Clever Kitchen Remodels

We love San Carlos and it’s easy to see why you’d rather live here and remodel your home than move somewhere else. However, many homes here still have old, outdated, and cramped kitchens. You can fix cramped countertops, closed layouts, and outdated styles with a detailed remodel.

Kitchen remodels have the reputation of boosting home value, and yours can certainly do that. However, we believe that you should also love to live in it and get the exact style and features that you need to enjoy it today.

Our kitchen renovation team can work with any style you like, including farmhouse chic, midcentury modern, minimalist, contemporary and more. If you find custom ideas that inspire you, we can add them. We always seek to bring fresh, exciting ideas of our own to your kitchen remodel design. We can install:

  • Kitchen cabinets and custom cabinetry
  • Kitchen hardware
  • Countertops
  • Granite
  • Sinks
  • Tile
  • Backsplash
  • Kitchen fixtures
  • Lighting
  • Backsplashes
  • Flooring

We will look at your space and help you to consider your options. Are you looking to reconsider how your kitchen is laid out? Do you prefer a galley kitchen, a peninsula kitchen, or an open plan? Do you want an island in your kitchen? Do you need more storage? Do you entertain a lot or a little? We can help you make the best use of your space for the budget you have. You have many possibilities. We can create a whole new look for you and you won’t even recognize the space as your “old” kitchen.

Luxury Bathroom Remodels

It is easy to take your bathroom for granted, so you may be surprised at how big of an impact a bathroom remodel can have on your daily life, your feelings about your home, and its market value. Bathrooms are the main space where people want to splurge a bit on the luxury features that can comfort or energize them. Or splurge on the features that help them use less water and further their other values. Take the opportunity to do more than correct water damage or update the bathroom to this decade’s style. Get a truly valuable space that offers you the kind of life you want. We can install:

  • Bathroom vanities
  • Sinks and  faucets
  • Toilets & bidets
  • Combination tubs & showers
  • Individual tubs & showers
  • Bathroom fixtures
  • Flooring
  • Tiling

We can help you to decide if you want traditional or modern fixtures. What sort of lighting would work best in your space? Are heated floors an option for you? We will work with your ideas to create your ideal space within your renovation budget.

New homes represent a new era of family life. When done well, a custom home will enable the lifestyle you’ve always wanted. We strongly believe that they should be well-constructed so that they can be passed down or sold for exceptional value. Trust us to do it right.

Building a custom home offers numerous benefits, tailored to meet the specific needs and desires of the homeowner. Here are five compelling reasons to consider building a custom home:

1. Personalization: One of the most significant advantages of building a custom home is the ability to personalize every aspect according to your preferences. From the layout and architectural style to the interior design, fixtures, and finishes, you have complete control over the design process. This allows you to create a living space that truly reflects your lifestyle, taste, and personality, ensuring maximum comfort and satisfaction.

2. Optimized Space: Custom homes are designed to maximize the efficient use of space, taking into account your family’s unique needs and priorities. Whether you require extra storage, dedicated workspaces, or specialized rooms such as a home gym or media room, you can customize the layout to optimize functionality and convenience. This ensures that every square foot of your home is utilized effectively, enhancing both comfort and usability.

3. Quality Construction: Building a custom home allows you to select high-quality materials and workmanship, ensuring superior construction and durability. You have the freedom to choose the best building materials, energy-efficient features, and construction techniques that meet your standards and budget. This results in a home that not only looks beautiful but also stands the test of time, requiring minimal maintenance and repairs in the long run.

4. Energy Efficiency: Custom homes can be designed with energy-efficient features and sustainable practices to minimize environmental impact and reduce utility costs. You can incorporate technologies such as solar panels, energy-efficient appliances, insulation, and smart home systems to optimize energy consumption and reduce your carbon footprint. By building a custom home with eco-friendly features, you can enjoy long-term savings on utility bills while promoting environmental sustainability.

5. Location and Lifestyle: When building a custom home, you have the freedom to choose the perfect location that suits your lifestyle and preferences. Whether you prefer a rural retreat, suburban neighborhood, or urban environment, you can select a site that offers the amenities, scenery, and community atmosphere that align with your lifestyle goals. This allows you to enjoy the benefits of your desired location while customizing your home to enhance your quality of life.

Overall, building a custom home offers the opportunity to create a unique living space that perfectly matches your vision, preferences, and lifestyle, providing long-term satisfaction and enjoyment for you and your family.

The timeline for building a custom home can vary significantly depending on factors such as the size and complexity of the project, the availability of materials and labor, as well as any unforeseen delays or complications. However, here is a general breakdown of the typical steps involved in the construction process and their estimated durations:

1. Pre-Construction Phase:
– Planning and Design: This phase involves working with architects, designers, and engineers to finalize the home’s design, layout, and specifications. Depending on the complexity of the project and the extent of customization, this stage can take anywhere from a few weeks to several months.
– Permitting and Approvals: Obtaining necessary permits and approvals from local authorities can take several weeks to a few months, depending on the jurisdiction and the complexity of the project.

