Eugene Home Builders Provider Name Locked
has turned my 1950's home into a unique and lovely place to be. He works with you to evolve ideas and then adds his magic touch. He has attractively updated and made functional every room in my house, as well as created a gorgeous piano studio for me and remodeled an apartment that I rent out. He creatively designed a patio that I love, added a cement floor to my garage and created steps going down my steep driveway. He is imaginative, artistic and able to deal with problems that others would not want to touch.

He was extremely knowledgeable and very busy. He came to my house anyways to help me find someone to work on my house quickly. He had a good handle on things.

is a nice person to have working in our home as well as an excellent craftsman. He is friendly, professional, a hard worker and guarantees his work. He did not exceed his bid costs, was timely in his starts and finishing of the projects and was tidy in his cleanup.

As we were moving in from out of town, initial work was coordinated via phone. When we arrived, interior of the new home was completely masked off in preparation for painting.
Eugene Home Builders Provider Name Locked
made several suggestions regarding the high ceilings, reflected light surfaces and pointers to keep in mind from his recent experience of being in the home for the past few days (seeing how the light changed during the day) and we headed to a recommended paint store and selected our color choice. The next day,
Eugene Home Builders Provider Name Locked
purchased all needed paint and a crew of three began work in earnest. Three days later they wrapped up the work, left no waste behind to clean up and the work was beautiful. Additional work in the next few weeks included pressure-washing the sidewalk/driveways, and remodeling the office doors and adding a new skylight. Next week it will be exterior paint and he is due any minute to begin pressure-washing the house exterior. Very friendly, outgoing, personable, reasonably on time (other jobs in the works - no wonder with his skill and ability to line up solid crew members too), and excellent workmanship. He's a native Eugenean too!

RBV did it all for us, and did it while we were living across the country! We bought the site and their architects worked with us to design an affordable, "green", and wheelchair accessible home that reflects both our personality and western
Eugene Home Builders Provider Name Locked
. Most design meetings were held by phone, with most drawings sent by email. RBV architects "got" that we wanted a small home that fit in with the site, not an excessive over-the-top home. The layout is highly functional and still a work of art in how it creates volumes of space. Because RBV is a design-build firm, they were able to give us realistic construction estimates of the various design options, which really helped us stay close to our budget and evaluate trade-offs when somethings went over-budget(hey-after Hurricane

, the price of concrete and lumber sky-rocketed!). The entire 2-year design and construction process was "no drama." The house was completed several months ahead of schedule. We liked them so much that we had them return a year later to add on a small screen room. The only construction problem was part of one wall that did not have enough flashing. RBV fully honored their warranty: they took off the siding from the entire wall, dried out the plywood and killed the mold, and installed a full rain curtain between the old wall and new siding. A year and 2 major storms later, the problem is obviously solved. Another thing in RBV's favor is that the subcontractors and the City Permit office likes working them, too. All around, a pleasant experience.

The project was completed in a timely manner: I signed the design contract on March 8 and the construction contract on April 4. The room was ready for use on June 16 although there were remaining details such as caulking here and there, adjustment to the wall bed mechanism, door locks, and paint touch-ups that continued throughout

. My project manager was excellent: she explained everything clearly and responded to my questions and concerns promptly. She oversaw all subcontractor work, even staying in close contact with the contractors I had hired to do the interior painting and exterior stucco work outside the scope of the RV contract. She kept the project on schedule and except for one week, work continued steadily. My one complaint regarding oversight was during a period when she was away and the open garage was left unprotected for a few hours, but the problem was quickly remedied with a phone call. I am completely happy with the results: all workmanship is excellent. However I give them a "C" for price because they are expensive and their time & materials mode of billing, plus the requirement that the client pay for one-third of the savings should the project come in under bid -- sneaks up on you even though it is clearly spelled out in the contract! And, in my case, the original estimate (not bid, but cursory estimate) was considerably lower than the bid turned out to be. Nevertheless, if you can afford them and want good work,
Eugene Home Builders Provider Name Locked
is a good choice.

