On Time – No Excuses
There are two reasons we can safely guarantee we will stay on schedule. First, our 20 years of firsthand experience in the construction business has given us a clear understanding of how long a project will take. It has taught us how…
- To successfully navigate the red tape in obtaining building permits, passing inspections, and other hassles.
- And when to schedule subcontractors, and how to manage them in order to stay on track.
- To avoid or account for things that can slow or halt the construction process.
Secondly, we accept only the amount of work we can keep up with, which allows us to stay on schedule and remain on the job until it is completed and you’re completely satisfied. Other companies may disappear from a job for days or weeks while they work on other, more “urgent” projects. But we don’t play “juggling” games. We know what we can handle, and we stick to it.
In short, you’ll get an accurate forecast of how long your project will take from start to completion, with certain milestones indicated along the way.
Our Unique Philosophy
Let’s face it: most businesses in this field of work are less than reliable… less than ethical… and less than attentive. We do our best to conduct our business in such a way that we stay on the good side of karma. After all, whatever you do to others always comes back to you one way or another. So why not just do good all the time, and treat people the way you want to be treated? That’s how we do business.
Often people tell us that we are so easy to work with. Our response is always the same: “Why make it difficult?”
Guaranteed Quotes You Can Count On
Our 20 years of experience insures detailed, accurate quotes you can count on. And, by the way, our rates are guaranteed in writing so you know what you’re in for before we even begin.
Wouldn’t you agree this is the way it should be?
And if you wish to have absolute control over the budget from the very beginning, we recommend our complete Design/Build Service where you decide exactly how much you want to spend from the start. That way, there are no surprises when you begin looking for a builder for your design. You know exactly how much it’s going to cost from start to finish.
Clear Communication with the Personal Touch
We’re there every step of the way—just like a consultant—to give you whatever support you need throughout the entire renovation process.
Your principle contact person will be Chris Barymow, the owner himself—not a “slick” salesperson. If requested, Chris will meet with you once a week or as often as necessary to keep you up to date on the status of the project. By the time everything is finished, our goal is to end up as friends… and not end up in court, which often happens with other less attentive builders.
Your Very Own Building Consultant
One of the ways our commitment to professionalism expresses itself is by staying up to date on building science and technology. More has changed in the last 10 years of building than in the previous 100, and we regularly read journals and attend classes, conferences, and seminars to keep up with what’s happening in building science. That means you get much more than a master builder. You get an expert consultant, working with you every step of the way to ensure your project takes advantage of the latest cost-effective building technologies
Bottom line? You get a better house at a lower price.
Energy – Efficient and Maintenance-Free Options
Because of our commitment to staying up-to-date in the world of building science, we can recommend cutting-edge energy-efficient and maintenance-free options that are often LESS expensive than traditional methods and materials. We are always advocating green construction, not just because we believe in being green… but because it offers practical and cost-effective solutions. And “Green Construction” means your home is built better than the Building Code.
So again… a better house at a lower cost. What’s not to like about it?
An Amazing Team
All of our workers are carefully vetted to insure we hire only the kind of people you feel comfortable inviting into your home. In fact, we’ve been asked several times how we managed to find such a great group of people. We’ve even had clients tell us they will miss us when we’re gone!
In addition to a thorough background check, we hire only from a narrow pool of trusted and “vouched for” family and friends of those we currently work with. Our desire is to work only with those of genuine integrity and a positive attitude.
In addition to our in-house employees, our subcontractors are carefully chosen to ensure they share our core values and commitment to excellence.

Did we mention we handle everything? That includes protecting your existing surfaces, furniture, and belongings from the construction or renovation process… a professional cleaning afterward… and putting everything back in its proper place once all is said and done.
