My wife, Cheryl and I had been planning to build our retirement dream home on a special piece of property in Malibu where I had grown up in the 50's and 60's. This property was special because my mom and dad had built the original beach house there when I was 5 years old and we wanted our project to be perfect or as close to that as we could make it.


Choosing the right contractor was one of the most important decisions we had to make. A close friend's daughter and son-in-law had hired Dana and All Creative Construction to do a big remodel on their home. They had repeatedly recommended Dana, but we already had a list of contractors recommended by our architect that we interviewed first. We were discouraged after interviewing the first group of contractors and remembering the recommendation of All Creative Construction, we met with Dana to review our plans.


All Creative Construction turned out to be a great fit, because Dana was enthusiastic to help us accomplish our goals and not headstrong to change our plans. That is not to say that he didn't suggest ideas that would work better from time to time, but it never became a control issue like we have seen some of our friends get into with the contractors they have hired. We found that we could communicate with and trust Dana to convey our ideas to the many subcontractors on the job. Dana was confident enough not to be threatened when we wanted to be involved closely in the project. He was happy to include bids and use subs that we discovered outside of the normal group of contractors he was familiar with.


We love our new home and feel that we have a continuing friendship with Dana, his family and many of his subcontractors. We will always have fond memories of our building experience with All Creative Construction!
