Homeowner’s Voices:  The Goodwyns

Christopherson Builders Client Photos

We are so very happy to announce that our clients, Susan and Peter Goodwyn, have just moved into their brand new Christopherson home just 19 months after their prior home was lost in the 2020 LNU wildfire.  We broke ground on their project in Vacaville, and last week our Solano County team created a festive and heartwarming ribbon-cutting ceremony to finally welcome Susan and Peter back home.

For Christopherson Builders Project Manager Brandee Rakowski, the key ceremony held extra special meaning:  “I was there for them to clean up their home after the fire.”, said Brandee.  “This is a hard thing to do, meeting people who lost everything and let them know you’re there for them!  Then how awesome is it that I was there to give them their new home keys!  What an amazing circle.  Congratulations to the CB team for making this happen for them.  They are awesome people, so thankful, and so deserve to enjoy after all they endured through this!”.

Standing on their front porch, Susan and Peter are pictured happily holding up the welcome mat that they’ve been looking forward to laying down on their threshold.   After the welcome home, Susan wrote, “Just a quick note to say thank you for building us a beautiful home.  We are moved in and working to buy furniture, etc. since we lost everything in the fire.  A bit overwhelming but also fun.  We really love the house and being back in Mix Canyon.  Our kids are also thrilled to be coming back up to Mimi and Papa’s house!”.

Susan and Peter, we are touched by your kindness and so blessed to have been able to help you and yours come home again.
