Old-School Craftsmanship

We believe in doing things the right way. We have a crew of hardworking, talented craftsmen and woodworkers who are committed to building your vision. Anything that can be built, cut, framed, set, or finished on-site, we do it ourselves to make sure it's done right. By cutting out middlemen and outsourced labor, we are able to reduce your cost as well.

Complete Attention to Detail

We are obsessed with the details. We only pursue a select few projects per year, ensuring we can remain fully committed and focused on your home until every detail is complete. Our management and project leads work on-site to ensure quality work. Your home will have our full and undivided attention from start to finish.

Surf-Shack Chic

"From the exterior, the 3,300-square-foot residence overlooking a sandstone bluff exudes an inviting vibe worthy of its moniker: Chateau Relaxo. Architect James Sneed and builder Bob Dana followed the traditional lines of a shingled Craftsman-style bungalow, but added modern stylistic surprises, including a front deck made of îpe, a weatherproof hardwood popular in Hawaii."

Kindred Spirits

"The end result is definitely what the family was looking for," says Encinitas-based builder Bob Dana, of Dana Construction & Development, Inc., who collaborated on the project. "The place has a real homey, cottage feel." Monroe agrees. "I can't think of one thing I'd change about this house," she says. "I wake up every morning and think to myself, 'I'm so happy that we get to live here!'"
