About Us

We’ve been together for 12 years, and working together for 9.

Chris’ love of working on things began when he was little and watched “This Old House” for fun – eager to start his own building projects. And for Meryl it was helping her dad around the house and her love of color and design which eventually manifested itself into a bachelor’s degree in studio art from Mills College.

We bought a diamond in the rough in Oakland in 2007 and started ripping down walls and renovating it from the ground up. Along the way our friends and family began hiring us for projects around their own houses. We loved working on both our own house and the houses of others. After a couple of years of pulling double duty we decided to formally start our business – helping others complete their projects.

And we do a little of everything. Please don’t hesitate to give us a call to help you on your next project. We might even bring our assistant – our 4 year old daughter Zoe and her 2 year old sister Merritt.
