Timeline Design + Build
Sustainable Design in San Jose
Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsSeptember 22, 2012
Timeline Design designed and build our 6,000 sq ft house. They took our ideas and made them better. As the project progressed they improved the design and solved problems as the reality of the construction unveiled ways to make it better or address issues. This was done as a matter of course, not as a way to jack up the price through change orders. Most of these changes did, in fact, not change the price. Some did require extra or different materials or effort but these only added T&M charges. We are still delighted with our house 7 years after it was completed. Timeline Design still sends people out to fix or address any issues we have as they arise. Timeline Design is an honest, committed and talented designer/builder. I can't recommend them high enough!
Santa Cruz Green Builders
Sustainable Design in San Jose
Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsMay 22, 2013
During the 13 month construction our neighbors would comment, "Your contractors are doing a good job on your house and we're impressed that they are respectful of the neighbors. I like it that they don't play loud music and clean up every day." We were happy to hear that. We are even happier with the results. As the first house in Santa Cruz County to be built (technically remodeled) to the Passive House standards, we enjoy a very comfortable temperature throughout the house AND use much less energy than similar houses in the neighborhood. The biggest challenge was the air tightness requirement for Passive House certification. This was tested with a blower door to verify that the house achieve 0.6ACH50 (131 CFM in our case) which is VERY tight. Achieving this level of airtightness in the house that was originally built in 1922, where we kept the original foundation and framing, has not been done before. Santa Cruz Green Builders also installed the first Heat Recovery Ventilator in this area. The professional who came to commission the HRV commented that our installation was one of the better ones he's observed. So, the point of this paragraph is Santa Cruz Green Builders is not afraid to take on new challenges and achieve amazing results. When you hear the words "green building" it may bring the image of a certain contemporary aesthetic to mind. But our house has the curve appeal of a nice old house -- a 1922 bungalow that has the arts and crafts styling with details in the window trims and flared skirt look on the siding. On the interior we are very happy that Santa Cruz Green Builders talked us into keeping the original floors and refinishing them. The tight grains of old fir is appealing and the polished distressed wood brings out the period style. They carefully deconstructed the house so that original base boards, doors, etc. were re-used. We also selected finishes that reflects the old arts and crafts style. When people come to our house they can't tell what's original and what's new. We like that. True to their name, Santa Cruz Green Builders walk their talk. I can continue with other elements like structured plumbing, gray water, insulation, recycling, etc. If you're curious about that please visit my blog http://http://midorihaus.blogspot.com/
Modular Remodeling and Design
Sustainable Design in San Jose
Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsMarch 10, 2022
Modular remodeling and design did an amazing job remodeling both our kitchen and master bathroom! They were always in constant communication with us, walking us through the entire process. Alan’s team work almost every day to make sure we finished the remodel on schedule. Once the job was completed, Alan went out of his way to make sure everything was just perfect and that we were completely happy with every detail. Their customer service was amazing. The best way to describe their quality of work is by just looking at the pictures yourself! They made our dream bathroom and kitchen become a reality. Definitely recommend them for any construction or remodel project!
Palo Alto Building Company
Sustainable Design in San Jose
Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsApril 24, 2019
I highly recommend Palo Alto Building Company as a general contractor. I had the pleasure of working with Mr. Chris Loops on our home renovation in 2015. I can recommend him highly and without reservation. Throughout the course of the renovation, Mr. Loops was a consummate professional. He was accurate in his initial assessment of the scale and cost of our project. He was clear in his record keeping and time log. He chose and managed the sub-contractors well. There was no better intermediary for ensuring our renovation projects were always running smoothly and at peak times. He was a great coordinator and leader with his subcontractors to follow his lead. This is because Chris exudes a level of knowledge and expertise that simply inspires trust. Our job was done with care and precision. He is a gifted carpenter and the custom cabinetry he designed and executed are perfect. What I appreciated most about Chris was his keen ability to get answers. What he did not know off the top of his head, he knew exactly where to go. I never waited more than a few minutes to hear solutions about location, equipment, cost of materials, labor and time management. With Chris on site, my day-to-day operations were always in good hands. In addition, he is extremely clean and tidy in the workplace. Chris along with his professional staff never left the worksite in disarray. They vacuumed all drywall dust daily. Mr. Loops took special care to prevent any of the job dust from trailing throughout the house. The only complexity in working with Mr. Loops is that, as he himself will tell you, good work takes time to complete. Patience is required when you work with a perfectionist. Our project took time to complete, but the estimation was 100% accurate. Palo Alto Building Company under promised, and over delivered in every aspect of the project! We had a wonderful outcome and a work of art to enjoy now.
Baron Construction & Remodeling Co.

Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsJuly 28, 2014
First they came and give us an estimate that we really liked, we signed the contract to do the kitchen floors. Before they started the job I ask them to give me a price for the complete kitchen remodeling. again we liked the price and we signed the contract (BTW they helped us with financing the job). during the process we found out the electrical wiring needs to be replaced mike gave us very good price on that so we let them do it. they also gave us 3D design rendering that was great, we actually could see how the kitchen will look like.. Roy Mike and the team where very helpful they answered all of our concerns and even when we change things around they where very understanding and helped us to make our dream come true. we where very impressed when all city inspection pass at the first time. we love how our kitchen came out, it looks amazing like it came out of a catalog, its like living in a mention. we will use Baron construction again to do our roof in the in the near future. they did exactly what they promise and above. we are extremely happy that we choose Baron construction and remodeling to do our kitchen.

We purchased a house from Aron Developer last year and we're very impressive on the high quality and great post-sale experience. 1. High quality: Aron Developer built the house with high quality materials and equipped with top brand appliances. Not to mention the whole design of the house is just terrific! 2. Great post-sale experience: Aron Developer provides 1-year warranty and they provide great post-sale experience. Many thanks especially to our point of contact Yunesh! Yunesh is polite and friendly, and very responsible and patient on helping us to solve all the issues we had in a prompt manner.
Nordin Builders, Inc.
Sustainable Design in San Jose
Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsMay 25, 2016
Nordin Builders did an extensive remodel for us. The existing structure came down, but we kept the foundation and expanded the footprint (2000 sq ft became 3000 sq ft). One of Dan Nordin's greatest attributes is professionalism, providing clear and reliable communication throughout the project. The workmanship was excellent and our timeline was adhered to, finishing the WHOLE house remodel in 11 months.
MacLeod Design & Construction
Sustainable Design in San Jose
Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsOctober 12, 2016
MacLeod D&C just finished rebuilding our house after a fire completely destroyed it. Other than taking longer than predicted, the project was a total success. We love the result. The design was not easy to build - odd angles all over the place and built over a swale that required a complex foundation. It took a lot of care and patience on Ian's part and the skills of several highly competent subcontractors to pull it off. Ian's professionalism, skill, and good humor made the project work - and kept us sane in the process. His ongoing relationships with the architects and his sub contractors kept communications problems to a minimum. We would definitely hire him again.
