Steve did a great job remodeling my front entry space and installing a new screen door. He is very experienced and knowledgeable about how an area should look then following through until it looks just right. He is very detail oriented.

Dahlin was punctual and friendly. He was great at troubleshooting while assembling furniture. He came prepared with all of the tools that were needed. I would recommend him.Jun 15, 2018VerifiedDahlin Design-Build's reply
Steve was great very responsive and took the time to really try and figure out a solution for our not so basic fencing job. His price was a little above average but we got quality work for a fair price. We would hire Steve again with out a doubt.Aug 5, 2017Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Not too complicated, but when there's a fix needed and I can't anticipate how bad it is until I take it apart, I give a range or ballpark estimate and then keep the customer informed as I take it apart as to any revisions of estimates that are necessary.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I'll frequently look on the web for old techniques for old processes or new materials or techniques as well. Fine Homebuilding and the Green Building Advisor are two websites I keep informed with. This Old House is useful as well.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?As a youngster I got involved a little with my uncle and grandfather who were builders. Then when college time came I got interested in civil engineering but that interest waned while I was building houses in the summers and during other breaks. After moving to Texas and working in remodeling with my brother, I discovered the Architectural Engineering school at UT Austin and back I was in school enjoying it. Structural, Environmental, and materials of buildings along with a dose of Architectural history and solar design. During school breaks I could be found building or designing houses. Then I went to try my hand at engineering, and after 4 years with a couple of great firms, realized the desk was not for me. That was 26 years ago and here I am, still enjoying hands-on work and occasional design work as well.
