Photo submitted our 27th year in business! During the past 26 years, we are proud to have built more than 70 homes and 100 garages in Plumas County, not to mention the hundreds of remodels, additions and insurance repairs we've done as well. With the change in the economy (specifically, fewer new housing starts), my business partner (and son) Donavon and I knew we had to change our business model. We're not going anywhere, and we still build new homes, garages and commercial buildings. So, in the past year we found there was a real need to assist homeowners in making their existing homes more efficient, attractive and valuable. We've fielped lots and lots of people with all kinds of projects that might have only taken 15 minutes to several days or weeks to complete. And, if we couldn't do their job, we'd make sure to connect them with some- one who could. It's that kind of service and satisfaction that will help take us through our next 25 years!!!
