We were lucky enough to find and hire Michael McGuire as our general contractor. The scope of our job was quite large, as it was a complete home remodel. Our remodel included a new addition, new kitchen, new bathrooms with a complete new interior and exterior design plan with modern upgrades to each space. Michael worked with our architect to design a new home that fit both our design aesthetic and our budget. Michael not only assisted in the design process but carried out every vision perfectly. His communication with us throughout the entire process was excellent. As plans changed and unexpected issues arose (which was to be expected), Michael always had options lined up that were not only satisfactory but timely. We get compliments regularly by people walking by our home. We couldn't be happier with all his interior finish work as well. He is not only an excellent general contractor but a true craftsman.Sep 21, 2014

Mike was our GC for the build out of our cafe. He was very easy to work with and did great work at reasonable and fair rates. He's one of the few contractors I've dealt with where I don't have to worry about the legitimacy of what he is billing me for. Everything is always straight forward and makes perfect sense.Sep 28, 2014
Mike is a great contractor, adding a second bathroom with ceramic tile steam shower and tankless hot water in about 6-8 weeks. He does excellent work (the shower glass contractor commented on the great tile work). He sets expectations, listens/explains well, is sensitive in delivering news that will require a change in plan, and has multiple suggestions for changes so there are informed choices. He and his crew clean up at the end of each day, and were all pleasant to be around. I have two dogs and was able to work out a plan to keep the dogs calm and out of the way; it helped that the crew are dog-friendly. I am in the planning stages of the next project I'd like to propose to Mike.May 10, 2015
Hired them to help put some additional bracing in the wall so we could mount some TVs properly. Great work. Extremely satisfied. Laid plastic down over our conference table before doing and cleaned up completely when done.Jan 22, 2016Verified
Mike and Appetite for Construction did some excellent remodeling in our 100 + year old home in the SF. We weren't sure what direction we wanted to take and Mike was able to help us figure it out and get the job done ahead of the deadline. Now we have a beautiful new kitchen and open area that we love to come home to! Thanks Appetite!Apr 25, 2015
