BALBOA KITCHEN, San Francisco, CA:
I highly recommend Alex and Lisa Nerland for your home design and build projects. I recently engaged Nerland Building & Restoration for a total transformation of an old, dated kitchen in my Edwardian Craftsman home into a brand new kitchen with all the modern amenities that opened up access to the adjoining hallway and dining room. I enjoyed worked closely with Alex and Lisa throughout the entire process, from initial architecture design to putting the final finishing decorative touches into my space.
From start to finish, Alex and Lisa asked the right questions and listened carefully to my input, in order to offer fantastic solutions for meeting my needs and optimizing my space. Lisa’s flair for design and Alex’s detail-oriented construction resulted in a custom kitchen with features and trim that integrated a beautiful and functional modern kitchen while maintaining the period character of my home. Their budget conscious approach means high quality materials and appliances, while not overspending. I appreciate that Alex works with a trusted team he has known for years, so I never had to worry about random subcontractors in my home. The crew took great care to keep the construction site clean and to minimize disruption in my home throughout the project.
Finally, I very much appreciate Alex and Lisa’s personal approach, working together with me to think through suggestions while delivering in a professional manner. My project was completed within budget and on time, with no major surprises along the way! I LOVE my new kitchen and look forward to working with Alex and Lisa again soon for my next home project.
SAUSALITO CENTRAL KITCHEN AND DECK, Sausalito, CA:
I was very happy with my decision to use Nerland Building & Restoration for the complete renovation of my Sausalito home. The renovations started in our outdated kitchen. NBR did such a great job on the kitchen, we expanded our scope to additional projects. After the kitchen, NBR built decks around the entire house– enhancing our already gorgeous views of San Francisco. The last project was a full build out of our downstairs basement including a state-of-the-art media room.
NBR was easy to work with and was able to respond quickly to issues and design solutions on site. Alex Nerland, the owner, is very unique in the fact that he brings an architect’s degree, years of high tech business savvy and expert construction skills to every project. Also, when you have someone in your house every day– and our projects extended almost 2 years– you need to like and trust the builder and his team. All of the workmen were courteous, they kept a very clean workspace, and NBR kept me well apprised of the schedule so that I always knew what was happening next. In short, I can highly recommend Alex and his team. I would hire NBR again in an instant and will be happy to be referral for them anytime.
TIBURON WINE CELLAR, TIBURON FAMILY ROOM, Tiburon, CA:
We could not be happier with the result of our Tiburon remodel we completed with Nerland Building & Restoration. This was our second project with NBR. Since we already knew the quality of the work, we expected great results, but NBR once again exceeded our expectations. For this project, we needed an entire renovation of our downstairs. The space was almost unusable upon moving into the house. With NBR’s help, we created a beautiful wine cellar, a guest bathroom (which was formerly used as a dark room) and a terrific family den/media room. The space was absolutely transformed. It was Alex’s professional, personal touch along with his architect background which lead to magnificent results.
We now have a house with a complete downstairs perfect for our family and entertaining. The attention to detail was amazing as well as Alex’s keen eye to ensure the new spaces matched the aesthetic of the rest of the house. Alex is a natural in his job. His commitment and love of design-build is reflected in every project. I am happy to recommend Alex and NBR and will use them myself again and again.
NOB HILL TOWNHOUSE, San Francisco, CA:
Very detailed oriented with a clean, respectable and professional team. Everything exceeded my expectations. They didn’t just execute on my ideas, they helped create ideas that really brought everything together elegantly. I couldn’t be happier and only have the best of things to say.
