“We interviewed four builders in March 2002 and were extremely impressed with the work of Dovetail Craftsmen.  Their attention to detail, creativity and craftsmanship set them apart from their competitors.  However, we were not yet convinced that it was best to renovate our home instead of buying something larger.  We decided to take several months to look at homes for sale in our neighborhood.  After six months of looking at over 50 houses, we decided to renovate.  We loved our street, yard and neighbors, so it made the most sense to stay and add on to the current space.  After making the decision, we immediately called Dovetail Craftsmen and they got started on our design.  We moved out in November 2002 and moved back in our new home in June 2003.  We now have a beautiful and spacious home designed to fit our needs.  Our experience with Dovetail Craftsmen was extremely positive and if we ever do another renovation, we will definitely use Todd and Chris.”

"We renovated our house in a pretty major way in 1998, and then worked with Chris and Todd in 2005 on a whole house renovation. Our experience with Chris and Todd was just so different from any other contractor experience we have ever had that there is no way to compare it except this - There are other contractors, and then there is Dovetail.  They are in their own category.  When Chris and Todd were taking us around to look at some of their other projects, prior to our signing a contract with them, we dropped in on one of their former clients, who opened the door and enthusiastically greeted Todd with a hug!  Having never even thought about hugging any contractor with whom we had ever worked, we were impressed.  Todd told us at the time that their goal is, when finished with a job, they want to have the kind of relationship with their clients that they can sit down over a beer.  I believed it was a nice sentiment at the time, but doubted it could ever be true.  But it was!  We have had several beers with Todd, Chris and others from Dovetail since we finished our project, and look forward to many more”

When we hired Dovetail, we were not sure if a second story addition would even work on our house.  Chris not only designed a great floor plan giving us the space we need and then some, he kept the whole look in the style of the neighborhood.  It was awesome!  During the project, the Dovetail team was very helpful in guiding us through the project, providing artistic input on everything from countertops to light fixtures.  They did a great job and we would not hesitate to use Dovetail on any future project.

We realized that probably the most important decision when it comes to renovating your house is the contractor that you chose. I was most concerned that after all was said and done that we would wind up with quality construction and a house that we loved.

We spoke with around 10 different contractors, and we felt most comfortable with our experiences with Dovetail Craftsmen. They were great about showing us their previous work (we looked at probably 8 different houses), and their flexibility with the design stood out.

You could tell that Chris, Todd, and the entire team at Dovetail was most concerned with getting things the way we wanted them.

Everyone on the Dovetail team was very professional, and I would not hesitate to recommend them or use them again.

Dovetail finished the entire project two days earlier than they had told us from the beginning, and everyone loves the house.

You hear tons of 'horror stories' about contractors and remodeling your house but our experience was nothing less than outstanding.
