These are the folks that helped transform our home. Say hi from Chris and Christine at 71 Hilltop Drive.
CONTRACTOR. Devin Fisse at Southern Exposure Construction.Mountain View, CA (650) 960-6936. http://www.secbuilds.com
Devin did our upstairs bathroom and then our big 2nd project (exterior, decks, downstairs, dining, decking. He has a great crew, he's reasonably priced and he's flexible with you hiring subs and ordering supplies (saves money). Only challenge is things went more slowly than expected b/c of sub contractors delays but that's part of the game. Great guy.