2. Site Preparation:
– Excavation and Grading: Clearing the site, excavating for the foundation, and grading the land typically takes a few weeks, depending on the size and condition of the lot.
– Utility Installation: Installing utilities such as water, sewer, electricity, and gas lines can take several weeks, depending on the distance to existing infrastructure and any site-specific challenges.

3. Foundation Construction:
– Footings and Foundation Walls: Pouring concrete footings and foundation walls usually takes a few days to a couple of weeks, depending on the size and complexity of the foundation.

4. Structural Framing:
– Framing: Erecting the structural framework of the home with lumber or steel typically takes a few weeks, depending on the size and complexity of the structure.

5. Exterior Work:
– Roofing: Installing the roof covering, such as shingles or tiles, usually takes a few days to a week, depending on the roofing material and the size of the roof.
– Exterior Finishes: Applying siding, brick, stucco, or other exterior finishes can take several weeks, depending on the size and complexity of the home.

6. Interior Work:
– Rough Plumbing, Electrical, and HVAC: Roughing in plumbing, electrical wiring, and HVAC ductwork typically takes a few weeks, depending on the complexity of the systems and the size of the home.
– Insulation and Drywall: Installing insulation and drywall usually takes a few weeks, depending on the size and complexity of the home.
– Interior Finishes: Installing flooring, trim, cabinetry, countertops, and other interior finishes can take several weeks to a few months, depending on the level of customization and the availability of materials.

7. Final Touches and Completion:
– Painting and Final Details: Applying paint, wallpaper, and other final touches usually takes a few weeks, depending on the size and complexity of the home.
– Punch List and Inspections: Completing any remaining tasks, addressing punch list items, and scheduling final inspections can take a few weeks, depending on the scope of work and any required corrections.
– Move-In: Once all inspections are passed and any remaining tasks are completed, the home is ready for occupancy.

Overall, the construction of a custom home typically takes anywhere from six months to over a year, depending on the factors mentioned above. However, it’s essential to work closely with your builder and project team to establish a realistic timeline and monitor progress throughout the construction process.

ADU Construction

Additional Dwelling Units (ADUs) have become increasingly popular among homeowners. Perhaps you are looking to move your elderly parents closer to you. Maybe your grown child can’t afford to fully move out, but could use their own space. A home office with full amenities is a dream for those working from home. Additional income from a rental would be an added bonus. These are just a few of the reasons to consider an ADU. The addition of an ADU can increase the resale value of your home in the years to come.

What is the difference between an addition and an ADU? Typically, an addition becomes integrated into the existing home and only adds additional space, usually in the form of a bedroom or even a bathroom. ADUs offer separate spaces in conjunction with existing home. Building an ADU requires adding a kitchen, a bathroom, and most of the elements of a full-sized house. We have the skill and experience to add legal, high-quality ADUs to homes.

Most ADUs change their purpose over time, so it’s important to have a sturdy, flexible space that also looks great on your property. Our team excels at looking ahead to your ADU’s long-term use and matching architectural styles to your home, so you’ll always have the space you need.

Why A General Contractor ?

General contractors are those that oversee construction projects. They are different from specialized contractors, like electricians or new home builders, who have a small range of skills or only tend to take on one kind of project. General contractors are often more sophisticated as companies. They have a wider network of connections to other specialized contractors and usually attract the top talent in the area as staff. The leaders in general contracting companies will coordinate the work of others and see the project through, often from the earliest design phase and excavation down to the last inspection.

We see to:

  • Flooring
  • Painting
  • Cabinetry
  • Fixtures
  • Lighting
  • Plumbing
  • Construction
  • And more

As a general contractor, we have exceptional staff with a wide talent pool to pull from. This allows us to coordinate the work on major projects, provide cost estimates for whole projects, and be the driving force that sees the work through.

Commercial Construction

When it comes to commercial work, timelines and quality are both equally important for all new construction. From restaurants and retail to offices and spas, we’ll be the dream contractor you wish you’d always worked with.

Building a new space for your business requires upfront investment. You want to be sure your budget is handled well and that your project stays on its timeline so you can generate revenue when you expect. We’ll follow through on your project’s quality and timeline.

Updating your existing commercial property can improve its value, the kinds of tenants you attract, or the overall atmosphere of your space—all of which leads to your success. We’re an asset-minded team that will complete your remodel to high quality standards.

We work with:

  • New commercial construction
  • Commercial remodeling
  • Office spaces
  • Restaurants
  • Spas
  • Apartment buildings
  • Painting
  • Flooring
  • And more

From interior and exterior painting, to making your space more efficient for your needs. Give us a call today to discuss your options.
