I'm responsible for the successful completion of many projects such as large residential construction, additions, and remodels for other builders as well as under my own license. I've developed extensive skills as a builder that have informed my approach to project management, interior and exterior design, building, and general contracting.


Some of my favorite work has been the remodel of restaurants, managing the construction of an engineering office and laboratory, and overseeing the conversion of an 1870s-era house into a pre-school. Recently, I've been focusing on smaller-scale design and interior remodels including kitchen, bath, and living areas, as well as exterior work such as decks, pergolas, window treatments, and outdoor living areas.

By paying attention to space usage, color, light, sight lines, air flow, temperature, lifestyle, and intent, I have been able to work with my clients to transform old, ordinary, or problematic buildings into beautiful homes.

I welcome the opportunity to consult with you about your project and I hope that you enjoy viewing my site.

"John has managed several remodel projects for us. Our living area was cramped and narrow, and felt oppressive. His artistic vision and ability to add craftsman details has transformed our vanilla 1970s house into a very comfortable, yet tasteful, home. We frequently receive unsolicited compliments from passersby."

– Donna Franks, Santa Cruz Resident
