New to construction and have a project in the works?

We will show you where to start and what to expect during your project while all the time saving you from costly mistakes.

Additions and in-law units

Additions and ADUs sound deceptively straightforward. Not in the Bay Area. Not with current building codes. Not with current labor costs. We navigate you through the whole process to avoid costly mistakes.

Age-proofing your home

If you want to stay in the same house in retirement, or if you have a parent living with you – let us guide you through the process of making your home flexible to the future needs.

New home construction

If you are looking for a high performance home that has sustainability features embedded, get our team on your side to benefit from the smart solutions for years to come. And avoid costly mistakes.

We are not a general contractor.
We are your advocate in the construction industry.

Contractors make money by billing homeowners for their services. The bigger the bill – the better for the contractor. They gain nothing by saving your money.

We have no conflict of interest with the homeowner. Our fee is fixed and depends on scope, not on budget. We charge a success fee for saving your money.

If your time is better spent away from the construction site - hire us to manage your construction projects. Perfect solution for those who work hard, travel often but appreciate a good home.

Yes, you can learn it all by the usual method of trial and error.

Or you could let us move you up the learning curve, saving time and money.


We know where to start. 

We will guide you from start to successful completion of your project.

Modify with confidence. Join our events to learn HOW. Looking forward to meet in person.
