition to all stone work, Geoff helped manage and coordinate each phase of our project. He was open and accepted our input at various stages, he exhibited pride in his word, he follows through continuously, even after the completion of the project he has been back to complete minute details.

During this project, l also encountered contractors who low-bid a job in order to obtain it, later to require a “Change Order.’ That was not the case with GPT. He did not exceed the terms of the contract, nor impose change orders without mutual agreement with us in advance. I do not give my recommendation lightly. Geoff and his team have integrity and are very trustworthy.

We started the project at the end of April 2010 and finished by the first week of August 2010, a very short time considering the magnitude of our renovation. Geoff is credited with maintaining a timely schedule of all facets involved. We are very pleased with the result as well as the entire experience of working with Geoff and his crew. We hope that this letter assists your evaluation when considering Geoff as your contractor for masonry or coordinator.

Jim and Nancy

Much Love from Lori & Gary

Geoff and Paula,

It was this time last year that we got started in all the outdoor projects. We have enjoyed the new outdoor kitchen and the great steps opening to our lovely view. We are still planning a spring get together now that we are finally done with everything! Happy New Year – See you 2015

Much Love,
Lori and Gary

Thank you from Thomas Melton – February 11, 2015


l am writing this letter as a testimonial to you and your company. In the summer of 2012 your company made an outdoor kitchen for my family. We came to you with a design for an outdoor kitchen to include a fireplace and a pizza oven.

You brought back a drawing with all our ideas and a proposal for the cost of our project.

When we accepted your proposal your crew started the project when you stated.
Your crew was polite and cleaned up after every work day. My family and I were pleased with your skills as a mason and your perfectionism. Our outdoor kitchen is not only user friendly but a beautiful addition to our home.

The pizza oven is probably the coolest part of the kitchen. I have cooked not
only pizzas but enchiladas, roasts, bread and even a Thanksgiving turkey. Once the pizza oven is up to temperature the oven keeps its heat and I have been able to cook cinnamon rolls the following morning.

The fireplace is a fantastic gathering place to sit and talk with family and friends.

GPT Construction worked with Poseidon Pools and completed the brick surround
and accent wall on our pool thus tying the kitchen to the pool on opposite sides of the backyard.

We have been so pleased with GPT Construction and Geoff’s skills as a mason
that we had him make two retaining walls and a couple of planter beds after he completed our kitchen.

I would happily recommend GPT Construction and Geoff Thomas for any outdoor
kitchen and masonry needs, his work is professional and beautiful. Geoff
completed the project on time, and most importantly on budget.


Many, Many Thanks from Holly

Hi Paula & Geoff,

We are enjoying our backyard so much! We have nothing but great things to say about Geoff, the island, the furniture, everything! We are thrilled. Anytime you need a recommendation or if anyone wants to see your work, send them over!

Many, Many Thanks,

Thank you from Carl Sundahl Elementary School – May 25, 2012

Dear Geoff,

On behalf of everyone at Carl Sundahl Elementary, I would like to thank you and GPT Construction and Masonry, for your generosity in contributing your time in building a memorial bench to honor our beloved kindergarten teacher, Mrs. Leonard.

Your workmanship has exceeded all of my expectations and I am thrilled that this beautiful bench will continue to be present at the school for generations to come.

Hi Geoff,

Beautiful! We will make many wonderful memories here. Great job, thank you!

Love, love, love the fireplace!

Love, love, love the fireplace! We had our first fire Saturday night and roasted marshmellows. Thanks for leaving the extra stone and making a path. You are a master at your trade.


We can’t say enough positive things about
GPT Construction

We cannot say enough positive things about our experience working with Geoff Thomas from GPT Construction on our outdoor kitchen. Geoff worked with us on a design that fit in perfectly with our existing patio and backyard. Geoff and his team were very professional and great to work with. We have since recommended GPT Construction to friends and neighbors for their backyard projects.”

Why I choose GPT Construction

See A Video Of This Backyard

Geoff Thomas, owner-operator of GPT Construction is very detail oriented. You will first see this in his bid letter which sets the precedent from there on out. His scheduling is tight and he is very communicable every step of the way letting you know what is happening and how everything is going to play out. He is also very verbal with his crew similar to that of a coach making sure his team stays in constant sync. On most jobs there are minor “unexpecteds” … now matter how small he can see things before they happen and will let you know what can be done before he takes action so there is never any surprises. Geoff is very organized and clean. When these guys clean up at the end of the day, there is not much evidence they’ve been there other than the work that has been done.

There is nobody in our area that that will take the time or has the know how to integrate beauty and structural integrity into their work like Geoff does to ensure that the final product will be as strong as it is attractive.

As a swimming pool contractor who takes a lot of pride in what I do and strives to make customers happy, I highly recommend GPT Construction to anyone who requires a (true) mason. When Geoff and his crew are on the job, I am at ease. Geoff’s phase is extremely important to me because it’s like the icing on the cake… it’s what everybody sees. I know if I finish off one of my projects with GPT Construction, I can’t go wrong and we will get direct referral work out of it every time.

Thank you GPT Construction.

We are so glad that when we were creating our backyard paradise with Poseidon Pools that he would refer you as our mason. You are a perfectionist and we appreciate your talent as an exquisite mason designer. The stone work is so beautiful and our concrete is amazing as well. Thank you GPT Construction for an amazing work of art and design.

Compliments on the design and the quality – February 21, 2017

We chose GPT construction for our outdoor kitchen project.  As soon as I  met Geoff Thomas (owner) his passion and professionalism were evident.  We researched pre-built outdoor kitchens and got several quotes, but Geoff explained his process and the quality associated with a masonry build and we knew right away GPT Construction was the right company to choose.  

Geoff is extremely thorough and detailed from the bid process to the final build.  He took time to explain what the process entailed, and provided consulting to make sure the design met our needs.  Geoff paid close attention to detail during the build, making sure the final product was of the highest quality.  We could not be more pleased with the final result!  It is a beautiful addition to our yard, and the quality is absolutely top notch.

The timing of our project completion was close to the end of summer 2016, but we have used it almost daily even in the cold weather (recently had a super bowl party in the cold and everyone was outside around the outdoor kitchen!).  We have gotten many compliments on the design and the quality.  

There were no surprises, no hidden costs, no cut corners, and no issues at any point during the project.  It was refreshing to have a contractor who is honest, trustworthy, proficient, and executes flawlessly.  Geoff and crew showed up on time, were friendly and professional, kept the work area very tidy, and completed everything as they committed to (details and timeline).  I highly recommend GPT Construction to anyone who is looking to do a masonry project.

Thank you Geoff, Paula, and crew for making our backyard a paradise and a place for our family and friends to enjoy for many years!


Jon, Debbie, and Alyssa
