What can I do next?

K., I have heard Marrokal is good. If you are doing a refinance, I can recommend a company that has no fees, no closing costs and no appraisal fees or points.

Hi K., How nice that you will have a nice addition. Yes, I know someone I'd love to refer. They live in Rancho Bernardo and are Israeli. He was an engineer beforehand so his work is excellent, everything is perfect to the finest detail and he's on time and very pleasant. His name is Eli Cohen and his lovely wife, Nava assists him. She LOVES wood and gets the best deals from Home Depot, etc. and runs the business with him while he does the work. They are very pleasant people to deal with. You can reach them at ###-###-#### or ____@____.com is a licenced contractor and before did everything handyman, but you can ask them for more information. Hope this is helpful. My husband has bought 3 dumps in good neighborhoods and has fixed them. This last time, he had a contractor help him but that was years ago before I knew Eli. He is an engineer, also, and really likes Eli and Nava. My husband does excellent work and fix/do anything. I hope you do at least check them out. C. S

Hello K.,
I know a wonderful local contractor. His name is Eli Cohen and his company name is The Handyman Next Door (although he is not a handyman - he's much more than that).
His contact inforamtion is ###-###-#### and his email is ____@____.com
Please call him for an estiamte. I hope he can help you!
Good luck!

We used a great company - Ted Vollgraff and Associates. The proprietor is Jim Vollgraff - They did a major remodel of our backyard and master bathroom. And then a moderate remodel of kitchen and other bathrooms - hardwood floors, counters, sinks, etc. We received 3 bids and he was not the least expensive, but I can tell you they did great work and when anything went wrong (even after the job was done) he was immediately available to resolve the situation. Btw, something will always go wrong on a remodel or construction project. Our home is in Olivenhain - a burb next to Rancho Santa Fe.

Jim's number is ###-###-#### - I also have a fantastic interior designer who is incredibly affordable and does beautiful, yet intimate, design. She can re-purpose what you already have, or work within your budget to help with whatever project's you are looking to do. Her name is Tobee Jackson ###-###-####.

If you interview either one of them and want to see their work - you are welcome to come to our home. Tell them K. McCauley Kress - referred you. They are both super professional and really pleasant (which matters a lot when you spend over a year with someone in your hair during a remodel!) Nevermind I did invitro, was preg and had my little darling all during this time! lol.

If you are adding a second story, or need your stairs remodeld.....KLEINSMITH STAIR & TRIM, INC. does an outstanding job. Call Dave Kleinsmith at ###-###-####. He can also refer you to a few contractors that he sub-contracts with! Whether you hire a general contractor or not, be sure to have KLEINSMITH STAIR & TRIM come out & give you an estimate!! Good luck with your remodel!

Well, you have already recieved many responses, but I just wanted to add that our contractor did a wonderful job on our remodel. His name is Jerry Stokely (Stokely Construction Co) and his number is ###-###-####. We actually moved our kitchen into another area of our house, so for about 6 months everything but the bedrooms were under contruction. He built a wall between "the work" and our space which included a door with a lock. It was great to have for privacy and so my dogs wouldn't get too stresseed. We were very happy with the job he did, so we have reffered him several times to our friends.
Good luck!

My husband is a license and insured plumbing contractor, he is very fair with pricing and doesn't try to charge you for things that you really don't need. He has several years of experience doing home remodel. Let me know if you would like him to come out and give you an estimate on the plumbing. Thanks Tina
