Hey Brian,
We are very happy with the work. We may be calling you in the future for some other ideas/plans. The work is even better than we expected. Let me know if you need anything. Thanks again,

Parker

 
Brian,

 They look beautiful, you are a true artist. Let me know when you are ready to install, my wife is looking forward to meeting you to talk about some other projects.----Mike

 
 
And this from my customers who drove all the way from Niagara Falls.
 

Hi Harry, Kris, and I are home. Arrived at 6:50PM. I've earned this beer in front of me!

Heavy rain until about 45 minutes North of Philadelphia including strong wind gusts The Arbor, and Obelisk were well behaved until this point,then they really started dancing around. The rain backed off, yet the sustained winds, and gusts on top of the hills were bad. The bungee cords saved the day!!!!!! The problem on the 476 is there's no where to pull off, (no shoulders for miles), So ...we had to back off to 40 mph with flashers until right before the tunnel where we could repair.
We had full sun, and reduced wind speeds by the New York border, and we muscled it home.

We rolled up in front of our house, just as we had at yours almost 10hrs earlier, and unloaded those beautiful works of yours. None more special than the flowers you generously offered to us. We just stood there in the garage admiring the thoughtfulness of the construction (especially the gradient of the flower heights) These will certainly be placed in our front beds, where inquiring neighbors will be told where they can get their own!

So the Arbor, and Obelisk are currently sleeping on their backs in the backyard. I'm about to go admire them again with flashlight..................They're just perfect. I want you to know how much we appreciate them. I'll have lot's of pictures to send in the coming days. My first opportunity for work should be the weekend.
I wish we had more time to talk, there's no way that was just a random crossing of paths!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
We can't thank you enough for everything................Shaun, and Kris

 
 

Thanks Brian for coming out and fixing us up on such short notice.

It was a pleasure to do business with you. I appreciate the prompt & professional service, and a quality product at a reasonable price.

Mr. Bachman designed and installed a quality railing for my father, he was prompt and true to his quotation. I did not get to meet him personally, but my Pop said he was a very nice gentleman. Thank you very much again, I will recommend you.

I asked him to do some custom work for me. He created two beautiful four leaf clovers. His work is absolutely breath taking and extremely well priced. Thank you soooo much!

--Raechel
 

We have quite a few of these amazing items that we started collecting years ago before he had the amazing larger selection he has now. We always get compliments on them and direct people to him to get their own. Our oldest son has a really neat wrench one. Can't wait to stop by for something new! The artist is super friendly and skilled beyond belief, his work obviously proves that!!

      I don't know if I was more inspired to work this Aussie wine promo by the lyrics of Jagger/Richards or by the beautiful art sculpture by Brian Bachman. Actually when I first saw Brian's Facebook post of his steel-welded Dandelion I made 2 phone calls:  1st one was to Brian to tell him I wanted to buy his piece, and the 2nd call was to Ryan Davis of Vine Street Imports asking him if he could bring in his lineup of Dandelion Wines from Australia for me to taste.

Magic happened.

Brian,
----------- from St. Davids Episcopal Church on Harvey Road suggested I contact you for some railing work on my front porch. They are very pleased with the work you did for St. Davids.
I love good references as much as my customers love good work.

Dear Brian,
I've written this recommendation of your work to share with other LinkedIn users.

Details of the Recommendation: "We hired Brian to fabricate and install a custom railing set for our front steps and porch. It came out incredibly well. The design is stunning and the work is of the highest quality. I would recommend Brain and Graydie Welding to anyone considering decorative iron work that is also functional."

 
These kind words are from the owners of CMI Electric here in Delaware.
 
 
Here's an interesting job I did in Centerville Delaware back in 2011. Not my style but the customer designed it and loved it. If it was my house I would have went with a more two dimensional railing to take better advantage of the surface area of the deck and make it safer and more visually appealing. I also wrapped a second story outdoor shower in this same design.

I LOVE everything I've seen and have complete confidence that whatever you complete will be beautiful!!! Let me know the next step to get you money and proceed with the job uninterrupted.    

 Thanks, Bill from White Oak.

 
 
Brian, Glad you enjoyed the cookies. You're a pleasure to work with. Maureen came home, and loved the result. Thanks for the great work. Look forward to finishing that repair on the front railings. -----Dave from Wilmington
 
Thanks a million, Brian. I'll keep you in mind for anybody I hear needing similar work. You do a great job and you have a great work ethic.------------Dave T. of Wilmington.
 
This is a Baltimore Oriole I made for a fan in Baltimore.

"Brian this is a masterpiece in steel!  You have outdone yourself!  Thank you so much".

You are going to have a ton of people wanting one--do you want that much business?  I can bring you a City Paper from Baltimore that everyone reads--an ad there would probably keep you busy the rest of your life, especially if you also do Ravens football stuff--their logo looks easier than the bird you made for me as does the Orioles cartoon bird.

Be in touch.  Thanks again."

Here's a railing I fabricated on site and installed at Franks Wine in Wilmington Delaware.
Tight working area but I didn't bump into any bottles or burn the floor.
These look awesome. Thanks!! --------------Frank Pagliaro
 

“Brian Bachman is very dependable, hard-working and a very talented welder. In all my past dealings with Brians participation and workmanship, my expectations were pleasantly surpassed in his helping to bring projects to successful and timely completion. As in all construction and fabrication related work, there are many complexities that occur on a day-to-day basis and I was very impressed with his cooperation and recommendations to the changes required by field conditions. I look forward to working with Brian on many future projects and I'm sure that you will be pleased in working with him as well.”

"OMG - the lawn art you donated for our October auction has been on display in the DBCC window on 11th Street since we picked it up from you.  People have stopped in and commented on it and we have given out your information. Our board members are already in a bidding war.   I have made a sign and put it on the item showing that it was donated by you and your contact info.  Do you have a flyer of your own that you would prefer us to use - we would be happy to attach it to the art?   I have also sent your link out to my friends and they have posted on their Facebooks.   The garden gate has been mounted and now resides on my living room wall - I LOVE IT.   Thank you so very much for your generosity, but mostly for your kindness."
