Lisa’s crew were cooperative, pleasant and prompt. Our total experience was A++ and so is the finished product!

Lisa, your team built a handicap ramp for my brother, Billy, and I just wanted to say the work your guys did was a fantastic job and I really appreciate the work you guys do. A few of my friends came by to knit pick the work to death and couldn't find a thing wrong with it, so we really appreciate the work. Thank you!

Lisa and her guys were so awesome. They wanted my dreams and vision to go into every part of my handicapped wet bathroom project. It came out even better than I could have dreamed it to. The guys were so good and made my new construction project a pleasure instead of the usual nightmare. I hated when they left. It doesn't look like a handicapped bathroom it looks like a spa bathroom. By the way they were the lowest bidder and offered more than my highest bidder. I could go on and on how wonderful Lisa and the guys were. You will NEVER be sorry if you chose this company. I promise...

I have dealt with contractors for fifty plus years and my recent experience with Lisa Cole is like a light having emerged from a dark tunnel. Her dedication to serving the physical needs of clients goes far beyond the normal contractor-client relationship. Restore Independence is the only company that I would use for future home alterations.John F. R, Nashville, TN 


I am thankful for the new roll in shower that was provided for me through state funding. It is just so easy to bath Laura now. I want to thank Lisa Cole and her team for such a wonderful job. Contact her if you need something done. I loved having a woman contractor! LOL

I have used Lisa’s company for several projects, large and small, waiver-funded and otherwise. In every case, I received her personal attention, clear explanations of what was needed, and quality work, all at a fair price. I can recommend her company with enthusiasm.

I felt good knowing that my mother was safe while Lisa's crews were working at her home. Now that the project is complete, it is priceless to know that my mom is safe.George F, Nashville, TN



I appreciate the professionalism demonstrated by Lisa and her crew. She is responsive to the member’s needs, completes work in agreed upon timelines, provides quality workmanship and is available for follow-up, as needed. Thanks for all you do!

Mid-TN Supported Living is an agency that helps support persons with disabilities in their personal homes in the Middle Tennessee area. Over the past two years we have worked with Lisa and her company Restore Independence for several major home modification projects. We have found her work to be of the upmost quality. She communicates very well and follows through on her commitments in a timely fashion. We would not hesitate to use her again for any needs we have to make homes accessible and safe.Michelle M, Antioch, TN


I have used the services of Living Homes and Lisa Cole on two separate occasions (2005 and 2009) and have been extremely pleased with the quality of workmanship and the professional manner in which business is conducted.
Being a woman, I was most impressed when I was given a work schedule after the signing of the contract that included the day by day scheduling along with time allocation and names of subcontractors. Lisa Cole gives a whole new definition to communication!!! She is my kind of builder!
Since the completion of the rebuild if there has been any small problem whatsoever, Ms. Cole has responded immediately. Our new home is beautiful and actually was completed ahead of schedule, which is virtually unbelievable!!!
I hope that I have the opportunity to work with Living Homes and Lisa Cole again in the future!

Relatively soon it’s going to be one year since we purchased our home from you! The saying is true – Time flies when you are having fun!
We did not want the year to close without letting you know how appreciative we are with the follow-up you have provided us over the past year after the sale of the home. Even as we looked at the house prior to the purchase we could clearly tell your attention to detail is no less than extraordinary. As you know, this is our fourth home purchase, and we appreciate the attention you placed in ensuring that the little corners of the home not only looked pretty, but served a useful purpose as well; this is not found in many new homes today.
As it is expected when buying a new home, the few issues that we had were immediately taken care of by you. As an example, you immediately installed a 30 AMP plug in the garage so that we could provide power to our coach. You did this at no additional charge and it was completed before we even knew it. You have always been available at any time for us, and you have resolved every issue in a very friendly and speedy manner. Your concern and attention are also evident in your frequent visits to the other two homes in our development to ensure that everything is being taken care of properly.
Needless to say, we are very grateful to have you as our builder and on-going contractor. Your many recommendations and accommodations have been a blessing for us, particularly when coming from California to Tennessee, where things are a bit different. This type of attention and caring does not automatically come with the purchase of a new home; we believe we got lucky it was you, and we most heartily recommend you to anyone interested. You have made things easy and fun!
We are glad to have you as a friend, and wish you the very best of success in your endeavors.
