I have been using Michal Gerard on many upgrades to my house and property for over 5 years. Mike can actually translate the plans I have sketched on a stained cocktail napkin into actual projects that always turn out better than I expected. I have a tendency to design from the top down and Mike knows how to creatively innovate to improve upon my vision. I am glad to have a contractor I can depend upon to do it right.

I have used Mike on four large building or remodeling projects. As an engineer and amateur furniture maker, Mike has several qualities that I appreciate: First, he has years of experience as a respected builder and contractor in the Santa Cruz area. He has excellent judgement and attention to detail. He will do the work correctly, even though it may be behind a wall where nobody will see. He presents me with ideas and alternatives and carefully explains the good and bad points of each approach. Mike's workplace is always kept tidy and neat. Finally, I can count on Mike to go the extra mile, even on a fixed price contract.