This was a terrible experience. I was cheated out of thousands of dollars. They are slick, like a used car dealer and fixed up the contract so they could leave me hanging after taking my money. They dug up my front yard, made up a bunch of worthless drawings (that's what an architect said; not just my opinion) took my money, delayed over and over again, and then pulled out without building anything. Since it was design and they never built anything, the
Eugene Home Builders Provider Name Locked
CCB won't sanction them (even though they dug up my yard and left it). They "promised" to help a real contractor "interpret" their drawings, sure, just like a used car dealer will "fix" things if the car breaks down. Of course, no competent builder will follow plans that are not made by a registered architect. Be warned and don't believe all their slick advertising! They know how to "play the game" just like a used car dealer, but they do NOT deliver on their promises.

I bought this condo in October, 2011, while living 3000 miles away, and wanted it modified so that a family member who has a walker could visit at Christmastime. I have known
Eugene Home Builders Provider Name Locked
as one of the best designers and builders in
Eugene Home Builders Provider Name Locked
for many years and called them first; I did not get other bids because of their reputation in town. After calling and explaining the problem, their designers quickly made excellend drawings that were used by the condo board to approve the modifications to the exterior..
Eugene Home Builders Provider Name Locked
was great about responding to board concerns, and the final job on the new sidewalk, with ramp up a few steps, and the very attractive and easy to use threshold is wonderful.
The bathroom modification also went well, with, again, a couple of ideas floated in design stage. The bathroom was under the stairs and extremely small, but enlarged to allow a wheelchair or walker by taking some space from the adjacent below-stair closet.
Some effort to contain cost was made (e.g.
Eugene Home Builders Provider Name Locked
small door to closet), but the job was bid at time and materials with a low ball on the amount of time the supervisor wound up spending... there were some other things that seemed to add to the cost so that this was almost 2X my anticipated cost. However, the extra time of the supervisor was really great and I appreciated his effort to make sure everything was done by Christmas (which it was)... I was consulted in detail on some finishing aspects of the job (e.g. wall color and finish) and on others I had to be kind of pushy to get a say (hardware, floor). If you have a small job like this, and want to be able to review styles and options for things like drawer handles and flooring, be sure to make time to do it, and be sure the contractor knows you want those options ... and,if possible, their help in finding options. There is also one touch-up paint item on the vanity that still is an off-color paint, but I suspect they would fix that if I kept pursuing it; my residence out of town made me miss the 12 month 'warranty' deadline.
Finally, I appreciated being able to leave some finish work to do myself (e.g. a friend and I installed hand-made tiles for the splash above the vanity), the willingness to recognize and fix things that didn't quite look right after we got going (e.g. old fan in bathroom looked pretty grungy after the new paint, and their electrician found a new one that fit the spot nicely), and, MOST WONDERFUL, the rapid and prompt response to emails and phone calls from the supervisor... He was clearly committed to getting things done well and also done so my mother could actually come into the condo for Christmas; this meant the job was on a top priority list for a few weeks and he was there daily for much of that time. Also, the flooring and electrical contractors they used were really spectacular.. very professional, skilled and creative.
I definitely recommend RV for a small remodel like this, but be sure you understand the pricing, and that they know exactly how much input you want to have. It was nice to have a company I could trust to do the work when I was miles away. Also, if we had been building a house, I am sure I would have been consulted on hardware in great detail, for this smaller job (and with my time constraints), I did need to be pretty proactive.

responded to my request for a carport demolition and rebuild on our home. He replied quickly to my query, and gave an adequate estimate of time and materials.
Eugene Home Builders Provider Name Locked
was very responsive to small detail changes, and we used email to get most of our communication done, which I appreciate due to a busy working life.
His attention to detail was great, and all of my neighbors have commented how nice the carport looks (noting that they can look "redneck" and not so attractive") and I agree.

In 1994
Eugene Home Builders Provider Name Locked
was one partner of the design/build team, Camas Construction.
Eugene Home Builders Provider Name Locked
took care of the design side and helped oversee the construction. We worked with
Eugene Home Builders Provider Name Locked
to design our house, and we found the process fun and relatively easy.
Eugene Home Builders Provider Name Locked
's designs are wonderful, and he did a splendid job coordinating our wishes with the restrictions imposed by the site itself. He has a wonderful aesthetic sense! The result is a home that we have lived in ever since and which we enjoy daily. The house has held up extremely well, and people who come to visit are invariably impressed with the quality of light and design that are evident. I have heard many people say that building a house is the most stressful thing they have ever done, and they wouldn't do it again for anything. I remember thinking during the process, and after it was finished, that it was just tremendously fun and I would do it again in a heartbeat! I am sure that working with
