Recent Review: Original Review June 2012 We have a detached garage that we wanted to make into living space, including adding a bathroom. This included adding all the plumbing for the bathroom, the flooring, adding a wall, adding a french door, a window, stucco, and building a small redwood deck outside the french door. John and his crew did great job. High quality and beautiful work, the crew was friendly and professional, and John kept a close eye on the progress of the project and communicated with me as often as I wanted (he was always easy to reach). He was also very flexible as we made changes to the plans as we went along. And he came in within $1000 of the original estimate. I would definitely use him again for any major remodeling in our home. And, lastly, his estimate came in equal to or less expensive than the two other estimates I got. I have already recommended him to one friend. Btw, I forgot to mention Rolondo. He is John's design guy, who worked with us before any construction got started to work out the details of the design. He was excellent. His time was included in the $35K quote. Update: September 2014 We had a problem with a sulphur smell in the remodeled garage when we used the hot water, which had nothing to do with the work that John did. I had one plumber in and he said that we needed to replace the water heater because the heater anode was corroded and making the smell. We did this - the smell was reduced, but not gone, and then it started to get stronger again. So I emailed John, thinking that he might have some ideas, or that he would know a smart plumber. He emailed me back within 10 minutes, even though he had no heard from me in about 2 years. He got his plumber involved right away, who knew exactly what the problem and solution was. John sent his plumber over within a few days, who replaced the magnesium anode with an aluminum anode which prevented the production of magnesium sulfide. Bingo! No more sulphur smell! And to my utter amazement, John insisted on absorbing the cost of parts and labor for the job, even though it had nothing to do with the fine work that he did. I am so impressed with John's commitment to his customers. Again, I highly recommend him, and have been recommending him to friends since he did the work on our garage.
