Landmark Designs built a concrete retaining wall and fence for us. It was a complicated project given we had extensive and expensive landscaping already in place that he had to plan and work around. This meant that large trees, established plants, huge boulders, irrigation and patio blocks all had to be moved and reinstalled. The new cedar fence was built upon a carefully designed concrete retaining wall which necessitated custom made powder coated steel fence posts. The fence gates were reinforced to ensure "no sagging" with time. All of the work was of very high quality and completed only after through consultation with us as homeowners. Dana is personable and respectful. He was always clearly intent on making sure his work met or exceeded our expectations. Given the complexity, the project was not without unexpected surprises. Dana was able to calmly problem solve and ensure the desired outcome was not compromised. His work is not "cheap" but it definitely is high quality.
Dana Killen designed and built a new shower/locker room for Mobiltex from December 2016 to mid January 2017. Dana provided a clear and concise design layout for us to review which covered the basics we were looking for but he also offered suggestions that added functionality and quality to the overall project.
When starting the project, Dana had all the necessary tools and materials to immediately begin taking down the existing laundry room and begin the conversion over to a shower room. Along the way we encountered unique plumbing issues that Dana was able to overcome because on his experience and ingenuity in finding a viable solution. This allowed us to avoid bringing in a 3rd party contractor to do the work. Dana's work ethic and diversity is a strength as he is able to perform a variety of duties at a high level of competence. He is able to do the heavy jobs (ie. jackhammering concrete) along with the finesse tasks (fine detail carpentry). Dana completed most aspects of the project with a great degree expertise. Areas that did not fall under his domain (ie. electrical) Dana deferred to our own in house resources to complete the task.
Dana sourced all materials for the project and has an extensive network of suppliers that he deals with. Dana was flexible in his approach as we made minor design changes along the way. Dana demonstrated a creative touch as he laid out the floor pattern in a unique herringbone design. He applied the same creativity when designing our teak wooden bench. His meticulous nature did add extra time and cost in constructing the bench but the end result was a superior piece.
Dana was conscientious in his duties and cleaned up the job site on a daily basis.
Upon completion of the project, Dana was available for any additional touch ups that needed to be done.
In the end we were pleased with the final result as our shower/locker room was a stylish but highly functional room. We have used Dana for other projects since then and will continue to use him in the future. I highly recommend Dana Killen as a general contractor.
Dana has completed many projects for me over the years, everything from a full basement and bathroom renovation, yard design and landscaping, decks, custom finishing work, tile, painting and drywall work, Dana does an excellent job at all of it.
Excellent service from a knowledgeable professional and a quality final product. Dana always gave us great advice during the project and displays a wide ranging construction knowledge. We are very happy with his work wouldn't hesitate to call him for any home project.
