We've built and managed construction of big and small projects, quite literally. Owner & craftsman Dana's history as construction manager on projects in Southern Oregon for residential and commercial clients expands more than a decade. Honored to serve clients ranging from True South Solar (headquarters), Home Power Magazine (solar array), and as Design Build Manager for Portland based firm, to oversee construction of luxury LEED Platinum certified residence, Passive House residence and Living Building Challenge winery; as also seen through Gnome Constructions' prior residential projects, collaborative projects with local food cooperatives and working side-by-side instructing homeowners involved in construction of their own energy efficient affordable housing communities.
Credited more than once with "turning our project around", Dana has experience and knowledge of building. Licensed, bonded, insured in the State of Oregon & US Certified Passive House Builder.
My experience working with Dana has been incredibly positive. Dana's professionalism and attention to detail are truly exceptional. It is refreshing to meet and work with someone of Dana's experience, integrity and customer service excellence. Past experiences with construction companies have been challenging and cause one to feel that one needs to be monitoring everything to ensure that it is done properly and in a timely manner. I find working with Dana that it allowed me to feel confident and assured that I could relax and know that all of the work will be complete and done to perfection. I especially appreciate that Dana is personally available anytime I have questions and is happy to spend the time assisting me through the building process professionally and with personal attention that I find rare.
Gnome Construction is a step above in that I experienced these qualities:
° They treat their customers and each other with dignity and respect,
° Service is always given with a smile,
° A foundation of trust and loyalty are created with each working relationship.
° Their dedication to community and the environment are evident in all aspects of the work they do.
They are a business of quality, character and heart.
I highly recommend Gnome Construction.
