What They Say

Dovetail Construction did a major 8 month project on our house. He was so easy to work with and allowed us to do some of the work ourselves for sweat-equity. There were many construction challenges along the way since the original house was built in 1900, but Gordie and his crew were creative and knowledgeable in solving them. The work was so good that we used Gordie’s services again for another major 8 month expansion project and we were delighted with that as well. I recommend DoveTail construction for your home construction projects.

On our architect’s recommendation, we hired Gordie and Dovetail for a partial rebuild of our house in 1996. When the time came in 2008 to rebuild the other half, we gladly chose Gordie again. What sold us initially was Gordie’s engagement and enthusiasm for the project. He and the crew worked with the architect, planning department, and subcontractors to solve problems as they came up. We found that their craftsmanship is top-notch, they were always pleasant to work with, and they cleaned up after themselves. As home-owners we weren’t always the easist to work with, but Gordie proved to be an excellent listener and mediator. I’d recommend them to anyone looking to do a remodel.

Gordie and the crew of Dovetail Consruction get my highest praise. From the initial contact to get a bid, through tear down of the old house, all phases of construction of the new one, and final inspection, they made this project a memorable, enriching, and highly successful experience. The aim was to build a new version copy of a 1917 Santa Cruz Craftsman house. Many complex design features of the new house had to be worked out during the construction, and decisions about upgrades were made. Gordie and his crew are exceptional problem solvers and skilled craftsmen. They are also pleasant and smart! In addition, Gordie uses subcontractors with whom he has worked over the years and whose contributions to the project were done as needed and with care. The entire project was done in a timely fashion and in keeping with expectation.
