Everyone at Mt. Tabor Builders hopes you and your family have a fun and safe Labor Day weekend!
Labor Day is the unofficial end of summer and the start of the busy Autumn season. We know this makes some people sad (students), while other people (parents and those who hate the heat) have been anticipating this time of year for months. No matter your perspective, the Mt. Tabor staff members hope it was a great Summer and hope the Fall is even better. Then, of course the holidays will soon arrive. But let’s not get too ahead of ourselves.
Mt. Tabor‘s professional builders love working on custom home projects and home improvements during the cooler months. Other things they love are trivia questions and great feedback about their work, because it is a labor love. Below are some great facts about the Labor Day holiday and comments from a happy client.

Nice Words About Mt. Tabor’s Labor
We love to hear great feedback about our work. It makes us feel good, because we know that we have met and exceeded expectations. Here are a few words from Anne Marie:
“From the first meeting, we had the idea, but they (Willie and Royce Eby of Mt. Tabor Builders) guided us into exactly what we wanted. They took what we had and made some suggestions and adapted some things that enveloped our ideas.
Sean (Mt. Tabor Foreman) was always available to meet and talk about the tweaks being made to the project. All around from start to finish, it was an excellent experience.”
– Anne Marie of Williamsport, MD
