We’ve been together for 14 years, and working together for 11.
Chris’s love of working on things began when he was little and watched “This Old House” for fun – eager to start his own building projects. It started with a bookcase he built for himself, and it only grew from there. 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 the first day we owned it. Along the way our friends and family began asking us for help on projects around their own houses. Soon we found we loved working on both our own house and the houses of others. After a couple of years we decided to formally start our business.
Whether it’s a large scale remodel or small repair, we do a little bit of everything. Please don’t hesitate to give us a call to help you on your next project. We might even bring our assistants – our 5 year old daughter Zoe and 3 year old sister Merritt.
